Are you sick and tired of the all-minimal-everything push that's been so prevalent in the running world as of late? If so, this might be the answer you've been looking for. The Hoka One One Rapa Nui 2 Tarmac is all about cushioning and responsiveness.

From the get-go, you'll notice the oversized midsole of the Hoka One One Rapa Nui 2. Making use of the brand's proprietary full-length HIP EVA cushioning, the lightweight foam is designed to absorb the brunt of any and all impact, ensuring a smooth and safe ride. This super sized midsole construction is said to be up to 2.5 times as large as the midsole volume of standard running shoes. And although it's chunkier than normal midsoles, it doesn't add any extra bulk: the Hoka One One Rapa Nui 2 weighs in at just 10.5 ounces.

The Hoka One One Rapa Nui 2 s further enhanced by its Meta-Rocker midsole geometry, which in layman's terms means that it's shaped to deliver the most efficient transition possible.
