The HOKA ONE ONE Evo Mafate 2 is back with an enhanced upper to complement its signature cushioning and aggressive outsole.
From the bottom up, the Evo Mafate starts off strong with an aggressive 5mm Vibram MegaGrip rubber outsole that maintains traction when the situation gets slippery.
Nestled above the outsole sits an R-BOUND midsole which is a lighter version of the responsive and durable R-MAT material found on the original Mafate. Paired with a softer EVA top layer, the EVO Mafate delivers a stripped-down feel with plenty of protection for ultra-marathon distances.
Finally, the upper continues to consist of the extremely durable, lightweight, and secure MATRYX material that is reinforced with Kevlar. However, in this latest version, the MATRYX was tweaked and a stretchy lycra strip was added to the forefoot to improve comfort and flexibility.

Staff Fit Comments: "The Hoka Evo Mafate 2 is a great lighter weight trail shoe with a racing fit. It has a similar stackheight and sizing to the Hoka Speedgoat with a tighter fitting upper. It has an more responsive feel compared to other Hoka shoes and large sticky lugs that rival any trail shoe on the market for the best all-round traction." ~Scott
