Born in Switzerland seven years ago, On has become the fastest growing global running brand with offices in Zurich (Switzerland), Portland (USA) and Yokohama (Japan). It has one simple mission: make running fun. A team of sports scientists, world-class athletes and designers spearhead this mission and has resulted in On shoes and Performance Running Gear winning design and technology distinctions the world over – including most recently the ISPO Product of Year Award (amongst others) for 2017/18. In On shoes, elite athletes have become World Champions, winning podiums, titles and Olympic medals. The shoes sport the patented CloudTec sole, giving runners a soft landing and powerful take-off in one. Recently, On has launched into the world of apparel – already being recognised for their innovation and bringing together design and technology to allow for effortless running. Six years after market launch, On is available from more than 2’200 specialist running stores in 50 countries across Europe, North America, South America and Asia-Pacific – and on the feet of over 2 million runners.
