The most brightly feature of HOKA ONE ONE is the thick outsole. The excellent cushion is favored by many cross-country enthusiasts.

Apperance: 8.0 scores
The appearance of HOKA ONE ONE EVO Rehi is special. The most special feature of this sneaker is still the thick outsole. It uses arc-shaped outsole. The integrated type vamp uses MATRYX technology. It’s very durable. And it doesn’t have anything to protect the shoe head to reduce the weight. But the color of outsole is still gradient ramp. The shoe body is blue, the shoe laces are yellow and the outsole is gradient ramp.

HOKA ONE ONE EVO Rehi continues the lightweight advantage of HOKA ONE ONE. The unit weight is only 180g. It’s lighter than most of racing shoes. Although it’s the thinnest outsole of HOKA ONE ONE (the height of heelpiece is only 17cm), but we can feel the feedback of obvious resilience.
The MATRYX technology improves the hardness of vamp and the air permeability. It’s very comfortable when running. It also fit well with the foot. It’s very suitable to “Greek” foot type.
Support: 6.9 scores
The disadvantage of lightweight vamp is the support and protection. As the increasing support will add the extra weight. So this sneaker is unsuitable to flatfoot, it may cause some unnecessary damage.
The shoe model of EVO Rehi is wide. As the vamp is in lack of support and protection, you need to be careful and not be knocked down by stumbling blocks to avoid being hurt.
Cushion: 7.1 scores
HOKA ONE ONE has always been favored by its super cushion. But the cushion of HOKA ONE ONE EVO Rehi is not the same. It’s stiff. The insole uses ProFly material. Although it has the cushion effect, but it’s mainly for increasing the resilience. It’s not suitable for heavy weight, as it may have impact force to the knees.
Durability: 6.4 scores
I think about Clayton after seeing the outsole of EVO Rehi. The outsole of these two pair of shoes are totally same. The hollow out grains design reduce the whole weight. But the material is soft, and it doesn’t have wear-resisting rubber, so the working life of this sneaker is worrying.
And there is not protection on the vamp, it’s easy to be scratched.
General Comment: 7.6 scores
As the American professional running shoes brand, the first impression of HOKA ONE ONE is its thick outsole. However, when we get HOKA ONE ONE EVO Rehi, it breaks our perception of HOKA ONE ONE. HOKA ONE ONE is already excellent. But for a excellent company, the most difficult thing is not to create but change.
