HOKA’s Sustainably-Made Hiking Boot Still Has EVA Foam & GTX Waterproofing

Although HOKA ONE ONE was founded as a running shoe specialist first and foremost, it’s since applied its signature plush cushioning within hiking as well. The move has resulted in some pretty innovative boots, with the Tennine, the Toa, and the Kaha all challenging the status quo by way of some groundbreaking midsole geometry or impossibly comfortable ride. Even still, it’s HOKA’s latest hiker that should prove its most revolutionary.

Meet the Anacapa Mid GORE-TEX, the French footwear brand’s first hiking boot to be designed with responsible manufacturing in mind. For instance, up top, it’s made with Leather Working Group-certified waterproof nubuck as well as some upcycled polyester in the collar, laces, and mesh lining. Not only that, but the GORE-TEX fabric also uses repurposed textiles and the sock liner is crafted from 50% soybean oil. When you consider that you’re still getting HOKA’s usual mix of a soft EVA midsole, an extended heel, and a rockered design, the result is a boot that’s as eco-conscious as it is hiking-capable. You can buy the Anacapa Mid GORE-TEX now for $170.

Purchase: $170
