Hoka shoes are a break from the current trend of minimalist lightweight running shoes with less cushioning. They have pioneered a patented innovative design, creating lightweight, nimble shoes with an over-sized outsole.
Hoka shoes feature maximally cushioned midsoles and active meta-rocker technology. They are designed to minimize impact while maximizing comfort, traction and stability. All of this leads to improved running form and body mechanics.
The over-sized outsoles on Hoka shoes have 50% more surface area than traditional running shoes. This gives the runner more stability and better traction. The key is that they do this while being 15% lighter than most other running shoes.
This combination of lightweight, stability and traction are what sets them apart. It allows the runner to feel like they are floating over the ground. The technical benefits of the over-sized outsole include:
- More Travel
- Feather-Light Weight
