HOKA ONE ONE Running Shoes

Learn to Fly

HOKA ONE ONE was born in the mountains, but it's right at home on city streets.

HOKA's shoes stand out among other running shoes. They are designed to help soften your landings and roll your momentum forward. That's possible thanks to HOKA's bold midsoles.

The maximal midsoles in HOKA shoes give your foot a cushy place to land and a wide platform to push off from. But they're not just soft: HOKA carved its midsoles to keep your momentum moving forward.

The Meta-Rocker midsole shape in shoes like the iconic Clifton 6 and pillowy Bondi 6 makes for a smooth transition from heel to toe and propels you toward your next step. So you can make running feel more like flying.

The HOKA ONE ONE Carbon X uses a carbon-fiber plate to add pop

HOKA Carbon X

From pushing the limits of cushion to pushing the limits of speed, HOKA is leading the way.

Engineers sandwiched a curved carbon fiber plate into its signature stack of bouncy foam to deliver an entirely new experience from a HOKA shoe. Elite ultrarunners debuted the Carbon X in California during an attempt to break the 100K world record. No one topped the 100K time, but runner Jim Walmsley set a new 50-mile record to solidify the shoe's place as one of the fastest in the industry.

The Carbon X is a light and fast racing shoe dressed up as an everyday trainer that's sure to propel you to your fastest times yet.

Women's HOKA Running Shoes

The women's HOKA Clifton 6 continues the line's iconic legacy.

Designers retooled the Clifton for a lighter and faster ride than ever. Fleet Feet testers loved how the new embroidered midfoot design achieved a lockdown fit without cumbersome overlays, and they praised the shoe's premium cushioning.

Despite the Cilfton 6's huge stack height, its weight is barely noticeable: a women's size 7 weighs 7.4 ounces, and the men's size 9 weighs 9.0 ounces.

So whether you're running a speed workout or cruising your weekend long run, the Clifton 6 can keep up.

Men's HOKA Running Shoes

HOKA shoes help runners set serious records.

From the quickest jaunt across the country — San Francisco to New York City — to the fastest known time on the Appalachian Trail, HOKA shoes are made for the long haul. But you don't need speed records in your sights to see the difference.

The men's HOKA Speedgoat 3 will get you over rolling hills and through jagged trails while the Bondi 6 will churn through as many miles as your legs can handle. Whether you're scrambling over rocks or plodding city streets, HOKA shoes promise to make running feel like flying.

HOKA Rincon

The HOKA Rincon is one of our favorite new running shoes—and for good reason.

Built with as much foam as the venerable Clifton 6 but with a lighter curb weight, the Rincon is suited for versatility. The big stack of cushion will protect your for miles and miles of running, but the teensy weight blends into the background during speedier work.

HOKA also made the foam firmer for a more responsive push.

Fleet Feet testers love the new Rincon for its ability to excel on long days, fast days and any days in between.

HOKA Shoe Technology

HOKA ONE ONE's advanced technology coaxed pack-leading performance out of its max-cushioned running shoes.

The most noticeable component of any HOKA shoe is the hefty serving of foam in the midsole. HOKA stuffs its shoes with foam for maximum shock absorption and silly levels of comfort. But the lightweight foam compound does all that without slowing the shoe down.

It's not just for comfort, though. HOKA carved a rocker shape into its midsole to make the heel-to-toe transition quicker and smoother. Called the Meta-Rocker, HOKA can shift it forward or backward to enhance your efficiency any way you like.

For stability, HOKA uses two unobtrusive features: an Active Foot Frame and J-Frame. The Active Foot Frame cradles your feet in place like a bucket seat in a race car, dropping you deeper into the midsole so you always land in the right place. Beneath the footbed, a HOKA J-Frame employs a higher density foam to give medial support without the use of plastic or posts.

Feel the HOKA difference for yourself.
