How much do you really love your Hoka OneOne?

Some friends just sent us this pic in answer to the above question. It’s their way of saying ‘a lot’!

Thanks Shane & Belinda! I think you've covered pretty much every model.

Hoka OneOne shelves are now full

The shelves at Hoka OneOne Australia HQ are now full! Hit up your local running or tri store or visit us online now to order yours!

And we will shortly be announcing the winner in our Facebook competition and starting a couple of new ones for you. Thank you for your support! It’s been great to hear from so many of you about what you want from Hoka OneOne and what they have already done for you.

We do appreciate that this is a very different shoe. For some people it’s confronting, even annoying because it appears to so fully go against everything they think about shoes or even about running. But for others, it’s the key to their next race, it’s a chance to run again, it’s their big hope for their next Iron Man, it’s a weapon in successful adventure racing, and for some, like Perth’s speedy young Scott Hawker, it’s their partner in course records and podium finishes.

More to follow, including a lucky winner of some flash new running shoes, but for now . . .

We have the nicest customers!

Adhiyatni first got in touch with us a bit over a week ago to ask some questions about where she could buy Hoka OneOne in Canberra and which model might work best for her. Today, out of nowhere, there’s a lovely homemade poster on our wall.

Thanks Adhiyatni. Welcome to Hoka OneOne.

Team Born to Run, 2,000+km without a blister!

Team Born to Run, Heaven’s Gate, 3,000m ASL, Gobi March 2012. L to R Ron Schwebel, Greg Donovan, Matt Donovan, Jess Baker, Roger Hanney. pic by James Holman, courtesy of http://www.BornToRun.com.au

Between them, the members of Team Born to Run have raced over 2,000km Chile’s Atacama Desert and China’s Gobi so far in the Racing The Planet 4 Deserts┬áseries 2012 without yet having a single blister to show for it. Hoka OneOne is the team’s official shoe sponsor.

The Born to Run Foundation is being established with a goal of raising awareness of, and funding for research into juvenile diabetes. So far this year, the newly minted organisation has raised over $60,000. Roger Hanney works for Hoka OneOne in Australia, runs for Team Born to Run, and has type 1 diabetes. He is currently nominated for a significant award in Australia because of his running adventures as a diabetic and the hope that they might inspire others – with or without the condition – to get seriously active.

Public voting is open for one more week. Winning this award will hopefully support the team in future fundraising as they prepare to race in the Sahara and Antarctica just 3 months from now.

Jane Trumper proves that . . .
