The Carbon X. The impossibly cushioned, carbon-plated speed machine. Built for speed but not compromising on comfort, this shoe provides a fast yet cushioned ride. Featuring a carbon fiber plate which is designed to emphasize the Meta-Rocker geometry and provide a propulsive and explosive ride. The shoe also has a wide, flared midsole platform which offers a supportive and stable base. The PROFLYTM X experience with CM Betty Fly Foam sits above the carbon plate and there is injected rubberized EVA below the plate, which gives enhanced comfort. Finally, the single-layered engineered mesh provides a stripped back, lightweight and extremely breathable upper.
More about this brand
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.
