What Run Oregon is Wearing: HOKA Perfomance shirt with Polartec

As you area aware, HOKA ONE ONE makes a damn fine pair of shoes. However, this past spring they released their first line of performance apparel and partnered with Polartec – an amazing decision. We were sent an item from their new line – the Performance Short Sleeve – and absolutely love the look and functionality.

First of all, I am in love with this color. I know, I know – color shouldn’t matter when it comes to workout shirts. That may be true, but this Green Ash style is really beautiful. It also fits quite nice – the large provided a true fit that was not too tight or too loose. It is also comfortable and soft – nice additions as well. After all, HOKA is known for comfort in their shoes.

The Power Dry components are designed to do what Polartec does best – keep runners comfortable and dry regardless of the running situation. This design is too technical for me, so I recommend heading here for all the fancy specs.

What I do know is that this shirt, in addition to being moisture-wicking, also dries quickly and resistant to odors – as well as being breathable. It’s a shirt that should hold up to all your running needs for years to come.

Check out the entire Men’s and Women’s Performance Shirt Collection. There are sleeve lengths of all sizes, as well as availability in men’s and women’s sizes.

Word on the street is that HOKA is working on another line of apparel with Polartec – including some fleece available this fall!

HOKA ONE ONE was created with one goal in mind — make running easier. We do things differently, from the look of our shoes all the way to the technologies that make them possible. If you’ve ever worn a pair, you know what the HOKA difference feels like, but there’s a lot that goes on behind the scenes.
