Have you ever bought or won shoes that end up at the bottom of a shoe basket at the top of your stairs? Have you ever dug them up years later to find out that you like them?
Running in my Vibram Five Fingers has been great, but this morning my feet needed a break. I needed a pair of shoes that I hadn’t worn out. So I dug up a pair of On running shoes that I have had for a couple of years and never worn. The hardness of the sole made me question whether this was a good idea, but I decided to test them out anyway.
I ran 4 miles in them (between 7:30/mile and 8:00/mile pace) and I was surprised at how light and responsive they felt. They are light shoes to begin with; however, I have been running in barefoot shoes, so I didn’t expect them to feel as light as they did. Additionally, the hardness that concerned me felt more like responsiveness and spring!
The On Cloud Racer is now the On Cloud Rush. The Rush has an inner sock-like lining and added cushioning for the heel.
