Gear editor and former pro triathlete Chris Foster walks through the features inside the brand new Hoka Carbon X racing shoes and takes viewers on a run along the American River in Sacramento, California, as athletes attempt to break the 100K running world record. Available May 15 for $180, the Hoka Carbon X features a highly rockered footbed with a carbon fiber plate sandwiched into the outsole.
