RICHMOND, Calif., Oct. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- HOKA ONE ONE^®, designers of
the revolutionary oversized cushioned running shoe with engineered midsole
geometry and a division of Deckers Outdoor Corporation (NASDAQ: DECK), is
proud to announce the addition of Conrad "The Caveman" Stoltz to the HOKA ONE
ONE athlete team.
A native South African, Stoltz is no stranger to the pro triathlon circuit.
Conrad has 22 years of professional triathlon experience, including being
four-time XTERRA World Champion and 10 time USA Series Champion - the only
athlete to hold that many titles - as well as also being a three-time
International Triathlon Union Cross Triathlon World Champion, both off-road
During the XTERRA Series, Stoltz earned his nickname "Caveman" due to his
large stature, standing at 6ft 3in and 183lb and his incredible speed during
downhill sections of the mountain biking leg.

HOKA ONE ONE family," said Jim Van Dine, Brand President of HOKA ONE ONE."He
demands high performance products that will enable him to excel in the sport
of triathlon. This is a good fit for our brand."
"I was unsponsored for the first 8 months of this year. It was a blessing in
disguise as I was able to seek some good advice and try various brands of
running shoes. The first time I ran in HOKA ONE ONE, I knew I'd found
something special," said Stoltz. "I'm really excited about the shoes, the
concept and especially about what I saw in the 2014 showroom! So here's to
more cushioning, more comfort, more traction and more XTERRA wins," added
