Updates to Hoka One One Tor Ultra Hi WP

  • The Hoke One One Tor Ultra Hi WP features a waterproof construction. It uses the eVent waterproof membrane that has the capacity to prevent water from entering the shoe especially on wet conditions. It keeps the foot drier and moisture-free for the entire run.
  • The shoe also features the unique and effective blend of two notable midsole elements, the EVA and RMAT cushioning. It gives runners maximum amount of cushioning and protection needed for an improved running performance.

Hoka One One Tor Ultra Hi WP size and fit

The shoe is available standard running shoe length. The heel and the midfoot provide a snug fit and it has a spacious forefoot. The toe box allows natural toe splay. This shoe comfortably accommodates those medium-footed runners and those with slightly wider forefoot. Hoka One One is offering the shoe in standard D width for men’s and B for women’s.


Outsole

The outer sole of the shoe utilizes the Vibram MegaGrip outsole compound that provides unmatched grip on both wet and dry surfaces. The aggressive lugs in the sole unit give added traction on varied surfaces, durability and stability on uneven surfaces.


Midsole

The midsole features the unique blend of the soft EVA cushioning and the notable RMAT midsole element. The soft EVA foam that is extended in the entire midsole is 305 softer than the traditional EVA cushioning. It delivers enough amount of cushioning and support.

The RMAT midsole is a lightweight cushioning material that delivers added cushioning for a more resilient rider and maximum impact protection.

The Active Foot Frame encourages the foot to sink into the midsole comfortably, increasing feedback and responsiveness. The Late Stage Meta-Rocker Geometry is also designed to give stability and added forefoot support when needed.


Midsole

The Hoka One One Tor Ultra Hi WP features a full bootie construction that prevents debris from entering the shoe and at the same time delivers a sock-like feel. The upper uses the nylon mesh material that delivers a durable upper coverage.

The upper features the eVent waterproof membrane that has water resistance capacity, keeping the foot drier while running on wet condition. This works perfectly with the suede leather upper that is also water-resistant. It wraps the midfoot securely for added structural integrity.

The molded collar in the upper wraps the ankle and the heel comfortably. It prevents debris from entering the shoe and at the same time it gives added support around the heel. The extended lacing provides a more customized fit and the reinforced toe cap gives added foot protection against bruising and aberration.
