Starting with the upper design, the Torrent 3 features sleek and bright colorway options, that are sure to turn heads on the trails. This new upper design balances adaptable comfort to each runner’s foot, and added structure where you need it. The upper is made of a breathable mesh material that provides ample ventilation through the toebox, keeping your feet cool and dry on even the hottest trail running adventures. The shoe also has a gusseted tongue that helps to keep out debris and prevent slippage through the midfoot, which can be a real issue on rocky/technical trails. The Hoka Torrent 3 upper offers a snug, comfortable fit. There’s also a padded collar and tongue for extra lockdown comfort, and the footbed is lined with a soft material that feels great against your skin. The heel counter is not plush, but padded enough for the two-hour efforts out on the trails.
