See The Design Process Of HOKA’s Carbon X-SPE

Hoka designer, Ryan Crouch recently shared a look at the design process of the HOKA Carbon X-SPE.

“Special edition (SPE) upper to complement the original carbon-plated sole unit by @whereismymatt that changed the game. Internal bootie construction and secondary mono-mesh cage to offer snug support and rich detailing. A lot of love went into this one with an amazing team!” – Ryan
