The North Face
HOKA One One approached me to take part in a promotional campaign for their new TenNine Hike shoe, a trail running shoe designed for the mountains. With classic HOKA design guaranteeing a comfortable and gliding run, I knew they were built for performance, but with the extra-large heel they seemed perfectly suited to running steep descents. I began brainstorming shoot locations and ideas, and decided that I’d try to focus on a very dynamic shoot, with lots of movement and excitement in the shots. Alongside Sarah Rodgers, who helped me shoot the project, we headed to the steep scree slopes of Glamaig on the Isle of Skye where we we’re able to capture some exhilarating, dynamic and performance focussed shots. The increased area of the heel definitely improved foot placement, grip, comfort as well as giving a huge confidence boost when sending it down the hill.
