Picture this: You just finished a grueling Saturday morning long run at your local CRC. The dreaded humidity has returned and your socks and shoes are a bit squishy with sweat. You have to walk to your car and return home to prop your legs up and recover for the rest of the day. Instead of keeping those shoes on for your transit home, why not slip on a pair of fresh, cool, cushioned and comfortable Ora Recovery Slides?
The Ora is a slip-on sandal, which means no flip-flopping around on your foot. They use the famous Hoka oversized midsole and Meta-Rocker technology so your feet are guaranteed to thank you.
Another common situation: It is Sunday and you're all recovered from the long run the previous day. You decide to hit the town for some shopping, or you want to hit the trails and hike to get some active recovery. In the back of your mind, you still really really love the HOKA ONE ONE cushion but don't want to wear a full shoe because you want to keep your foot a bit more cool. Wouldn't it be grand if Hoka made a sandal to wear around all summer on your more adventurous days? If you answered, "Yes!" then you might be interested in the Tor Trafa!
This sandal uses Hoka's cushioned foam as well as their RMAT material midsole to provide cushion and support while being paired with great traction on the bottom to ensure you can handle a variety of terrain. The Tor Trafa features a quick lace system to ensure optimal fit and allow for easy, quick-on and quick-off transition as well as a neoprene liner so the Trafa can be worn with or without socks.
You can find both the Ora Recovery Slide and Tor Trafa online or at your nearest CRC. And now through June 3, you can earn FREE race entry to the Columbus 10K by purchasing any HOKA ONE ONE shoe at CRC. I can't think of a better way to start the summer.
