Hoka Arahi 3 Men
Big G Says…
The Arahi 2 was a lightweight highly cushioned shoe with mild stability. Arahi 3 has some minor tweaks both in the upper and the midsole. The upper is now an engineered jacquard mesh for a better more breathable fit. lt appears a little narrower than the Arahi 2.
The dual-density midsole is a few millimetres thicker than the Arahi 2 and is slightly firmer. The J-Frame is also marginally denser enhancing the stability in a similar way as the Guide Rails work in the Brooks Ravenna 10 and Adrenaline 19.
A little rigid initially, the shoe breaks in quickly and is well worth trying on. It's cushioning makes it ideal for long runs and because of its lightweight and responsiveness can be good for shorter faster-paced runs as well. This is one of the lightest stability shoes in our range and with its early stage Meta-Rocker for a smooth heel-toe-transition, it definitely deserves a tryout.
