New Brand Spotlight: On Footwear

In January 2010, David Allemann, Olivier Bernhard, and Caspar Coppetti collaborated to found On™ running footwear. Their mission was simple: to bring awareness to the highly enjoyable side of running instead of focusing solely on the healthy-for-you aspect of the sport. Together the three cofounders worked to craft a running shoe that would boast superior cushioning without sacrificing efficiency. The Swiss footwear company has since come a long way from the brand’s very first prototype, which involved slicing and adhering garden hose to the bottom of a shoe’s outsole.

July 2010 saw the brand’s premier launch, when the Cloudsurfer became the very first On running shoe to hit the shelves of European specialty running stores. Today, whether you are a seasoned runner or a newbie to barefoot-inspired running, you are sure to find your sole mate among the brand’s five core styles: Cloudster, Cloudrunner, Cloudsurfer, Cloudracer, and Cloud. On footwear provides its wearer with all of the benefits of natural-inspired running, without compromising comfort or protection against injury.

Each and every On shoe features CloudTec™ technology; it is a revolutionary cushioning system that activates during the foot’s landing phase, then becomes firm to encourage an effective toe-off. With each foot strike, the highly adaptive rubber “cloud” outsole pods provide both vertical and horizontal cushioning for a soft landing. Once on the ground, the clouds interlock, forming a solid foundation that promotes a natural, powerful takeoff.

Embrace a new running experience that is fast, light, and agile. Embrace the innovation of On running shoes.

New Brand Spotlight: Newton Running

new brand spotlight,running shoes,running,runners,newton running,newton running shoes,natural gait, natural running motion,barefoot running,running gait,forefoot striking,running footwear,shoes for runners,sprinters,

The inspiration behind Newton Running®, as well the brand’s name, was Sir Isaac Newton and his third law of motion, which states that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.

A leader in natural running, Newton believes that maintaining natural running form without being barefoot requires a shoe that allows the foot to connect with the ground as though it is shoeless. Any geometric change interferes with the natural gait, which is why every shoe is built on a level platform that mimics the foot’s natural geometry. Unhindered, flexible movement is essential, as long as the shoe is still protective enough to prevent injury over harsh terrain.

So who are Newton running shoes for? They are for runners who are already mid-foot or forefoot strikers, as well as those who are working on transitioning from heel striking to a more natural running form.

Slip into a Newton running shoe and experience the science of motion.
