On running shoes - the cradle at the foot of the Swiss Alps
On running shoes are based on a simple principle: On co-founder Olivier Bernhard, duathlon world champion and Ironman winner, had the idea of the perfect running shoe. With the help of his friends David Allemann and Caspar Coppetti, he set about developing it. The drive: to combine a cushioned landing and powerful push-off in one runner.
In 2010, On was born in Zurich, and within a short time, the innovative trio inspired with their running shoe models for every type of runner. In the meantime, On running shoes are not only regarded worldwide as a high-quality alternative to the big brands in the industry, the Swiss manufacturer has even revolutionised the running shoe, as the Wall Street Journal noted back in 2012.
The advantages of On running shoes
On running shoes like the Cloud or the Cloud X were quickly ahead of their time: Just one year after its founding, the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich conducted a study: It attested athletes equipped with On running shoes a significantly lower pulse and a lower blood lactate level. On running shoes are characterised by particularly pronounced cushioning designed with the latest materials, which catapults you forward again with the next step. This means you experience the greatest possible energy recovery while running.
The recipe for success for the perfect running feeling lies in the cushioning foam, which is both light and durable and is also temperature-resistant. This is exactly what makes for a comfortable feeling. Is the street your preferred running territory? Then you certainly know about the pitfalls that asphalt has in store. On running shoes for men and women fight the hard ground because they contain an additional foam layer underneath the foot. Specially shaped side elements also provide the obligatory support.
The upper material is made of high-tech mesh, which ensures pleasant ventilation so that you can fully concentrate on your run. If you prefer to push yourself to the limit on uneven trails, then you'll be right at home with On running shoes. Designed specifically for trail running, the Missiongrip outsole in the Cloudultra features a variety of grip patterns to help ensure you never lose your footing. Slipping on slippery surfaces is a thing of the past.
What makes On running shoes stand out?
On is completely dedicated to running, so the Swiss passion for running is reflected in each of their men's and women's running shoes. The On team tirelessly researches new refinements to give you the most comfortable feeling possible. "Running like on clouds" is the motto of the premium manufacturer, and one of the numerous patented On technologies is called CloudTec. Small, hollow chambers form a connection and grow together to form an adaptive outsole.
This not only provides a pleasant running experience, but also reduces muscle fatigue and lowers your heart rate. Since everyone has a different running style, the Cloud elements used in On running shoes respond to each type of runner individually and provide personalised performance. Thanks to the soft landings, you are able to apply the necessary freshness even during long, demanding runs. In addition to CloudTec technology, the cracks at On have implemented another important innovation in their running shoes.
The Speedboard, a liquid-injected plate made of polymer, works between the midsole and the upper shoe and serves to capture the energy generated during landing and transfer it to the forefoot. This releases as much energy as possible during push-off. All these technologies form an outstanding symbiosis when wearing On running shoes and turn your run into a real adventure on clouds.
On running shoes - keep your feet dry, even in bad weather.
Wind and rain won't keep you away from your runs? Then you should go for the wind- and waterproof On running shoes. The On Cloudflyer Waterproof, for example, combines On's own lightweight cushioning with a special wind- and waterproof membrane. The customised speedboard and a 3D heel section also ensure support and comfort. In addition, reflective details in the heel area and on the laces make you visible even in the dark.
You are perfectly positioned for off-road use with the Cloudventure Waterproof. This special off-road shoe also uses the proven On membrane, which protects you from moisture and wind. The Missiongrip sole technology creates stability even on rough terrain and keeps you from slipping on slippery ground, while the Speedboard generates a faster run without extra effort. No matter which On shoe you're looking for - you'll find the right, durable companion in the On running shoe shop at Keller Sports.
