Updates to On Cloudrunner

  • The On Cloudrunner features the CloudTec outsole technology with the Honeycomb slip pattern that delivers reliable grip even on wet conditions. The outsole is also durable to withstand the damaging elements on the trail.
  • The midsole of the shoe features the combination of CloudTec elements and high-grade EVA foam that delivers a blend of durability, shock absorption and high energy return for a more powerful toe-off.

Size and fit

The On Cloudrunner is true to its size. It provides a snug and comfortable fit from the heel to the forefoot area. The forefoot is a bit wider to comfortably accommodate those runners with wider foot. This shoe is available in medium D and B widths for men’s and women’s version respectively.


The On Cloudrunner is designed to take on the road, track and gravel, so expect a flat undersurface with semi-aggressive treading to keep the grip of the shoe excellent on both dry and wet surfaces. The shoe’s outsole features include the CloudTec rubber and the Honeycomb slip pattern. This outsole configuration is also very similar to the On Cloudrunner 2.


Despite being developed for the neutral runner and supinator, the On Cloudrunner has a moderate midsole structure. It consists of the high-grade EVA midsole, Integrated Transition Bridge (ITB), Speedboard and the CloudTec Elements. These guarantee midsole durability, impact absorption, energy-return in toe-off phases and better foot striking.


The upper construction of the On Cloudrunner includes the Perforated Tongue, Non-slip lining, Intelligent stitching, 3D air mesh and heel strap. Breathability, fit and comfort are prioritized in such a construction.
