The atmos team’s take on the Cloudnova

Revered for their inside knowledge on iconic sneakers and streetwear, the Tokyo-based atmos team discuss a new breed of shoe, the ultra-limited Cloudnova.


On Thursday, April 30, 2020, we Hit Refresh. Ten years of Swiss-engineered running tech collided with the world of all-day sneaker style. And the Cloudnova caused quite the stir. 


A draw decided on the ultra-limited number of people who are now sporting the sold-out White | Umber and Black | Eclipse colorways. 


Back in February, we gave G-Ken, manager of the atmos BLUE store in Tokyo, an early look at the Cloudnova to get his reaction to the shoe that GQ is now calling the first great sneaker of the WFH era


“It truly feels like an evolution,” he says. “But at the same time totally original. It’s like the Swiss company’s running technology has been unleashed onto the street and fashion scenes." 


Anytime I see people in another brand, I say, 'What? You’re still not wearing Ons?'
