You’d be forgiven for thinking the latest shoe from Swiss running brand On is a throwback to the thick soles of the 1990s – especially considering that this era is certainly making a fashion comeback in a serious way of late. The On Cloudmonster’s thick sole isn’t just a fashion statement, though. Sporting the biggest midsole ever seen in an On shoe, the Cloudmonster is a maximalist shoe that does its name justice, both in appearance and performance.
With On’s characteristic Helion™ superfoam and more CloudTec® elements than On has ever featured in a running shoe, the Cloudmonster is a super-stacked beast that offers a softer ride than ever before – even more so on longer runs.
Featuring a thin, breathable mesh upper, the Cloudmonster’s rocker design means there’s a smooth transition from the footstrike, and with this shoe also featuring On’s signature Speedboard®, it makes for landings and take-offs that are even more explosive than what you’ve come to expect from this leading running shoe manufacturer.
Despite its large proportions, the Cloudmonster is light and easy to run in, with the men’s shoe weighing in at only 275 grams, and the women’s Cloudmonster at just 230 grams. 80% of the shoe’s upper is made from recycled materials – this is in line with On’s green manufacturing strategy.
On’s latest release helps to absorb the impact of the road and propel you forward, thanks to a new combination of On’s tried-and-trusted design elements. The Cloudmonster’s higher stack height is perfect for runners looking for extra cushioning on training runs, and provides ample cushioning against hard surfaces like asphalt. The On Cloudmonster’s exaggerated design is sure to catch the eye, but doesn’t skimp on performance or explosive energy return.
The On Cloudmonster launches on 31 March – keep an eye on the Tifosi Sports website to place your order and unleash your inner running beast.
