Full description of Hoka One One Unisex Rocket X
HOKA ONE ONE has released a new and lightning-fast Carbon running shoe, which will give you plenty of speed and tempo on your runs, the HOKA ONE ONE ROCKET X. It is the most energetic, responsive, and lightest running shoe from HOKA. Just like the HOKA ONE ONE CARBON X, it has a carbon plate to give you an even greater toe-off for every stride. To this end, the Meta Rocker also helps to propel you forward. So, if you thought the Carbon X was fast, you now have an even faster edition from HOKA.

The ROCKET X has an extremely lightweight and breathable mesh upper, which feels fantastic on the foot. While being lightweight, it also delivers a great degree of safety by locking in your foot, so the foot does not endure any unforeseen twists. The heel cap is firm. The shoe tongue is fixed with two elastic bands on each side, which makes for a great fit over the instep.
HOKA has always worked with a lightweight midsole material, but this time the material is even lighter, akin to the one used in the HOKA ONE ONE CLIFTON EDGE, which makes this shoe super responsive and very lightweight. You still get a soft feeling. The Metarocker in the midsole will deliver a great toe-off and you get a feeling of being catapulted off the ground. This experience is made even greater by the 1mm thick Carbon plate in the midsole for more rigidness.
There is a rubber coating divided into zones. In other words, in order to cut down on the weight, the rubber has strategically been placed in the areas that are more prone to wear and tear. No excess weight, the only focus is on speed!
