The Hoka One One Arahi features a durable rubber in the outsole. The Zonal Rubber Placement is strategically placed to give protection to high wear areas. Lastly, the outsole has reliable lugs that deliver decent traction while running on the road.


The midsole of the shoe utilizes the new J-Frame technology that is constructed from the traditional EVA foam but with a firmer density. The J-Frame wraps around the heel area and it extends to the medial side, providing responsive cushioning and lightweight support. The Early Stage Meta-Rocker is also designed to provide a smoother heel to toe transition.


The upper of the Hoka One One Arahi features a breathable upper coverage. The 3D Puff Print Frame delivers detailed support while keeping the shoe lightweight. Like the Arahi, another Hoka One running shoe that features the 3D Puff Print Frame is the Clifton, which is one of the brand's most popular shoes.

The seamless construction of the shoe helps reduce hot spots and irritations. Also, the padded collar and tongue offers an enhanced fit and added comfort.
