Three new road models meld performance and style in new, lightweight running shoes
HOKA ONE ONE®, a division of Deckers Brands (NYSE: DECK), unveils its Spring 2018 line, including the new FLY collection. This line offers characteristic HOKA cushion and performance elements in a new, lightweight, visually-pleasing package designed to appeal not only to veteran runners but also a growing subset of fitness-focused runners. The line includes innovative updates to core models, and runners will appreciate cleaner, lighter, more durable uppers across the board. Highlights include improvements to the brand’s versatile, lightweight, all-terrain Challenger ATR, as well as its foray into lightweight stability trainers, the Arahi.
HOKA’s new FLY collection premieres sleek, lightweight footwear aimed at a new subset of runners who take their fitness seriously, but simultaneously care how their shoes look and feel as well as how they perform. The FLY collection introduces three new shoes to HOKA’s line designed to empower fitness runners who will enjoy HOKA’s ride characteristics along with a cleaner, simpler visual.
All three FLY models offer protection as well as propulsion with HOKA ProFLY technology in their midsoles. They feature a softer heel for a more forgiving landing—characteristic of high-cushioned HOKA models—as well as a firmer, more responsive forefoot for more propulsion and quicker turnover.
Lightweight and simple in its design, the Cavu offers a neutral performance trainer or racing shoe; it’s a serious shoe that will work for entry-level runners, and which features an entry-level price. MSRP $110
Adopted from the previous Clayton, the Mach features a clean design and an incredible weight-to-cushion ratio, allowing for everything from serious racing to everyday mileage. Its accommodating toebox and inherent stability offers something for every runner. MSRP $140
The Challenger ATR 4 features the same plush-but-lightweight midsole, accommodating toebox, and rugged outsole—including 4 mm lugs for off-road traction—as its predecessor, and it will still be a top lightweight product for both road and trail running. The toecap has been extended for additional protection from rocks and roots; the upper, meanwhile, will be both more breathable and more durable thanks to reduced overlays and more durable mesh. MSRP $130
