1. It is lightweight

As a long-distance runner, I am one of those who believe that a durable pair of shoes should be bulky and heavy for better cushioning. I stopped believing that ever since I bought my first pair of ON running shoes.

ON running shoes are lightweight and flexible. It has CloudTec cushioning technology that adjusts to how your foot hits the ground. Another thing I notice is that my foot can feel a bounce every time I land a step. It’s like I’m stepping on the clouds.

2. It is versatile on your travel activities

One of my struggles with packing is how to strategically pack all the shoes that I would need for travel. Before I got my pair of ON running shoes, I would need shoes for touring around, for jogging in the morning, for minor hiking, and for riding a bike.

What I like about my ON running shoes is that it can be used for all those activities making it my best shoes for travel. Since it is lightweight, it will not add too much weight to my luggage. If I want to pack light, I wear it during travel to save space in my luggage.

Can we use running shoes for daily use during travel?

Running shoes that are designed to perform can be used even as a lifestyle sneaker. It is being comfortable while being ready for anything.

One example is when I became a member of the officiating team in the 2020 SEA Games (Southeast Asia Games). While most officiating role would require a lot of walking or standing, I was assigned to be a runner on the spot.

It means I needed to deliver the printed results from point to point as fast as I can. If I was not wearing my ON Cloudflyer running shoes, it would have been difficult for me to run around during the competitionΒ for 2 days.

Is it bad to walk in running shoes?

No, running shoes are designed to be cushioned for added comfort. It also supports pronation and protects you from injury. Walking does not require as much support and protection but it wouldn’t hurt being a little extra on your shoes.

Are ON cloud shoes worth it?

Reading other people’s reviews, some find it expensive while most people find its price to be reasonable. A pair costs from $120 to $250. I including people I know using ON running shoes wouldn’t mind paying for good quality pair. For us, you get what you pay for.


I hope that when you travel, you will hit your daily step goals to stay active and healthy even during vacation. And for you to love walking all the time, you will need comfortable travel shoes. What are the best travel shoes for you?
