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.

Just did a 10 mile run in these and they are fantastic! They accommodate my orthotics and I felt like I was running on clouds! A much better fit for my narrow foot than the Stinson Tarmac and I ordered a 1/2 size smaller than usual and they are perfect! Used to be a loyal fan of Asics & Brooks, but no longer...will definitely purchase another pair of these! Thanks, Zappos!

Love it! I can walk and run in this shoe without using my orthotic! It took a little getting used to since the shoe comes up fairly high on the ankle. With a good sock and snugging the laces tight, it fits well and provides unbelievable support. I don't want to wear any other shoe. I would prefer more subdued colors, though.

I'd also recommend: mephisto sano, birkenstock

I love these shoes! I bought them at my nephew's recommendation. He runs ultramarathons and I am just a walker, but I was having a really awful flareup of plantar fasciitis that was making it almost impossible for me to walk without pain. So I ordered these and put them on and was amazed. At the worst of my plantar fasciitis flare-up, I could walk 90 minutes in these shoes on brick and concrete sidewalks with no pain to speak of, and now that the flareup is over, I truly feel when I put these on that I could walk forever. I have since bought two other styles of Hoka One Ones and they are all great, but these are the least expensive and if anyone is holding off because of cost, I would say it is ok to buy these instead of the more expensive models - you will still get the benefits of the cushioning. These are wonderful.

I'd also recommend: FitFlop, OluKai

I love these shoes. I wear them with socks, otherwise they are not as comfortable. I have dealt with plantar fasciitis and these really help.

I am training for the Susan G. Komen three day, 60 mile walk and these shoes carry me through hundreds of miles of training and the event with no blisters! They are so comfortable...
