Our verdict

  • Possibly our favourite Hoka shoe

First impressions

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.

Midsole

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.

Upper

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.

Sole

The toe-off is improved and enhanced by strategic forefoot grooving. Crystal transparent rubber some durability.

Conclusion

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.
