An all-new premium stability shoe, the GAVIOTA features superior cushioning along with new HOKA ONE ONE J-Frame™ technology. The HOKA J-Frame™ delivers support and protection while guiding your foot without the use of rigid and unforgiving materials. Enhanced by our proprietary EVA/Rubber blend RMAT - which lends added durability to high wear areas - this is an ideal shoe for the runner who wants to shake off the constrictions of traditional support shoes.
HOKA are a unique shoe brand and their specialism is providing more cushioning than any other shoe manufacturer (up to 3 times more). The shoes are ideal for marathon running, ultra distance and general high mileage training. They are also popular with heavier runners and those who suffer recurring injuries caused by impact. The stack height is large due to the volume of cushioning provided, this makes the shoe looks extremely bulky and a little äóÖoddäó». Due to their excessive size, many people think they will also be heavy, but their looks are deceptive. The Conquest weighs in at 330g, which is not bad for such a beast. The conquest has a different mid-sole than the Stinson Lite which makes it a little more responsive rather than just being äóÖsoftäó». The drop on the HOKA Conquest is 4mm, which promotes forefoot running and all HOKA shoes have a äóÖrocker systemäó» which reduces heel impact and encourage a heel to toe rolling action. Pretty much all HOKA are neutral shoes, so thereäó»s no real support option. Try the Stinson Lite for similar shoes in the range.Œæ - See more at: http://www.theendurancestore.com/proddetail.php?prod=hokaconquestwomens#sthash.tulqFaK7.dpuf
