The updated Hoka One One Arahi delivers on the potential of the Arahi 4 in a smooth, comfortable lightweight stability shoe that finally dials in the fit of the upper. Version 5 of the Arahi shares the same stack height with the Clifton 7 and can be thought of as the stability version of that shoe. If you find the heel of the Clifton to be slightly unstable for your pronation level, the Arahi’s J-Frame will provide necessary stability without getting in the way. The Arahi 5 is more flexible that the previous version and it is very clear that every element of this shoes is built for support without compromising comfort and performance. The most significant change in this update is the upper. If you found version 4 overly voluminous verging on baggy, the combination of a new soft, pliable engineered mesh with a new elastic tongue gusset will keep your feet locked down. The new “elf” heel configuration keeps pressure off your achilles without any slipping. Everything in the Arahi 5 is dialed in for comfort and support. Come into Fleet Feet Albany & Malta today to try them out.
