Some training sessions could be especially tough and can leave you feeling nearly glued to the ground. On days like those, the right support is important. So Swiss sports brand On has developed a new running shoe that provides such support in light, cushioned, and comfortable form.

“To make the Cloudrunner extra supportive we now have increased the width of the bottom unit in the forefoot and the heel area, so that you land and push off on a wider platform,” explains On’s Head of Footwear Product Management Edouard Coyon. “We sculpted the inside of the bottom unit, so your foot sits inside a cradle, instead of sitting on top of it. The upper nicely wraps around your foot so it’s fully supported. We tuned the geometry of the clouds – smaller clouds on the medial side than on lateral – to support the foot’s movement from heel to toe.”
The ergonomic running sensation is further enhanced by the Speedboard®, which is located directly beneath the foot and, in the Cloudrunner, gives extra stability through its slightly wider shape. When the foot lands, the Speedboard® absorbs and shops the resulting impression energy after which releases this into the take-off. It’s the mix of its CloudTec® cushioning and its Speedboard® agility that makes the Cloudrunner such an effortless experience that feels lighter and easier with each running stride.
The unique blend and balance of cushioning and support deliver outstanding comfort, too. Asphalt won’t ever have felt so soft. And, provided that the Cloudrunner has been specifically developed with running novices and returnees in mind, this excessive wearer consolation can prove the decisive think about keeping going and not giving up.
The all-new Cloudrunner additionally features all the usual On eco-credentials: more than 90% of its polyester is recycled, and over 30% of the entire shoe is made from recycled materials.
The Cloudrunner is available from April 21, 2022, online at on-running.com and from selected retail partners worldwide, at a price of 169.99$.
