Customer Reviews

Comments: These are my second pair of HOKAs and I think they are the BEST shoes I have ever had!! I LOVE them. I love how they look, how they feel on my feet, and how they make my legs/knees not stiff and achy. I have had 2 knee surgeries (ACL repairs) and my knees used to hurt quite a lot. I don't even give them a second thought now. I don't think I will ever buy another brand of shoes after discovering these. I am extremely happy with my purchase after wearing them for about 3 weeks. The shipping was super fast and free! The sales are amazing too.

Comments: They are my second pair of hokas. I also have the Stinson but the mafate is at least a inch bigger at the largest part of the shoe. I prefer the Stinson over the mafate because the mafate is so large for everyday use but for running ultras I prefer the mafate. Not sure if this will help anyone or not. I love the hoka brand!
