WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT
Feel the Innovation in Every Step
Wearing HOKA is a feeling unlike any other. Enhanced cushioning and a meticulously-engineered midsole provide a unique ride: one designed to be smooth, soft and efficient. And we are always thinking up new ways to make movement more fun, more purposeful, and more empowering. Click below to learn about the technologies that make HOKA footwear one-of-a-kind.
WHERE WE CAME FROM
“Radical change often comes about in trying to solve a simple problem. Our original goal was the improve endurance race times by designing a shoe to go downhill faster. In doing so, we inadvertently reinvented the running shoe.”
-HOKA Co-Founders Jean-Luc Diard and Nicolas Mermoud.

WHERE WE'RE GOING
While we were first known for shoes with oversized midsoles, today our shoes and apparel are designed with that same problem-solving inspiration to meet the running, walking, fitness and outdoor needs of a wide variety of users. We continue to take a bold and unexpected approach to empower athletes of all levels to feel like they can fly.
