Boasting a seemingly contradictory combination of maximum cushioning and minimal weight, the Women’s Hoka Arahi 5 delivers a soft, smooth alternative to traditional support shoes. A brand-new shoe from top to bottom, the Arahi 5 was envisioned with a laser focus on fit. Designed with structured, engineered mesh at the heel for midfoot security and breathable, open mesh at the forefoot, the new upper is grounded in an extremely resilient, ultralight foam. Outfitted with an intuitive pull tab for easy on-and-off, this daily runner offers a refined collar shape that alleviates pressure on the Achilles. Get set for stability without limits.
- Engineered mesh delivers breathable comfort
- Early stage Meta-Rocker provides a smooth ride

Still not sure?
Am I buying the right shoe?
The Women’s Hoka Arahi 5 is a road shoe designed to allow you to bounce off hard surfaces rather than for grip. This shoe is suitable for everyday training and racing.
This is a cushioned, stability shoe which is most suitable for runners who overpronate. Contact us for advice if you are unsure which type of shoe you need. Alternatively you can read our coaching blog.
New to running? We highly recommend the NHS Couch to 5k programme for anyone who has is just starting out.
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.
