Featuring Helion midsole super foam, Cloudstratus is a durable max cushioned training shoe. Best suited for neutral runners but also provides a fair amount of stability, Cloudstratus has an 8mm drop and weighs in at 11.3 oz.
Running Niche Experience
We find the Cloudstratus fits true to size and runs slightly wide. It’s also built on a slightly curved last which means its best suited for those with neutral arches. But, Stratus has a very firm heel counter, one of the strongest we’ve seen, which is extended medially and provides an advanced level of stability. This is a unique shoe that works well for both neutral runners and those needing extra support. The midsole is the first double layer of cloud pods which gives the runner an additional level of cushioning. Cloudstratus features Helion super foam in the midsole which performs the same whether in hot or cold weather and provides excellent energy return and durability. Swift has an engineered upper mesh which provides great breathability. It also has a two-part lacing system which allows for a more custom fit particularly across the top of the foot and flexes where your foot flexes. With 16+ large cloud pods we also find the Cloudswift is good for runs well over 10k.
On’s patented CloudTec® technology is engineered to deliver a soft landing followed by an explosive take-off. As soon as you strike the ground, the Cloud elements lock firm to form a solid foundation for natural, powerful propulsion. The result? A very light running sensation with no compromise on cushioning and impact protection.
CloudTec® technology is combined in each ON shoe with “speedboards”. The engineered structure of On Speedboards supports the natural rolling motion of your foot in combination with. From landing to push-off and onto the next stride, each promotes an active running sensation. Every Speedboard is adapted for each model, working in sync with the entire sole to ensure the proper ride.
