On Cloudventure Peak size and fit

The On Cloudventure Peak fits true to size. The shoe is available in the standard running length and it comes in the standard medium width of D for men and B for women, respectively. The upper is flexible, which makes it suitable for runners with wide feet, as well.

Outsole

The On’s innovative technology of the Micro-Engineered Grip Rubber on the outsole has excellent traction properties. It provides a firm grip to the runners on loose or wet surfaces, thereby improving their efficiency and minimizing the effort needed to resist the tricky conditions on trails.

Midsole

The shoe utilizes the brand’s exclusive Cloudtec Elements in its midsole for maximum comfort and enhanced responsiveness. The technology consists of tiny compressed balls very effective in absorbing and distributing impact loads and returning back the energy needed for propulsion.

The full-length Speedboard is very effective in evenly distributing the effect of concentrated loads over the whole surface area, thereby reducing the risk of damage to the shoe or of injury to the user. The plate provides a plush yet responsive feel during the ride and keeps the individual motivated for running longer distances.

Upper

The Ripstop material on the upper ensures a lightweight and breathable environment for the runner, thereby keeping the feet comfortably cool and dry while running.

To add structure to the upper, the On CloudVenture Peak utilizes the nearly weightless ‘Taped Reinforcements’ on its top. These reinforcements maintain a snug fit around the user’s feet and are also very effective in keeping moisture away from the shoe.

The Lightweight Welded Eyestay is an efficient way of tying the shoe. The technology provides a feel of customized fit to the user.

The shoe houses the Rubber Toe Cap in the forefoot region. It provides additional protection against rocks and aberrations while running.

The On Cloudventure Peak boasts the heel cage, which keeps the user’s heel in its proper position while out on the trails. It also provides additional security against impact forces during longer runs.
