Running specialty brand On may be a newcomer in the footwear game, but the Swiss-based brand has already found a niche in the running market with its initial lineup of high performance trainers including the Cloudsurfer.
Equipped with On’s patented CloudTec system, the Cloudsurfer is a lightweight running shoe that is designed to turn running energy into forward momentum. The shoe uses hollow rubber pods placed strategically on the outsole to provide a sort of a bounce effect. Think of it as a more minimal approach to the Nike Shox.
The shoe features a sleek upper with a light microfiber 3D air mesh construction that takes in right amount to air to help maintain body temperature. Its collar is lined with smart foam, which adapts to the foot for high comfort and moisture control. The tongue on the Cloudsurfer is perforated for additional breathability, and is also padded for comfort. Speaking of comfort, the shoe is loaded with a high-grade EVA midsole that is both durable and responsive, making the Cloudsurfer perfect for training or competition.
