On Cloud vs Cloud X 2019: Which On Running Shoes Are The Best?

- Advertisement - Continue reading below -

The On Cloud has remained a very popular shoe since its release in 2014. I have been wearing them since the first release 4 years ago so I have plenty of experience using the On Cloud for my active lifestyle and running.

Recently On re-engineered the Cloud and made some serious improvements based on all the feedback from runners of the first Cloud combined with using the latest materials and technological innovations of now to build it.


At the same time, the On Cloud X has also been released. A new On shoe that goes in a different direction to the pure On Cloud 2019, which is more focused toward the dedicated runner. Read on to discover the differences between the two shoes and which one I think is the best.


RELATED:


See the table below for an easy to digest On Cloud vs Cloud X feature comparison table with the added benefit of my own personal thoughts.

On Cloud 2019 On Cloud X
Running Surface Road Road
Fit and Design Neutral – Very comfortable fit as they have been designed to allow triathles to run in them without socks. Neutral – Also a very comfortable shoe does feet a bit more snug in the toe box than other On running shoes.
Weight 230g (US M 8.5) 218g (US M 8.5)
Lacing System Elasticated (Slip-on Style) Standard lacing system
Drop 6mm 6mm
Outsole The Cloud uses the newer CloudTec® system made from On’s Zero-Gravity EVA Foam. This foam helps keep the weight down on both shoes The Cloud X uses the CloudTec® system made from On’s Zero-Gravity EVA Foam. This foam helps keep the weight down on both shoes
Running Feel The Cloud definitely has a more minimal feel to it due to the lack of cushioning on the insole. The elasticated lacing system won’t hug your feet in the same way as with the Cloud X. But don’t forget, this is also a very good active lifestyle shoe, so not just for running. The Cloud X takes the win for me when it comes to comfort while running. The flexible, stretchy and breathable upper mesh combined with the traditional laces all for a very comfortable experience.

In Summary

So there you have it, my On Cloud vs Cloud X comparison in all its tabular beauty. If it’s a lightweight running shoe that offers comfort, flex and breathability then I recommend going for the On Cloud X running shoe. This is my current ‘go-to’ shoe for all my road running training, I love everything about it and the fact my feet feel so good after using them for hard sessions.

If you’re after a lightweight versatile shoe for an active lifestyle that you plan to use every day, and looking fashionable is important to you, then I recommend the On Cloud. Its convenient ‘slip-on’ feature with elasticated laces is great for people constantly on the move and it’s nice knowing you can break out into a run with this high-performance shoe whenever necessary.

Although the On Cloud and Cloud X shoes share a similar name and offer some of the same design features, they are actually quite different. I wouldn’t say one is better than the other, they are both excellent for the purpose they were designed for.
