  • The Hoka One One Rapa Nui Trail has finally arrived! The Rapa Nui is the Men's version of the popular Kailua for Women - previously only available in the European market. This exciting new shoe is ideal for those who want the benefits of running in Hoka, but seek a lighter, more nimble shoe with a very responsive fit and feel. You'll still get maximum cushioning and a rocker profile standard in all Hoka shoes, but with the Rapa Nui's injection molded (HIR) IMEVA midsole, the energy return and light weight design makes for a faster performing shoe. Great for faster paced running, the midsole allows you to really move while providing protection and cushioning. The Rapa Nui Trail is a great option for racing all kinds of distances, from the 5k all the way up to the Marathon or even Ultra distances.

    For more information about how Hoka One One shoes work, what they can do for you, inspiration behind the brand, what customers are saying, and how to decide which model works best for you,visit our Hoka One One information page.

    How it Works:
    • Utilizing a 5 mm heel-to-toe drop and a rocker shaped, feather-weight midsole, the Rapa Nui's oversized midsole still absorbs any hard obstacle your foot may encounter, and once compressed, the midsole springs back under your forefoot for increased acceleration.
    • The Rapa Nui Trail is injection molded, meaning much greater rebound, energy return, and resilience than traditional Hoka shoes which allows for a performance oriented shoe, ideal for faster paced running or racing.
    • The outsole features 4mm thick lugs providing traction and grip, perfect for off-road surfaces.
    • With 50% more surface area in contact with the ground, and a midsole that allows the foot to recess into it by almost one inch, the shoe provides protection, stability, and pronation control unmatched in stability running shoes.

    • Weight- 11.1 ounces, size 9.
    • Heel to Toe Drop- 5mm.

    How It Fits:
    • The Rapa Nui runs true to size, although they remain slightly more narrow than other Hoka models. For example, if you typically wear a size 9, you will need to order a size 9. The largest size available at this time remains size 14. If you plan on using orthotics, we strongly suggest ordering one half size larger than your typical size.

    Best Hoka Yet Review by XRunner
    I'm 49 yo 5'9'' 155#. I've tried the Bondi B 2, Bondi B 3, Stinson Trail, Stinson Trail ATR, Huaka and the original Mafate. The Rapa Nui 2 is my favorite Hoka to date. It is lighter than the other models excluding the Huaka. I found the Huaka to be not supportive enough for Ultra distances. This shoe is not as cushioned as the rest but it is quite cushioned. It is much more streamlined and it's appearance is more in line with other mainstream shoes. I have narrower feet and this shoe is more narrow than the rest. The narrow fit may be one of the main reasons why I like this shoe so much. Other reasons are the lighter weight and the way it transitions from trail to road. I just ran a 100 miler on this shoe after having about 400 miles on it prior to the race so it is pretty durable. I imagine that I may get a couple more hundred miles out of it and at the less expensive price than the other Hoka's I consider that a deal. This is a great shoe if you need more cushion and have a narrow foot. (Posted on 10/9/14)
    Outstanding! Review by DR
    these are my second pair of rapa nui's...achieves most of the cushioning found in Bondi's, with less weight and a more snug of a fit...I use mostly on the road, and get around 400 miles on them, so whether you are running trails and/or roads, you will get your miles out of them...very comfortable from heel to toe, no hot spots, and light and sleek enough to race in...5 stars all the way (Posted on 4/10/14)
    Great Shoes - One Change Needed Review by Tim
    Very comfortable running shoes. Give yourself some time to break in your new shoes. They are a little firmer which is good if you use them when trail running. Weight is much less than traditional Tarmac and the ball of foot is much more flexible. These are great for speed work too.
    Hoka needs to improve the ortho liner as the one included is flat and very, very thin. If you have any arch to your foot you'll need to replace this liner with your own. Other wise these seem to be great shoes and another great product from Hoka. (Posted on 12/17/13)
    Great addition to the Hoka lineup Review by el duderino
    The Rapa Nui tunes up the Hoka ride with a slightly narrower and bit firmer midsole that is 5-6mm lower ride height...this coupled with a fairly aggressive tread makes for a worthy trail shoe that doesn't balk at some pavement miles. The medial portion of the shoe has rubber outsole and tread under the first metatarsal head, which is where all my previous Hokas midsoles broke down most quickly. The Rapanui feels more positive on muddy and snowy trails than either the Bondi or Evo. More miles need to be run to see if these kicks have the same seemingly magic anti-injury and quad saving qualities that the Stinson Evo offered, but initial assessment is that they are a very good shoe.
