The On Cloudstratus 3 running shoes have been updated with more cushioning, an improved Speedboard and a better fitting upper. It still features a double layer of On’s famed CloudTec and Helion superfoam cushioning. As good as CloudTec cushioning is, it’s pretty annoying when a stone gets stuck in the bottom. To eliminate this, the updated Cloudstratus midsole has been closed off. While this delivers slightly more cushioning, it stops any stones being collected. This altered midsole is coupled with a revised Speedboard formula. Now made with a nylon blend, the Cloudstratus 3 should feel even springier than before. We position the On Cloudstratus 3 running shoes in our Connected Experience category. That’s because they feel very protective, but also extremely responsive. When you’re cruising along at slower paces, the midsole absorbs the impact of landing and rolls you forward. However, when you pick up the pace, the midsole comes alive and the Speedboard kicks into action. It’s these qualities that make the Cloudstratus 3 running shoes true all-rounders. When it comes to the upper, everything personifies performance and comfort. Even though the upper feels light and finely tuned, padding is placed in all the right areas. A progression of the midfoot-lock down wings deliver even more support than the previous version. It’s fair to say the On Cloudstratus 3 upper feels great during faster-paced runs and long slow miles. We also agree the Cloudstratus 3 looks amazing - like most On running shoes do. While it’s a great idea to use different running shoes for varying paces of runs, the Cloudstratus 3 running shoes are suitable for a wide array of efforts. As a result, if you’re looking for one pair of running shoes that perform on recovery runs, steady efforts, long distances and even some intervals, these are a great choice. Alternatively, if you’re wondering where best to fit the Cloudstratus 3 running shoes into your shoe rotation, we suggest using them on your steady effort runs. That’s ultimately because the midsole feels best when running with purpose, irrespective of distance.
