HOKA Cielo X1



Keep your foot on the gas pedal and get to the finish line faster in the HOKA Cielo X1.

This ultra-fast road racer has everything you need to bring the speed. It is incredibly streamlined and light weight, featuring a winged carbon-plate sandwiched between two layers of responsive, bouncy foam. HOKA’s iconic rocker shape helps you be even more efficient and smooth on the race course. One tester said it best when she stated "I almost feel like my feet are springs when I run in these shoes," in our HOKA Cielo X1 review.


  • Upper: An engineered knit upper with a knit gusseted tongue will have you locked and loaded for race day. It has a snug midfoot lockdown and is incredibly breathable to keep you running your fastest.
  • Midsole: A winged carbon plate is sandwiched between two layers of Supercritical, resilient PEBA foam that gives you plenty of propulsion towards the finish line. An early stage Meta-Rocker keeps your legs turning over quickly and efficiently.
  • Outsole: A PEBA outsole with zonal rubber placement for weight savings.

Note: this is a unisex-sized shoe. Men's sizes are shown — women should order 1.5 sizes below their standard running shoe size. For example: for a women's size 9.5 shoe, order a size 8.
