TECHNOLOGY THE HOKA ONE ONE RULES
Hoka One One has engineered a unique performance midsole geometry that features a higher volume, softer density, and greater rebounding foam than standard running shoes. Along with maximal cushioning, this provides runners of all types with an energizing, stable ride. Hoka One One understood from the beginning that natural foot motion was extremely important for uniformity of stride. Hoka One One running shoes incorporate minimum drop geometry along with a rolling rocker design to promote consistent rhythm in the runner's foot strike.
Meta-Rocker midsole geometry, specifically engineered with a low heel-toe differential and a sculpted outsole radius in the heel and toe, encourages a unique natural “rolling” motion. Benefit: Supports a runner natural form, and encourages an efficient, continuous positive rolling motion from heel-strike to toe-off.
Engineered midsole volume which is up to 2.5X the volume of performance-specific cushioning material compared to standard running shoes. Benefit: Unsurpassed shock attenuation, a sense of weightlessness, and an inherantly stable ride which is designed to reduce the fatigue in your feet, legs and body.
ACTIVE FOOT FRAME
Uniquely engineered Active Foot Frame midsole geometry allows the foot to sink into the shoe as opposed to sitting on top of the midsole.
Benefit: Designed to provide integrated stability which is adaptable to a wide range of feet and running styles.
A new midsole material with new characteristics: increased rebound, better durability, and exceptional outsole grip, even on wet surfaces. It provides state-of-the art resilience to breakdown, underfoot stability and durability.
The Meta-Rocker midsole geometry, specifically engineered with a low heel-toe differential encourages a guided foot gait cycle.
Benefit: Designed for active recovery by supporting a runner’s form and efficient running mechanics.
Lightweight, no sew construction, support frame designed to provide security between the foot and the upper on any terrain.
Step 1: Take a sheet of paper, put it on the floor, one side against a wall.
Step 2: Put your naked foot on the paper, with your heel against the wall and mark with a line the extremity of your foot.
Step 3: You now just need to measure the length from the border to the line you drew.
And then check your result in the chart below to know your Hoka size.

Running in Hoka shoes is like nothing you’ve ever experienced, and it’s something you’ll never forget. Unlike shoes that produce a hard or rigid feeling, Hokas offer up luxurious softness and a sensation of weightlessness. Running in Hokas is effortless, like running in a playful dream state. Each step is full of curiosity and wonderment, immediately connecting you to new possibilities. You lose yourself in every stride — you bounce, you float, you soar, you fly. It feels like fantasy, but it’s real.
Runners of any age and experience level will appreciate the values of Hokas. Whether training for or racing an ultramarathon, the unique design, shape and midsole resiliency of the shoes can softly cushion your stride. New runners will find them comfortable and forgiving, while veteran ultra runners will appreciate the liveliness they put into every footstep.
Hoka One One shoes are also ideal for running trails with abrupt climbs, steep descents and technical features such as rocks, roots and trail debris. The uniquely designed midsole transforms downhill running and acts as a buffer against jagged obstacles on the trail. While traditional low-to-the-ground shoes can be very unstable on rocky trails, Hoka shoes are reliably steady because the additional midsole foam helps to stabilize the foot by allowing the outsole to make secure contact with the ground.
