Here are some of the qualities you can find in the Clarion 2: 

Comfort. Expect enduring and strain-free performance with the plush and bouncy cushioning system of this road running shoe

Lockdown. Outfitted with several overlays, a snug, supportive envelopment is generated. This prevents unwanted or premature shoe removal.
