A few years back my brother-in-law introduced me to these running shoes made by a Swiss company called On Running. I was intrigued by the look. Also the fact that they were not the mass market Nike Free that everyone seems to wear. I'm not a fan of the Nike Free as we have a lot of gravel pavements in Seattle, and it seems gravel loves to get wedged in them. But I love the weight and lightness of them.
Last year I picked up a pair of the On Running Cloud edition Sneaker. I loved the slip on feel (they come with laces that don't need to be tied, but also traditional laces), the lightness and cushion they provide. They are super comfy and I get a lot of compliments on them.
This past week I picked up a black and gray pair. The same pair my Dad happens to have. He uses them as his daily walking shoes.
I think they look really awesome
They are reasonably priced, readily available from Zappos, and designed for men and women. Highly recommended and perfect for travel.
