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
This is my second pair of On running trainers and again I am not disappointed with the trainers. They feel so good to run in and I will never wear anything but this brand. If you have never tried a pair i would highly recommend you will not be disappointed.
I've been running Half-marathons (or less) for 18 years and worn every brand. These are by far my favorite shoe! They quickly and securely pick up rocks and small debris though - :-(. A road race that has one gravel patch can sideline me removing 4-5 rocks (size of grapes) for a solid minute. Heartbreaking. Looking at ON trail shoes instead for my next pair.
Awesome, comfortable, lightweight shoe. I decided to try these after looking for a lightweight vegan running shoe, and I'm so glad I did. They fit great and are incredibly comfortable for running, walking, working out, and being on your feet all day. I don't advise wearing outside in dirt or mudded areas, as everything gets stuck and caked in the holes and crevices of the sole, but otherwise a great shoe.
