Hoka One One

by admin on March 24, 2012

A major trend in running is the trend (some say fad) to minimalist or barefoot running, which is why it is surprising that the Hoka One One running shoes are becoming popular. The Hoka One One shoe is what could be called a maximalist running shoe as it has maximal cushioning or shock absorption which is the opposite of the trend to minimal or no cushioning or shock absorption. While there is a lot of rhetoric and propaganda in the minimalist debate, there is very little science so all there is to go on is the anecdotal testimonials and those who have tried the Hoka One One shoe have been very positive. Certainly more research is needed to determine the differences between the minimalist shoes and the maximalist shoes like the Hoka One’s.
