Our PROFLY X technology, a special combination of foams, employed with our trademark geometry, delivers an inherently stable, soft and responsive experience. Completed with a lightweight upper scrutinized through the lens of speed, the Carbon X is designed to empower athletes to fly.

I walk ~10 miles a day on pavement/boardwalk, 5-6 times a week. I regularly wear Nike EXP sneakers. I was hoping to feel a clear difference wearing these $180 sneakers (I pay $70 for my EXPs). I have only worn them once, and that was unmemorable. Pain moved from my knees to my quads, presumably an adjustment to the fit. My feet and overall body felt no better. Will see what continued use brings.
I have been running for 6 years now and these are the best pair of running shoes I have invested in. I will be going with the hoka one carbon x for many years to come for up pace workouts and races.
