With the updated Elevon 2, HOKA ONE ONE aims to take their speedy short- to mid-range shoe and add in a few features to make it more forgiving on shorter recovery runs. An example of that is the extended heel to help smoothly transition you from strike through to toe-off. You'll be grateful for this feature when you're in recovery mode or taking it easy. You'll also find that the heel has more plushness to it than the forefoot, making it an ideal shoe for both speedwork and slow trots. To tie it all together, the molded upper delivers natural comfort.
