Run shoe specialist HOKA ONE ONE, a division of Deckers Brands, has announced its second partnership with American- and Japanese-inspired fashion label Engineered Garments. The latest collaboration targeting the hiking, outdoors and casual wear market will ‘create a unique footwear collaboration featuring the Tor Ultra Low style’ for this autumn/fall 2018 season.
The unisex style will be available on hokaoneone.eu and with HOKA retailers Browns, Mr Porter, Outsiders and Oki No – starting on October 22.
The collaboration for HOKA and Engineered Garments features the Tor Ultra Low, a low-cut edition of the brand’s best-selling Tor Ultra Hi Waterproof hiking shoe. According to HOKA, this blends the brand’s signature maximum cushion and ride characteristics, plus lightweight construction, with an aggressive Vibram Megagrip outsole and eVent waterproof to ‘withstand everything from tough hiking conditions to your daily commute.’
The unisex HOKA x Engineered Garments release includes three different colourways – Black, Racing Red and Simply Taupe. The new edition also includes special textile updates such as a vamp leather overlay, mesh lining and colour match print webbing. The shoe retails for £170.
HOKA ONE ONE produces premium performance footwear for athletes of all types. Initially distinguished by its extra-thick midsoles, HOKA shoes were first embraced by competitive ultrarunners because of their enhanced cushioning and inherent stability. Today, HOKA shoes are designed to meet the running, walking and fitness needs of a wide variety of users.
HOKA’s road running, trail running, hiking and fitness shoes aim to appeal to serious runners and fitness enthusiasts alike who favour the shoes’ unique ride and performance characteristics.
