Tech Profile: The Cloud Hi Waterproof

Introducing the latest addition to the Cloud Hi family. It’s the higher profile, high-comfort all-day shoe ready for any weather. This is a look at the tech behind the Cloud Hi Waterproof.


We took inspiration from our iconic Cloud and created a higher silhouette for even more support and protection. Now, the waterproof edition takes that protection to the next level. 


Element-proof comfort every day.


We engineered the upper with three layers for durable, reliable waterproofing. 


An outer layer constructed from vegan leather on forefoot and woven fabric on the quarters are both DWR treated. That means water rolls right off, and wild winds can’t make it through. A fully waterproof membrane sits below the upper layer and breathable inner lining keeps you cool and fresh. So rain or shine, you’re ready to go.



CloudTec® in Helion™ superfoam 


We took revolutionary technology from our elite running shoes and engineered it for your all day. A CloudTec® outsole in Helion™ superfoam delivers a soft landing followed by an explosive takeoff. The clouds absorb your energy as your foot strikes the ground, cushioning your step for a noticeably light and responsive step. 


And Helion is just that – superfoam. It’s light in weight and big on energy return. It’s resistant to temperature changes, so even when the weather is unpredictable, you can rest assured you’ll have all-day comfort all seasons.


Plus, we engineered a bold traction pattern underfoot for more grip and stability. Asymmetric channels embossed across the cloud elements and forefoot allow water to escape, providing more grip to the surface below.


The Cloud Hi Waterproof was made to move on hard surfaces. Explore cities and travel to new places, even in wet conditions. 



Signature Speedboard®


Uniquely adapted for the Cloud Hi Waterproof, a concealed Speedboard® sits between the CloudTec® and upper body. Working together with the cloud elements, the Speedboard® adapts to your natural rolling motion, propelling you forward with each step.


Inspired by an icon


We took the speed-lacing system from our best-selling Cloud and adapted it for the Cloud Hi silhouette. Forget tying laces – just pull on, clip and go. The LoopLock fastening means you can quickly release and secure yourself each time you step in and out. Less time adjusting laces, more time focusing on your destination.  


A high-cushioned collar provides a snug, supportive fit while still allowing for unrestricted movement. Plus, we added extra cushioning to the tongue too for a superior snug feel when you step in. 


The Cloud Hi Waterproof is ready for city exploration and urban adventures. Any time. Any weather. No Excuses.
