Hoka One One Toa GTX: Who is it for?
With its spring-in-your-step construction and three-season protection, the Hoka One One Toa GTX is by and large for those who are always on the go. That said, if we dig into it a little deeper, this brawny-yet-nimble piece has facets that make it a highly viable shoe for the following adventurers:
For those needing extra support. The cratered design of the hiker’s midsole and the raised borders of its nappy footbed translate to steadier strides over uneven terrain. In other words, messing up your gait and posture just might be a thing of the past in this bad boy.
For the maneuver creative. With its outsole sporting multi-directional lugs, freedom of movement with fewer risks of slipping is yours in the Toa GTX. There are also lugs jutting out slightly on its sides, making lateral (sideways) traversals relatively easier.
For peeps desperate for longevity underfoot. While most hiking shoes come with EVA (ethylene-vinyl acetate) midsoles, the Hoka One One Toa GTX has a rubberized one. Both kinds provide sufficient cushioning and support; however, the featured shoe’s midsole may last longer, for the sole reason that it is rubber.
