When money’s no problem, the best shoes on the market offer a premium level of run-boosting tech and cushioning


On Cloudflash


On’s ‘fastest ever running shoe’ weighs in at a feather-light 220g. Of course, the Swiss brand’s trademark ‘cloud’ cushioning remains, but the shoes other elements are stripped back to the extreme. The midsole, for example, well, there isn’t one. Instead, On have opted for a thin and flexible Speedboard – saving on weight and maximising the push-off phase. The upper, too, is indicative of On’s drive to ‘deliver everything with nothing’; thin mesh is reinforced by an Exoskeleton design that keeps your foot locked in without feeling restrictive. The durability of the Cloudflash will be called into question if you’re looking to clock marathon miles, but for summer speed you won’t find a more responsive, at-one-with-your-foot option.
