On Launches Athlete-Developed Cloudboom Echo

The Swiss running brand releases its elite marathon shoe on June 22, blending athlete‘s feedback with footwear innovation

Timed for Tokyo, On introduces its elite marathon shoe, the Cloudboom Echo, on June 22. As the most athlete-involved shoe developed by the Swiss running brand, the Cloudboom Echo showcases over two years of elite insight and footwear innovation from the On Lab.

Engineered with On’s signature CloudTec®, the Cloudboom Echo blends impact protection with serious responsiveness. A dual layer of optimally placed Clouds provides supreme cushioning that adapts to each athlete’s stride. A completely new rocker-shaped carbon Speedboard®—On’s unique plate for forward propulsion—runs the length of the shoe for explosive take-offs, reinforced by superlight Helion™ foam. 

On Running Cloudboom Echo

After extensive lab and athlete field-testing, an external study found the Cloudboom Echo to perform at the highest level. The carbon shoe was found to induce outstanding running economy which reflects the energy demand of running at a constant submaximal speed comparable to marathon race pace—this means more efficiency to kick through 26.2. 

The Cloudboom Echo provides explosive speed in complete comfort, made for the athlete who pushes the limits of their potential and needs an equally matched shoe that’s up for the challenge.

The Cloudboom Echo will retail at $270 online and at select retail partners worldwide on June 22.
