World class athletes deserve world class running spikes. The Rocket series was designed to embody HOKA ONE ONE®’s renowned performance and comfort, and enable our athletes to fly around the track. This shoe has a more flexible and forgiving spike plate, which meets the needs of the longer distance runner. We also added a thicker layer of EVA and sculpted arch support to add more comfort than a traditional spike, as well as a breathable mesh upper with supportive frame. The Rocket LD is ideal for races 1,500m and longer.
