If you have seen shoes on around that look pretty cool with a logo that looks like it is the letters “Q and C” you may have been wondering where to find them. (They can also look like an “O” and “C” to some. This is a logo of a company called “On”. It is often referred to as “On Cloud” as well. We have noticed a lot of people seeing these shoes and asking questions, so we wanted to help clarify it all for you!
Here’s a bit more information for you.
On is a company started in the Swiss alps by three friends who wanted to make a shoe that reduced impact with the ground, but also helped propel and rebound the foot after impact. They compared this to running on clouds, hence the name.
Started in 2010, these shoes have propelled this company forward with over 50 million pairs sold already, and On has continued to expand beyond shoes.

A Review Of On Cloud Running Shoes
We did a bit of research on running website, blogs, and took a look at hundreds of reviews across online retailers like Amazon, Footlocker, and On-Running.com to give you a brief summary.
Overall, the reviews are fantastic. The shoes are well designed, easy to lace, beautiful, durable, breathable, water resistant, cushioning, and comfortable for walking and running.
With any shoe, it is worth noting what works for others, may not be best for you. Moving from a minimal shoe to a heavily cushioned shoe like this is a major change, and can cause some discomfort. Therefore, our best recommendation is to give them a shot and certainly ease into them unless you are used to running in shoes with large amounts of cushioning.
