Comments: This is a fantastic lighter weight shoe with superb heel and forefoot cushioning without feeling, at all, mushy. This model is not as build up as much (midsole) as most other Hoka models, but it's still provides an excellent heel to toe transition. This is probably the best running shoe I've ever owned in 30+ years of running considering the weight, cushioning plus over comfort. Have taken 4 7 mile runs and my legs are almost refreshed after doing them. I highly recommend this one! The only small downside was I didn't like the flimsy laces provided and bought some 45" oval laces and the work fine.

Comments: I have enjoyed Hoka shoes,the bondi 2 and evo,this shoe felt great out of the box,I had been wearing the rapi nui comp the European only predecessor to this shoe which fit well ,so I was happy when this shoe was released in the USA.Thats where it ends this shoe is far more narrow than any other hoka shoe and with the foot sitting down in the sole a little there is no room for flex.now if you have narrow feet this is great news for you,but I wear a normal D width and this shoe makes the side of my feet and little toe ache after 6 miles So very disappointed with this shoe Hoka need to work on there toe box and make a width selection available,because other than it would be an awesome shoe.
