Using the same concept with oversized midsole and cushioning as the rest of the Hoka range the Ora changes direction. This large slider is ideal for providing freedom and comfort at the end of a long day. Lightweight luxury.
Hoka One One says:
Built off the blueprints of the beloved ORA Slide, we’ve added four air flow channels for superior breathability. A comfort-driven style designed for downtime; this sustainable spinoff treads lighter with an earth-friendly sugarcane footbed. Grounded in the same dual-density geometry and injection-molded outsole as the original icon, the ORA Slide 3 delivers foot-cradling comfort in a future-friendly silhouette.
Hoka One One's Ora Recovery Slide 3 is exactly that, a slider (or old school sandal) designed to let your feet breathe and recover at the end of a long day. It is definitely a luxury item but being made entirely of dual density foam it's definitely worth the weight if your feet need to be out of your walking footwear at the end of the day. Like the rest of the Hoka footwear, the style is not going to be to everyone's liking but the performance certainly is. Putting these on at the end of the day lets your feet breathe, gives freedom of movement and if it's cold you can still have your socks on to stay warm.
The dual density foam provides both cushioning and durability. The soft top layer is comfortable and allows your feet to start recovering from a hard day's walking. They really come into their own on long multi day treks where ten hour days on your feet covering challenging terrain take it out of you. There's enough grip and shaping that your feet are secure while you're walking around camp.
