Cushioned landing, firm push-off: that’s the core concept behind On, the fastest growing brand in run specialty. On’s patented technology combines all the benefits of a soft training shoe and a hard and fast racing shoe; a radical development in the sports industry. Land on the sand, push off from the running track!

Athletes who have worn Ons and their coaches have reported greater muscle activation, new personal bests and shorter recovery times. These findings are also backed up by scientific research: independent studies by the reputed Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich, Switzerland have confirmed that the patented CloudTec® system substantially reduces athletes’ heart rates and blood lactate levels.

Sir Charles Entertainment

Come Hither! Come Hither!  Ye loyal patrons and newcomers alike!  And listen to this tale! The Legacy began in 1987. That was the year, the brave and noble Sir Charles himself, Charles Zerambo, took the mighty and powerful Microphone, SFX-calibur, from the stone. He spoke and played music for a crowd of peasants in the Kingdom of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. They danced the night away night after night, and soon the kingdom became known for Sir Charles' glorious night festivals.

Charles became a master at wielding the microphone, traveling there and back again to the surrounding kingdoms. He celebrated the love in weddings, the glory in graduations, and the bliss in birthdays. And speaking of birthdays, soon, Sir Charles gave birth to his son, Nathaniel, and he passed on the mighty SFX-calibur to him, training him at a young age all battle techniques he learned in the art of sound. Now, together, they fight the good fight of bringing the best entertainment to all the land!
