A lightweight, engineered mesh upper tops off the HOKA Arahi 6. Recycled materials in the mesh lining help make this shoe more environmentally friendly.
HOKA shaved some weight off the upper, but it still delivers the same support as its predecessor. Zones of breathability provide ventilation while still maintaining a supportive feel.
“I enjoyed the breathable mesh upper. It moved well with my feet during the run. I forgot to apply Squirrel’s Nut Butter before this run but I experienced no blistering or hot spots whatsoever,” one reviewer says.
A plush tongue and an extended heel tab add to the overall comfortability of the shoe.
“I am a big fan of the heel’s high build, my thin heels are quite happy about that,” says one reviewer.
Some reviewers enjoyed the fit of the Arahi 6, while others felt it was a bit too snug.
