If you’re running long and running fast, chances are you’re racing a marathon. HOKA has a shoe for that! The HOKA ONE ONE Tracer is built to be both a trainer and a racer, but much like the name itself, the “Tracer” is mostly “racer”.
When you’re running a race, you need your shoe to have a snug fit, and the Tracer has that on lock. With a narrow, close-to-foot fit, your shoe will stay put as you turn corners and make moves on the run.
What makes the Tracer different from other marathon racing shoes? When we compare them to shoes like the New Balance 1400 and adidas Adios (which both have a 10mm heel-toe offset), the Tracer stands out with a 4mm offset. This results in the Tracer having a thicker forefoot, meaning more forefoot cushioning material for its low weight. And when you’re running fast, you tend to be more forward on your foot, so the added padding is welcomed.
