The principle of taping an athlete’s foot at trouble spots has been translated into the skeleton design of an all-new upper. Multiple tapes hold the foot with minimal weight.
The Cloudracer is ideal for fast training runs and competitions. This performance running shoe, with its ultra-light skeleton upper, is ultra-fast and has been tailored to an athlete's foot. No wonder the Cloudracer has already taken its place on more than 70 winning podiums.

The Cloudracer stays low to the ground for fast performance yet keeps you fresh with a surprisingly comfortable and protected ride. The principle of taping an athlete’s foot at trouble spots has been translated into the skeleton-design of an all-new upper shoe to hold your foot with minimal weight. Also the new Cloudracer Speedboard unleashes the natural energy of your feet to promote maximum performance.
The Swiss Cloudracer is the winning running shoe of the Ironman World Championships in Kona, Hawaii. In 2013 the Belgian top athlete, Frederik Van Lierde, won the Ironman World Championship with the eighth fastest time in the 35-year history of the event. He did so in the Cloudracer. “I really wanted to get into these running shoes from the first time that I tried them on. I was always a good runner, but with On I can go faster and further without risking injuries – which I have been struggling with last year”, says Frederik Van Lierde. “For this win, everything had to come together, and On was an important part of it.”
From ISPO awarded as the best performance running shoe 2013, the Cloudracer keeps its promises. May it be in marathons, sprints or triathlons - On athletes reach new personal bests with the Cloudracer. With more than 70 winning podiums the On Cloudracer belongs to the most succesful competition running shoes. The Cloudracer deliveres a world-class performance in various running disciplines.
Ich laufe pro Woche ca. 30-40 km. Diese Laufschuh ist aber definitiv für den Wettkampf konzipiert. Das Gewicht des Schuhs ist minimal. Ich habe mir den Laufschuh extra eine Nummer größer rausgesucht (47 statt 46), da die Füsse während eines langen Laufes sich aus dehnen und die Gefahr von Blasen somit reduziert werden. Der Aussenschuh ist sogar so dünn, dass er durchsichtig ist! Somit kann man die Socken die man im Schuh anzieht sehen. Ich kann den Schuh nur wärmsten empfehlen.
I switched to these race shoes from a pair of Scott Race Rockets. After having a pair of Cloudsurfers, I wanted something lighter for racing in. As these were my first pair, I've also been doing most of my training in them, and while they are excellent for speed work, the soles are wearing out pretty fast. I'm doing around 45km a week in them training for a half marathon, as I wanted to make sure I was comfortable with them for the race. I've just done 230km total distance, and the outside edge "clouds" are pretty worn. The rest of the shoe is still in really good condition. Race is next Sunday, and hoping for a PB in them! Will replace with another pair once they are fully worn out.
I just completed a 100km trail race in Australia using these shoes. In the last 7 months I've logged over 2,500km's in training + the race and only now have they died.
I worked towards a more minimalistic, neutral shoe over the last couple of years and struggled to consistently find a solution from the other main stream brands. I love that Ons don't follow the same model off other manufacturers where they design obsolescence into their business model i.e. their models don't change every 6 months which is frustrating when you find a shoe that works for you only to find that its no longer available when you need to replace them.
NOw. These are not a trail running shoe as I discovered a week ago. My feet have forgiven me and, ultimately, they got me through what was a technical and rugged trail. I've just ordered a replacement pair + a pair of the Ons trail shoe :-)
Lightweight, comfy, durable and well priced. Thank you!
