Ultralight and endlessly cushioned, HOKA midsoles offer shock absorption, comfort and support in varying degrees of thickness.
The meta-rocker is the rounded shape of the midsole of HOKA running shoes. It is designed to drive runners forward by complementing the natural gait cycle and reducing the height differential between heel and toe. It helps to make the heel-to-toe transitions quicker and smoother.
ACTIVE FOOT FRAME
The active foot frame works like a bucket seat in a racecar, it cradles the heel and places the foot securely into the midsole.
Hoka uses two unobtrusive features in their stability shoes: an Active Foot Frame and J-Frame. As mentioned above the Active Foot Frame cradles your feet in place and drops you deeper into the midsole. Beneath the footbed, the HOKA J-Frame employs a higher density foam to give medial support without the use of plastic or posts.
