Running On Clouds

On was born in the Swiss alps with one goal: to revolutionize the sensation of running.

It’s all based on one radical idea. Soft landings followed by explosive take-offs. Or, as On call it, running on clouds.

The Cloudflyer gives support with 12 Cloud elements that are the biggest of all the On range.

On Running take a different approach when it comes to offering support. Instead of using a traditional medial wedge, On increase the density of the inside Cloud elementswhich allow the foot to build strength which reducing the load on impact with the Clouds giving as much support as you need.

If you want a bit more support from your running shoe, give the Cloudflyer a try.


The Cloudstratus' dual Cloudtec® system is Swiss engineered for maximum cushioning and distance. The lower layer softens every foot strike, collapsing ready to rebound forwards. The upper layer absorbs residual impact and adds even more propulsion. Details like the anatomically engineered upper, the star-lacing system, and ribbed sock liner make the Cloudstratus ideal for runners that demand more: more clouds, more cushioning, more run.


The Cloudsurfer combines the comfort of a training shoe the speed of a racing flat. With the re-bound rubber you'll feel the shoe pushing you forward with every stride.

If your looking for a running shoe that feels fast and feels responsive on tempo and faster runs, the Cloudsurfer should be your go to running shoe.


The Cloudventure is engineered to handle anything the mountains can throw at your trail runners — whether they’re going up or down. In fact, it’s on the downhills where it really comes alive, thanks to Missiongrip™ which provides supreme traction on slippery surfaces, as well as great cushioning to absorbs the shock of flying downhill at top speed.

On Running Shoes

On’s patented CloudTec® technology is engineered to deliver a soft landing followed by an explosive take-off. The result? An unbelievably light running sensation. And no compromise on cushioning and impact protection. In other words, running on clouds.

Welcome to the ultimate lightweight running sensation. Cushioning that doesn't break your stride, but adapts to it. When you hit the ground with an On shoe, the highly adaptive rubber Cloud elements cushion both vertical and horizontal forces for a soft landing and start getting you ready to move forward.

CloudTec® is the first system to offer cushioning only during the landing phase (when you actually need it). As soon as you strike the ground, the Cloud elements lock firm to form a solid foundation for natural, powerful propulsion. Prepare for take-off.  

A sole for every surface

Helion is foam cushioning that can do it all. Advanced manufacturing methods fuse stiffer foam elements with softer sections to deliver properties previously only possible in independent materials. Helion is light on weight but big on energy return, responsive yet protective. It’s also resistant to temperature changes for year-round high performance. Helion is more than just a foam. It’s a superfoam.  

Zero-Gravity Foam offers the ultimate in ultralight. Advanced abrasion pads ensure superior grip and add longevity to lightweight. Experience Zero-Gravity with the Cloud – an On icon for all-day, every day performance.

The evolved first formula for running on clouds.

Rebound Rubber is Swiss-engineered to offer a revolutionary, responsive ride. And with low-abrasion durability we make sure the sensation stays the same mile after explosive mile.

Experience the evolution of the original On experience in the latest iteration of the Cloudsurfer. 

No two trails are the same. Embracing that unpredictability means a sole that can handle anything.

Missiongrip brings trail-level toughness to the unmistakeable sensation of running on clouds. Varied traction patterns help you come to grips with rough and smooth ground to reach the summit in record time.

The unrivaled cushioning of CloudTec then takes the impact out of steep inclines so you can own the downhill. Whatever your off-road mission, the Cloudventure with Missiongrip has you covered.
