Hoka One One is a dream, imagined by two mountain enthusiasts, came true in 2009. Jean-Luc Diard and Nicolas Mermoud are both in search of more freedom and pleasure: they consider it as an integral part of the running experience in the mountains as well as in town. Aware of the rapid evolution of outdoor activities, they note that fatigue, shocks and muscular tension are obstacles that every type of runner faces on a daily basis. So Jean-Luc and Nicolas decided to design a shoe that would reduce these nuisances, so that freedom and pleasure are the sensations that win every time you go running! From this idea was born Hoka OneOne. Derived from the Maori language, Hoka OneOne means "Gliding on Earth". This is exactly what a runner feels when he runs with a pair of Hoka OneOne shoes: with each stride, the sensation of flying away. Today, more and more runners around the world are enjoying the benefits of Hoka OneOne shoes. On marathons, on trails from 10 kms to 300 kms(!), for athletes or for occasional runners who simply want to have more fun running, Hoka OneOne shoes help improve your performance while benefiting from optimal protection. Protection against external elements, shocks but also protection of your joint capital, better respect of your physical integrity to better protect you from possible injuries.
