New spring 2019 models and product updates from HOKA ONE ONE

9093

HOKA ONE ONE, a division of Deckers Brands, has unveiled its spring 2019 line and notes that it now ‘offers the largest and most diverse line-up the brand has ever announced for a spring season’. The product line includes new editions of (and new additions to) the Fly Collection, key updates to the Trail, ATR and Dynamic Stability categories, and a new hiking-focused shoe collection called Sky.

Fly updates
Innovations and two additions give the versatile, performance-based Fly Collection a new look.

The Cavu 2 (MSRP £105) has been stripped down and loses more than an ounce over its predecessor in the men’s version; the Mach 2 (MSRP £130) has been reformulated with a full- RBOUND midsole and a single-shot, adhesive-free PROFLY construction, plus a no-sew upper and retuned Meta-Rocker to solidify this as the brand’s light, fast running trainer. The best-selling Elevon remains in the line-up with new colourways (MSRP £130).

Alongside these updates is another addition to the collection. The Tivra is designed with high- intensity gym workouts in mind; including, high sidewall wraps, a locked-down midfoot in the upper, and maximum ground contact in pivot zones to maximize the shoe’s lateral capabilities and versatility for activities beyond running. MSRP £85.

ATR and Trail
The Challenger ATR 5 receives a full update while retaining the stack height, heel-to-toe drop, weight-to-cushion ratio and all-terrain versatility that have reportedly made this shoe a hit. The ATR 5 features a new midsole and outsole construction with more rubber coverage for increased durability and broader lugs designed to better function both on- and off-road (MSRP £115).

The Stinson ATR 5, meanwhile, retains the wide midsole and outsole of the ‘4’, but features a new upper with a midfoot lockdown and a more open, breathable mesh (MSRP £130).

The Speedgoat 3 retains the aggressive, adaptable midsole and outsole that have helped this trail shoe shine on some of the world’s most challenging terrain, but introduces an upper with a vamp and midfoot lockdown for better lateral support ‘no matter how your foot lands’ (MSRP £125).

Dynamic Stability
The lightweight-yet-supportive Arahi 3 is rebuilt from the ground up for its third edition. The signature J-Frame still provides dynamic stability for over-pronators, but it accompanies an improved ride, and more open and breathable upper with supportive overlays (MSRP £115).

The Gaviota 2 retains the same midsole and outsole as its predecessor, but also adds a ‘more dialled fit’ and upper to improve the brand’s most stable selection (MSPR £130).

Recovery/Ora
In addition to slight updates to the Ora Slide 2 and Ora Flip, HOKA is introducing the Ora Shoe, a ‘packable, comfortable full-coverage shoe with a foldable heel’. Positioned as being versatile and breathable, it is ‘perfect for a post-workout shoe or as part of an active lifestyle’ (MSRP £35).

Sky Collection
Three new models seek to make HOKA a leader in the hiking space.

  • The Sky Kaha offers a ‘supreme weight-to-cushion ratio’, waterproof eVent bootie in the upper and trekking-specific last to support long days (and more) on the trail (MSRP £170).
  • The Sky Arkali is designed to handle the roughest terrain while remaining as light as possible; a Kevlar-enforced MATRYX upper, high-abrasion rubber toe cap, and aggressive Vibram rubber lugs offer grip, protection and versatility on uneven, challenging ground (MSRP £160).
  • The Sky Toa is designed for fast hiking, with a full RMAT midsole to balance cushion and responsiveness, a lightweight, technical upper featuring an eVent waterproof bootie, and a running-inspired midsole and outsole for adaptive stability underfoot (MSRP £150).

  1. The designers botched the latest version of the Stinson ATR. They changed the best part of the shoe. The sole! The material of the sole is much harder with less cushion and shock absorption. I was hoping they go back to the old sole in 2019. On my last pair of ATR 3 will need to look for another shoe in the mean time.
