HOKA introduces the Skyward X, its latest innovation in performance running shoes, designed with the daily runner in mind. This new model features an advanced carbon fiber plate system nestled between layers of specialized foams, enhancing stability and providing a smooth, dynamic ride. 

The Skyward X pairs soft PEBA foam near the foot with firmer super-critical EVA foam near the ground, offering a balance of cushioning and support. The shoe’s design is refined with a flat knit upper and external TPU heel counter, ensuring both comfort and durability. These features make the Skyward X a standout choice for runners seeking a shoe that supports both high performance and daily training.

Weighing around 260 grams for a women’s US size 8 and about 320 grams oz for a men’s US size 10, the shoe features a 48mm stack height and a 5mm drop. Available from April 25, the Skyward X is priced at $225 USD and can be purchased on HOKA’s webstore, or through the brand’s authorized retailers worldwide.
