Description

  • Video Description View the Video Description for this product! (Please note that the color shown in the video may no longer be available.)
  • Train for excellence and steal the win on race day in the Kailua Tarmac from Hoka One One™.
  • A neutral road shoe designed for daily training and racing.
  • Designed for maximum cushioning, energy return, comfort and protection without hindering performance and movement.
  • Breathable air mesh upper.
  • Flexible TPU overlays provide lightweight, targeted support.
  • No-sew construction reduces irritation and the likelihood of blisters.
  • Heel pull loop for an easier on and off.
  • Lightly padded tongue and collar for added comfort.
  • Soft textile lining offers a great step-in feel.
  • Foam insole for extra underfoot plush.
    Midsole:
  • Hoka One One midsole foam is 30% softer than in most traditional running shoes and has 2.5 times more volume. This dissipates up to 80% more shock associated with heel striking and allows up to 20 mm of compression in the heel.
  • An oversized design helps reduce the rate of pronation and supination by promoting stability upon impact.
  • Ultralightweight materials make it 15% lighter than traditional running shoes. This makes running uphill just as enjoyable as running downhill, with less fatigue.
  • Rocker midsole geometry and low heel-to-toe differential encourages proper form by allowing for an easier mid-foot strike.
  • Midsole Differential: 5 mm.
  • High-abrasion sticky rubber outsole delivers reliable traction and durability.
  • Imported.
  • Measurements:
    • Weight: 9 oz
  • Product measurements were taken using size 8.5, width B - Medium. Please note that measurements may vary by size.

I have Bondi Evo shoes and I like them as well, but these are even better. They are true to street size, are a little lighter, and a little narrower than the Evos. I am a former runner with serious arthritis/plantar fascia issues. I used to wear shoes like Brooks Radius and Asics Nimbus and I would buy them 1/2-1 size larger than street size. With this Kailua model I have even better cushioning and no pain at all. If you have such issues or are looking for an ultra-marathon shoe with a narrower foot, this may well be the shoe for you as well.

Not wide enough for my feet, need to have wide sizes available, poor arch support, very disappointed and will have to return them. Very expensive shoe considering it's made in China.

I LOVE these shoes!!!! I wore them recently for a half marathon in FL after only wearing them on 3 training runs (two on a treadmill). These were so comfortable that I breezed right through the half without any foot pain. Usually the bottoms of my feet are in pain after about 9 miles and I just want to get to the finish. Not in these Hokas! It was the most enjoyable half I have ever run (4th) and I even took my dog for 2 walks the same day of the half marathon and went for a 4.5 mile run 3 days afterwards. I could have never done that previously because of the foot pain and soreness I would have had without these shoes. I usually wear an 8 in running shoes (Brooks, Saucony) but needed a 7.5 in these. The arch support was not enough for me but these accommodated my orthodics well without taking out the shoe's original inserts. I run and walk in these most days. Wonderful shoes!!!!! I will be trying the Stinson Tarmacs next.

I've owned Stinson, bondi b speed, bondi b and now these. By far my favorite model. Lots of cushion but not as bulky. I'm a shoe junkie and I've tried pretty much tried every brand on the market hands down my favorite outdoor shoe. Pairs up well with the Skechers go run ultra run shoe for shorter distances and treadmill use, in my humble opinion.

I took these out of the box and did a full marathon! I have horrible foot issues and was so excited. I then did my first 50k 2 weeks later, a half two weeks later, a half and 10k in the same weekend and another half and all in 8 weeks of buying my shoes! Bravo!
