Part Hovercraft/Part Hiking Boot....Gimmick or Brilliant?

By

Honestly I thought these new hiking boots by HOKA were one of those spoof products companies release on April Fools Day as a goof but the TenNine GTX’s cartoonish profile or “daring geometry” is actually a clever evolution in efficient travel through variable backcountry terrain. They call it the extended HUBBLE® heel and its designed to gently catch your foot’s impact and improve heel-to-toe transition while hiking.  When it comes right down to it, if you’re a dedicated hiker its 1000% about function over form so you won’t give a hoot that these puppies look like clown shoes if they improve your performance.  Watch the video and if you’re interested in purchasing GO HERE:
