Clear Weather Shows off the Cloud Stryk

Most streetwear and lifestyle brands have converged on Las Vegas for the Agenda Trade Show. The show is usually the site of some serious flossing by companies when they showcase what they have coming down the pipeline for the next season, or even next year. Clear Weather is at Agenda and although the brand is more known for lifestyle focused silhouettes with vulcanized soles, its new Cloud Stryk model is taking things in a more tech-focused direction.

Low top runners that show off different material construction are huge right now. Let’s be honest, it’s easier to rock these low tops daily than super high cut basketball shoes. (That isn’t to say I don’t love a good tech-heavy hightop, I do!)

The Clear Weather Cloud Stryk jumps right into the deep end of material construction along the lines of the Nike Air Huarache or the Adidas Crazylight Boost 2016. These things are low cut and slightly asymmetrical on the upper. A new addition for the brand also comes in the form of a compression molded EVA midsole.

A neoprene sock-like upper gives it some of that retro-inspired feel that is very popular right now. The inclusion of suede around the toe highlights the marriage of different inspirations. The lacing setup is super wide which I feel like might allow more room to get the fit just right.

I have really dug what Clear Weather has put out in the past with the One-O-One and the One-Ten. This model might have some more appeal for people unfamiliar with the brand.

So far, we have seen images of an all-black model and a white and grey colorway with hits of red. These are set for a Spring 2017 release and the sizing will run from 4-13. Pricing is TBD. Do you like this new model? Let us know down below.

  1. Not interested 🙁 I don’t see any model “breathable” enough. My barefeet are starting sweating on the floor just by looking at the pictures :-/ .
