Updates to Hoka One One Arahi 3

  • The Hoka One One Arahi 3 features a new upper design. It uses a breathable engineered mesh that keeps the foot cool and dry. The mesh upper also aims to provide the foot a lightweight and comfortable wrap.
  • This stability running shoe continues to provide overpronators with unique running experience by using the same midsole technology, but it has been refined to address issues from the past. The heel rocker in the midsole of the Hoka Arahi 3 has also been improved for a smoother ride.
  • Hoka also updated the outsole design of the Arahi 3 to provide runners with improved flexibility, durability and stability.

Outsole

In the outsole of the Hoka One One Arahi 3 is the zonal rubber placement which is specifically placed on high-wear areas for durability. The rubber material is made from lightweight and sturdy materials. It also provides added traction without compromising flexibility.

Midsole

As a reliable running shoe for overpronators, the Arahi 3 makes use of the Dynamic Stability with EVA J-Frame technology. It offers firmer cushioning with lightweight support. The midsole has been designed to encourage the foot to move naturally.

An early-stage meta-rocker has been installed in the midsole to promote an efficient heel-to-toe transition for a smoother ride.

Along with the meta-rocker are the flat-waisted geometry for a more stable platform and additional support in the forefoot.

Upper

In the upper of the Hoka One One Arahi 3 is an open engineered mesh which provides lightweight and breathable foot coverage. There are perforations in the mesh to promote excellent airflow, keeping the foot cool and dry.

The shoe has a padded tongue and collar that delivers added comfort and further enhance the overall fit and lockdown. There is also a heel pull tab to easily wear and remove the shoe.
