Review: The Hoka One One Kailua Tarmac Running Shoe

Featured Member Post


Height: 21mm forefoot height/26mm heel height/5mm drop. Similar to other Hokas.

Weight: The Kailua Tarmac is exactly 9oz in my size (US women's 9.5), with a comparatively svelte structure compared to other Hoka models.

Upper: An extremely breathable construction provides a secure fit. The tongue is a thin, suede-like material with a bit of mesh cushion on the inside. And it's a gusseted tongue, meaning that it's attached at the sides to the rest of the shoe.

Laces: The one-pull speed laces are extremely effective, as they kind of remind me of drawstrings, and I think drawstrings are hot. Since I can’t pull it off in a top (the curse of the big boobs), and I’m not too sure about draw string pants for women my age, the shoes have it.
