HOKA ONE ONE Clayton Shoe Wins Runner’s World Editor’s Choice Award
GOLETA, Calif. (July 25, 2016) — HOKA ONE ONE®, a division of Deckers Brands (NYSE: DECK), has won the Editor’s Choice Award from Runner’s World Magazine for the Clayton, a performance running shoe with the perfect blend of responsiveness and cushioning for racing and training.
The Runner’s World Editor’s Choice Award recognizes an outstanding running shoe that successfully combines the highest-quality design and technology. “The Clayton continues HOKA ONE ONE’s evolution into mainstream footwear,” write the Runner’s World editors. “This shoe likes to be driven fast.” See the full review in Runner’s World’s Fall Shoe Guide in the September issue.
The Clayton continues a HOKA ONE ONE® tradition of revolutionizing lightweight cushioning. It features PRO2LITE midsole technology with a softer heel for cushioning and a firmer forefoot for propulsion, for a smooth, fast ride. The style has gained popularity among road and trail runners alike.
The Oversize Active Foot Frame provides surprising support, similar to a race car’s bucket seat. Early stage Meta-Rocker ensures a smooth and nimble heel-to-toe transition. The RMAT® outsole layer eliminates the excess weight of traditional rubber and finishes off the ride with a responsive edge.
“From design to implementation the Clayton has been an extra special shoe for all of us here at HOKA,” said Gretchen Weimer, HOKA ONE ONE Vice President of Product. “It represents the absolute best in lightweight speed and cushion and we’re honored the Runner’s World editors agree.”
The Clayton weighs 7.3 oz. (men’s size 9) and 6.3 oz. (women’s size 7), and is available at running specialty stores and online athokaoneone.com, MSRP $150.
