My Hokas feel like marshmelllow running which seems to be good for keeping jarring to a minimum....important for Vets and grand masters.....I like mine....I need a new pair
yes, the slightly overweight shoe guy at REI was going on about them as being "the best shoes ever" . Marshmallow is a good description. . I have some fairly minimal New Balances trail shoes so I thought would give these a try . Not sure that I will use them fpr off trail running/orienteering since they may not give the support etc and might roll my ankle .
I've been running on Hoka's for trails and pavement since this spring. I started doing morning runs while it was still quite cool and my knees were taking a pounding. Joe Boler suggested them. He uses them exclusively.
On trail they seem to be faster and lighter on the joints
How about off trail ? any experience.
I prefer them on streets...like you they seem "rollable"
I got some of their light hiking boots for my daily walks w/ dogs. Definitely much cushier than my Asolos. I do occasionally jog in them, planning to get a pair of their road shoes for pavement runs.
I've don e rocks and roots, but still on trail. Joe says they are much grippier than you would think. They definitely aren't rugged shoes.
