Hoka One One’s maximally cushioned midsoles offer superior protection, comfort and propulsion. The distinctive rockered geometry creates a platform for optimally efficient natural running mechanics. The oversized outsoles allow for maximum stability, traction and connection to the ground. Not only do the shoes provide a sense of weightlessness, superior comfort and efficiency but Hoka’s athlete results prove optimal performance. They have recorded over 30 podium finishes on five continents in the past 18 months. Additionally, these running shoes are 15 percent lighter than most others, they make running uphill as much fun as they make running downhill and with less body fatigue.
COMFORT AND CUSHIONING: The midsole foam is 30% softer than the material used in traditional running shoes, and there is 2.5 times more volume than in most running shoes. The extra cushioning dissipates up to 80% of the shock associated with heel striking when running and allows for as much as 20mm of compression in the heel, plus extra protection allowing you to soar over any surface.
ROCKERED MIDSOLE GEOMETRY & LOW HEEL-TOE DIFFERENTIAL: A 4mm heel to toe drop and rockered profile creates a unique rolling motion that encourages proper form by allowing a runner to easily strike the ground near the midfoot.
CONTROL: The unique, patented bucket seat is recessed up to 20mm within the midsole unit so as to best position your foot for optimum control. This high degree of control also ensures you maintain responsive contact with the ground at all times.
STABILITY: The outsole platform is 30% wider, providing a stable base and counterbalancing the excess height a voluminous midsole. Coupled with thermo-polyurethane reinforcements, provides enhanced structure and support.
SUPERIOR TRACTION: An outsole Pattern similar to an animals foot provide enhanced flexibility and precise nimble movement to adapt to texture of pavement underfoot for a solid grip and enhanced durability.
FEATHERLIGHT WEIGHT: Lighter than most road and trail running shoes less than 11 oz, they make running uphill as much fun as they make running downhill and with less body fatigue.
