    Launch Season - HOKA Cielo X1

    by Lionel Brahim Brodie III


    The All Gender HOKA Cielo X1 arrives at Philadelphia Runner, just in time for Spring Race Season, in a new colorway (yes I know we talked about this yesterday.....it's always Race Season). You may have noticed the Evening Sky/Lettuce (Blue) color on the feet of some of our country's fastest at the U.S. Olympic Team Marathon Trials a few weeks ago. We are bringing you the elusive Cerise/Solar Flame colorway. I can't tell if it's Red or Orange, but it's FIRE! See what I did there? Sorry, it's borderline cringy but I couldn't pass that one up.




    What is not a joking matter is the intentionality that was placed into eliminated anything that didn’t enhance the performance of the shoe. Purposely designed with what our friends at HOKA are describing as "dynamic cutouts for weight savings,” the Cielo X1 is poised to be one of the fastest shoes on the market. A winged carbon fiber plate is sandwiched between two layers of PEBA foam. Sporting a speed–centric rocker shape, breathable knit upper, and gusseted knit tongue, you’ll be locked in and ready for racing.


    Speaking of being "locked in" (you're now bracing yourself for another admittedly awful attempt at wittiness, but I'm not going there), the recycled polyester laces add an incredibly unique, streamlined aesthetic to the package. Not to be confused with pomp, the lacing technology keeps you, as aforementioned, securely locked in and prepared to run. Combine this with a firm, low–profile cushioning bed that keeps your foot closer to the ground and poised for efficient push–offs…..go time!



    Other Key Features include:

    Knit upper and collar, delivering lightweight breathability

    Asymmetrical gusseted knit tongue, providing easy entry and locked–in feel

    Resilient two–layer PEBA midsole, proving soft and bouncy with high energy return

    Winged carbon fiber plate, supplying dynamic propulsion and stability

    Dynamic cutouts and polyester laces for weight reduction

    Minimal rubber outsole coverage, also decreasing weight




    The only thing left to decide is at which race you're going to debut your pair. Only available at our Center City location, and online, you should act fast. There are racing opportunities aplenty in March, and the HOKA Cielo X1 is a shoe you'll definitely want on your feet as you toe the line.
