The Crossover Skyline-Float X from HOKA Excels from Street to Trail

Whether you’re hitting those rugged mountain trails or exploring your city, the HOKA Skyline-Float X is built to be your ultra-comfortable, super-versatile shoes of choice.

Designed as a “crossover” shoe suitable to both hardcore terrain and concrete jungles, the Skyline-Float X packs HOKA’s signature comfort and sustainability thanks to the dual-density 30% sugarcane EVA midsole, 50% Soybean-based sockliner, and 89% Castor oil-based Pebax plate.

The Vibram XS Trek outsole ensures you’ve got solid grip on any muddy trail or rain-slicked sidewalk, while the SwallowTail heel maximizes stability no matter your walking style (heel-striker or toe-striker).

Thanks to the low-profile cushion bed, your feet stay low to the ground so your center of balance isn’t compromised, but the material is firm enough to make the shoes very responsive with every step.

The recycled polyester upper is wonderfully breathable and cooling on those hot summer days, but still features a sturdy, protective design that will keep your feet comfortable and secure if you’re hoofing it up and down hills. At just under 15 ounces per shoe, they’re wonderfully lightweight but still tough.
