On Cloudrush vs Cloudflow 2019: Which On shoes are best?

Since posting my On Cloudrush review a couple of weeks ago, a couple of people have asked me what the difference is, between the On Cloudrush and On Cloudflow. This is probably because I mentioned in my On Cloudrush review that they both weigh the same. That actually got me thinking that these shoes deserved a good old fashioned comparison post to sum up their features, side by side.

See the table below for an easy to digest Cloudrush vs Cloudflow feature comparison table with the added benefit of my views sprinkled on top.


On CloudrushOn Cloudflow
Running SurfaceRoadRoad
Fit and DesignNeutral – 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.
Weight220g (US M 8.5)220g (US M 8.5)
Lacing SystemStandard lacing systemStandard lacing system
DropA 5mm drop makes this shoe feel very natural to run with.6mm
Outsole – This is a pretty major difference between the two shoes.The Cloudrush uses the original On Running Cloudtec pod system which could be the reason that this more minimal looking shoe weighs the same as the more cushioned On Cloudflow.The Cloudflow uses the newer pod system made from On’s Zero-Gravity EVA Foam. This may be the shoe weighs far less than you would expect, looking at it in comparison to the Cloudrush.
Running FeelThe Cloudrush definitely has a more minimal feel to it due to the lack of cushioning in the shoe. This makes for an extremely responsive run but maybe not quite as comfortable for endurance running.These shoes feel nicely cushioned allowing you to push hard on the downhills, knowing your feet are protected with good cushioning. As mentioned before though, the toe box is more snug than other On shoes.
