The HOKA Carbon X line has been seen on podiums of some of the world’s most competitive marathons and ultra-marathons. Now in its third version, the Carbon X 3 sports an improved fit along with an even more performance-oriented cushioning system. Featuring an all new PROFLYX midsole compound, the Carbon X 3 gets a bouncy cushioning upgrade featuring HOKA's lightest and most responsive foam compound to date. Embedded within the foam is a carbon fiber plate that works with the shoe’s meta-rocker geometry to give runners a very efficient and energy-saving ride that's perfect for maximizing performance over longer and harder efforts.
The Carbon X 3 is finished off with a sleek engineered knit construction that provides a secure lockdown of the foot while also feeling adaptable and breathable. The integrated knit tongue creates a glove-like fit while the silicone gloss print logos help save weight making this a race-ready shoe that still balances comfort, performance, and style.
