Comments: There are many things that I like about these shoes but sadly they caused a big problem for me. Though they have the widest toe box of the Hokas that I tried, still I gotta very painful blister/callous. Later looking at a review online it seems that I am not alone. I am still able to wear the trail version of this shoe in rotation with other Brooks shoes but sadly I can't wear this shoe that I otherwise like very much. See: http://fellrnr.com/wiki/Hoka_Shoe_Review. I got a painful version of the indicated "baby toe-second toe" Hoka blister. Perhaps if you have more narrow feet this shoe and other Hokas can work for you. Note: I have a high arch and squared off toes in the forefoot but do not typically order wide shoes.

Comments: This replaced the Stinson Tarmac ( per Hoka Rep and a marathon expo) What they did with this new upper is ridiculous. If you happen to venture onto a trail from pavement, you will have a shoe full of dirt. Also, impossible to get on and once you do, its too narrow... well for me. The upper where the laces are is irritating to the foot because there is no material separating you from it. Glad there are some of the old Tarmac available. Hoka One One... whats up?
