If you’re at all familiar with HOKA’s claim to fame, you know it’s all in the sole. They have perfected the depth and responsiveness of their cushioned midsole to cater to the adventurous and casual alike.
7月推出HOKAAnacapa will target a more versatile audience that gets after various distance hikes in all weather. The Anacapa will also hit a sustainability mark for HOKA, with Leather Working Group-certified leather, recycled polyester, and 50% soy-based sock liner.
Fit and Feel
Pulling on the Anacapas, I have to say these fit like a glove — or a sock, to be more precise. I have to give a huge nod to the Achilles-cradling pull-tab integrated into the sock liner — it really works! Having this one feature gives you an almost custom fit and allows the boot to move with you.
My partner had a pair of the women’s mid version and said she never felt more locked into a boot before, especially one this light. My low versions came in at 14 ounces and her mids came in at 13.5 ounces.
It feels like a perfect balance of ruggedness and usability, even though I felt the weight of these boots more than with the more plush offerings. Although still super comfortable, the absence of the more plushy bounce is definitely absorbed by your legs doing some of that rebound work.
Combined, these features noticeably assist in relieving some foot fatigue through incredible weight distribution, balance, and stability.
As I was hiking, I couldn’t help but think this was the best of all the things that make HOKA work: light weight, comfort, function, and assist. The extended heel that always urges your gait forward, in conjunction with the slightly stiffer but still malleable midsole, almost makes it feel like there’s a motor down there somewhere.
With the more aggressive use that these will undoubtedly warrant, you can rest assured the leather and mesh outer will hold their own against rock rash and brush. If you ask me, this is the official hiking boot we’ve been waiting forHOKAto create.
