The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is one of the best times of year to stock up on new pieces for your home and wardrobe. This year, we’ve seen particularly good deals on sneakers, including a select few from On Running, the brand behind some of our top-tested running shoes. The sale only lasts for another week, and we’d be remiss if we failed to let you know that the On Cloudmonster, one of our favorite cushioned running shoes, is 23 percent off thanks to the annual savings event. There’s still a handful of sizes left in the three color options, so there’s still a chance to get your new pair while saving $40.
The Cloudmonster stands out from the pack thanks to an extra-chunky layer of On’s signature CloudTec (a series of circular pods that form the foundation of every shoe in the brand’s lineup). In our testing, we found the extra cushioning gives exceptional support to the midfoot and heel. This design makes it easier for the shoe to propel you forward during a run, no matter if you’re on pavement, a treadmill or trails. Even with a higher amount of cushioning, the shoe is still notably lightweight at 275 grams.
The shoe also has a proprietary Speedboard that’s designed to create soft landings and explosive rebounds that keep you moving. Some reviewers have noted the Cloudmonster has a wider fit, so we’d recommend it if you’re shopping for sneakers with a wide toe box.
The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale only lasts through August 6. In other words, you have one week to save on the Cloudmonster, so be sure to shop with some haste before the price goes back up. Not into the heavily cushioned Cloudmonster? We’ve listed some more On Running deals below.
