Brands (Old)

 

Hoka One One is an athletic shoe company originating in France that designs and markets running shoes. The brand first gained attention in the running industry by producing shoes with oversized outsoles, dubbed "maximalist" shoes due to extra cushion; this was in contrast to the minimalist shoe trend that was gaining popularity at the time of the company's founding in 2009.
Hoka produces both low-profile and max-cushion shoes for road, trail, and all-terrain; throughout its product line, Hoka shoes retain features like a low weight-to-cushion ratio and midsole and outsole geometry designed to promote inherent stability and an efficient stride.

Another young upstart in the world of running shoes, Altra was founded by two high school running buddies, Golden Harper and Brian Beckstead, with the goal of making shoes built for the way people naturally run.
After testing prototypes in grueling races like the Wasatch 100, Harper and Beckstead released the Instinct (men’s) and Intuition (women’s), the first Altra shoes, in 2011. These kicks, like all the models that followed, showcased the company’s three core technologies: FootShape, ZeroDrop, and Fit4Her.
Unbox a pair of Altras and you’ll see that the forefoot is wider than other shoes—a result of FootShape, which is an enlarged toe box that allows the foot to expand and gives the toes more space. ZeroDrop refers to the shoe's heel-to-toe drop, or the difference in height from the heel to the forefoot. Different from most other brands, Altra shoes have little or no drop, meaning your foot lays flat rather than sloping downward from heel to toe. Finally, there’s Fit4Her, in which Altra’s women’s shoes are tailored to match the biomechanics of female feet. This means they’re narrower through the heel and midfoot and can fit women’s longer arches, for example.

 

T8 started out as two blokes with a running problem. Many big name sports brands hail from Europe or the United States and make decent running gear for cool, dry conditions. For them in tropical Hong Kong, however, not so great.
For six months a year, it averages 30C and 85% humidity here, so sweat just doesn't have that evaporative cooling effect. They need running gear that is crazy lightweight for minimal heat insulation, extra wicking and quick drying, plus super breathable for maximum air flow.
That's their goal at T8: ultralight, supercool, chafe-free. Human ingenuity to help you beat the toughest conditions #mindovermountain. Here in Hong Kong, this means Category 8 Typhoons, but T8 gear is also great for everyday casual wear.

Xero Shoes® are a modern spin on the traditional barefoot running sandal — durable, stylish and affordable — and so light and low-profile it’s like you’re not wearing anything. Yet, you get a strong layer of protection, your feet and legs work the way nature intended, your posture can naturally realign, and you awaken your senses and stimulate your brain as you Feel The World™.
Thanks to Chris McDougall’s inspiring and exciting best-selling book, Born to Run, and research from Harvard’s Daniel Lieberman, people all around the world are re-discovering the magic of barefoot running and natural movement.
Many people describe how barefoot running has improved their running, healed old injuries, strengthened their feet and legs, turned flat feet into feet with arches, and much more.
One big worry about barefoot running, not surprisingly, is all the stuff on the ground that can hurt and cut your feet, plus all the dirt you have to wash off when you’re finished running. And most stores and restaurants won’t let you in without shoes.
That’s why you’ll want a pair of Xero Shoes. If you can’t or don’t want to be totally barefoot, these are “better than barefoot”.
