HOKA Anacapa Shoe Review

THE BUZZ

Cushion, comfort and SO much support – the new Hoka One One Anacapa is the hiking boot we’ve all been waiting for. It’s super lightweight, durable, waterproof and comes with that famous HOKA cushioning we all know and love, but now in hiker form!

WHAT’S NEW

The Hoka Anacapa GTX is an entirely new shoe from the brand and our testers believe HOKA really hit the mark with this one — it’s your gateway to the great outdoors! With great ankle support and a Vibram Megagrip outsole, this form-fitting hiker is great for a weekend day hike or full-on backpacking adventure.

Let’s not forget to mention the SUSTAINABILITY factor here! HOKA Anacapa Mid and Low GTX are both made with recycled materials including GORE-TEX fabric with leaf bootie, which is 45% recycled content by weight and has 71% recycled material in the face fabric.

Molded PU sockliners are derived from 50% soybean oil and the upper is made with Leather Working Group (LWG) Gold-rated waterproof nubuck leather. Additionally, there is recycled polyester materials in the collar, mesh and laces.

FIT-FEEL-RIDE

When lacing up the Anacapa Mid GTX to hit the trails, the shoe checks all the boxes. Not only are they supremely waterproof (thanks, Gore-Tex!), but there was no “break in” time needed at all, which is fairly unheard of when it comes to good hiking boots.

They really do feel like a sneaker (with better ankle support!) but works more like a boot. Anacapa takes the lightweight, cushioned support and smooth ride you know from HOKA and turns it into a form-fitting, do-it-all hiking boot. Any distance, any weather, no problem.
