Following its footwear and running apparel partnership with thisisneverthat, HOKA ONE ONE is once again flexing its collaborative arm by calling on the outdoor cognoscenti at Cotopaxi. The two entities join hands on the HOKA ONE ONE Torrent 2 footwear silhouette and craft it with an extra flashy multi-colored facelift.
Built with a low-yet-chunky profile, the collaborative piece is anchored by the synthetic and mesh upper which is formed with a forest green background. From there, the accents take a walk on the wild side and mismatch between each foot. The left side features orange hits across the lateral stripes mudguard stripes and on the interior liners, while the opposite’s side arrives in volt green. The right shoe’s patterns split between volt hits on the lateral, while hot pink ornaments the medial. Branding from both parties is slapped onto heels in the form of vivid blue font, and the flecked laces are sprayed with hot pink paint for further contrasting.
More mismatching energy is found along the midsoles, the right side sporting a combo of yellow and orange color-blocking while the left side offsets orange and blue.
