Separated by a central channel, the CloudTec® sole responds to your individual gait. The Cloud elements are affixed directly to a semi-transparent Speedboard allowing each Cloud element to move individually.
The Cloud is the lightest fully cushioned performance running shoe in the world. Designed for runners who want a minimal running shoe with maximum cushioning. Built from Zero-Gravity foam, the Cloud weighs less than 200 grams, making it a perfect lightweight performer.
The CloudTec® sole is formed from a super-light, flexible and responsive Zero-Gravity EVA foam. Additionally, the deepflex grooves provide a natural range of motion and extreme flexibility.
Forget about lacing up your running shoes: The On Cloud features an easy-entry lacing system that can be adapted to your foot. A conventional lace comes with every Cloud for tighter lacing.

The Cloud with Zero-Gravity foam and On’s patented Swiss CloudTec® technology is the lightest running shoe in the world, with outstanding cushioning and impact protection. In other words, reduced to the pure maximum. Experience the combination of a soft landing with an explosive takeoff for an unbelievably light running sensation.
Right from the start, Swiss Olympic Gold medalist Nicola Spirig made the Cloud her shoe of choice: “I even realized a new personal best in my first race after the Olympics with the Cloud”. At the 2014 European Athletics Championships in Zurich, Nicola set her new personal record at the marathon distance with 2:37:12. But that wasn’t enough. In December 2014, she entered new territory: She laced up her Cloud for her first Ironman race in Cozumel, Mexico - and won the race running the 41.2 kilometers in 3:06:19 - after a 3.8 kilometer swim and a 180 kilometer bike ride.
In 2015 the Cloud was awarded the prestigious Gold Award at ISPO, the international sporting goods trade fair, as the 2015 best performance running shoe. "The Cloud from the young Swiss running shoe brand On attracts runners and athletes of all endurance sports. It is a lightweight training shoe, yet it provides comfortable cushioning through the special cushioning system of the midsole and outsole construction. The stylish upper material is very breathable and a true design statement for running shoes”. Urs Weber, from Runner’s World and in the ISPO-Jury
I train in usually 3-4 pairs of shoes, and I now look forward to the rotations with these! I absolutely love them. This is by far the lightest shoe I've used for training, and it is so flexible and comfortable, and I can feel muscles activated that I don't use in every shoe. I'm still a little nervous to see how they feel in a marathon, but excited to try them in one.
I'm on to my third pair of Clouds and I absolutely love them. I have struggled with shin splints and other over use type injuries in the past and have been injury free ever since switching to clouds. I have run two marathons, multiple halves and lots of triathlons and they're great for race day and everything in between. They are the perfect hybrid of support and a natural lightweight shoe. Couldn't recommend highly enough.
I run track and cross country and these are the best shoes I have ever worn. I used to have problems with shin splints and stuff like that, but it's virtually gone away since then. They're really supportive and cushioned, but they don't feel clunky or heavy in the slightest. I'd recommend them to any runner.
