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
Have been running in the Cloud for a few weeks now. Like the upper very much as well as the responsive (not mushy) mid-sole. My question is have you considered making a lower drop (even zero drop) version. I think it would suit the ride of these shoes well.
Mit Sport habe ich eigentlich nichts am Hut. Ich bin aber beruflich viel unterwegs, in Großstädten mit öffentlichen Verkehrsmitteln; es ist ein ständiger Wechsel zwischen gebremstem Gehen, Treppensteigen, Balancieren und hauptsächlich Stehen. Da werden die Füße schnell bleischwer und schwellen an. In den meisten Schuhen kriege ich schmerzhafte Blasen, besonders bei warmer Witterung.
Allerdings ist das vorbei, seit ich diese Schuhe entdeckt habe. Die Füße kriegen Luft, sie schwitzen nicht und es gibt auch keine Scheuerstellen. Die Sohle ist eine echte Entlastung, man läuft wie barfuß auf einer Rasenfläche. Dazu sehen sie natürlich cool aus.
Tipp für Damen mit breiten Füßen und hohem Spann: Herrenschuhe kaufen und anderthalb Nummern größer als gewohnt nehmen.
The cushioning works. After a run, my knees and legs are noticeably less sore. As a heel-to-toe runner, the difference is especially apparent. The shoes are also very lightweight, which is unique considering the amount of cushioning they provide.
