Designed to offer the lightweight comfort of running footwear with the protection and support of a hiking boot, these new hiking styles empower all adventurers to explore their world and get off the grid.
GOLETA, Calif., July 1, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- HOKA ONE ONE®, a division of Deckers Brands (NYSE: DECK), announces the launch of the Anacapa Mid and Low GTX, an all-new hiking silhouette with both a mid- and low-top offering, available for purchase today.
Feels Like a Shoe, Wanders Like a Boot
The Anacapa Mid and Low GTX are an athlete's gateway to the great outdoors. Designed as a light hiker to encourage exploration near and far, the Anacapa Mid GTX provides ankle support for longer treks, while the Anacapa Low GTX serves as an ultimate lightweight exploration vehicle, encouraging adventure in settings from the city streets to the neighborhood park and beyond. Together, the Anacapa Mid and Low GTX aim to make the outdoors accessible and fun.
At just 16.0 ounces and 14.0 ounces (men's size 9), and 14.0 ounces and 12.0 ounces (women's size 7), respectively, the Anacapa Mid and Low GTX are extraordinarily light for fully-outfitted hikers. Designed to provide the lightweight comfort and dynamic mobility associated with performance running and fitness footwear, the Anacapa franchise aims to bring topflight hiking technology to a new consumer who may have previously viewed hiking and the outdoors as gear prohibitive.
"The Anacapa Mid and Low GTX aim to dispel the myth that effective hiking footwear needs to be stiff and heavy, or that it requires a long, uncomfortable break in period," said Gretchen Weimer, Vice President of Product at HOKA ONE ONE. "They're lightweight, dynamic, and capable of a broad range of outdoor activities. In short: they're fun, and they bring ultimate comfort and performance to everyday explorations."
Part Light Hiker, Part Escape Hatch
Both the Anacapa Mid and Low GTX feature the enhanced cushioning and smooth ride unique to HOKA footwear, with a compression-molded EVA midsole, extended heel geometry designed to create a gentler impact, and a late stage Meta-Rocker designed for smoother transitions and a stable ride through each step. Featuring a Vibram® Megagrip outsole designed for maximal traction on tricky terrain, both models are also made with recycled materials, including Leather Working Group Gold Certified waterproof nubuck leather on the upper; recycled polyester materials in the collar, mesh and laces; a molded polyurethane sockliner derived from 50% soybean oil; and GORE-TEX fabric with leaf bootie, which is made with 45% recycled content by weight.
"Make no mistake: the Anacapa Mid and Low GTX are performance-first hiking shoes. But we are increasingly capable of using recycled materials in our products without reducing the capabilities our consumers expect from their outdoor footwear," said Weimer. "The Anacapa franchise is designed to bring this peak performance and technology to all adventurers, and to provide them an 'escape hatch' into nature, whether they are exploring a local park on the weekend or embarking on a multi-day backpacking trip."
The Anacapa is available for purchase today at hokaoneone.com and at select HOKA retailers worldwide. MSRP $170 (Mid) and $155 (Low).
