The new Cloudmonster by On: Weird for a good reason


Fresh from the On lab comes the weirdest creation among running shoes so far. The Swiss sports brand recently presented the Cloudmonster, a model with more CloudTec® and more cushioning than ever before, for a monster-like run.

On shoes have always felt different, but this is another level. Thanks to the biggest Cloud elements ever, moving in the Cloudmonster is like running on clouds – at full volume. Super-smooth landings and maximum push-off create a feeling no runner can resist. The impressive CloudTec® sole with On’s patented technology is combined with a super-sprung Speedboard® – a plate used in all On models – and an unprecedented rocker shape.

Category: Performance
Use: Road runs, long runs, daily running

The unique construction brings high energy return for endless fun during long runs. This is made possible by the use of lightweight, durable and temperature-resistant HelionTM Superfoam, which provides excellent cushioning. But for all the monster fun, the running shoe is very serious when it comes to performance.

Whether light or long runs – extreme CloudTec® provides maximum cushioning and monster push-off.

The Cloudmonster is a maximalist shoe: on landing, the Cloud elements are compressed to absorb the impact, while the Speedboard® is charged with energy to release it back into propulsion. In the process, your legs stay fresh so the next morning can be another day of training.
