As a passionate runner and shoe enthusiast, I was ecstatic to get my hands on the highly anticipated On Cloudrunner 2 running shoes. This latest release from the innovative Swiss brand takes cloud-like cushioning and comfort to new heights. Here's my in-depth review of these must-have running kicks.

The Cloudrunner 2 arrives with a litany of upgrades from its popular predecessor. Featuring a 100% recycled Swiss-engineered mesh upper, it combines breathability with sustainable materials. But the real showstopper is the new Helion™ superfoam midsole. This next-level cushioning technology provides incredible softness and energy return mile after mile.

From the moment I laced them up, the plush tongue and cushioned interior hugged my feet in sumptuous comfort. On my first run, the 10mm heel-to-toe drop and CloudTec® cushioning system absorbed shocks and impacts effortlessly. Every stride felt smooth and seamless, like running on, well, clouds.

What's new is an updated outsole that prevents small rocks and debris from getting trapped as you run. Little annoyances become a thing of the past. The durable heel clip and upper reinforcements also add lockdown support when picking up the pace.

For $149.95, you get a premium road running shoe that performs for everything from short jogs to marathons. The cushioning is truly plush yet offers stable guidance. Whether you're a seasoned athlete or just getting into running, the Cloudrunner 2 delivers the smooth, responsive ride you need.

On is even releasing a wide-width version soon to cater to more foot shapes. Between the current range of stylish colorways and diversifying fits, there's a Cloudrunner 2 for every runner.

In the Cloudrunner 2, On has crafted a supremely comfortable shoe that doesn't compromise on performance. With its perfect blend of cushioning, energy return, and reliable support, your running experience will be taken to new heights. Lace Up, stride out, and experience the future of running footwear.
