We are excited to announce that the QED Style store will be a select retailer for On running shoes starting November 15th. On is a Swiss based shoe company founded in 2010 by trio of triathletes who wanted a running shoe with more sole forgiveness and cushion support. After a series of prototypes and the help of Swiss engineering, On released the On Cloud running shoe in 2014 and sales exploded. The On Cloud quickly became a runner’s favorite in Runner’s World magazine and won the ISPO Gold Award in 2015 and 2016 for Best Performance Shoe. On running shoes can now be found in over 3,500 select specialty retailers spread across 50 countries.
On Running Technology:
The most unique feature to On running shoes is the patented CloudTec technology. The sole of the shoe is composed of hollow rubber foam pods called “clouds”. These cloud pods provide cushioning and allow for an incredibly soft landing. The result is a zero-gravity like experience, or as they advertise, “running on clouds”. Also, given that the cloud pods are made of foam, the On Cloud is the world’s lightest fully cushioned running shoe.
Another bonus feature is the “easy-entry speed-lace system”. The elastic lace allows for an easy slip on/slip off while not sacrificing much stability and structure in the shoe while running. Each pair of On shoes comes with an additional set of traditional laces for those needing optimal stability or a tighter lace up.
QED Style Store:
In addition to the On Cloud, we will be offering the On Cloud Waterproof in both men’s and ladies’ options. The two styles are nearly identical, however the On Cloud Waterproof is equipped with an upper mesh that is 100% water and wind proof. We thought this would be a nice option better suited for the wet winter weather coming soon.
The QED Style store will be one of four retailers in the Salt Lake valley offering On running shoes. The experience in these shoes is pretty unique. I bought my first pair earlier this summer, and they have been my go-to running and active shoe. I have given a couple as gifts, and everyone raves about them. You will quickly notice how light weight and comfortable they are. Beyond that, they have a great look. The Swiss design offers a modern athletic styling that goes great as a lifestyle shoe with jeans or chino style pants.
One of our goals in opening the QED Style store was to embrace and partner with other vendors in order to enhance the overall experience for the customer. Imagine the store as a marketplace consisting of products that we see as very good and complimentary to QED Style apparel. On running shoes are a perfect example of this, and we are thrilled to act as a specialty retailer. Come on down and try some on! They are incredible. We promise!
