HOKA ONE ONE is a shoe for all runners, from joggers to elite athletes looking to improve their performance.

Ty says, “HOKA ONE ONE provides me with the shoes and gear that I wear in training and racing. I run a lot of mileage – over 160 miles per week at times – and I owe a big part of my ability to stay healthy to my HOKAs. They have tons of cushion to protect my bones and joints, while still providing a smooth ride and a light shoe. I love ’em!”

STRIVE Trips organizes community-service based programs for high school and college student athletes to travel to Peru and Kenya.

Ty says, “STRIVE is a program I’ve been working with since 2011, both leading programs on the ground in Peru and working as an ambassador during the year. I love representing STRIVE because it combines service and athletics – two things about which I’m extremely passionate.”
