Named after the Maori word for "spring back", The Hoka Hupana Running Shoes are responsive, breathable and create the sensation of flying just above the ground. With it's clean lines, versatility and comfortable fit, the Hupana is a shoe you need to add to your running shoe collection.
An open knitted pattern upper provides ultimate breathability, allowing air to circulate to your feet while you run to increase ventilation, keeping you cool even throughout longer distances. A seamless construction minimises hotspots and chafing, which can often cause intense irritation or blisters during runs. The upper also offers a snug fit around the foot, which is secured by a lace up front for your convenience. From run to workout, to walking around town, this agile little shoe is perfect for wearing all day long without becoming uncomfortable.
A full length RMAT rubber features for the midsole to offer an extremely bouncy, dynamic and responsive ride. RMAT is a blended rubber EVA which maintains many of the comfortable and smooth-riding properties of Hoka's original foam but also brings useful new properties such as high elasticity which exhibits greater levels of rebound than traditional foams for higher levels of running performance. It also provides fantastic durability whether the runners go long or hard, RMAT will break in gradually, taking a pounding and keep bouncing back. A moulded Ortholite sockliner enhances the cushioning of these shoes while also wicking moisture away to prevent the chance of slipping in the shoes.
RMAT is also the main component of the outsole, for high rebound cushioning and traction on a variety of different surfaces by latching onto wet, dry or angled ground. Outsole siping also offers superb flexibility and enhanced traction so that you can properly grip the ground beneath, propelling you forwards in the process.
