“‘Fly Human Fly’ is the gateway to strengthening our connection with brand loyalists while inducting new adopters into the Hoka community. Hoka is championed by those who fell in love with the brand years ago and this new campaign provides a gateway to a new global audience,” Norma Delaney, VP of global brand marketing at Hoka, said in a statement. “Through ‘Fly Human Fly,’ we invite people into Hoka’s world where pinnacle product innovation is not only easy on the body, but world class fast. Movement supported by Hoka unlocks joy, optimism and a world of limitless potential.”

Hoka said the campaign will be amplified globally across its owned media and digital platforms, as well as media platforms outside of its own.

The campaign’s first video spot, dubbed “Pursuit,” is out now. The 60-second clip, according to Hoka, establishes its “belief in the transcendent power of movement.”

Hoka timed the release of the campaign to the debut of its Mach 5 running shoe, the next look from its beloved race-ready Mach franchise. The lightweight performance style features creel mesh uppers and lay-flat tongues, and offers the runner a snappier ride due to its responsive Profly midsole foam and rubberized EVA underfoot.

The Hoka Mach 5 is available now in men’s and women’s sizing via Hoka.com for $140.
