Hoka One One Mafate WP Low Shoes
$190, 13.9, www.hokaoneone.com
You’ll never be in search of a conversation-starting line wearing the unusual, huge-platformed Hokas (see Issue 68, October 2010 and Issue 72, May 2011) for reviews of the Mafate and Bondi B models), and the new waterproof-breathable version makes a bomber fastpacking companion. The WP version (aside from three ounces) also adds a gusseted tongue to help keep water at bay.
