Introducing On Running trainers: Why choose On Running shoes?

On Running has changed the landscape of running trainers, from small beginnings in Switzerland in 2010 to becoming a significant player in the world’s running shoe market. The founders of On Running trainers dreamt up a new kind of running shoe, a revolutionary running shoe that would provide two significant features: a cushioned landing and a firm take-off.

With the individual cloud elements on the sole, On Running trainers can provide a cushioned running sensation like no other running shoe. Today the award-winning On Running cloud shoe brand is worn and endorsed by many major athletes and Olympians, which is a testament to their elitism. We’ve put together everything you need to know about On Running trainers to help you find the best running trainer.

On Running Origins

When did On Running start?

On Running began with the retiring professional athlete, three-time world duathlon champion, and multiple Ironman winner Olivier Bernhard, who devoted himself to finding a running shoe that gave the perfect running sensation. He teamed up with a like-minded Swiss engineer who had an idea for a new running shoe. Together with Oliver’s two friends, Caspar Coppetti and David Allemann, they established On Running in Zurich, Switzerland, in 2010.

Where are On Running shoes made?

On Running shoes were engineered and founded in Switzerland but are manufactured in Vietnam.

How to choose the right sized On Running Shoe

Do On Running shoes fit true to size?

In all our On Running trainer product listings, we indicate whether the trainer is a true-to-size fit or runs slightly smaller or larger. To avoid getting the wrong size shoe, read the descriptions carefully to ensure you get the best running shoe size. For example, the Cloudswift trainer runs small, so we recommend getting half a size bigger than you would normally.

How should On Running shoes fit?

On Running shoes should feel comfortable and snug. We recommend trying them on first which is why we provide UK-wide free returns if you’re not happy with the fit.

Which On Running shoe is best for stability?

In terms of stability for your feet while running, On Running offers three levels of stability Direct, Moderate and Max. 

The Cloud X and Cloud X3 offer Direct stability, helping you feel the surface where you run underfoot and will help you take off quickly. Faster runners on short to medium distances usually prefer Direct stability.

The Cloudswift offers Moderate stability and cushioning to help you find your running rhythm on the road and when you get into a flow-like state of measured, even movements. These types of trainers are perfect for race training. 

If you need slightly more cushioning and stability, our Cloudgo trainer offers more Moderate/ Max stability and cushion, providing extra comfort and cushioning on your run. The Max cushioning offers a lighter impact when your foot touches the ground, perfect if you’ve had a break in training and are returning to it.
