Best shoes ever!

I already had two pair of Hoka stinsons. In fact I had just gone to REI and bought a new pair for 160.00 not even a month ago. I was so happy to see these on STP I purchased two pair. They were ~75.00 each pair with my discount. The reason I love these shoes so much is the comfort. I am mid 50's overweight. I have terrible planter faciatis pain and just walking was excruciating. Although I am a zookeeper and active at work, I needed a shoe that I could exercise and do long distance walking in to lose weight and get back into shape. These are the shoe. They look really silly in my opinion, but I have zero foot pain and can walk amazingly long distances in them. If you suffer from foot or leg pain, I would highly recommend these shoes. They fit true to size. The laces are awesome, you never have to worry about shoe laces coming undone and there are two elastic straps to keep the excess under wraps. A bit tight to pull on but if you have problems get a shoe horn. Each model has a different cushion I've found the Stinson to have the most cushy of the Hokas I've tried. One other thing, I've noticed is they seem to improve your core. I feel stronger and taller, not sure why but just noticed it since I've been wearing the shoes. Maybe it's just my muscles tighting up now they're being used again.
