New HOKA for 2017
We are excited to announce that we have just received the latest release range of HOKA OneOne shoes at intraining Running Centre. The 2017 range includes the following with some updates we have all been waiting for.
HOKA Bondi 5
The Hoka Bondi 5 is the most cushioned road shoe available in Hoka’s extensive lineup of maximal cushioned shoes. The Bondi 5 is suited to the neutral to minimal pronation runner who is looking for the ultimate ‘run on clouds’ like feeling in a lightweight package.
Updates to the Bondi 4
More accommodating toe box: The toe box of the Bondi 5 is much more forgiving and allows a little more room to breathe for those of us with a thicker foot.
Increased ventilation: The updated lightweight mesh upper provides a more breathable shoe that keep your feet dry and cool in the harsh Queensland conditions.
Padded tongue: Improving on the previous edition Bondi 4, the Bondi 5 has increased the padding in the tongue to provide an even more comfortable fit. This is a welcome addition, which will serve well especially towards the end of a long run.
The Hoka Bondi 5 is available in mens D and 2E widths and womens and D width only.
HOKA Arahi – NEW
The Arahi is Hoka’s first foray into a stability shoe with the new J-Frame midsole density. The Arahi is ideally suited to someone who over pronates. Previous models of Hoka, whilst ‘stable’ due to their all encompassing sole, was often overlooked or not suitable for those who over pronate. Over pronation is more common in people who have lower arches which essentially leads to the mid foot collapsing.
The Arahi also deviates slightly from the traditional Hoka, where the mid-foot of the shoe is quite narrow. A fantastic addition however to the Arahi is the more durable outsole, which means your Hoka will take longer to wear out – a major plus for us Hoka-holics.
Whilst there is now midfoot stability added to the Arahi, Hoka stand true to their mantra of an ultra lightweight shoe with a lot of cushioning.
The Hoka Arahi is available in mens D and 2E with the womens available in D width only
Hoka Clifton 3
The ever popular Clifton 3 is now available in two new colours for 2017 for men and women. The Clifton 3 is touted as the most popular Hoka shoe to date. Clifton 3 is still the lightest shoe available in the Hoka range and provides a smooth transition from heel to toe. This combination we feel helps you run with less effort and less impact, almost to the point where the shoe is doing the work for you.
The Hoka Clifton 3 is available in mens D widths with the womens available in B width only
