The Women's ON Cloudmonster is perfectly balanced with cushion and responsiveness. This is an everyday trainer that can handle those high mileage long run days while remaining highly responsive for 4 hours.
As far a ON’s road shoes go this is probably their best road running shoe. For those looking for the optimal balance of cushion and energy return the Women’s ON Cloudmonster is one of the best. It offers excellent responsiveness for those going at long run and everyday speeds. We would not consider this shoe an uptempo or workout day shoe for most runners. In our opinion this shoe is a reflection of what ON has been working towards during the last 5 years with their Helion™ Superfoam, CloudTec® Pods and Speedboard®. It is an excellent everyday/long run training shoe that offers a nice snap in the toe off. For those in Saldia, Co this is the go to shoe for running on asphalt and concrete and for those working on their feet all day.
This is made from chains of molecules running horizontally and vertically within the midsole. These chains enable soft impacts on the foot strike while the horizontal chains create a stable ride with a snappy toe off. The Women’s ON Cloudmonster offers ON’s best combination of cushioning and propulsion on the toe off.
These are the largest pods that ON has offered on a road running shoe. The pods allow runners to absorb impact directly where their footstrike occurs thus providing a high level of energy return directly from those impact points. Unlike other running footwear where the kinetic energy from the footstrike is distributed throughout the entire midsole the CloudTec® technology allows the energy return to be consolidated within each individual pod.
Situated between the CloudTec® Pods and Helion™ Superfoam every Speedboard® in the ON running shoe quiver is designed specifically for each style of shoe. The Women’s ON Cloudmonster's Speedboard® provides runners during with improved running economy on long and easy runs. We recommend Cloudmonster for any long duration and everyday effort.
Made from a total 35% recycled materials this upper provides a snug fit with a breathable/seamless sockliner. The laces are held in place with a loop system that allows most runners with semi-curved to curved shaped foot to be securly held in place without hot spots. The tongue is offset and sits on the top of the foot comfortably without feeling sloppy. The heel is secure as well but we dont’ recommend it if someone has a wide heel.
While the stack of height of the Women’s ON Cloudmonster is high we wouldn’t consider this shoe to be as cushioned as the Hoka Clifton. Unlike other high stack height shoes the cushion has a firmer feel but with the benefit of a more snappy toe off. We feel this shoe has a similar feel to the Nike Invincible line. If you want a nice balance of cushion and energy return this is the shoe for you.
