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.

  • 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.

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!

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.

Perfect, absolutely perfect! Runs (no pun intended) true to size. Running in them is wonderful; plenty of room in the toe without having any foot movement, very lightweight. The extra cushioning gives bounce to my step. I bought these after my husband bought a pair and would not stop raving. I clearly see why. A premium price but a terrific value.

Like many of the other reviewers, I came to this shoe because of injuries. In my case, pretty bad plantar fasciitis in the left foot and the remains of a stress fracture in the right. My nephew, who is a hard-core runner, told me about Hoka One One and I decided to get a pair. When I took them out of the box and put them on to walk around the house, I felt as if I were walking on clouds. Today I took them out for a long walk (2 hours plus) on brick and cobblestone sidewalks and they were terrific. I didn't even notice my left heel until 90 minutes or so into the walk, and even then it wasn't really pain, just a kind of dull awareness. I walked around in the shoes for another hour or so and they were still great. I think these are going to be a winner for me.

I got turned onto these shoes by a fellow gym rat, who had been suffering from running injuries - the usual plantar fasciitis and Achilles issues, and wow...she was right! It's not quite the "floating on air" feeling I used to get when I got a new pair of running shoes, but pretty darn close! (Closer than any other shoe I've tried in the last...10 years? Ack.) These are wonderfully cushiony, supportive, and don't "bite" anywhere. (I have narrow, weird heels, and shoes are often cruel to them. These aren't!) They encourage proper running form (less heel strike, more of a roll). I'm finding I actually Enjoy running again - woo hoo! So I don't care if they look a little odd, I'm lovin' running again! One big (not bad, just important) thing that others have mentioned: you really can order your normal street shoe size. I initially ordered 2 pairs: my normal shoe size (8.5) and next size up (9), because I couldn't believe it - I always have to order a half if not a whole size larger in running shoes - but not these.
