 RMAT in the Hoka One One Mach outsole

The RMAT® is an outsole material made from a blend of injection-molded rubber and ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA). This combination results in a compound that is elastic and brings a higher-level rebound for improved running performance. The rubber-and-foam mixture also gives the outsole a fantastic balance of durability and traction that is perfect for the roads.

Responsive rides with the Hoka One One Mach midsole

Thanks to the PROFLY™ material, the midsole of the Hoka One One Mach is able to offer a snappy and responsive ride, while also providing calculated cushioning in specific areas: softer in the heel for a protected landing, and firmer in the forefoot for enhanced propulsion.

The midsole is constructed following a unique geometry called the Meta-Rocker. This shape means the midsole has a low stack height and a slightly elevated forefoot that forms a fulcrum, like a rocking chair. With this structure, the runner’s natural foot motion and most efficient gait cycle are promoted.

Moreover, the Meta-Rocker has an early-stage transition zone, which is behind the metatarsal heads. What this means is that the heel-to-toe transition is smoother and quicker.

Breathable with a luxurious feel in the Hoka One One Mach

The Mach’s lightweight, engineered mesh permits a comfortable and contoured fit while permitting maximum-level breathability for a luxurious feel. The vamp and midfoot areas employ an open-knit pattern as airflow is essential in these parts. Conversely, the arch and heel have a close-knit layout to enable support and structure for a problem-free ride.

Meanwhile, the interior of the shoe features a no-sew construction, which allows a seamless and irritation-free fit and sensation. Such a form reduces the chances of blistering and chafing.
