In our 5 Minute Focus this week we talk to Craig Brain of Allsports Distribution about the HOKA ONE ONE Maximalist Running Shoe. HOKA ONE ONE shoes are based on the concept of oversized constructs in which a larger 'sweet-spot' is utilized to aid performance. Hoka has engineered a unique performance midsole geometry that features a higher volume, softer density, and greater rebounding foam than standard running shoes.
