The HOKA ONE ONE Huaka is a premium daily trainer and performance uptempo running shoe designed for a neutral or supinated foot motion.


Important Shipping Note: U.S. sales only.


Maximum cushioning? Check. Lightweight runability? Check. The HOKA ONE ONE Huaka brings you the best of both worlds, offering high mileage protection without weighing you down. A rockered geometry promotes a quick toe-off and a quick ride, and a resilient midsole provides plenty of energy return for an energetic run. Lace up the HOKA ONE ONE Huaka for racing, speedwork and daily training.

**Please note, a second pair of insoles may be included; however, due to manufacturer packaging inconsistencies, we cannot guarantee additional insoles will be included in HOKA liquidation models.**

Customer Reviews

Comments: My Hoka Huaka sneakers are amazing!!! The lightest shoe, very supportive, like walking on air:)
From: Charisse, Pittsfield, MA, USA. April 18th 2016

Comments: Let me start off by saying I love my Hoka Stinson's, Kailua Tarmac's and Kailua Trail's, and will run in no other shoe. These newer Hoka's were a disappointment. Although I like the lighter weight shoe, it is more narrow than my other Hoka's which causes the outside of the shoe to rub on my small toes, causing irritation. I do not have wide feet. I can't run in these but just use them for everyday use, like going to the store. These are even uncomfortable for that purpose and I get a pain on the outside of my feet after walking for a few minutes. It's like my feet hang over the sole of the shoe.
From: Kim, Woodland Park, CO, USA. March 10th 2016

Comments: I purchased this show and I really enjoyed them thus far. The heel dip low but I had some heel inserts that made the shoe wear perfect. I tend to get my Huaka every time I head out the door. So I have purchased a second pair and will recommend them to my friends. My job consist of constant standing and walking great show and look great.
From: Chanel, Cleveland, Tn Bradley. January 2nd 2016

Comments: They run a little large. But I do like them for running. I usually only run like 6 miles. I also purchased them at a discounted price so I'm very satisfied.
From: Cindy, TX, USA. January 1st 2016

Comments: Horrible shoe, like running with a brick strapped to my foot. Ran twice, 4 miles each, everything hurt. I usually run 20 miles a week, Saucony Viratta (zero drop minimal). Trying to find a replacement shoe as the Viratta is discontinued
From: NIcole, Napa, CA, USA. November 10th 2015

Comments: LOVE these shoes!!!! Ran 21 miles in them last weekend, a track workout this week, 22 miles today. Perfect.
From: Jana, CA, USA. October 31st 2015

Comments: I love the Huaka. These shoes are very light I keep them on all day and my feet feel wonderful The laces took some getting use to and my next pair will be a size smaller. I'm impressed and did not pay the hefty $150.00 I got them on sale for $60.00. I will make Hoka One One my new running shoe of choice..
From: Phyliss Wright, Canton, TX, USA. July 12th 2015

Comments: I have been a religious Brooks Glycerin wearer for about 4 years. However, it seems that as each year progresses, my body aches do too. I have heard firsthand great things about the Hoka, and tried this model for a spin. Played with my socks and lacing then took them out. First 4 mile run, they felt great. Great cushioning, great response, but I came back with a slight blister on my toe. (Never ever ever had blisters before.) Next run was 19 miles. I noticed new fatigue in my calves and arch, which I contribute to the reduced Heel/Toe offset. But my poor, poor toe. Now, back to a short, quick 3 mile run and by the end of it, I am pretty sure my toenail is toast, my calves were burning and the shoes were a bad call. In looking at the wear of the outsole, I am surprised about how many miles they look like they have on them vs the actual minimal miles on them. They look tore up! These shoes are not for me, my foot, and especially my toe. The cushioning is quite inc redible, but overall, I think the Glycerin at the same price point offer a much better fit and longer wear.
From: Jill, Fort Collins, CO, USA. April 15th 2015

Comments: Took these out for my first run today and they were nothing short of amazing! I never write reviews for anything, so you know these are good. I run six days a week and have trained for several marathons over the last couple of years. I have chronic plantar fasciitis and am used to tight, sore feet especially after a run. I was impressed at how fresh my feet felt after today's tempo run. Cannot recommend these highly enough. I do not use the zip tie laces--I pulled those out immediately and laced up with the regular shoelaces included in the box. Also included is an ortholite insole which improves upon the already amazing cushioning in these shoes. I did order my regular size and they are a little long in the toes, but because the shoe runs narrow and I am using the extra insole, it seems to be okay. My foot does not slide around while I run.
From: Lindsey, AZ, USA. March 26th 2015

Comments: I love these shoes, but the disadvantage is that the heels wear out after a few miles. I am a heel striker and so that is maybe why they are doing that. My first pair were worn down considerable after 38 miles. I have been able to run 43 miles with less wear, but they are worn down. Not sure how they can be manufactured differently and not take away from the comfort and light weight ride.
From: Anonymous. March 24th 2015

Comments: I have run in these shoes about 5 times now - distances from 3 miles to 15 miles. I wasn't sure about Hokas but had read some good reviews and decided to check them out. I ordered a pair of the Cliftons and the Huaka. The Cliftons are more "cushiony" but a little squishy for me. I prefer a firmer sole and the Huaka was definitely a more responsive feeling shoe. I was worried that Hokas was feel unstable due to their height but this a isn't the case and the Huaka has a low drop which I love. Thus far I am very pleased! They have a very smooth ride and are very light for them size of the shoe. I have a narrow fit and I wish the show ran a bit more narrow but, on the whole, this has not been an issue. They just feel good for me when I run and I think they will be "my shoe" for a while. A fe things to note, the quick/speed laces take a little getting used to. Not sure if I will keep them in but thus far they have gotten the job done and I never have to deal with lace s that come untied. HOWEVER, as I mentioned, I have a narrw foot so I have to pull the speed laces fairly tight. As the tongue is not heavily padded (more a slender piece of foam like cloth) I can feel the speed laces on the top of my foot towards the end of longer runs. I am sure some runners love the less padded tongue but I wouldn't mind future versions with a more padded tongue. Overall, not a big deal but just something to be mindful of. I should say the shoes come with laces and you can cut off the speed laces and use the second pair of regular laces. Thus far, the speed laces haven't been that troublesome so I have kept them in. They are expensive which is a bummer. I always feel foolish buying shoes much over $100. For someone who does not want to pay the Hoka price-tag, check out the Skechers Ultras which were great but might be slightly more cushioned/squishy.
