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
As an older big guy (220lbs, 100kg) I'm hard on shoes. I like them tight so I immediately switched to laces and set out on streets and a crushed granite path. After the first mile (1.6 km) in my 'Cloud' shoes my knees and feet felt fantastic. After 5 mi (8.4 km), I was still walking on air.
That's syaing something sens my knees are my "shoe gauge". When the knees hurt its time for new shoes.
These shoes are light on your feet and deliver on the promise. It feels like you're running on the clouds.
I've never had a better first run on a new pair of shoes!
Love my black/black clouds.
Please make them again!
Not a runner, I wish to just add my comment on the wonderful speedy and very friendly service. I received 2 pairs of On Cloud shoes in a competition. Since I live in the French-speaking region, I'd written to On-running on 14 February 2017 a line in French and continued in German as On Cloud is based in Zürich, asking to change the size. Two Happiness Deliverers replied to me early on the 15th in French and in German. Romain sent me the Return mail voucher on the 16th which arrived the next day. I sent the shoes back on Saturday 18 February and voilà, the new shoes arrived on the 22nd. Congratulations and many thanks to Romain and Yvonne for your wonderful and friendly service and efficiency. Bravo and chapeau.
