Hoka One One Men’s Challenger ATR Running Shoes – Hola One One Challenger ATR

Wide toe box, soft upper, great cushioning and excellent grip.

The best running trainers i have ever owned. These are way too comfy to be trainers for running. In fact i wear them even when i am not running. Ultra light weight and stylish. Already bashed out over 200 miles plus and they still look new.

Yet to put to the test in the gym, but on a gentle stroll, i noticed my calf muscles tightening, so i believe the over pronating insoles are doing their job.

I could of done with maybe 1/2 size larger. Please note i am recovering from a broken ankle and still have some swelling when running. As a guide size i also wear asics (10. 5) and salomon (11), should probably of gone for 11 in the hoka as well. One of the main reasons for buying the hoka was because of the pounding my broken ankle takes when running.

Excellent product ,excellent service.

I was surprised how light these shoes are. Reviews said so, but looking at them it was hard to imagine. If you like topo toe box, you might feel a bit constricted, but overall a great ride in the first 40 miles.

A great running shoe if you are heavy footed, or doing increased mileage (esp on tarmac). The ride is comfortable and well cushioned and has allowed me to start training again after a 3 month lay off with plantar fasciitis.

Super cushioned, excellent grip, exceeded expectations.

Did start to lose shape after a few months.

So i started getting pain in my plantar fascia which i dont entirely know the cause, but may have been because of running over rocky ground in thin soled sauconys. I planned a 10 mile run but stopped after 8 because of the discomfort. The next day i tried an easy 5k and stopped halway, so i thought i was doomed. I wasnt going to fell sorry for myself this time so i joined the gym so that i could maintain fitness. I also bought some plantar protection insoles for about 20 quid which worked instantly. I couldnt run eith them because of the solid arch support. So i went against all the minimalist hype and bought these maximalist shoes. I still get that lumpy feeling in my arch, but because these shoes are so well cushioned, its ok. My first run in these was quite weird.
