2015 Triathlete Buyer’s Guide: Running Shoes

On Cloudster

$130, On-running.com
The draw: Everyday trainer

Billed as a training shoe for all types of athletes, On’s “entry-level” Cloudster offers a structured, secure fit with a soft landing off of its 7mm heel-to-toe drop. “The circular rubber knobs on the sole feel like they grip the ground for a quick push-off,” said one tester. “It’s good for keeping speed during longer runs.” The Cloudster follows suit with On’s other models with their signature cushy tongue and breathable upper material.
