In the fourth edition, the Mach 4 by Hoka takes its most significant leap forward, built on themes inspired by the Rocket X and Carbon X.
Designed for logging long miles, this everyday trainer delivers a lively ride, and energetic underfoot feel that is typical of Hoka. Softer and bouncier than the previous iteration, the Mach 4 employs a harmonious blend of foams — merging an incredibly soft, lightweight foam on top with rubberised foam directly beneath. This up-tempo shoe has been crafted with a new pull tab, revamped upper made from heat-pressed TPU embroidered yarns and a refined collar shape that alleviates pressure on the Achilles. Light, fast and unquestionably responsive, the Mach 4 delivers a daily dose of speed.
HOKA ONE ONE (Maori for “time to fly”) came to be on top of a mountain in New Zealand, with the descent in mind. Their philosophy is simple: make running downhill easier on the body by rethinking the nature of running shoes.
And it was in the pursuit of this that HOKA’s signature, hyper-cushioned footwear was born, featuring patented performance midsole geometry with a higher volume, softer density, and greater rebound than standard running shoes. This unique technology, along with a ‘rolling rocker’ design to promote consistent rhythm, has helped make HOKA the fastest growing premium running shoe in the world, and first choice for joggers and elite athletes alike.
