The Cloudflyer

Daikichi, 27, Executive Officer

I’m a triathlete and I participate in IRONMAN every year. So my goal is to run 200km every month. I was seriously injured last year and I am still currently undergoing rehabilitation, so I worry about the strength and stability of my leg. The Cloudflyer gives me support and cushioning whenever I touch the ground. It is an indispensable shoe for me now because it reduces the pain of the injured leg and eliminates my anxiety.

The Cloudflyer is one of our most versatile shoes. Tough and durable but light and agile too. It can handle long and short runs, slow and fast runs, training and racing runs. It's part of our support range, so if you're looking for something to give you a little boost when first starting out or returning from injury, then this might be the shoe for you.

Athlete’s Verdict:

Right now, my favorite On is the Cloudflyer. It has plenty of cushion and support for my longer runs without weighing me down.

The Cloudstratus

Mbuso, 38, Account Manager

I am a social runner and I average about 50km a week. I like to do three 10km runs during the week and then a longer road run on the weekend. I do this to stay fit and healthy whilst maintaining a good body weight. I love my Cloudstratus as it gives me enough support for those quick short runs and more cushioning for those weekend long runs too.

The Cloudstratus features two layers of Helion™-powered CloudTec® for maximum cushioning. It’s comfortable but responsive, making it ideal for the more ambitious among us who really want to push the distance. But if you're just getting started or even if you’re a heavy impact runner, the impact protection and gentle support will keep you feeling fit and healthy.

Athlete’s Verdict:

I love the Cloudstratus, it’s a super-light shoe with amazing support. I can take it anywhere – roads, trails or track – and it always gives me what I want; a quality run.

The Cloud X

Lucie, 31, Personal Trainer

As a full time fitness professional, I’ve worked my way through an exhaustive list of running shoes, and truly, the Cloud X is a cut above all the rest. I find them endlessly comfortable, unbelievably light and they have retained their padding and shape despite the miles I clocked up during lockdown. Having hit my 5K PR in them, I can’t imagine switching back to any other shoe.”

The Cloud X is a lightweight powerhouse. It’s ideal for short and speedy runs, and for taking on high intensity mixed-movement workouts. It’s made for those who workout and run. Versatile and agile, it works at home on the track, street and in the gym and in the office. So whatever you’ve got planned, it’s more than capable of keeping up.

Athlete’s Verdict:

The Cloud X is so light and flexible, it’s my go-to for walking to the store or getting out for quick evening run.
