Heavy metal for the lightest running shoe.
On wins the prestigious Gold Award at ISPO, the international sporting goods trade fair for its lightweight performance running shoe the Cloud. On’s patented technology has now been recognized a second time after winning the ISPO gold award in 2013 for its competition shoe the Cloudracer.
On introduced the Cloud, the lightest, fully-cushioned running shoe to the world last year. It celebrates the notion of Zero-Gravity Running by being incredibly cushioned, yet weighing less than 200g. The Cloud embodies On’s patented Swiss CloudTec® system which combines that of a soft landing and explosive takeoff. Not only has On’s technology convinced the ISPO jury, but also Olympic athletes such as Nicola Spirig. She won several international competitions in the Cloud and will be training in the 2015 best performance running shoe while getting ready for the 2016 Olympics in Rio. After receiving countless applications, the international ISPO jury picked the Cloud as the 2015 best performance running shoe, which was developed in Switzerland by a team led by Ex-Duathlon World-Champion and six-time Ironman winner Olivier Bernhard.
What is special about the Cloud? Olivier Bernhard: “The Cloud with Zero-Gravity foam and On’s patented Swiss CloudTec® technology is the lightest running shoe in the world, still it offers outstanding cushioning and impact protection.“ Who runs in the Cloud? Olivier Bernhard: „Hobby runners as well as world-class athletes who are training or competing swear by the Cloud. This includes Olympic triathlon winner Nicola Spirig. In December 2014 she wore the Cloud at her Ironman debut and win in Mexico." Why has the ISPO jury selected the Cloud as the 2015 best performance running shoe: Urs Weber, from Runner’s World and in the ISPO-Jury:"The Cloud from the young Swiss 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.“
