The Cloud spotted on podiums worldwide.

Since its launch last year, the Cloud, the lightest fully cushioned running shoe, has been introducing an effortless running experience to runners all over the world. Even world-class athletes reach for new heights and personal bests with the lightweight.

With its sole made of innovative Zero-Gravity foam and On’s patented Swiss CloudTec® technology, the Cloud offers superior cushioning and impact protection, combined with an explosive take-off. And it only weights 200g. Not surprising that world-class athletes pick the lightweight for training sessions and race day alike.

Nicola Spirig – from European Athletic Championships to the Ironman
Right from the start, Swiss Olympic Gold medalist Nicola Spirig made the Cloud her shoe of choice:  “I have 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.

The Cloud – the shoe of choice for long distances
World-class triathlete and Ironman Champion Tim Don, who is always wearing the Cloud on race day, is also appreciating its advantages on long distance runs. In his opinion, the Cloud is everything a performance running shoe needs to be: “Light. Fast. Responsive. I love wearing it. It gives me a confidence of speed.” And he has the right feeling: With impressive running performances, Tim keeps stepping on podiums around the world – most recently at the Ironman 70.3 Brazil where he crossed the finish line after 3:41:47 as well as the Ironman 70.3 Monterrey, finished in 03:42:49. In Monterrey, another On-athlete wearing the Cloud joined him on the podium: The up-and-coming talent Mauricio Mendez celebrated an excellent third place.

Lightness for hard training sessions
Ironman-Champion Kyle Buckingham und European Champion Miquel Blanchart are also counting on the Cloud to increase their performance: Kyle, who also competes in the Cloudracer, appreciates the superior cushioning of the Cloud: “I love running and racing in the Cloud, because it makes me fast. And: It offers the highest comfort during hard runs.” Miquel, who is going to race the Ironman Lanzarote in May wearing the Cloud, sums it up: „Fast shoe. Super responsive and comfortable. Just makes me feel I am in love with it." There is nothing left to say.
