The Debut of Hoka’s Carbon X Shoe!

Hoka One One is launching its much-anticipated Carbon X shoe on June 1st and In Motion Running is excited to be a part of it. It’s a fast, light and well-cushioned shoe built with a carbon-fiber plate, cushy foam midsole and a rockered profile that combines to promote forward momentum.

This high-performance shoe debuted three weeks ago with a new world record for 50 miles, but it’s also an ideal shoe for training and racing from 10K to the marathon. We’ve tested it out and really appreciate the propulsion-enhancing vibe it gives off no matter where or how your foot hits the ground. It’s a great shoe for a wide range of runners, but the faster you run, the better it feels.

The Carbon X features a curved carbon-fiber plate to help propel you forward and accelerate your toe-off. It features PROFLY X foam, Hoka’s lightest and most resilient foam, and has a wide base for a stable, soft and extremely responsive ride. Complete with a lightweight upper and embroidered design, the Carbon X is built for speed.


Weight: 8.7 oz (men’s size 9), 7.2 oz. (women’s size 7)
Heel-to-Toe Offset: 5 mm (32mm heel, 27mm forefoot)


  • Single layer engineered mesh upper offers breathability across forefoot
  • Embroidery reinforcement provides a lightweight midfoot lockdown
  • Gusseted tongue prevents migration across the instep
  • Early stage Meta-Rocker delivers an uptempo and propulsive ride
  • Light and resilient PROFLY X foam sits above the carbon fiber plate while rubberized foam sits below the plate
  • Carefully positioned Carbon fiber plate curls under the lateral toes to deliver a smooth transition through the gait cycle
  • Wider forefoot platform provides support and stability along with an accommodating and comfortable fit
  • Rubberized foam outsole offers a lightweight, responsive ground contact

In Motion Running is selling the Carbon X as of Saturday, June 1st. (Stop by and try a pair on or call 720-808-7232.)
