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
I simply LOVE these running shoes. They are the lightest and most comfortable shoes I've ever had.
Great running trainers. Started running in Jan 2016 and predictably began getting various injuries and niggles. Decided to change trainers and I chose these and i have not looked back. They are lightweight and incredibly comfy, no rubbing, chafing even after 26miles. The only chafing was in areas unmentionable :). I have completed two marathons in 2016 and my time is down to 3hrs 16mins. Aiming for sub 3hrs in 2017 and with these bad boys on, nothing can stop me. I use them for 5k and 10ks too but i want the cloudracers for those distances, hopefully santa brings me them :) . They may be slightly pricey but if you are serious about running then you got to get some serious gear, plus I reckon they will save you on physio bills. Some complain about stones getting caught in between the "clouds" but they are not designed for off road running. City running and hard tarmac are where they excel. Buy them you wont regret it!
Absolutely the best sneakers I've had, yet. I'm traditionally a Salomon buyer-- for the look, wear and tear, and performance. The Clouds gave me the look, a better fit, lighter feel, AND the wear and tear. Definitely my go-to sneakers, now. Great job.
