The Hoka Kawana is a maximally cushioned shoe that features Hoka’s new CMEVA midsole, a foam designed to give a responsive and lively feel. It also features a subtle version of Hoka’s swallow tail extended heel which, along with a crash pad, aims to promote a smooth ride, specifically for heel striking.
