On’s Ultralight Waterproof Speed Hiking Boots Are Ready To Ascend

Jul 24, 2019

Category: Gear

A decade ago, Swiss performance brand On unveiled their very first shoe. Now, ten years later, they’re diving headlong into a new footwear category with a pair of speed hiking boots they’ve dubbed the Cloudrock Waterproof.

Staying true to the brand’s fast-paced roots, the Cloudrock isn’t your typical hiking shoe. Rather, it’s an ultralight trail runner masquerading as a mid-length boot — weighing in at an impressive 15.7 ounces in total. That ultralight weight is coupled by a ruggedized Missiongrip rubber lug outsole, a FlexLock lacing system that can be tightened with just one hand, a protective 360° mudguard, Zero-Gravity CloudTec cushioning for super-soft footfalls, and so much more. Best of all, these boots are waterproof — meaning they’re ready for any adventure in any weather. You can get a pair for yourself today in your choice of three different colorways for $300.

Purchase: $300
