Running is hard work.
Whether you are training for your first 5K or your 30th Crim, you need to put your body through consistent and grueling training to get where you want to be.
Somewhere in the process the constant pounding of our feet on the pavement and trails can take a toll on our knees, body, and feet causing fatigue and injury. These challenges can quickly become obstacles in reaching our goals, and are quite often difficult to overcome.
Wouldn’t it be great if there was a shoe that was designed to alleviate these problems?
Well, there is. Say hello to the Hoka One One.
This is a shoe like nothing you’ve ever seen before, and needs to be experienced first-hand to fully understand and appreciate how they can change your running experience for the good.
The Hoka One One website states:
“With the goal of designing shoes for optimal performance, comfort, efficiency and fun, Hoka One One has pioneered a new philosophy in running by merging aspects of minimalism and maximalism.”
This shoe is minimalistic in nature with its low heal drop and super light-weight. However, it also has a super thick midsole to absorb the pounding for a comfortable run, and has a much larger outsole area to improve stability and traction. It is hard to fully understand how a shoe can offer minimalism, comfort, and stability at the same time but that is the magic of the Hoka One One.
The shoes also have adaptive tuning technology where you can take a drill from your garage and drill out part of the midsole to better adapt to your pronation or supination.
We are seeing a lot of people who couldn’t run in the past due to knee pain or weight issues now able to run with the Hoka One One shoes, and this excites us!
Do you know anyone who could potentially benefit from the comfort and performance these shoes offer? Bring that person with you into Complete Runner to experience the Hoka One One first hand from one of the few retailers in the state to offer them.
