ON Running memorial day sale 2023 UNI
ON Running

There are just two things I plan to do this holiday weekend: shop and enjoy the great outdoors. And lucky me, the ON Running Memorial Day sale can help me do both. As a bonus, the sale actually extends beyond Monday, May 29, and you can score ongoing deals on last year's most popular models well after MDW ends. (The ON Running sale section is a little tricky to find; instead of being clearly marked as ‘Sale,’ you can find discounts in the ‘Last season’ section on the site.) The comfortable fitness brand currently has tons of styles included in the discounts, with up to 40 percent off sneakers (including both women’s and men’s styles) and up to 50 percent off clothing. All you have to do to shop the deals it make a free account with ON Running.

As for what makes ON so special, fans of the brand rave about just how comfortable the sneakers are for a wide range of activities. There are super cushioned styles, like the Cloud X (was $138, now $110), for those who want extra support while walking or jogging, as well as sleek minimalist styles, like the Cloudwisft (was $150, now $90), for folks who want to cut down on weight for speedy sprint workouts. Rachel Gulmi, PureWow's operations director of branded content, is an avid walker who says, “I have the classic Cloud 5 sneakers and I’ve loved those so much, I decided to get a second pair of ON’s but in a more sporty style. The Cloudstratus are seriously so comfortable and I love the colorways offered. Admittedly, I’m not a runner so I can’t speak to how they feel hitting the pavement but I wear them every day for all sorts of different activities and they are the best. They fit like a glove from the moment you put them on and aren’t constricting at all (and I have wide feet). I’m already eyeing my next pair!”

PureWow reader Delia McCubbin also loves wearing her ON Running kicks for more than just workouts. “I have the Cloudrunners in white/frost and I love them. I wear them out when I run errands and want to look sporty. They are unbelievably comfy and I’d do more in them, like head outdoors for a run, but I don’t want to get them dirty (maybe that can be my excuse to buy a second pair?). They’re also a great airport sneaker.”

Convinced? Here are five ON Running sneakers currently on sale you’re definitely going to want to add to cart.

  • Discount: 20 percent off
  • Size Range: 5 to 11
  • Pros: fits true to size, partially made from recycled materials
  • Cons: minimal cushioning, limited color options

This lightweight sneaker is a great “do it all” option for walking, running and gym workouts. It was originally designed for running, and boasts a nice springy sole with a weight of just 198 grams, but reviewers say it’s still plenty comfortable for all-day wear. ON Running ranks its level of cushioning as low, so if you do feel you need a higher level of support, you might want to opt for something with a higher cushion rating.

  • Discount: 20 percent off
  • Size Range: 5 to 11
  • Pros: great for everyday use, partially made from recycled materials
  • Cons: limited colors available

This cute lace-up was designed for city walking and an “on the go lifestyle,” so you can bet it will keep your feet feeling good on even the longest of city walks. The upper is made from a breathable mesh to prevent overheating, and the heel has extra cushioning to better protect you from hard concrete.

  • Discount: 20 percent off
  • Size Range: 5 to 11
  • Pros: great for everyday wear, lots of color options, made from vegan leather
  • Cons: limited sizing available in certain colors

Another cute everyday sneaker, the Roger Clubhouse has a vintage vibe we just can’t get enough of. That said, it’s far more supportive than your typical old-school style with a 7 mm thick sole made from ON Running’s proprietary CloudTec cushioning. They’re also lighter than a lot of rubber-sole kicks, weighing in at just 270 grams.

  • Discount: 20 percent off
  • Size Range: 5 to 11
  • Pros: ample cushioning, lightweight, good for walking or running in nature
  • Cons: runs small (it’s recommended you go a half size up)

This sneaker may have been intended for trail running, but we’d be just as happy to wear it with jeans on our next park picnic. ON Running ranks the cushioning as Plush, which is just one step down from their highest level or Max. Their all-terrain design features an exaggerated sole to give you ample grip on the go. P.S. There is also a waterproof version available, although it is not included in the current sale.

  • Discount: 30 percent off
  • Size Range: 5 to 11
  • Pros: under $100, fashion-forward look, great for everyday wear
  • Cons: only one color currently on sale

Don’t be fooled by the incredibly cool design—this sneaker has substance in addition to style. The Cloudeasy is all about minimalism, with half the standard number of parts that go into a typical ON Running sneaker and a super-sleek pull-on fit. That slimming down of parts doesn’t just make the shoe look cool, it also helps minimize the environmental impact of producing the shoe, especially considering that about 37 percent of the shoe is made up of recycled materials.
