Join us Saturday, March 30, at 9 AM and experience the effortless running sensation for which On is known.
We will have several models available to try, but emphasis will be on the brand new Cloudswift — urban running's new hero. Read below to learn why we're so excited about this shoe in particular. There will be a designated test route, snacks, coffee, and prizes. Lots of fun to be had, so be there, or be quadratic!
There’s a new shoe in town and we are VERY excited about it. What’s all the fuss about? Read on, friend!
The latest shoe to hit our shelves is On's brand new shoe, the Cloudswift. The biggest story about this shoe is the new superfoam used in the midsole. It’s called Helion™ which is a proprietary foam developed by On—it’s lightweight, provides incredible impact protection, is durable, and stable in a variety of conditions. The Cloudswift is the first shoe to feature this foam making it a new urban hero. It’s the perfect choice for runners that want to reduce impact when running on the road.
But that’s not all that is great about this shoe. The Cloudswift is also the widest shoe On has ever made with an engineered-mesh sock that gently and securely hugs your foot and breathes to keep your feet cool. The mechanical side band provides gentle mid foot support. These features combined with the impact protection and cushioning provided by the Helion™ superfoam make this shoe an excellent option for anyone suffering from bunions or metatarsalgia, and I can’t wait for someone with Morton’s neuroma to try on a pair. I think the width could be a game changer!
Personally, I have a wide forefoot with a high arch and in-step, and, at first blush, I was a little worried about the bootie construction of this shoe. Would I be able to get it on easily? The answer is yes! Like any slide on shoe, there is a little bit of finagling, but it wasn't difficult. In the end this shoe is the answer to my prayers! The width is comfortable so my toes don’t go numb, and I like the feel of the light support. It’s there, but it’s not a crutch. That being said, the glove-like fit for which On is known is still there. If your feet aren't "wide" you can still wear this shoe. If you’re training from anything from a 5K to a marathon, this is a great training shoe that will perform mile after mile.

And if you’re a Cloudflow fan, you may love the Cloudswift too, but it does have a slightly firmer toe-off. Overall, it’s quite a similar ride. Just with more durable cushioning.
