The Draw: Diverse Trainer with Swiss Engineering
On is making strides in the running market, and the Cloud X helps the company fill in its line with a versatile lightweight trainer that shines on high-turnover efforts. Using On’s foam cushioning cells of various thickness and size, the Cloud X is light and airy with a firm, responsive ride. The upper is detail-oriented and somewhat low in volume without restricting motion. The heel collar uses molded pads to cushion and provide comfortable foot-holding stability. The engineered mesh upper was breathable and flexible enough to allow for a seamless, dynamic, and snug feel. (Women’s shown in photo)
