We’re gear­ing up (pun total­ly intend­ed) for a fun day here at The Clymb.

When our co-founder Cec Annett tried on a pair of Hoka OneOne trail run­ning shoes at last mon­th’s OR, he was tru­ly impressed. A 2″-4″ rock trail had been cre­at­ed for test­ing pur­pos­es and Cec described the run­ning expe­ri­ence as, “It was like float­ing over it.” Don’t let the uncon­ven­tion­al style of Hoka OneOne fool you. These run­ning shoes use award-win­ning technology…

  • Lev­i­tat­ing — By using an EVA 30% soft­er and increas­ing its total vol­ume to 2.5 times that of a typ­i­cal trail run­ning shoe, they allow for more cush­ion­ing than any oth­er shoe on the mar­ket today, dis­si­pat­ing up to 80% of the shock asso­ci­at­ed with heal strik­ing when running.
  • Rolling Up — 40mm high sole design enabled to design a 13cm rock­er­ing pro­file, rep­re­sent­ing 50% of the sole length. This design allows for flu­id and nat­ur­al stride tran­si­tions, less­en­ing the move­ment of the knee by as much as 20%, increas­ing efficiency.
  • Like a Feath­er ‑15% lighter than ref­er­ence trail run­ning shoes. At 320 grams size 8UK per pair, they’ll make run­ning uphill as much fun as they make run­ning downhill.
  • Grip — With 50% more sur­face area than the typ­i­cal trail run­ning shoe, and 35% more rub­ber cram­pons, you’ve nev­er run as con­fi­dent­ly as you will in a pair of Hoka’s.
  • Sta­bil­i­ty — With a foot recessed into the mid­sole, you’ve nev­er run as con­fi­dent­ly as you will in a pair of Hoka’s.

… and are endorsed by ath­letes such as top USA trail run­ner and ultra-marathon­er Dave Mack­ey, ultra-marathon­ers Karl Meltzer, and Diana Finkel. Not to men­tion win­ning Inno­va­tion of the Year 2010 from Endurance Trails and vot­ed Edi­tor’s Choice, Best Inno­va­tion by Trail­Run­ner.

Some­times big­ger is bet­ter and Hoka OneOne are designed to help you run longer, more often, and with­out injury. And then there’s the math: 1 year, 8 coun­tries, 12 major vic­to­ries = The #1 Ultra­run­ning rac­ing shoe in the world.
