Hoka One One & Skins – Fly At Night Tour

As runners, we all have to get some of our running in at night. At this time of the year it can be hard to motivate yourself to go out and run, especially when it’s peeing down with rain, you’re getting blown over by a gale and your fingers feel like frozen stalagmites.

The Fly At Night Tour (it sounds like a great name for a rock n’ roll band tour), comprises of four dates across our stores and has the legendary Hoka One One bringing along their lovely new Mach & Cavu Fly At Night Shoes for people to run in. Our friends at SKINS are also bringing along the best in compression tights for keen runners to try on. Not to forget that the brands are giving away shoes & tights on the night to lucky winners… we know how to run an event here!

The Hoka Fly At Night range is designed for those who run before dawn and after dusk and offers the lightest cushion with no limits – both shoes have reflective logos and offering an alternative colour-way to the normal bright brigade that Hoka is known for. The shoes are ideal for the session we did with Alton Runners (6 x 800m intervals) and are were also perfect for running around Eastleigh at night.

Martin from SKINS also very kindly talked to everyone about compression – how it works, why you need it and about everything that SKINS can do to aid your running. Ears were particularly pricked when he mentioned that they can help you run faster over time! If you’re looking for compression and especially a really quality product, then Skins are a must to try on.

Thanks very much to everyone who came along to our events at Eastleigh and Alton. We have two more dates left – the 545 Run Club at Gosport on Dec 5th and running out of Farnham Store on Dec 6th. Our advice is to come and try on some lovely lightweight shoes and the best in compression! It’s all free, you get to run, and you can ask the experts anything you want. What more could you want?

SIGN UP for the last two dates here.

Hoka One One Cavu Women’s Running Shoes | Night

Made for those who run but don’t just run, Cavu Fly at Night offers a versatile running shoe with a bold, black as night look. Inspired by night running culture in Japan, Cavu Fly At Night is designed for night running and features HOKA ONE ONE®’s much lauded “intelligent” PROFLY™ cushioning—softer in the heel for shock absorption and firmer in the forefoot for propulsion and energy return. That responsiveness is further enhanced by the outsole’s zonal R-BOUND™. This shoe really disappears on the foot and it delivers a smooth, light ride. And with its dark hued breathable mesh upper, which features black reflective logos and a reflective screen-printed bootie, it sure looks like clear skies ahead for the Cavu Fly At Night — especially on night runs.
