Product Summary

Hoka’s Arahi 6 stability running shoe is engineered to provide a balanced cushioning and maximum support without adding weight. These sneakers feature J-Frame technology, which helps to prevent inward foot rolling as well as overpronation without interfering with your natural gait. The compression-molded foam midsole offers some cushioning and encourages a good toe-off.The Arahi 6 are equipped with Hoka’s Meta-Rocker technology, which combines a low heel-to-toe drop with a rounded sole shape to propel you forward while encouraging good form on every stride.

One common issue many users report is the lack of traction on wet ground. It seems the durabrasion rubber outsole may not be grippy enough when not on dry ground. Additionally, the sole felt overly rigid to some while also lacking cushioning. As with most Hoka brand shoes, the Arahi 6 comes with an expensive price tag.
