On Cloudneo are shoes that you rent, rather than own. They are designed for running but you can also use them for walking. They are designed for dry, warm weather, rather than wet. They are designed to last from three months to six months depending on how quickly you wear them out. They are brilliantly white when new, but within two or three runs they lose their luminescence.

Circular – Use – Reuse

These shoes are designed to reduce the carbon footprint of the shoes we wear. They are made from beans, rather than petroleum based products. Once you’re done with a pair you send it back to the manufacturer, so that they are grounded back down and turned into a new pair of shoes. In theory you never own them. In practice they are just extremely easy to recycle.

Comfort When Running

I have run with them in heavy rain, sunny weather, through grass, mud and a river that was running down a road. I was so used to the trail glove 7 that I had to get used to normal shoes, and the difference in the feel and centre of gravity. I found that with these shoes my ankles rolled on uneven terrain. I attribute this to being used to barefoot shoes, rather than a design flaw.

With some running shoes I notice that I feel knee strain if I run too hard, or after a certain distance. I find that with these shoes my knees feel okay. I have run five or more kilometres several times.

Slippery when Wet

The shoes are designed for warm, dry weather so when you’re running in Switzerland, over slippery surfaces you will slip and show that you were a snowboarder or skier multiple times. They’re sub-optimal for rainy and muddy conditions. When it’s raining water will make its way through to your socks within seconds or minutes. The one advantage with these shoes is that they’re made from such minimal material that if they get wet they dry by themselves overnight, ready for the next day. Shoes that dry quickly don’t need to be waterproof because they dry fast.

Walking Comfort

Although they are not marketed or purposed as walking shoes I have used them on a variety of walks. They felt good until I tightened the laces. I could feel a pressure point where I had accidentally flipped the lace around. When I identified that this was the problem they were more comfortable to wear, once again. When I run up and down the stairs in this building they’re quieter than other shoes.

Mud Removal

Although the shoes are mediocre to bad in mud they are very easy to brush clean once you get home after a run or walk. This is important to me. In Autumn, Winter and Spring shoes can get very muddy. The lack of tread that makes them bad in the wet makes them great for cleaning. A few brush strokes and they’re clean, ready for walking indoors.


These shoes are designed to last for about 600 kilometres, as are most shoes, so if you run or walk a lot you will replace them sooner than every six months. After 45 days of use, but without a clear idea of distance, although at least 75 kilometres the only signs of wear are a slight loss of tread on the front of the shoe, and a discoloration on the rest of the shoe. Running in muddy and flooded conditions has that effect on shoes. If you walk and run 240 kilometres per month you will replace them within three months.

If you replace your shoes after three months they have cost you 105 CHF. If you replace them after six months they have cost 210 CHF. The more you walk and run in them, the sooner they need to be replaced, and the more rational they are to own.


At the moment Cloudneo shoes are designed for running on asphalt, rather than mud or gravel. They’re good on dry surfaces but tend to slip on painted road surfaces and slick mud. If it’s raining your feet will get wet although despite running in 6°c temperatures my feet did not get cold.

Niche Use

I walk eight kilometres per day. This comes to 720 kilometres every three months. If I replace my shoes every three months then I go through four pairs of shoes per year. By using the Neocloud shoes for walking and running the shoes that I used for three months are recycled and reused for the same purpose.

And Finally

You have a month to see that the shoes fit. They prefer for you to test them for fit indoors, so that the shoes do not get dirty as this would result in them being recycled too early, rather than reused by someone without recycling. The minimum contract duration after the one month trial is six months which comes to 210 francs. If you use one pair per six months they cost that to own. If you replace them after three months this falls to 105 Francs.

It doesn’t bother me that shoes are not weatherproof but it does bother me that the sole doesn’t have grip on wet and muddy surfaces. Yesterday I slid several times walking out of the village. With other shoes I wouldn’t. They need to provide shoes that are good in wet and muddy conditions so that this becomes a year round solution, rather than in good road conditions.

These shoes are not worth 210 CHF, and at 105 CHF they’re still expensive compared to other options. I feel that this is a six month experiment, to experience high end running shoes but that when I can I will end the contract.

Can any #walking mastonauts (UK based) recommend women’s leather walking boots with a roomy toe box please? I’m looking for all leather to replace existing winter boots (knackered & actually not roomy enough on long walks). Tried everything in one local store.

Excerpt from the abstract: ”— Results suggest that each kilometer driven by car incurs an external cost of €0.11, while cycling and walking represent benefits of €0.18 and €0.37 per kilometer. Extrapolated to the total number of passenger kilometers driven, cycled or walked in the European Union, the cost of automobility is about €500 billion per year. Due to positive health effects, cycling is an external benefit worth €24 billion per year and walking €66 billion per year. —”

Picard: “An Insurance Institute for Highway Safety study includes this chilling statistic: If you are struck by a vehicle turning right, the odds of death are 89 per cent higher if it’s a pickup, and 63 per cent higher if it’s an SUV. Deaths are just the tip of the iceberg. Many more pedestrians are injured in collisions. This often occurs because drivers are distracted, or rushing.” #walking #ottawalkers #autowa

I have a lot to do, so working after work. I really don't have time doing Mastodon, but still writing about a stream I visited yesterday. I guess I need to do these activities - walking/fishing/mastodon - so that I can work 🤔

#FlyFishing #Walking #Nature #Working #Mastodon

Langford Run - a tributary of Darby Creek, PA

Passing by a small tributary while tenkara fishing. I never fished this tributary🤔
Lots of gravels and rocks without much water. But I know there are some pools upstream that have small fish 😉
I also realized that I never checked the temperature of this tributary during summer. Considering that this confluence is a good fishing spot, the water may be colder than the main stream 🤔

#FlyFishing #Fishing #Tenkara #Hiking #Walking #Creek #Nature

This tributary, running through suburban area, is surrounded by riparian vegetation and trees (without much leaves now). It is probably about 15 feet wide and filled with a lot of gravels and rocks. There is not much water running considering its width, but it never dries up, feeding into Darby Creek you can see in front (with a good amount of water). It is a rainy day, and close to sunset, and it is getting dark.

I had a good legstretch today. Got the bus to Churston (near Brixham) then walked to beautiful Elberry Cove before heading back inland, following the Greenway Walk to Agatha Christie’s Greenway House. Ferry across to Dittisham (very nice ferryman quietly took boat past the seal hanging out on a pontoon) & then along the Dart Valley Trail to Dartmouth, & my bus home. About 11 miles in all. Back in front of a computer tomorrow so glad to make the most of the ☀️.

Photo of a beach in a cove. It’s a winter morning and the bright but low sun is causing high contrast. The beach in the foreground is almost black in shadow. A ruined building at the far right is no more than a silhouette. This building was a Lord Churston’s bathhouse. Once it had three storeys with a lower floor that would flood when the tide came in so that the lord and his fancy guests could swim straight out into the water without mingling with the hoi polloi on the shingle beach. The water in the cove is clear, calm and blue, reflecting the sky above which is mostly cloudless. On the far side of the cove is a seaside resort with its many white buildings. A low bank of cloud hangs over the town, a rainbow arching down to the ground. Rain is approaching.
A view across parkland towards a river. The green, grassy parkland - mostly in shade with long shadows - sweeps down to a line of trees which catches the sun. The trees are mostly deciduous and bare of leaves but some are the rust of autumn and two tall pine trees stand together in the centre of the frame. A curve of the river lies beyond the trees, its surface shining silver-blue. Across the water are wooded banks which reach down to the water’s edge. The sky is cloudy, threatening rain, but with large patches of blue, which give the water its hue.
A view back along a wooded footpath that runs alongside a creek on the right of the frame. The path is littered with fallen leaves, a rusty-brown. The trees beside the path are mostly bare, just a few brown leaves hanging on. Several trunks are entwined with ivy, providing a bit of green, along with holly bushes. The woodland slopes down to the left of the path, its floor a tangle of green brambles and red-brown bracken. Through the branches the sky is blue with a few white fluffy clouds. The water of the creek reflects it back. A few yachts are just visible in the gaps between trees, as too are scattered buildings on the far bank.
A view down a narrow, stepped lane between tall houses. The steps are surfaced with rectangular, brick-sized, tiles in shades of brown and ochre, and with a criss-cross pattern. A handrail runs down the centre. The houses either side are in shades of blue, white and cream. Most of them have plant pots along their frontages. The lane turns to the right and out of frame. There is a wedge of blue sky above, with a few white fluffy clouds.

Kinzel Lake: Camping Day 3

Finished my trip by hiking up to Kinzel Lake via the Salmon River Trail. The Salmon-Huckleberry Wilderness is an amazing place, can’t believe I haven’t hiked in this area before.

Paris has revealed plans for pedestrianizing the city that include creating 100 hectares of new pedestrian space by 2030 and transforming car lanes to human-friendly pathways and rain gardens.

Love this part: "walking is free, it's emission-free, it's noise-free, it's good for your health and, as we see every time we pedestrianise, it's also good for local businesses."

People-friendly cities for the win! 🚶‍♀️ 🌳 🚴‍♂️
