Here at HOKA®, we pride ourselves on our light-as-a-feather shoes that are designed for runners, by runners. Founders Jean-Luc Diard and Nicholas Mermoud created HOKA® running shoes back in 2009 because they wanted to boost their speed and downhill traction while out on the trails. They haven't looked back since. Superior cushioning. Improved stability on rough terrain and downhill routes. Soft landings. Whether you're getting ready for the Sahara Marathon or you've scheduled some treadmill training sessions, our HOKA® running shoes will elevate your experience.


Time to explore the next-level features that'll supercharge your run. We're talking cushioned PROFLY™ dual density midsoles for extra bounce and comfort, as well as lightweight designs made for unstoppable speed. Our grippy soles deliver traction on even the most uneven ground. Plus, breathable fabrics allow for superior ventilation. From peaceful trails through the Bouchaoui forest to city routes that take you past the Ottoman architecture of Algiers, our HOKA® running shoes adapt to all kinds of terrain. Whether you're aiming for optimum speed on a round-the-block sprint or testing your endurance, HOKA® will help you achieve the best performance of your life.


So, how did our running shoes get their name? HOKA® means 'to fly over the earth' in Maori. Once you've tried out our built-to-last shoes, you'll see that this is an accurate description. You can thank the J-Frame™ outer sole with Active Foot Frame technology, which moves with your feet without restricting you. And we didn't stop there. Our running shoes are designed ergonomically to deliver a tailored fit and total comfort. Whether you're a complete novice or preparing to compete in your next race, HOKA® running shoes will help take your performance to the next level.
