Wasted $$

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Tri Dad from CO on Thursday, December 8, 2016
I've run in other hoka shoes and, while they do not make this clear on their website or literature, they clearly use two different types of foam in the midsole: soft and stiff. These shoes use the stiffer foam in the midsole which I find far less preferable than the softer foam. To me, these ride similar to other less padded running shoes but ride much higher off the ground. This leads to a higher risk of turning an ankle--particularly while on the trail, which is the stated purpose of the ATR designation. To me, this is counterproductive and I don't see much use for this shoe in my running future.
