Ms. Tessa Prieto Valdes (Fashion icon , columnist , event host ) bought 3 pairs of running shoes .


HOKA ONE ONE started in 2009 when Ultra Marathon champion Nico Mermoud realized he needed shoes to help him run downhill faster while reducing the shock that took a toll on his legs. Mermoud then partnered with fellow athlete Jean-Luc Diard in engineering a shoe that had double the shock absorbing material than traditional running shoes and uniquely carved geometry that encouraged an efficient foot strike – thus the revolutionary lightweight running shoe brand was born.

“We are excited to be the official distributor of HOKA ONE ONE in the Philippines. The arrival of this amazing shoe brand in the country has long been anticipated by our local roster of triathletes, ultra-distance runners and marathoners,” said Toby Claudio, President of Quorum International Inc. and Founder of RUNNR. “As the leader in the local sports retail industry, we continue to support the growing Filipino running community by bringing in the best global brands.”

The event started past 5:00pm at the open area near Runnr outlet , The place was jam-packed with eager crowd waiting for their turns to buy the latest running gear. An audio video presentation showcases the different running shoes.
