Hoka Cavu $110
Hoka One One is known for their highly cushioned shoes, less so for a tuned ride, but the Cavu is their latest model to reside in this arena. The upper is engineered mesh, mostly closed with strategically placed openings over the toes, lateral saddle, and most of the medial side. The tall midsole features foam which is slightly firmer in the forefoot than the heel, allowing a cushier feel on touchdown and a livelier feel on toe-off, which is quite an effective sensation. The outersole features RMAT under the toes and in the heel, while the midfoot is toughened foam. The full contact geometry makes the shoe very stable and distributes the wear evenly. The versatility, light weight, and reasonable price make the Cavu an effective and affordable high-mileage/recovery running shoe.
Testers: “Well cushioned as expected, even gives a little extra at toe-off. Good fit with a really smooth interior. Cushy enough for recovery runs, but light and snappy enough for daily runs.“
