Hoka One One Kaha Low GTX: What its chunkiness means
If you have been fascinated with hiking shoes from Hoka One One for long enough, you should be quite familiar with their signature characteristic—a stout sole. The Kaha Low GTX is blessed with this same design, which translates to the following:
- You get comfortable hikes with lower risks of arch pain.
- Haphazard landings are safer since the chunkiness of the sole will absorb more shock than usual.
- Hiking with a light pack is possible as if you are in a pair of backpacking boots.
All that said, this kind of heel construction comes with a few caveats:
- A close-to-the-ground feel is almost next to impossible in this shoe.
- It lacking a heel brake spells trickier maneuvers on descents.
- It has two boot-type siblings: the Kaha (non-waterproof) and the Kaha GTX (waterproof).
- The Kaha series is also known as the Sky Kaha series.
