Where do you go when you want to feel the air beneath your feet? The trails of the Julian Alps or the city pavements of Celje? Whether you're taking on a marathon or sprinting around the block on your lunch break, HOKA® backs you every step of the way. Our game-changing technology is loved by world-class runners and enthusiastic novices alike. Why? Because we simply make running better. How? It's just what we do. We've had a lot of practice.


HOKA® was founded in 2009 by Nicolas Mermoud and Jean-Luc Diard. When they created their first running shoe, the HOKA® ONE ONE®, they had one goal – to make running easier. As trail runners, they knew how important it is to have a built-for-purpose running shoe that helps you push harder. With HOKA® running shoes, you can achieve peak performance and focus on nothing but the finish line. Our Meta-Rocker geometry reduces the height difference between heel and toe to support your natural running gait. Intelligent cushioning provides comfort with different degrees of thickness to meet your abilities. With every stride, your feet feel lighter than air.


A lot goes into creating THE HOKA® DIFFERENCE – from the look of our shoes to next-level tech that keeps runners going mile after mile. Active Foot Frame technology cradles the heel for the most secure fit so you feel locked in uphill, downhill and on the flat. HOKA® running shoes with PROFLY™ two-part midsoles deliver super-soft landings and explosive toe-offs for lightweight speed like you've never felt before. HOKA® is a Maori word meaning ‘to fly over the earth’ – and we chose that name for good reason. Our running shoes will help you discover your true capabilities. Whether you're attempting your first mile or training for the Ljubljana Marathon, our groundbreaking ergonomics will help you reach maximum speed.
