FAQ’s & Reviews

How long will the shoe last?

On average Hoka claim their cushioning will last approx. 400 miles. The life of the shoe varies from user to user. 

How does the Carbon X2 differ from the previous versions?

The Carbon X2 seems to fit a bit wider in comparison to the Carbon X. 

Is this shoe just for racing? 

No, it's not! Surprisingly the Carbon X2 is a very stable shoe with quite a bit more structure to the upper making it suited for racing and everyday training. 

What distances can I race with the shoe?

Most likely any, however if someone is really concerned about weight the shoe is a bit on the heavy side and something such as the Saucony Endorphin Pro may be more suited.
