The award-winning Swiss running brand, On, introduces the Cloudace for its 2018 collection. As On’s most technical shoe to date, the Cloudace utilizes premium technology and engineering to combine a powerful push-off with next-level stability, demonstrating to the world that superior cushioning doesn’t have to mean slow. With an ingenious sole and high-tech upper, this shoe provides dynamic motion and protection in its most refined form.

“The Cloudace is the culmination of all of On’s technical knowledge,” explains Olivier Bernhard, former World Duathlon champion and multiple Ironman Winner and Co-Founder of On. “Every aspect of this shoe has been crafted so that no runner feels like they have to sacrifice support to have a dynamic shoe. For demanding runners who want to take on their longest runs, the Cloudace will be the ace up their sleeve.”

This is the first shoe to combine both of On’s patented outsoles, with the Zero-Gravity Clouds in the heel ensuring a cushioned landing while the Rebound Rubber Clouds in the forefoot produce a powerful push-off. The midfoot is supported by a natural transition zone that encourages a quicker and smoother transition from landing to take-off, as well as evenly distributing pressure. The outsole system is further enhanced by the extra-wide, liquid-injected Speedboard, which both stabilizes the foot throughout each motion and propels it towards an explosive push-off.

The Cloudace is available in Ivy I Sage and Shadow I Rust for men, and Ruby | Lava and Shadow I Rock for women. RRP: £170. Available to buy now. For more information, please visit the website.
