I was in town on a cross country road trip and in need of a trail running shoe. For reference I usually wear new balance/saucony for running. I had a great customer service experience at the store and went with my first pair of Hokas. I tried them out immediately on the long lake trail and they were great! I recommend them to people new to Hoka and those just looking for a solid trail running shoe.
Because of the light weight, porous material, my feet are always dirty.. not great
I love the new colors! Unfortunately, the new version of Torrent is more narrow in the toe box which makes my bunion unhappy. I’m hoping they will stretch a bit.
