Clifton 9 GORE-TEX – 1141470

Clifton 9 GORE-TEX - 1141470

Kicking it off with the Clifton 9 GORE-TEX, it doesn’t get much slicker than this. Arriving as an iteration of the OG Clifton model released in 2014, the 9 GORE-TEX does exactly what it says on the tin. Embedded with waterproof technology, this shoe is your best friend in rainy weather conditions. The Clifton 9 boasts 360-degree reflectivity as well as a closed mesh composition, giving you a streamlined look that feels great. Designed with runners and walkers in mind, we can assure you that this is a solid choice.

Project Clifton – 1127924

Flaunting a neutral palette of grey, navy and beige, the Project Clifton goes above the category of just ‘performance sneakers’. The influence of street style is particularly apparent within the shoe’s aesthetic. It’s all in the details. Raised detailing sits atop a ripstop mesh base, ensuring seamless style on and off the track. An Aquaguard® Zip keeps things simple for on-the-go ventures, after all, who has time for laces these days? To round things off, an EVA foam midsole and high-abrasion rubber outsole keeps things in check, so you can take confidence in your step. 

Anacapa 2 Mid GORE-TEX – 1141633

Anacapa 2 Mid GORE-TEX - 1141633

Bulky, durable and sustainable – the Anacapa 2 Mid GORE-TEX is a shoe for the future. Landing as a reimagining of the Anacapa Mid GORE-TEX, this iteration has an unwavering focus surrounding environmental impact. As a model intended for hiking, a waterproof nubuck leather feels like an appropriate material to form the exterior. Sustainability occurs in every corner of the Anacapa 2, from a fully recycled polyester collar, tongue lining and laces to a 50% Soybean-based sockliner. If there’s anything a hiking sneaker should be, then it’s this.

Skyline-Float X – 1141610

Skyline-Float X - 1141610

“Fast on the trail. Smooth on the street” is how HOKA describes the Skyline-Float X. And we couldn’t say it better ourselves, adorned with responsive cushioning and a SwallowTail™ heel. Vibram® XS trek ensures enhanced traction even when terrain feels bumpy, so you can count on the Skyline-Float X to have your back ( – or feet should we say!). Incorporating a variety of plant-based elements throughout the construction, this model performs flawlessly with maximum efficiency. 

Anacapa 2 Low GORE-TEX – 1142830

Anacapa 2 Low GORE-TEX - 1142830

Expressing a vibrant purple hue throughout the outer, the Anacapa 2 Low GORE-TEX arrives as a low-top iteration of the Anacapa 2 Mid. Featuring the same crisp detailing and sustainable composition as its Mid counterpart, this model is for the hikers that aren’t afraid to sport a pop of colour on their adventures. 

Ora Recovery Slide – 1126850

Long, strenuous days of physical activity can be challenging at the best of times. Once we’ve put our sneakers on the rack, it’s important to give our feet some love. This is where the Ora Recovery Slide comes in – it’s literally in the name. Geared up with a cushioned layer of EVA foam as well as a resilient outsole, these aren’t just any ordinary slides. If that wasn’t enough, strategic groove placement ensures maximum comfort and traction. Your feet can thank us later!

These HOKA sneakers do just that and more, delivering a plethora of advanced technology that you’ll need on your travels. Elements like the moulded PU sockliner and abrasion resistant toe cap allow you to do more, whilst keeping your feet at ease.
