The Armoire Assistant: Run Your City On Clouds

On is swiftly changing the footwear game (again)!

Painting the town red takes on a whole new meaning with the introduction of On’s newest urban threat: the On Cloudswift. If you’re looking for an On shoe to keep you light on your feet in the urban jungle, we’ve got your feet covered.

Thanks to On’s new Helion superfoam, each step in the Cloudswift promises a tough, durable landing with high traction and BIG energy release on takeoff. Its sock-like engineered mesh upper lets your feet breathe, while the silicone cage surrounding the core of your foot keeps you grounded without feeling weighed down.

We’ve already shown the ladies how to take it to the streets in this urban delight, and now it’s time for you gents to gear up out there! Here are the looks your Armoire Assistant has in store for you this week.

Get ready…

Brooks Greenlight Tight (Black)
Nike Essential Jacket (Barely Volt)
Nike 365 Running Top (Pink)

I’m sure you’ve heard the phrase, “dress for the job you want, not the job you have.” For this speedy look, we’re thinking that you should, “dress for the PR you want, not the PR you have.” For those cooler workouts, check out the Brooks Greenlight tight. This light, fast tight is so nice, they’ve created it twice for men and women. It’s a versatile choice, with its bounce-free phone pocket, adjustable drawstring waistband and soft-brushed interior for added warmth and moisture-wicking.

If you’re going with a heavier layer on the bottom, switch it up with something light (and hell, go bright!) up top. Nike’s 365 Breathe Running Top took the best qualities of their Breathe Tee from last season, including the extra perforation in the heavy sweat areas and hits of reflectivity. If the bright pink isn’t enough to get you seen, the reflective tape will be!

To complete the look and to give you extra coverage against those sporadic spring showers, we’ve gone with the Nike Essential Jacket in Barely Volt. It’ll help repel water while remaining insanely light, so you’ll barely feel like you’re wearing something over your 365 tee!

Now, how to transform your look from day to night in a flash…

…to paint the town red!

Vuori Banks Short (Azure Linen Texture)
Nike Dri-Fit “I Can’t Feel My Legs” (Pink)
On Weather Shirt in (Navy)

For this cool, summery look, we’ve been inspired by a newer brand from Southern California taking the men’s athletic apparel world by storm: Vuori. Designed for both land and water, this Banks Short comes unlined, but has a moisture-wicking, lightweight fabrication. You can rock this during your next workout, casually grab post-run beers with friends, or head to the beach to cool off! The pockets have drainage ports, so soak up that water, guys!

Graphic tees are all the rage, so why not continue that trend off the track with this Nike Dri-Fit Nathan Bell “I Can’t Feel My Legs” shirt. I mean, we’ve all been there post-workout, right?

Want to transition this look from day to night? Add a layer with purpose by choosing the On Weather Shirt. Its soft-touch material not only keeps you warm on those cooler summer morning runs, but will also help hold in any much-needed heat during the winter months, as well! The chest pocket is layered with a contrasted piece of fabric so you can leave your valuables protected and close to your heart always.

Fashionable & Fast,

Your Armoire Assistant
