HOKA ONE ONE is a manufacturer of specialized running shoes, popular especially among long-distance runners. Among them, it is one of the fastest-growing sales brands in the world. However, it is also valued among amateurs, just starting their running adventure. The hallmark of the footwear is the unusual construction, associated with the use of an extremely thick foam sole, which translates into a maximum degree of cushioning. Other typical Hoka One One features include a boat-shaped design, low foot placement in the shoe’s frame, minimal weight and rich colorways. The brand was established in France in 2009 and since then has been successively conquering new markets. From season to season, the manufacturer successively improves the most popular models, as well as introduces new proposals. The key models are the trail-oriented Speedgoat 5 (also available in a GTX version), the urban Clifton 8 and the Challenger ATR 6, which combines features of both of them. Since the spring of 2016, Hoka One One has been available in Poland, and its exclusive distributor for Poland is RAVEN, a company based in Krakow.
