How long will a pair of On shoes last?
It depends on many different factors, such as running style, weight and the surface you run on, but generally shoes (not just On) last between 600 and 1,200 kilometers. After this distance, wear and tear should be easy to see, enabling you to replace your shoe before you are injured.
What shoe is right for me?
You’re after our shoe finder, which is here: www.on-running.com/shoe-finder
I have overpronation/oversupination – should I choose On?
Our CloudTec® cushioning system adapts to each runner’s individual style, activating muscles and stabilizing ankles to make overpronation/oversupination part of your natural running movement. So yes.
I have always worn supporting running shoes in view of my overpronation. If Ons don’t have such support, are they really right for me?
A certain amount of pronation is part of any normal running motion. It helps to cushion the forces felt when the heel touches down, easing the pressure on the rest of the locomotor system. With insufficiently strong muscles or weak connective tissues, however, a runner may develop overpronation over the years. But this can be corrected by building up the muscles concerned. And with their adaptive cushioning technology, Ons can actually help the wearer to build up these muscles in an effective and sustainable way.
Are On suitable for any kind of gait: normal, bow-legged, knock-kneed?
With our CloudTec® technology, your On shoes adapt to your particular running style, regardless of whether you are slightly bow-legged or knock-kneed. If the condition is more extreme, however, you may be well advised to take additional strength training to work on your gait.
Are On suitable for heavier-set runners?
The heavier the runner, the lower the benefit from the cushioning effects that running shoes provide. With their advanced CloudTec® technology, however, On shoes still offer running comfort and soft landings for larger wearers, too.
What kind of terrain are On products suitable for?
On comes from Switzerland, so all of our products have been tested throughout different seasons and landscapes. For shoes, your best bet is use our shoe finder to find the perfect pair for your needs, and as for our Performance Running Gear, each product’s page indicates if it is weather resistant, water repellant and so on.
I wear orthopedic insoles - should I stop doing so with On shoes?
With their CloudTec® technology, On shoes adjust to distribute the pressure when you make impact with the ground, so insoles are not needed. Too much support can have an adverse effect on your running action, so you should decide for yourself whether you prefer to use the insoles or not.
Can On shoes be worn with flat feet, fallen arches, hollow feet or splay feet?
Traditionally, people are classified into static ‘foot types’. As a result, many runners end up being advised to wear very stable shoes. At On, by contrast, we look at your entire running motion with a vision to enable you to activate or deactivate the right muscles at the right moment in the cycle. That’s what our unique CloudTec® system enables you to do, regardless of foot type.
Can Ons be worn not just for running but for walking or hiking as well?
We developed the On with its special CloudTec® system specifically for running purposes. But, as experience as shown, Ons are just as good to wear for similar sporting activities, such as walking, hiking or trail running, too.
