One of the most energetic shoes HOKA has launched to date, the Men’s Hoka Rocket X is an incredibly lightweight, insanely responsive racer geared for elite athletes. The lightest racing flat in the HOKA lineup, this all-speed shoe is engineered to launch off the line. Primed for shorter distances, the Rocket X utilises the same responsive carbon fiber plate as the Carbon X, delivering a fast, efficient and propulsive ride. Built for race day, this speed dagger employs the lightest foam in HOKA history, a soft midsole carrier, breathable mesh upper and lightweight, rubberized foam outsole that reduces weight. Speed weaponry at its best, adrenaline will be pumping when lacing up this impossibly fast race flat

- 1mm carbon fiber plate delivers a smooth transition through the gait cycle

Am I buying the right shoe?
The Men’s Hoka Rocket X features a symmetrical bed of cushion without additional prescriptive technologies. Designed to provide the support you want and nothing you don’t. The shoe also features a low-profile cushion bed that keeps your foot closer to the ground, and utilizes a firmer material designed to provide an efficient push-off.
This is a cushioned, neutral shoe making it most suitable for runners with neutral pronation or supinators. Contact us for advice if you are unsure which type of shoe you need. Alternatively you can read our coaching blog
What else might I need?
Remember running performance socks are just as crucial as a performance shoe. We recommend fuelling after 60 minutes of exercise, check out our range of nutrition for those longer training runs. We carry a range of salt supplements for those training for endurance events and that all important chafing gel.
