Hoka was founded on a principle that traditional thinking is less effective than disruptive thinking. The Evo Jawz is a hybrid cross between a track spike and a trail racer, making it perfect for the gnarliest cross country mud fest. The upper is lightweight closed mesh with welded overlays, somewhat formulaically routine, but effective in its execution.
The midsole is a thin wedge of compression molded EVA, for a touch of cushioning - whether on-road, way, way offroad, or in-between. The outersole is an aggressively lugged, articulated Vibram® rubber, for a blend of conforming cushion and traction, which works surprisingly well on a variety of surfaces, though especially natural surfaces. If you have more than one racer in your quiver, the Evo Jawz should be one of them.
