The Arkali heralds a new breed of hiking shoe. There’s off-road, off- trail and then there’s off the map. HOKA ONE ONE® has just gone vertical with the Arkali. A combination of running shoe innovation (light and comfortable), climbing shoe technology (exceptional grip and traction) and hiking boot engineering (rugged and protective), the Arkali looks ready for anything. And with a MATRYX® upper, high-abrasion toe cap and adjustable heel and ankle straps, it is.
It features a PROFLYTM midsole, which has a softer heel and more responsive toe off, plus 5mm multidirectional Vibram® Megagrip rubber lugs. The Arkali is waiting to take you to the top of the world.
High-abrasion rubber toe cap extends to the midfoot for increased protection
Ankle and heel straps offer structural and proprioceptive support on uneven terrain
PROFLYTM midsole for a cushioned landing and propulsive toe-off
EVA top midsole for running shoe cushion at an incredibly light weight
RangiTM bottom foam offers durable cushioning and a responsive feel
Vibram® Megagrip hi-traction outsole with 5mm lugs
Multidirectional lugs for supreme grip on varied terrain
Grip is fantastic and the construction is great. I have EE wide feet and weird ASF toes. When I do any distance in these +15km hikes on technical terrain I get mild pain in the side of one of my feet. I have tried every fancy lace combination I know to get more height and space but I just can’t crack the combo to be able to do distance and not get sore feet. I think these will be relegated and replace with Altras Olympus. I wanted to love them i just think the toe pox is too flat and and pointer for flappy EE wide feet like mine.
Lovely shoe - supremely comfortable - plush sole, like walking on air - and a very good looking boot - very happy with my purchase
I was after a comfortable shoe that I could use for walking and general use. I found them to be comfortable from day 1 and great for walking. Sizing was spot on.
