Introducing the HOKA x WTAPS capsule collection. Infusing hike and recovery favorites with streetwear edge.

From the creative mind of Testu Nishiyama, WTAPS and HOKA present the results of their first collaboration: a distinctive reinterpretation of HOKA’s ‘ANACAPA LOW GTX’ and ‘ORA LUXE’ models.

Departing from the conventional designs of these HOKA shoes, WTAPS introduces its signature style to the hiking shoe and recovery sandal, showcasing durable olive and black colorways. Prioritizing both form and function, the ‘ANACAPA LOW GTX’ features a soft suede upper combined with GORE-TEX technology for weather protection. Meanwhile, the ‘ORA LUXE’ emphasizes comfort and recovery with its sugarcane EVA midsole. Additional collaborative elements include WTAPS branding, orange heel tabs, and the iconic crossbones motif adorning both the ‘ORA LUXE’ and ‘ANACAPA LOW GTX’.
