Hoka One One Mafate 3 trail run shoe

Euro brand crafts 'Ultimate Protection' trail shoe

Mafate 3

Goodbye barefoot, hello oversized, is the news we’re hearing when it comes to run shoe trends. And leading the explosion is the Euro brand Hoka One One.  


The brand last featured in 220 Triathlon magazine in an upbeat ‘Behind the Science’ review last summer, and now returns with the updated Mafate 3; the shoe that launched Hoka in 2010.

Aimed at those of you hitting the trails, the Mafate 3 falls into Hoka’s ‘Ultimate Protection’ category of run shoes.  

The midsole is constructed with over twice the volume of EVA cushioning as standard run shoes, to absorb on impact and nullify any bumps and jagged edges. 

Better grip, fit and lacing are reported improvements, with our testers set to review in early 2014.
