Introducing the new Hoka One One Mach 4 – this is a neutral, responsive, lightweight cushioned running shoe that feels great. We take a look at what’s changed from the Mach 3 and how the Mach 4 compares to other Hoka running shoes we stock at The Sports Room…

 

 

HOKA MACH 4 – TRAIN TO FLY EVERYDAY

In its fourth edition, the Mach 4 takes its biggest leap forward, built on themes inspired by the Rocket X and Carbon X. Designed for logging long miles, this everyday trainer delivers a lively ride and energetic underfoot feel that is unquestionably HOKA. Softer and bouncier than the previous iteration, the Mach 4 employs a harmonious blend of foams — merging an incredibly soft, lightweight foam on top with rubberised foam directly beneath. This up-tempo shoe has been created with a new pull tab, revamped upper made from heat pressed TPU embroidered yarns, and a refined collar shape that alleviates pressure on the Achilles. Light, fast and unquestionably responsive, the Mach 4 delivers a daily dose of speed.
