Known for pushing the envelope more than your average performance brand, On is doing so once again. With the reveal of its new Cloudmonster training shoes, the Swiss shoemaker has delivered one of its most innovative pairs to date.
By fusing its proprietary CloudTec elements with its trademark Speedboard sole, On has managed to craft a shoe capable of providing unrivaled energy return and maximum rebound, deeming them a perfect pair of shoes for any training routine you have in mind. They are also rounded out with a plush sock liner for added support. Not only are they comfortable, but the Cloudmonsters are remarkably durable and sustainably made, as they are temperature-resistant and crafted from over 30% recycled content overall.
In addition to their notable makeup, these trainers boast as unique a design as any we’ve seen, practically taking the chunky shoe trend to new heights by making them so large for a legitimate reason. In this instance, the enlarged CloudTec is more than just a cosmetic addition, as the brand claims that these are great for “energizing any run from an easy 5K to a big-effort 20,” going to show that these are geared toward monstrous performance — no pun intended.
While it may not be Halloween, hitting the gym in these aptly-named shoes sounds like a treat. You can pick up your pair of On’s new Cloudmonsters on the brand’s site for $170.
