I will start this post by saying I never ran in a Hoka before and I had high expectations for this shoe. This is also a first impression, so take it for what it’s worth to you. - The upper is by far the best thing about this shoe. Like @hokaoneone teach every shoe company how to make an upper. Super light, breathable, and supportive. It’s a 💯 - The cushioning is where I was expecting a great ride and well it was good just not great. For some people this maybe a racing shoe for me not at all. There’s this great soft ride, but no spring to it, so I see it as an easy day shoe for me. Definitely something I needed in my rotation though. - Aesthetics is just a no for me, but I didn’t get it for looks. I got it for that soft Hoka cushion. - Those of you that tried this shoe or want this shoe; what are you thoughts?
