The specialists at ISPO have conducted their tests and reached their decisions. This year’s ISPO Gold Award has gone to a shoe that doesn’t yet exist: the new Cloudace from On. And the Cloud X, On’s first-ever multi-sport shoe, has been named a “Winner” in the “Health & Fitness – Indoor Training” category.

The Cloudace is a very special shoe in so many respects. It’s not just sophisticated and highly technical in its construction: it also sets new running shoe standards in comfort and stability terms. Living fully up to its name, it’s an ace performer for any discerning runner, as is confirmed by the bestowal of the prestigious ISPO Gold Award. All runners will be able to discover this new running sensation for themselves from this June onwards.

On is striking out on bold new paths with its recently-launched Cloud X multi-sport shoe, too. The lightest fully-cushioned running shoe has been developed for all athletes who like to actively mix up their workouts.

Top athletes like marathon runner Chris Thompson have achieved personal bests in the Cloud X, which they praise for its versatility and fit. And the fact that this shoe, which is at heart a total On performance running shoe, should earn top honors in the “Indoor Training” category is dual cause for celebration: it confirms how widely the Cloud X can be used, and it underlines On’s total commitment to developing exceptional top-quality products.

The international ISPO judging panel chose the Cloudace and the Cloud X for their awards from a wide range of candidates. All On products are developed in Switzerland by a team around former world duathlon champion and six-times Ironman winner Olivier Bernhard.
