Comments: Perfect! I do alot of jumping, I do Instanity & Asylum workouts and I wanted sneakers that had padding in the footbox. My first pair and these do the job. They are light, full foot support especially the front of the foot and heal. I am developing a bunion so the right sneakers is a must, did research and read the reviews and I can say I am very impressed and very very glad I got these. I also ordered the Mafate 3; but decided to exchange them for another pair of Stinson. Mafate 3 was stiff, heavy and I say when you find a good pair, just go with it! Was so excited I text my sister who is a marathon runner to check these out. Before I bought these I went to Dicks Sportsmen and they had no clue of this brand. In a way its like a well kept secret, trust me your feet will love you for it?

Comments: I love these shoes! These are my everyday shoes, not for just running. I have had so many compliments on them and people just curious to know what kind of shoes they are. The are my second pair of hokas. I also have the mafate and they are 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 this shoe and will buy the Stinson again.

Comments: I really like this shoe. I have plantar faciitis and my heel was very painful. Now I can walk again without pain. These shoes are a medium to slim fit.My foot is slim so I had to put both insoles in them.(They come with 2) I normally wear a 7 or 7.5, got the 7,Fits perfectly!! My Husband bought the Hoka Clifton because he has a wider foot.He says they have made his knee pain better.

Comments: I LOVE this shoe! When I first got it, I was skeptical because it's quite non-traditional and I thought it would be clunky and clumsy. However, its odd shape does not impair my stride at all. Its wonderful cushioning absorbs the impact of the road and enables me to run faster and longer. After much deliberation I used it in a half marathon trail race this weekend, and I was so glad I did. First Name:

Comments: I can run again!!! I injured my ankle a few months ago and have been searching for a stability shoe which allows a midfoot strike. The Hokas fit the bill. I ended up ordering a whole size smaller than I wear in Altras.
