Newly designed, the shoe is softer and offers a smoother ride than its predecessor.
Perhaps not one of the better known HOKA models, this shoe really does offer something a little different from the brand.
The new Elavon is positioned at the top of the brand's neutral range above the better known Hoka Bondi 6, Hoka Clifton 6 and the Hoka Rincon models.
It’s a maximal cushioned shoe as you’d expect, but it’s also very stable thanks to the PROFLY cushioning sitting within an outer cradle of secondary cushioning material. This gives a softer initial impact yet with a control stable ride; its works well and even manages to keep mild over-pronators stable.
While it’s not a heavy shoe it does feel a little bulky on the foot at first due to the deep cushioning and heel flare, but after a couple of runs it’s a very capable, relatively fast riding shoe.
The upper has a new lacing system, midfoot straps wrapping the foot for increased stability and creating a very secure fit; again, making the shoe very stable.
The toe-off is improved and enhanced by strategic forefoot grooving. Crystal transparent rubber some durability.
Whilst being quite different to many of the brands other models we actually like it and think it’s probably one of their more versatile models, performing well at short easy runs, tempo sessions and those long endurance miles.
Top layer PROFLY midsole offers a responsive toe-off with a forgiving landing.
Active foot frame in the midsole is deeper for added support.
Extended heel provides more cushion underfoot and smoother transitions.
Crystal transparent rubber provides a clean aesthetic.
Strategic forefoot grooving offers increased flexibility during toe-off.
Lightweight engineered mesh on the upper offers lightweight comfort with ideal airflow.
TPU heel clip supports the foot within the shoe for enhanced security.
Asymmetrical tongue provides a secure feel.
Tongue features strategic cutouts for breathability
