Shoe Of The Week: Hoka One One Huaka

The Hoka One One Huaka is very cushy but also quite light and responsive.

This lightweight model is Hoka’s quickest and most agile shoe yet!

A maximalist racing flat? That might be the best way to sum up the Huaka, a lightweight speed merchant with a highly cushioned midsole and an energetic ride. Although it’s high off the ground like other Hoka shoes, it has the lowest heel-toe offset of any Hoka model and a rockered profile, allowing for a natural, efficient and very smooth ride. As a result, this is the most agile and quickest Hoka shoe to date (but not quite as light as the new Clifton model), one that can be used for a variety of running efforts, from long training runs, to tempo and fartlek workouts, to racing from 10K to a marathon or even longer. With subtly aggressive outsole lugs, the Huaka offers a hint of versatility for mild trail surfaces.
