HOKA ONE ONE have announced that their Tor Ultra Hi WP hiking boot has been named winner in the footwear category at the inaugural UK Outdoor Industry Awards.
The awards, which are a joint undertaking of the Outdoor Industries Assocation (OIA), Outdoor Trade Show (OTS) and The Telegraph Outdoor Adventure & Travel Show, received over 100 nominations, across 10 categories.
The Tor Ultra Hi WP made the final footwear shortlist of just 3 products after appraisal by a panel of industry experts, comprising both retailers and journalists. It was then declared the winner in the footwear category following a round of public voting.
"The awards ceremony was fantastic. It was great to see the reaction from the industry and the brilliant reception that the Tor Ultra Hi WP received. It's clearly captured the imagination of the press, retailers and most importantly the general public who voted for it. Everyone who picked it up and tried it out had a similar reaction, it offers so much shoe for the low weight, and is genuinely something different. A real wow product!" says Tony Leonard, HOKA ONE ONE Territory Manager for the North of the UK, who collected the award.
This accolade is the latest in a series of awards for the boot including 'Footwear Product of the Year 2015' from The Great Outdoors magazine, '2015 Gear Award' from review website GearWeAre.com and 'Editor's Choice' from Outdoor Enthusiast magazine. The Tor Ultra Hi WP is available now from HOKA ONE ONE, as well as from selected retailers nationwide.
