Hoka One One
Designed for running on hard, man-made surfaces, the BONDI 5gives you the cushiest of long rides and just enough traction to let you wander onto light trails should the mood take. The next iteration of the game-changing Bondi legacy, the ‘5’ is the most cushioned shoe in HOKA ONE ONE’s road specific lineup. With a more accommodating toe box, increased breathability and support, and better compression set, it delivers a smooth, cushioned, and balanced ride. The full-EVA midsole and early stage Meta-Rocker are topped off by an updated Comfort Frame upper and padded tongue, giving superior all around comfort.
As you’d expect from its award-winning lineage, CLIFTON 4 is light, cushy, and very, very fast. At its core is HOKA ONE ONE’s famed midsole geometry, with an advanced foam package to ensure consistent cushioning through the life of the shoe. Combined with a forgiving and adaptive forefoot, Clifton 4 is a super smooth ride. Then there’s 4’s good looks, which will turn heads for sure. And that’s even before they experience the superb fit and breathable mesh upper. While still very much a Clifton, there’s an air of refinement to this current iteration. We believe Clifton 4 is the best Clifton yet.
MACH has the award-winning Clayton in its genes, boasting the same startling trio of benefits: maximum cushion and super responsiveness in a surprisingly lightweight package. Mach takes lightweight performance to a new height with a dual density PROFLY™ midsole and full RMAT® outsole. PROFLY™ provides a forgiving landing and responsive toe off, while that RMAT® outsole offers additional responsiveness, as well as durability. Mach stands out farther from the pack with its sporty, clean, breathable mesh upper.
HOKA ONE ONE’s design approach has always been driven by what the runner needs to improve their performance, regardless of existing norms or technologies. The launch of Arahi with its J-Frame™ midsole in 2017 was no exception, and we believe it heralded the future of the stability running shoe. We call the approach Dynamic Stability, which supports by guiding the foot through its natural gait cycle, without employing traditionally rigid and unforgiving materials. This means you can enjoy HOKA ONE ONE’s cushioned, lightweight ride without constrictions. The ARAHI 2 brings all the innovative features from the original Arahi and adds an all-new upper. More breathable, especially for the top of the foot, Arahi 2 offers a long, cool (and supportive) ride.
STINSON ATR 4
Built on a new wider last, the STINSON ATR 4 has a much improved fit—appropriate to what you’re going to put it through. Namely, long, hard runs on whatever trails and roads you choose to explore. This versatile All Terrain performer features a wider flare in the forefoot and toe, which allied with the shoe’s cushion and durability, means you can go farther and longer. And with more lugs, more tightly packed, you can be surefooted whatever the conditions. Stinson 4 truly puts the All Terrain in ATR. It’s aggressive-looking and aggressive doing, taking you far and wide in comfort.
CHALLENGER ATR 4
Often called Clifton for the trail, CHALLENGER ATR 4 looks even more like a Clifton with its cleaner, less busy look and more breathable upper. And like the Clifton 4, Challenger ATR 4 is fast and light, offering a smooth, smooth ride. Where it diverges from the Clifton and takes the path less traveled is in its multi-lugged outsole. Arranged closer together towards the heel for a smoother, more consistent ride, its lugs have a wider spread in the forefoot to help with grip on the trail and in wet conditions. Still as versatile and supportive no matter the running surface, Challenger ATR 4 has improved upper durability in the areas you need it (like a larger toe guard area). Let’s take to the trails people!
Inspired by Karl Meltzer, who holds the record for most 100-mile trail race wins, the fastest completion of the (2,190 mile) Appalachian Trail, and epitomizes the “go everywhere, run everything” attitude, this shoe is designed to attack all breeds of technical trail. And with this bold, fully redesigned iteration, we’ve improved fit, stability, and durability. Built on a new last, the wider midsole creates a more stable platform for the foot and offers a wider toe box with reinforced areas where your feet need them. The outsole features deeper, more aggressive Vibram® lugs which hold up to all kinds of rugged terrain, while the more forgiving upper offers improved comfort up top. The SPEEDGOAT 2 means business. This is one fast, tough trail running shoe.
