Really a half size small

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Joel Runs from Arizona on Tuesday, December 6, 2016
Great shoe, but as stated in other reviews they definitely run a half size small. I've been through quite a few pairs of Hokas and thought I knew their sizing well enough.......had to return for .5 larger. Other than that and not being able to comment on durability yet they are wonderful.

Great feel, firmer than the Clifton but perfect for a trail shoe. Vibram rubber feels great on trail, slightly sticky on pavement. No other way to describe it, it feels tacky on pavement. No problem for my multi-surface Arizona runs but could see it getting annoying for a long stretch of pavement. Just keep that in mind.

I run between 7-15miles, with the .5 increase in size the toe box is very roomy. I've experienced no movement from my foot in the shoe even on extended climbs. This shoe is a down hill beast, for me it's just perfect. The heel has a cut out that is perfect for how my stride shifts to heal strike on the decent. It cups the heel perfectly and just feels really good and stable. Helps with impact fatigue and wear and tear a great deal. If your naturally a heel striker I could see you particularly enjoying the ride. Just Run!
