Meet On ambassador, Asa NtukuThe Social Media Company
If there’s any one group of people putting On shoes to the ultimate test, it’s the On ambassadors. These athletes have sport and running at the top of their minds more often than most, and also typically spend more time on the road or trails than most of us mere mortals.
Some of On’s ambassadors have kindly agreed to give us their take on their sport of choice, as well as giving their feedback about running in On shoes. If you’ve been in two minds about giving On a go, read on.
We spoke to On ambassador, Asa Ntuku – here’s what he had to say.
1. Hi Asa! Please tell us more about yourself?
Hi, my name is Asa Ntuku. I am an enthusiastic ultra trail runner and a triathlete. I have the courage to say “no”, the courage to face the truth, and these are the magic words to living my life with integrity.
2. When and how did you first learn about On running shoes?
I learnt about the shoe at the Ironman 70.3 race in East London in 2017, and also from Tim Don (“the Man with Halo”).
3. What was it that attracted you to these shoes when you first discovered them?
I am a lover of the finer things, and when I read about the On running shoes and their engineering, I loaded my shopping cart and checked out… I must say I was very devastated when I had to pay so much on customs to get the merchandise here.
4. Which On shoes do you own at the moment?
Two pairs of Cloudflows, a pair of Cloudswifts, one pair of Cloudsurfers and a pair of CloudAces.
5. Now that you’ve been wearing On for a while, what is it you like most about the shoes?
I like their uniqueness and the way they are responsive to my style of running… I’m yet to get the trail shoe (the Cloudventure) and it would be awesome to use the shoe for the Karkloof 100 Miler in September 2020.
6. Do you ever wear your On shoes when you are not working out?
Yes, it is my daily shoe when I am not running.
