The Hoka One One Sky Arkali is a mid-top hiking shoe which integrates running and climbing footwear innovations to render performance and comfort on the trail. Its upper is made of Matryx, a lightweight synthetic material that offers durability.
The Sky Arkali uses Hoka One One’s patented Profly midsole to generate a cushioned ride for the wearer. It’s Vibram Megagrip outsole provides ample traction on most types of terrain.
This mid-top hiking shoe from Hoka One One caters to male and female outdoor lovers. Its length selection is composed of whole and half sizes while width options are limited to standard only. The closure system, which employs adjustable heel and ankle straps, grant a secure and personalized lockdown. Moreover, it runs relatively true to size.
Empowering users to tackle rugged trails is the Hoka One One Sky Arkali’s Vibram outsole. It’s made of a durable Megagrip rubber compound to endure constant ground contact. The outsole’s aggressively-shaped 5mm lugs deliver multi-directional grip when used on wet and dry surfaces. Its front end extends towards the shoe’s forefoot area to provide extra protection from stubbing.
The Hoka One One Sky Arkali’s Profly midsole allows hikers to negotiate tricky and uneven terrain with ample cushioning and support. It consists of two layers, one made of lightweight ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA) on top and another composed of durable Rangi foam at the bottom. The former creates a cushioned landing while the latter material is firmer to give the responsiveness needed for a propulsive toe-off.
This sturdy hiking shoe from Hoka One One is equipped with Active Foot Frame technology. It allows the wearer’s foot to settle comfortably into the midsole rather than sitting on top of it, yielding added stability without excessive weight. Its default footbed generates extra underfoot comfort for the wearer.
The Hoka One One Sky Arkali’s Matryx upper integrates Kevlar strands into its construction to promote durability without adding weight to the gear. An abrasion-resistant rubber toe cap extends to the upper’s midfoot section for extra protection and robustness.
This Hoka shoe features a synthetic lace and set of eyelets for managing the fit. Velcro straps on the top of the closure and running along the back of the ankle create structure and deliver proprioceptive support.
