-The minimal 6mm drop heal-to-toe was perfect. I tried heel striking for testing purposes (again, not a heel striker) and the cushioning was superb.
- The classic structure of the On Cloud running shoe gets leveled up in the new On Cloud Terry. This running shoe for the road is taken to the next step in terms of comfort and performance with the introduction of new elements and the improvements of existing features.
- A terry cloth tongue is present in the On Cloud Terry; it is also the most noticeable feature in this shoe. It is accompanied by a structure that is comprised of two textures of vegan leather. These details work together to provide a comfortable coverage.
The On Cloud Terry makes use of a measurement scheme that is bigger than the standard running shoe, as the brand itself suggests. The recommended size for the runner is 1 size smaller than their usual preference; however, it is best to fit the shoe in store to ensure an accurate fit. The anatomical shape of the Cloud Terry caters to wearers with small to moderate foot volumes. Available width profiles for men’s and women’s versions are D - Medium and B - Medium, respectively.
The patented CloudTec foam outsole of the On Cloud Terry is engineered to bring cushioning that adjusts to the wearer’s activity, whether it be all-day wear or active training time. Using a “zero-gravity” formula, CloudTec possesses low-abrasion sturdiness; it also works in the concept of support without excess pressure. Because it is a foam unit, it is designed to give an ultra-soft feel and cushioning.
CloudTec comes in the form of pods that are hollowed in the middle, which enable lightness and flexibility. Its aim to equip the runner with more speed. The bottom of the outsole is rimmed with rubber pads, which provide the necessary grip and durability for running on road surfaces.
A high-grade ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA) foam with a minimalist design makes up the midsole of the Cloud Terry. This foam serves as a shock absorber and a durable cushioning unit.
Connected directly to the upper is the Speedboard, which is a thin layer made from Pebax. The Speedboard augments the toughness of the midsole while promoting adequate arch support. It also works in distributing the pressure across the foot for an energized ride.
The shoe’s patterned sockliner gives a unique step-in feel, which contributes to the overall comfort of the running experience.
With two types of vegan leather in the upper, the On Cloud Terry delivers several benefits: the smooth sides bring a seamless and comfortable fit, while the perforated heel aims for robust support. These materials are a new introduction to the signature silhouette of the On Cloud running shoe.
The sides of the shoe are connected by the speed lacing system that is comprised of an elastic cord. It promotes easy and quick slip-on of the shoe while also retaining a secure fit.
The name of the shoe is derived from the terry cloth material utilized in the tongue. The terry cloth material aims to provide a whole new level of comfort with its plush finish, brought about by the part-cotton, part-synthetic composition.
