Hoka One One Tracer 2 $130

HOKA ONE ONE’s Tracer reaches round 2 with a parade - of fast times, thanks to the Northern Arizona Elite’s performances in the shoe. The traditional stack height has made the shoe a versatile racing option for many, especially those looking for a shoe to handle their 10k to marathon duties.

The upper is an engineered mesh, closed over the bulk of the shoe, with breathable, vented mesh over the toes and lateral heel. 3D printed overlays offer support and shape, in concert with fused material at the toe and a traditional heel counter. The two density Pro2Lite midsole continues unaltered, its combination of firm/bouncy performance something a single density foam couldn’t duplicate. Likewise, the thin, tough, outersole carries over to keep things light. The Tracer 2 is sleek but roomy shoe for fast running and racing.

Testers: “A HOKA that fits close, feels low and fast, but still protects. I like them for long races and tempo runs.”
