Launching a confident assault against the barefoot shoe revolution, the Hoka One One series uses cushiony, rockered soles to provide a stable base and give you cloud-like feel over the toughest terrain. The Mafate 2 is their off-road version. It features a midsole that’s 30% lighter than traditional running shoes and has 2.5 times more volume to let you float over rocky trails. Even with all of that extra material, the Marfate 2 is still lighter than most trail running shoes at 11.3 ounces, allowing your run to still be nimble and swift. ($150, hokaoneone-na.com)
