Hoka One One Cavu Running Shoe is a brand new shoe that is lightler and more responsive than previous models of shoe. The midsole has been constructed using Hoka's new PROFLY™ technology that provides a softer heel landing and more structured forefoot to help promote more propulsion. This combination is to encourage a faster and more cushioned run as well as giving impact protection. Inside, the heel counter provides enough structure for secure fit. Parts of the midsole are cutaway to increase traction and flexibility for a smoother ride. The lycra upper has a seamless, open knit, engineered mesh that gives a flexible but secure fit that is highly breathable.
In a Neutral shoe the midsole is made up of a high cushioned material with no extra medial (arch) support to lessen the impact that legs have to endure when running.
Neutral running shoes are for those who have, what is regarded to be, the 'ideal' running motion. Initial impact will always be towards the outside of the foot, whether you heel strike or land towards the forefoot. For a Neutral gait the foot then rotates inwards to help absorb shock, but stops when the foot is positioned straight from the heel up through the achilles to the lower leg. This better alignment puts no, or very little, stress on the lower leg muscles and joints resulting in less joint related injuries.
Neutral Shoes are also recommended for Under Pronators. Underpronation occurs when the foot doesn't role inwards enough from the initial impact. Underpronators should look for higher cushioned neutral shoes to help with the lack of natural shock absorption.
