Inspiration for the Huaka was born out of runner demands for an ultralight, fast, smooth, and responsive ride in a shoe that still offers a high level of cushioning. This shoe is great for faster running on the pavement or on groomed dirt roads and trails. The outsole features a full ground contact design and more durable rubber strategically placed in high impact zones such as the heel and inner forefoot (big toe area). Full length RMAT material comprises the midsole, providing a “responsive resilience” that allows the shoe to be highly cushioned without feeling slow. The drop is a bit less than most Hoka models (2mm vs. the average 4-5mm). Along with a no-sew, seamless upper these features all add up to a shoe meant for fast running in cushioned comfort.
Drop: 2mm (26mm heel to 24mm forefoot)
