Hoka Carbon X SPE Running Shoes
The HOKA ONE ONE Carbon X-SPE is a carbon plated speed machine with a highly technical upper and cushioned and propulsive midsole.
Mono Mesh Upper
Constructed using Mono Mesh, the Hoka Carbon X-SPE Running Shoe offers a comfortable fit and maximum breathability. The mesh actively offers lightweight support and airflow and efficiently wicks away the build-up of excess sweat and moisture to leave your feet feeling cool, dry and comfortable as you strive for the best results and performance. The mesh encourages cool air to circulate, creating a cooler, drier environment for your feet to thrive in. The bootie construction provides a sock-like fit for ultimate comfort, while TPU eyelets create a secure fit. The Carbon X-SPE also features a microfibre pull tab so that you can easily remove the shoe. The moulded external heel counter creates a stable and supportive ride.
Carbon Fibre Midsole
Designed using many midsole densities, the Carbon X SPE ensures cushioning, comfort and most of all propulsion. Profly X provides a soft, propulsive experience by protecting you during a heel strike and propelling you forward for a firm toe-off. A softer density has been used on the top to increase underfoot comfort and provide the perfect amount of resilience and response. Additionally, a bottom density works to increase energy return and ground contact for you can go further for longer with peace of mind that your footwear can take you anywhere. The bottom layer is also abrasion resistant and works to reduce the risks of wear and tear. Sandwiched between the different densities is a carbon fibre plate which curls under the lateral toes to deliver a smoother transition throughout the gait cycle. The carbon plate minimises energy loss, increases propulsion and deliver an abundance of structural support making running feel effortless and giving you the confidence to reach new PB’s. The carbon plate helps to maintain the meta-rocker which lies underfoot and as a result, the two technologies work in tandem to amplify the rocker’s benefits. The early-stage Meta-Rocker is applied in the midsole to increase running efficiency. Meta-Rocker midsole geometry is specifically designed with a low heel-toe differential and a sculpted outsole to create a unique fulcrum effect, like a rocking chair to encourage a guided gait cycle. This design supports a runner’s natural form while promoting an efficient, smooth roll from initial impact to toe off.
