Vanquish 2 Triathlete Magazine Buyer's Guide

From Triathlete Magazine:

HOKA One One Vanquish 2

The draw: Impressive update
*Best In Class*
Not only is the Vanquish 2 considerably lighter than the previous edition (almost 2 full ounces lighter per shoe), it also rides more smoothly and is more responsive than the original. It still features a cradle design, in which the foot and interior structure of the shoe is encased on the sides and bottom by a durable two-layer foam shell. Impossibly light for a shoe with as thick of a midsole as it has, the Vanquish 2 is remarkably flexible and offers a nice mix of soft landings and energetic toe-offs, especially at moderate to fast paces.

Having collaborated closely with HOKA to help usher in this improved generation of the Vanquish, it is truly an honor to see our design listed amongst the pages of Triathlete Magazine — the most trusted resource for the world’s top-tiered triathletes. Gaining recognition from an accredited source, one that is considered The Authority on the subject, is the highest form of validation. We were confident that this running shoe was a legitimate upgrade, but it is simply remarkable to see the design attracting the attention that it has (such as being named “Editor’s Choice” by Competitor Magazine).

Congratulations to HOKA for continually creating such quality running products and thank you to Triathlete Magazine for recognizing such quality when you see it. Well done, team.
