RMAT is a blended rubber EVA which maintains many of the comfortable and smooth-riding properties of Hoka's original foam but also brings useful new properties such as high elasticity which exhibits greater levels of rebound than traditional foams for higher levels of running performance. It also provides fantastic durability whether the runners go long or hard, RMAT will break in gradually, taking a pounding and keep bouncing back. Lastly, it ensures supreme grip as it latches onto angled, wet, uneven surfaces for a fast and reliable ride. Also on the outsole, strategic rubber placements are provided for lightweight durability.
Hoka One One is the brainchild of two gravity sports enthusiasts Jean-Luc Diard and Nicolas Mermoud. Both men have been adventuring for as long as they can remember, and their trail running experiences have taken them across the globe.
Both Jean-Luc and Nicolas are committed to the values of freedom and enjoyment and feel that this is part of to the running experience whether running on the trail or in the city. With this in mind they started to look at the variables that affected the performance of different types of runners.
They quickly came to an important conclusion; fatigue, impacts and muscle strains were challenges that runners of all stripes had to deal with every day. So Jean-Luc and Nicolas came up with a brilliant idea, why not design a shoe that would help to alleviate these problems - so that freedom and enjoyment could be guaranteed every time you go running!
From that idea Hoka One One was born. The word Hoka is derived from the ancient Maori language and roughly translated to "now it is time to fly". That's just how it feels to run in a pair of Hoka One One shoes; with each and every step, your foot flies.
Today's runners from around the world are learning about the benefits of Hoka One One, they have been used by marathon winners. 50 miles, 100 miles and even 2000+ miles ultra-runners as well as runners just like you or I, who want to enjoy running, perform at their peak and feel that important sense of freedom whilst maintaining top physical performance and protecting against shocks, jolts and injuries.
So put your best foot forward, it's time to fly!Manufacturer product code - HOK1012050BCTRS
