HOKA just released a set of weather-ready stompers that couldn’t have come at a better time. Considering the weather is probably cold wherever you are right now, it’s only suitable for the brand to tack GORE-TEX footwear fabric onto its latest hiking shoe.
The Trail Code GTX is optimized for the day hiker, boasting a lightweight feel ideal for all-day wearability and maximum cushioning. The latter is courtesy of the shoemaker’s innovative new foam material working alongside a compression-molded EVA midsole. Additionally, the shoe boasts HOKA’s proprietary HUBBLE heel tech and Swallowtail heel design, promoting smooth transitions throughout the foot, even on unpredictable terrain.
And while comfortability is a crucial factor in hiking shoes, weatherized properties are essential to consider through the winter. Luckily, the new silhouette sits atop a Vibram Megagrip sole with 5mm lugs and boasts a GORE-TEX fabric composition, both of which are bound to prove themselves in a long day on the trails. Above all else, it is made using recycled textiles, deeming it a sustainable option. Additionally, the Trail Code’s ripstop upper is composed of fully-recycled materials, as HOKA aims to maximize longevity for your shoes and the planet. Extra details throughout the shoe include a set of quick-lace metal top hooks and a pull-tab at the heel for easy on-and-off access.
