Two of our up-and-coming and popular brands at Fleet Feet Sports – Chicago, footwear brand Hoka One One and women’s apparel brand Oiselle, have teamed up for a women’s-only, limited edition version of Hoka’s lightweight Clayton 2 model that will have you flying above the Earth.
The Clayton 2 is one of Hoka’s lightest models – weighing in at 7.0 ounces for women. The Clayton 2 features a PRO2Lite dual density that is softer in the heel and firmer in the forefoot so it will cushion the impact of heel strike, yet also be responsive during toe-off and running uphill for a smooth transition.
The Clayton 2 also features a outsole of RMAT material, a blend of rubber and EVA foam that is both durable and responsive, yet lightweight at the same time.
Both brands have birds as their logos – Hoka One One means ‘flying over the earth’ in the Maori language and Oiselle means bird in French – and the Clayton 2 honors that with the Hoka logo on one side of the heel and the Oiselle logo on the other side of the heel. And the colors of the shoe tie-in those of Oiselle’s spring apparel line.
Get the chance to take a run in the Oiselle X Hoka Clayton 2 when Fleet Feet Sports – Old Town holds a fun run with Hoka One One and Oiselle athlete Stephanie Bruce on Saturday, April 22nd at 10am. Stephanie will also take the opportunity to sign autographs and speak about the challenges of returning to competitive running after child birth.
