In 11 Months, athletes wearing the Hoka OneOne Mafate Trail Running Shoe have garnered 17 top three finishes in some of the world's most famous trail races in Europe and the United States. The Stealth Waterproof Boot was created for athletes seeking higher ankle protection on the most rugged of mountain trails, but this boot also works very well for light hiking as well for those seeking the outstanding fit, cushioning, and support from the Mafate edition. The Stealth has been enhanced with a slightly higher toebox (more volume) for an improved forefoot fit. How it Works: Using a lower ramp angle (4 mm) and a rocker shaped, feather-weight midsole, the Hoka Mafate reproduces the conditions a barefoot runner experiences when running on grass or sand. The oversized midsole will absorb any hard obstacle your foot may encounter, and once compressed, the feather-weight EVA midsole springs back under your forefoot for increased acceleration. With 50% more surface area in contact with the ground, and a midsole that allows the foot to recess into it by almost one inch, the shoe provides protection, stability, and pronation control unmatched in stability running shoes.
