...Julie won a pair of those in a nurse's appreciation gift thing. Loves them, but mostly for hiking trails. They're super light!
I have Saucony Gor Tex also. Both are a firmer feel. The Saucony 9 is just a tiny fraction small but ok and the Hoka is a tiny bit bigger...walked around in Hoka's all that day and my foot never felt cramped...usually I need half size larger for non running shoes. Definitely a Hoka man now. I feel like I'm up on the balls of my foot a little more, usually light, even the 'heavier' ones.
All these shoes are crazy expensive these days. I get the year old + models to save at least $30 or more and of course catch a really good sale couple of times a year.
