Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

Developed by avid adventurers Jean-Luc Diard and Nicolas Mermoud , the Hoka trail running shoe was inspired by a philosophy to make it possible for all to participate in trail running and to experience the adrenaline of going fast downhill hill safely and confidently. Hoka Technology : Levitat ing: By using an EVA 30% softer and increasing the total volume to 2.5 times that of a typical trail running shoe, the Mafate provides more cushioning than any other shoe on the market today, and dissipates up to 80% of the shock associated with heel striking. With up to 20mm of compression in the heel, and a low ramp angle, confidence is gained in running downhill, relaxing the body and making running downhill fun and comfortable. Rollin g Up: A 40mm high sole allows a 13cm rockering profile design. This represents 50% of the sole length and provides the runner with fluid and natural stride transitions, lessening the movement of the knee by as much as 20% and increases efficiency. Grip: With 50% more surface area than the typical trail running shoe, and 35% more rubber crampons, the Hoka's provide more surface area for better traction and float. Stability: The foot is recessed into the midsole and provides excellent stability.
