HOKA ONE ONE was started by Jean-Luc Diard and Nicolas Mermoud in 2009. Their initial goal was to create a shoe to run downhill faster to enhance endurance race times. That’s how Hoka running shoes appeared, with their signature oversized outsoles and maximalist-style cushioning. At the time, barefoot running ruled the day, so, in a sense, what the company did was a revolution. Soon Hoka One One shoes gained popularity among various runners for delivering great cushion without sacrificing weight. And now you get the incomparable experience of not only going downhill but uphill too.
Today, Hoka makes a wide range of athletic shoes, such as running shoes ranging from low-drop designs to max-cushion shoes to specialized Hoka stability shoes for road, trail, and track, as well as footwear for other activities, such as tennis, hiking, backpacking, and gym training. Throughout the Hoka sports footwear line, the models feature extra cushioning, lightweight materials, a wide, stable platform, and geometry of the midsole and outsole designed to encourage inherent stability and an efficient stride.
The brand’s name, derived from the Maori language, loosely means "fly over the earth," and it’s not for no reason. Hoka shoes will give you a feeling of soaring like a bird. The company guarantees that once you slip them on your feet and feel their special cushioning, breathability, and support – there won't be any looking back for improvement in your runs.
Hoka One One is a synonym for premium cushioning. Hoka running shoes are equipped with a high-performance midsole that provides extraordinary shock absorption without adding weight and delivers more bounce than conventional cushioning materials.
Hoka Rocker shoes feature a uniquely shaped sole that helps to guide the foot through each stride, promoting a smooth and efficient gait cycle. The Meta-Rocker also provides an extra boost of energy return, helping runners to feel more springy and responsive with each step. Choose Early-Stage Meta-Rocker if you want a faster transition from heel to forefoot, or go with a Late-Stage rocker for more stability.
The Active Foot Frame holds your foot and heel deep in the shoe rather than on top of it and provides support and integrated stability without the need for any other constricting elements. Whether you choose the Active Foot Frame in the rearfoot or midfoot, it will hold and support your foot like a bucket seat in a race car.
Made of lightweight, firmer-density foam, the J-shaped midsole provides superior support to your foot and heel without weighty, rigid materials.
A dual-density midsole PROFLY™ delivers softer cushioning in the heel and firmer foam in the forefoot. As a result, you can land comfortably but push off quickly.
