18 Clouds independently cushion and propel your every step towards runner’s high. Hit the ground perfectly with the added Clouds positioned precisely where you need them, and all with the lightness of our unique Zero-Gravity EVA foam.
The upper of the Cloudflow is in a league of its own. Adaptive, engineered mesh uses the latest weave-technology to blend breathability with support, while antimicrobial treatment guarantees a lasting freshness run after run after run.
The patented Speedboard within the Cloudflow is built with a responsive flex and rocker that promotes flow-motion. It encourages the natural rolling process, promotes explosive take-offs and acts like a shortcut in getting you to runner’s high.
Complimenting the innovative ‘outside’ of the Cloudflow, inside, comfort reigns supreme thanks to a first-layer in-built sock. This is a new level of comfort for performance running shoes – one that feels so good, you will want to wear them both on and off the track.

I literally bought them the week prior to my marathon, and only wore them once before the marathon for a short 3 miler. They were light, comfortable and perfect for a hilly marathon, with plenty of cushion despite the lightness of the shoes. My sister ran the marathon with me and complained about her shoes that day (Brooks) and developed a huge blister, meanwhile I showed her my feet after the marathon, it didn't even look like I ran a race! Great shoes, plan to train for my next marathon in these!
OK, so a lot will be to do with my fitness but I recorded a 10km PB (a minute faster) and a 5km PB (over a minute faster) within a week of getting some ON Cloudflows. They light, comfy and look good. If they get me through a marathon next week without any blisters or problems I think I will have finally found the trainers I've been searching for.
I've ran with Nike LunaEclipse then LunaGlide for over 5 years. I find with each year's new model, their shoes is less and less comfortable, and I slowly have issues with my right foot, so I've been on a mission to find a replacement brand/model.
I decided to give On a try, after trying them at the Vancouver Marathon's expo.To be very honest, it was the aesthetic that caught my attention at first (yes, a bit shallow), but after reading many reviews, seems like it's worth to give it a try. I really like how it's made compare to some bigger brand, and doesn't look as "massive produce". Seems like there were more care in manufacturing the shoes.
I just tested it on my 33km run yesterday, and despite testing it on a long run, my legs and feet felt great. My right foot didn't feel tight at all, compare to the LunaGlide 8. Half way through my run, it started raining pretty hard, and the shoes resisted water quite well. I wouldn't go as far as saying it felt like I was running on clouds, but the foam were very comfortable, more so than other runners I've tried.
Two things I don't like about the shoes: the shoe laces are very good; however, due to the thickness, I find it very hard to tie them tight. I also have relatively small feet, and I really hope they make the shoes one size smaller as I think they will fit better.
Otherwise, I'm happy to have switched to On.
Voted best overall Marathon shoe (9/10)
