Look, I love a chunky shoe. When it comes to a sole, the bigger the better for me. And adding On’s performance technology only heightens my enthusiasm for the new Cloudmonster running and training shoe. What we’re seeing in the shoe world is a lessening of rigid aesthetics for a more conscious understanding of performance. With the Cloudmonster, the chunky sole has proprietary CloudTec cushioning and Speedboard integration. The latter is a propulsion cushion to expand a run while the former’s cushioning is activated on the landing. The honeycomb structure of the sole assists with this as well. And, considering it’s made from 80% recycled materials, you can feel good wearing these on Earth Day later this month. You can grab yours for $170.
