Updates to the Hoka One One Mach 2

  • The design of this update remains minimal, with engineered mesh and sparing use of printed overlays gracing the upper. This lightweight configuration aims to accommodate the natural form of the foot, securing it while allowing it to move freely.
  • Underfoot cushioning is the responsibility of the PROFLY™, a thick compound that runs the entire length of the Hoka One One Mach 2. It has a soft heel and a firm forefoot for heightened impact mitigation and forward propulsion.

Get extra cushioning with the Hoka One One Mach 2 outsole

The outsole unit of the Hoka One One Mach 2 is made using rubberized foam. This generous layer is tasked with protecting the midsole from the unpleasant effects of surface exposure and wear. It also offers traction through its tread pattern and extra cushioning through its malleable construction.

Flex grooves allow the sole unit to bend in conjunction with the foot as it moves through the gait cycle. The toe-off phase is the one that benefits the most from this mechanism as it is the act that involves the most foot flexibility.

Prevent hot-spots and skin irritation with the Hoka One One Mach 2 upper

The façade of the Mach 2 is comprised of engineered mesh, which is a cloth-like material that provides a flexible and breathable coverage. A near-seamless construction prevents hot spots from forming and causing irritation to the skin.

A few printed overlays adorn the upper. They are located on the instep as eyelet reinforcements and the rear portion as brand placements. An additional purpose of these synthetic prints is to bolster the façade, preventing it from tearing apart or quickly losing structure.

The tongue and collar are padded. These parts of the façade are designed to cushion the topmost portions of the foot, preventing them from wobbling or exiting the interior chamber unexpectedly.
