I am returning these shoes because they did not hold up. I have only had them 3 months and the inner rear fabric has frayed through. I did not use them for the first month during the quarantine so have really just used them for 2 months. I reached out to On directly and they have not returned or answered my emails. I am thankful to have ordered through Zappos. I will exchange and give them another chance but so far am highly disappointed in this brand.

At first I really loved these shoes and my only complaint was the squeaky sound on some wet surfaces. But it's been a number of months down the line and I have some complaints. The slip-on lacing feature is nice and convenient for a while, but I found that if you are on a trail, uneven surfaces, or are moving faster than a walk, you have to put the laces on. If you travel on gravel paths, these shoes are a nightmare. The soles suck up rocks like nothing else. But that's not the worst of it. I can't go more than a mile without getting a piece of gravel in the shoe. I'm constantly stopping, taking these off, and dumping out small rocks. I'm finding the soles are wearing out pretty quickly. But the biggest fail about the soles is that I'm experiencing a large heel pronation on one foot only, so much so that my heel is actually stepping on the side of the shoe. My wife even noticed it from behind. I've never experience this kind of heel pronation in any other pair of shoes. I'm beginning to think that it was a defect in the sole and I didn't notice it early on.

Great and very light shoe

I *really* want to love these shoes, as they have many positives to them. First, they are extremely comfortable, even without socks when out and about. They look very sharp! You'll get compliments and forget that you have them on your feet due to how comfy they are to stroll around! However, I ran 10 miles in them today. My heel was slipping and my forefoot was hurting on both feet, on both sides. I have a wide foot but never had a problem with Hokas or Brooks as in, 8 miles in, I was dying to be done with my run just because of the pain. Otherwise, I was so happy to continue my run. I am usually a size 8 in runners. In On, I take an 8.5....except maybe these? Even if I did go down to an 8, that would only make the toe box tighter. ouch! Last, and most importantly, as I could see the addition of this solving all negative problems I had with the shoe: Why, oh why, ON, would you *not* put a runner's eyelet at the top of a RUNNING shoe?! I l always use the runners loop to lock my heel down. It works wonders in the Cloudflow and Cloudstratus (etc, etc). I was hoping to find a way around this but, for serious runners, I could see this being a problem. Very sad to send them back but happy with other On styles and always shop Zappos for the best customer service in running shoes!

BEST SHOES EVER--like running on a cushion and helps if you have a bit of over-pronation. I have worn so many different types of running shoes over the years and these are my latest loves. Try them out and I promise you won't be disappointed.

For some reason I didn't listen to the recommendations to go up in size - I'm pretty sure I'd need a whole size up for these. I'm not going to re-order though, since my heel already is slipping out and I think it would be more of a problem with a bigger size. I do like the look pretty well, but am looking for something more lightweight and a bit less bulky.

Bought these to replace pair that were worn out. My husband liked them for running. However, this pair came in mis-matched widths. Returning them.

I loved my old Cloudventures and am not disappointed in these! I love them for trail running - the sole stands up to rocks and wear better than any other shoe I’ve worn. Yet they are lightweight enough for fluid movement. I gave all 5 stars because I have loved this style for years, but they do have a couple of faults. They are roomy around the top of the foot and don’t always tie as tight as I would like. My feet don’t come out of the heel, but I can tell it’s a looser fit.
Zappos Reviewer on July 10, 2020
The fit was good. This is my second pair I had and I loved the first pair. This pair has already ripped in the heal and gives me constant blisters. I wear them daily for my walks but it’s time to try another brand.

Nice fit without being overly snug
Tyler from Tyler tx on July 09, 2020
I bought these based on reviews. I have always purchased Nike, but wanted something new that gave more more support. These were the most comfortable pair of trail runners I have put on out of the box - I didn't have to break them in. I absolutely love these.

I'm a 145 lb runner logging ~30 miles per week. If you're looking for a lightweight trainer that has great cushion as a low profile shoe, this is a great candidate. I have tried two other running shoes from On, but this is by far my favorite. Could even be used as a racing flat if you need a little more support than the typical racer. I am able to get 350-400 miles out of these. Just ordered my 2nd pair.
Josh from Denver, CO on July 07, 2020
So, I saw this all over the place and decided to true them. I wore them once on my morning walk and now I have blisters all over my feet. So uncomfortable and I was so disappointed in them. I guess I will go back to my Brooks.

These are stylish and so comfy! Great construction!

This is an honest review. I am a long distance runner and currently training for a marathon this fall. I have had many shoes over the years, Nike, Brooks, Altra's etc... I was currently unhappy with many of the Brands I have previously loved as they keep changing the styles and fits of them. I wanted to try a new brand that was good for running thus trying the On's CloudFlyer. First of all the name is deceiving as your feet do not feel like they are on a cloud. This style is not great from the first time on my foot. I know immediately when a shoe is going to be good. These were super light which was good but felt cheaply made. There is absolutely no padding or cushion inside the shoe. Felt horrible every time my foot struck the ground. I tried them outside once and inside once on the treadmill. My feet went numb on the treadmill at 9 miles and my knees started hurting. They are a cute style but definitely not comfortable for someone who does a lot of running. I honestly would not recommend these to anyone. I would take my Brooks any day over these. I would say they rank up there with one of the worst style fits for running I have had in the past year and I have tried many styles and brands this year trying to get something that was comfortable for the longer runs. Still searching for now.......

I usually wear a 6-6.5 and the 6.5 fit perfectly!! These are some of the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn!!!!
Zappos Reviewer on July 06, 2020
I have been struggling to find a good shoe for pavement and the treadmill. This one is it! My only complaint is that I wish there were more color options in this style. I will be ordering another pair!
Zappos Reviewer on July 04, 2020
I love Cloud shoes -- own 4 pairs. Was hoping the Cloudflyer waterproof would be a good addition for wet, cold conditions. Unfortunately, the shoe is too narrow for me. Guessing they must ave just taken the regular Cloudflyer and added a lining. Result, as a few other reviews have noted, is a shoe too narrow for my normal width feet. Perhaps would be okay for someone with narrow feet. As always, the Zappos' service and return procedures are awesome.
JoeD from Chicago on July 04, 2020
Very low quality interior material around interior heel. It wears down very quickly. Surprising for a Swiss-made product. I’ve bought two shoes from this company but decided to go back to Adidas shoes which last a lot longer and are made with better, more durable material. I would only buy On again if I verify that they are using reinforced and tougher materials. It’s a shame because they are very comfortable, and the style and look is very nice (when new and only for a couple of months). As a consumer, I expect better quality at this price point. And again, Swiss-made products are usually of much higher quality. The rubber sole also ripped. Wish I could have my money back.
Carlos from Charleston, SC on July 04, 2020
there is not enough toe room; the height of toe room is very low , as well as whole shoe height from the sole up to the upper surface of the shoe; shoe length and width is OK
Anna from Novato, CA on July 03, 2020
This is a comfy shoe, but I have very overly pronated feet and needed way more support (motion control is what I need) than these provided. I kept a pair of SAS Journey Mesh Blues and a pair of Mizuno Wave Horizon 4. The Mizonos wouldn't have quite provided enough support for me with with just the insole that comes with them, but when I slipped my custom orthotics in, they were perfect! The SAS shoes definitely are closer to motion control, but not nearly as comfortable. Here's the deal though. I had a hamstring pull a few months ago and have been doing physical therapy. The physical therapist suggested replacing my Natives that provided arch support with good motion control running shoes. After only a day wearing the right shoes, the chronic hamstring pain I've had for nearly a year started to improve and it's now gone. If you need some arch support but not as much as I do, these ON shoes are the bomb. I wish I could keep them, but at 63 years old I need to focus on support not style. Loved these shoes and hate to send them back.
K from Miammi on July 03, 2020
After reading the "true to size" reviews, I decided to order my standard size (10). When I first tried them on, the felt too tight. Because i want to run in them, I returned them for a 10.5.. They are a perfect fit and I have more toe space for running! i just reordered another color in the 10.5.. Can't wait to get them. Oh, and they are SUPER-COMFY!
Shelly from Rosenberg, Texas on July 03, 2020
I have never had so much foot pain after wearing these shoes. The back of the shoe comes up high on the heel and I am still nursing the worst blister ever. Did not offer much cushion during my walk.
