Prada Cloudbust Review
Prada is a big name in the fashion industry, usually known for their luxurious and well-crafted products such as handbags and shoes. When you hear the name Prada you might not think about sneakers, but that is what they are bringing you with the Cloudbust series. The fashionable sneakers have quite a unique design that customers will either love or hate. They take their inspiration right out of the pages of a sci-fi novel or comic book series. They have the big and chunky soles that you would expect out of the 90s and a strap enclosure you might not expect to see in a pair of high-end sneakers such as these. They may have a strange and unusual look to them, but you should not always judge a book by its cover. The great quality materials ensure that durability will not be an issue for you, they are not going to fall apart any time soon. They may not be the most practical pair of sneakers you have in your closet, but they are comfortable and your feet will thank you for that. Whether you need something to wear while running errands or you are simply hanging out with a group of friends, these shoes will be a welcome addition to your wardrobe.

These sneakers do not use a conventional lacing system as many other sneakers do, they actually use a strap enclosure to ensure your feet stay snug and secure while you are wearing them. Some reviewers found it odd that a pair of Prada sneakers would use a velcro enclosure, but it seems to work for them and just adds to their unique look.
The rubber outsole is thick and durable, it will not wear down too quickly while you are wearing them. The same goes for the comfortable padding of the insole and midsole, the cushioning is not going to flatten out and wear down any time soon. The uppers are made out of a nice polyester mesh that will not rip easily at all, and the rubber detailing follows suit. These shoes are in it for the long haul.
The Cloudbust's are more of a casual sneaker, something that you can wear from day to day to run your errands or simply wear to work. That being said, some reviewers stated that these are not exactly the most practical pair of shoes on the market. They are comfortable enough, but the unique look and design make them stick out like a sore thumb. Customers do wear them with a plethora of different outfits, but they seem to look best with a pair of jeans or joggers. They are definitely not dressy or business shoes so it best to leave them at home if you are going for a night out on the town or into the office. However, when just casually hanging out with your friends or doing some shopping these sneakers will be a good choice if you do not mind drawing attention to your feet wherever you go.
The soft breathable materials of the uppers and snug and secure fit also contribute to the great experience you will have when you are wearing these. The use of the strap enclosure as opposed to a traditional lacing closure helps make sure you stay locked into your shoes for a snug like fit that feels like they are hugging your feet.
When purchasing the Prada Cloudbust sneakers you will notice that they are only available in Euro sizes so if you are in the need for US or UK sizing then you should consult a conversion chart so you can make sure you get the right size. There can be some confusion among customers when it comes to the sizing so it is imperative that you pay attention to what you are ordering to ensure the perfect fit.
