My Favorite Running Shoe

On Cloudsurfer Sky / Mandarin

If you have not yet heard of On Running Shoes, it is time that you did!  I am a big-time running shoeaholic -- presently, I have at least 20 pairs.  I love trying new shoes, but over the past two years, I consistently return to my On Cloudsurfers, as pictured above - they are simply the best! 

On Running Shoes are manufactured in Switzerland -- the company is only a few years 
old and in that short time, they have made great strides!  (Pardon the pun).

Whether you are a pro-athlete or just starting to run, there is an On Running Shoe for all 
types of runners. Each model comes in different color combinations both for men and 
women runners.
Cloudster: Made to start and have fun.
On Cloudster Black / White

Cloudrunner: Made to build endurance and to train on and off the road.On Cloudrunner Red / Limelight

Cloudsurfer: Made to increase performance, to train and compete.On Cloudsurfer Sky / Mandarin

Cloudracer:  Made to train fast and compete.

On Cloudracer Silver / Orange

Cloud: Latest and lightest addition to the On collection. 
With less than 200g, Cloud is made to run with ultimate lightness and comfort.
On Cloud Olive / Flame

How does On’s patented CloudTec® system work?
Cushioned landing, firm push-off: that’s the core concept behind the new
running . It’s a radical development: On’s patented technology combines
all the benefits of a soft training shoe and a hard and fast racing shoe.
Land on the sand, push off from the running track!
The secret to this bold new dual functionality lies in the On’s “clouds” – 
hollow pods on the sole of the shoe that stretch back on impact to
cushion the landing and then lock to form the solid foundation required 
for a powerful push-off.

The result is a new running experience: fast, light and agile. 
The On gives its wearers all the benefits of a natural running 
style, while still providing optimum comfort and maximum 
protection from injury.

Athletes who have worn Ons and their coaches have reported greater 
muscle activation, new personal bests, fewer injuries and shorter 
recovery times.

Are you ready to purchase a pair?  If so, please take note of two 
important things:

1.  You will need to size up a half size from your dress shoes.  
I wear an 8.5 (U.S. sizing) in women's shoes, but take a size 9 in my Ons.

2.  Click on the link directly above this blog post to order a pair of Ons.  

Happy shopping!  Let me know what you think after your first run in 
your new running shoes.
