For the beginner

If you are just starting your fitness journey or coming back to training after a hiatus, On’s Cloudflow is the ideal performance shoe to start off with. It’s light, comfortable and is fully cushioned. Whether it’s training in the gym, walking, or a light run, Cloudflow will have you running on clouds. The Cloudflow is versatile and a joy to wear whether you’re just starting out or have been on your fitness journey for some time. The Cloudflow is also recommended for distance walking and race walking.

For the 5km runner

For the runner who is ready for short distances, On has a selection of performance shoes that can transform a 5-kilometre run into an explosion of energy and speed. On’s Cloud X 3 and the On Cloudmonster Lumos provide both stability and agility over shorter distances. The Cloud X 3 can be used for mixed-sports, and it’s the perfect training shoe to prepare for your next 5K or 10K. The Cloudmonster Lumos provides comfortable, soft landings made possible with CloudTec®, and a kick-off that feels like an energy boost. Not to mention it’s luminosity so you get to stand out from the crowd at the same time. Both the Cloud X 3 and the Cloudmonster Lumos are reactive and speedy.

For the half marathon runner

Longer distances require a little more support, which is why On recommends the Cloudflyer 4. On Cloudflyer 4 is made for comfort with Helion™ superfoam and is also lightweight and responsive so that you are able to pick up the pace when you need to. The Cloudflyer allows for explosive take-offs. This performance shoe is also built for comfort, making your run that much easier, reducing muscle fatigue.

For the marathon runner

Marathons are serious business, and if you’re running one, it’s vital to have a performance shoe that is light, but comfortable while providing the support you need. On recommends the On Cloudgo. Training for a marathon means you need a shoe with cushioning that holds up over long distances. The Cloudgo’s Helion™-enriched CloudTec® is exactly that. Enhanced vertical and horizontal cushioning protects and supports the feet, so that you can focus on the road ahead. And on the day of the race, On’s Cloudgo is your secret weapon. Agile, fast, light and cushioned, you will be able to take whatever the road brings to you. The Cloudgo what you need for your next-level run.
