Road-Running Remastered

The Rocket X 2 from HOKA has undergone a transformation and has been refined from top to bottom with new geometries, a new upper, and an all-new foam. Let’s start off with the updated upper, made with a technical and breathable synthetic mesh. This upper is super lightweight and delivers a foot-hugging fit after lacing up for a race-ready lockdown. Moving on to the midfoot, we have an internal mid-foot cage that also wraps the foot allowing you to feel supported all around.

On the outsole, HOKA strategically placed zonal rubber to help extend the life of the Rocket X 2 without adding any unnecessary weight. Next up is the all-new foam from HOKA: PEBA foam. This is truly a tip-of-the-spear, premium foam that is more responsive and has a higher rebound rate than the foam used in the Rocket X or Carbon X shoes. Pair this new foam with a higher stack height and a newly remastered carbon fiber plate and you have yourself a rocket that’s ready for takeoff.

My choice for 26.2

Let me start by expressing my gratitude to Marathon Sports. The shoes shipped fast and I am recommending them to everyone I talk to about running shoes and gear. These shoes are fantastic! I will admit I have a collection of Hoka, beginning with their Arahi 3 and most recently the Clifton 9 and these, Rocket X 2. My first "super shoes" were the Saucony Endorphin Pro 1's, which felt great on the foot but my plantar fascias always cramped after anything more than 2 or 3 miles in those. These Rocket X 2's have that similar PEBAX squishy-bounce feel, but the stability and comfort are vastly greater. I wore them once for a 5k before my 26.2, and they carried me the distance with no complaints. Excellent breathability, lockdown, and comfort. I'm normally a Hoka 9, so I took the advice to go up to a 9.5 and I am so glad I did. Perfect fit! Get these, you won't regret it!
