The Mauna Kea Mid Waterproof Boot was created for athletes seeking higher ankle protection on the most rugged of mountain trails, but this boot also works very well for light hiking as well for those wanting a boot but with the outstanding fit, cushioning, and support found in the Mafate trail running shoe. Developed by avid adventurers Jean-Luc Diard and Nicolas Mermoud, the Hoka trail running shoe was inspired by a philosophy to make it possible for all to participate in trail running and to experience the adrenaline of going fast downhill hill safely and confidently. This technology has now been incorporated into the Mauna Kea Mid. By using an EVA 30% softer and increasing the total volume to 2.5 times that of a typical trail running shoe, the Mafate provides more cushioning than any other shoe on the market today, and dissipates up to 80% of the shock associated with heel striking. With up to 20mm of compression in the heel, and a low ramp angle, confidence is gained in running downhill, relaxing the body and making running downhill fun and comfortable. A 40mm high sole allows a 13cm rockering profile design. This represents 50% of the sole length and provides the runner with fluid and natural stride transitions, lessening the movement of the knee by as much as 20% and increases efficiency. With 50% more surface area than the typical trail running shoe, and 35% more rubber crampons, the Hoka's provide more surface area for better traction and float. The foot is recessed into the midsole and provides excellent stability.
Please Note: Hoka OneOne shoes are considered to be small to size. We would suggest ordering at least a half size bigger than your normal shoe size.
