Shaped by the Swiss Alps, On was created to change the way that people run all over the world. By focusing on two things: soft landings and explosive take-offs, the brand began to revolutionize the feeling of running. Now 10 years old, On has made a large splash in a game that has — until recently — been completely dominated by the sportswear giants.
On the heels of its collaboration with one of Switzerland’s most-loved exports — not Rolex, we mean Roger Federer — On has asserted its standing as one of the only names to watch in the world of sportswear.
What really sets On apart from the crowd is a willingness to try something new. One look through the On catalog and you’ll see sleek silhouettes, sole units that look like they’ve come out of a sci-fi masterpiece, and uppers from the future. It’s not all for show though, these futuristic updates are all founded in science and mathematics working to shave seconds off your personal best.
On’s Cloud Mesh silhouette is characterized by its unique sole which not only benefits the shoe functionally but also stylistically. We love this all-black colorway as it adds to the utilitarian design of the model.
On has perfected the combination of lightweight and padded materials used on the uppers of each shoe. Providing breathability as well as comfort and protection, the Cloudflow is a runner’s dream.
Perhaps more in line with lifestyle footwear, the Cloud Terry Sneaker boasts a faux leather, jersey, and terry upper. Of course, complete with CloudTec® sole unit, this pair is still at home on the road.
Trail trainers are still having a moment. Inject your wardrobe with technical appeal with this pair of Cloudventure Trail Running Sneakers from On. The murdered-out, taped-seam uppers are easy to style and highly functional.
Step into summer with this pair of yellow runners. This pair of Cloudflow Sneakers is lightweight and sports one of On’s most eye-catching color combos to date.
This khaki and cream colorway might be our favorite yet. Military vibes a-plenty, this pair of Cloudventure runners looks as good with cargo pants as it does with your running shorts.
Has it become apparent that we’re loving On’s color palettes yet? If not, this turquoise and dusty red combination should set the record straight.
Few running trainers display feel as obviously engineered as the On Cloudflow. This all-round runner is the result of years of perfection and you can feel it.
Featuring a connected tongue construction, the On Cloudswift hugs the foot with padding. That makes this model perfect for longer distances.
