Revolutionary cushioning, amazing step-in feel and lightweight waterproof performance combine in this Swiss-engineered running shoe. The Cloud series is renowned for its unique CloudTec® sole: EVA cloud pods compress on footstrike, then rebound to provide an energy boost with each toe-off. A waterproof engineered mesh upper keeps you dry while keeping the weight low, and soft dual-density sockliners offer world-beating comfort. A speed lacing system means no fumbling with wet laces, and On includes a pair of traditional laces if you want to switch things up. Reflective details add some flash and an element of safety on pre-dawn runs.

'Minimal and natural' shoes offer low drop, lots of flex, and minimal cushioning. Most running shoes are 'Light and responsive' with medium cushioning and good energy return. 'Cushioned and floaty' shoes have maximum cushioning.
|Light and responsive|
Some shoes include added motion control or stability features to help minimize pronation or supination, where the foot tends to roll inward or outward in a biomechanically imbalanced running position.
The approximate thickness of the midsole cushioning under the heel and the forefoot. A thicker heel and greater difference between heel and toe height tends to suit heel-strike runners, while forefoot and midfoot strikers may prefer a minimal drop between heel and toe cushioning.
The drop is the difference in height between the heel and the forefoot midsole cushioning. Traditional running shoes tend to have a 10mm drop or higher while minimalist style shoes are on the lower end of the spectrum.
Waterproof shoes and boots feature a waterproof-breathable membrane and a gusseted tongue to help keep your feet dry in wet conditions.
