Reliable protection and durability

The CloudTec technology provides runners with a light running sensation and soft landings. The Cloud elements on the outsole unit compress vertically and horizontally as they cushion the impact of the foot hitting the ground.

This innovative material also offers reliable protection and durability without compromising comfort and responsiveness. Other popular On running shoes that utilize the CloudTec rubber are the On Cloud and On Cloudflow.

Cloud Hi provides long-lasting comfort

The combination of the Speedboard and CloudTec technologies results in long-lasting comfort for urban adventures.

The Speedboard above the CloudTec rubber smoothens out the runners' transitions. This tech flexes as the user moves, converting the energy generated from impact into forwarding motion. 

Lightweight and responsive

The Helion Superfoam that's integrated into the shoe improves energy return and controls temperature changes. It is a lightweight and responsive foam that also delivers added durability to the shoe.

Meet the demands of urban explorations

The upper of the On Cloud Hi has a two-piece design that utilizes vegan leather and suede. The vegan leather shields the forefoot while the suede covers the ankle.

These materials deliver excellent comfort and protection during urban explorations. 

On Cloud Hi stabilizes the foot in place

The shoe's TPU heel stabilizer keeps the foot in place and prevents it from sliding up and down while running. The padded tongue and collar of the shoe prevent skin irritation.

These elements also keep the debris and small rocks from entering the shoe. Instant step-in comfort is provided by the no-tie speed-lacing system, which is easier to use compared to the traditional lacing system.
