Positioned as an endurance racer, the Carbon X-SPE delivers the same propulsive speed as its predecessor in a street-ready silhouette. Engineered with a responsive, carbon fiber plate and aggressive Meta-Rocker, this performance shoe is a formidable competitor. Created in limited run, the Carbon X-SPE sports a tongue-free upper encased in a soft, mesh bootie and lined in a thin, mono-mesh that hugs the forefoot. Featuring a unique combination of foams, this special edition style delivers an inherently soft, stable and responsive ride.

I ordered online, great service as they arrived quickly. A very lightweight shoe with excellent support but Mens 10.5 US is very tight compared to my previous Hokkas which were also US 10.5.
First carbon plated shoe for me and I'm really impressed with the feel and response. Regardless of distance (5k or Half Mara) they have been fantastic. Fit of the shoe was spot on for me - size 10. Thanks Hoka
