Street-approved. Trail tested.
Built at the intersection of road and trail, the new Challenger 7 has been completely reimagined from the ground up. Combining a simplified mesh upper with a soft new foam, we’ve increased the stack height for a plusher feel and added proprietary rubber to the bottom unit, along with a reimagined outsole design for the best all-terrain ride yet. Inspired by gravel tires, we’ve cued up smaller, tightly spaced lugs in center and larger, more aggressive lugs at the perimeter designed for improved traction on uneven terrain.
The HOKA Challenger 7 is a great shoe for runners and walkers that want one shoe for both roads and trails. It is also a great shoe to wear in the winter because the lugs give more traction on snow-covered sidewalks or roads.
HOKA made significant changes to the HOKA Challenger 7 to improve its road-running performance while still being able to handle the trails with ease. Designers updated the lug pattern for a smoother ride on pavement that also provides plenty of grip for the trails. The increased cushioning and stack height of the shoe give you extra comfort on long runs, hikes and long days on your feet.
The new upper incorporates more recycled content and makes the shoe more breathable. HOKA also removed the pull tab on the heel and extended the heel collar itself to make it easy to put on your foot. All of these updates led to an overall lighter shoe.
- CMEVA (Compression-Molded EVA) foam midsole provides optimal lightweight cushioning.
- Durabrasion Rubber for increased durability and dependability.
- 4mm Lugs provide reliable traction on.
- Engineered Mesh allows for ample air-flow.
- Extended Heel Pull relieves pressure on the achilles while offering easy entry.
