HOKA One One | EVO Jawz Trail Shoe Review

A pared down speed machine ideal for trail racing.

In this video, Run4It team member and HOKA racer, Hamish Battle, shows what the EVO Jawz trail running shoe from HOKA One One is capable of. He runs through the tech specs instore, before taking the shoe for a blast on one of his favourite local trail routes: the Mither Tap Hill Race route, which offers a great mix of light fast trails, steep climbs and technical terrain.

EVO Jawz. As it says in the name, a super aggressive shoe with massive lugs, so 6m lugs with a Vibram MegaGrip outsole (a sticky rubber) which is super durable as well

Lightweight, nimble, aggressive and grippy – hear why the HOKA EVO Jawz makes a great companion for tougher, more technical trails, as well as a great alternative to spikes for cross country.

Hamish has loved this shoe, ever since buying his first pair back in 2018 for the Skyline Scotland Ring of Steall Skyrace. He’s now onto his fourth pair!

Although a minimal shoe, the EVO Jawz still feels cushioned and forgiving on the firmer trails, which is something I really like about this shoe.
