Comments about Mens Hoka One One Stinson 3 Running Shoe:

This shoe is one of the best in terms of cushioning. However, the toe box is too narrow for my foot. Even with a size 14 shoe, it is not wide enough across the toes. After about two months, my little toe wears a hole through the side of the shoe.

Out of the Box, But not for the long run, just yet.

By Adam W.

from Windsor, IL

Pros

  • Cushioning

  • Top Of Ankle Padding
  • Wide toe box

Cons

  • Sewing On Tongue

Best Uses

Comments about Mens Hoka One One Stinson 3 Running Shoe:

This is my 2nd pair of Hoka shoes. Love the padding. But... my previous pair was the Bondi 3. My only issue with those shoes was the lack of padding on the ankles and the bottom of the shoes had a lot of wear (from road contact). The Stinson 3 does have better padding on the ankles and improved material on the bottom of the shoes. But... the tongue is different, and the sewing on it gave me a blister on the top of my foot. The tongue is also a "traditional" shoe tongue, which I liked the Bondi 3 with less tongue, more of a elastic material. and the Bondi 3 had an elastic strap above the laces, which I would tuck my laces into... and now my laces keep coming untied.

GREAT update!

By Katumwasa

from Berkshires, MA

Comments about Mens Hoka One One Stinson 3 Running Shoe:

Major improvements over the earlier model. Padded tongue, standard laces for a better fit, and the upper is a little less porous for bad-weather runs. In sum, the Stinson 3 takes the best of the old, and leaves you with a more comfortable, more versatile, and much less-tippy ride.

I use these for ALL my trail runs as I find them much more stable than the ATR in everything but the slop. East Coast AT runner, and these handle the roots, rocks, and technical moments just fine!

    Comments about Mens Hoka One One Stinson 3 Running Shoe:

    Theses shoes are awesome. I thought my running days were over, but these shoes put ten years of life back onto my knees. I had bought lots of expensive shoes over the years hoping they would adequately cushion my knees. HOKA was the only brand that delivered. Granted, I use them primarily for crossfit, and they are not great for squats, etc, but at least now I can run the 400s in between sets. I doubt I will ever buy another brand.

      Absolutely The Best Running Shoe I Have Ever Used

      By No More Pain

      from Dallas Texas

      Comments about Mens Hoka One One Stinson 3 Running Shoe:

      I would highly recommend this shoe to anyone who runs on concrete. I ran on the grass because it became too painful to continue running in the street/city. I tried everything (doctors, custom insoles, etc...). Came across these shoes and EVERYTHING changed. I can run 5 days consecutively on the concrete with absolutely NO pain at all. Changed my life!!!! I usually run about 6-7 miles a day at around 7:19 per mile. I hope this company never goes out of business because they are the holy grail of running shoes!!!

        Training for an ultra marathon. These Stinson 3s provide an incredible amount of cushion and the right amount of support. They make running as close to effortless as is possible. I strongly recommend this model, and Hokas in general.

        Comments about Mens Hoka One One Stinson 3 Running Shoe:

        When I got the shoe I went for a run and the shoe was very comfortable. Even though the shoe has a lot of cushion, it makes you forget about the pain that comes with long distance training (20+ miles). When I ran my first ultra(50k) my feet were very sore since my shoes were more minimal. So I was looking for a high cushioned low drop shoe and the hoka Stinson works! The only problem I had was that the forefoot was a little narrow and my feet are very wide from running in minimal shoes and even barefoot. So I modified the lacing system and the shoes fit much better no and I love that I can still mid-forefoot strike in these too.

        Walking on Marshmellows

        By Eddie Eddie Eddie

        from Chattanooga

        Pros

        • As Good As It Gets

        Cons

          Best Uses

          • Running On Pavement

          Comments about Mens Hoka One One Stinson 3 Running Shoe:

          I tried these on at a retail store because I wanted to know for sure about the comfort and quality of the shoe before investing my money.

          The woman told me that Hoka's were like walking on marshmallows.

          I couldn't help but smile and feel a little giddy at how ACCURATE her words were.

          You get about as much cushioned bounce as possible without the shoes being too bouncy nor too thick with wedged heels.

          I wish HOKA would add an "about us" aspect to their website.
          I'm a connector and now owning about 5 pair of Hoka's, I want to be part of their community and FULLY know the story of the company and it's history.

          Please let your loyal customers feel like a part of the Hoka revolution by knowing your story!

          Raving fan,
          Eddie

            I have been running in the Stinson ATR's for the last year and probably should have been in a new pair a few months ago. I got the Stinson 3's as the replacement show just before running a half marathon and really love the shoe. It is lighter and more comfortable than the Stinson 1 ATR. It has a slightmy different feel on the road but I adjusted quickly and liked the feel. I also ran about 30 seconds faster per mile as the shoe's felt much lighter. I'm not a fast runner to start with but am liking the faster pace on my long runs.

            Comments about Mens Hoka One One Stinson 3 Running Shoe:

            The upper mesh is vastly improved over the Stinson Lite. It is sturdier but still is cool and comfortable. These are more cushiony than the Constants, providing instant pain relief from slightly torn meniscus and irritated leg tendon. I've tried many other brands, but Hoka is the one for me. Especially the Stinsons - I've had Stinson Tarmac (loved it), then Stinson Lite (loved it but the mesh top did not wear well) and now I love these.

            I had a small stroke two years ago and had to start walking. I have walked 2500 miles since then and my HOKA One One shoes have saved my feet. No other shoes were working for me. I wear them every day and get my life-saving walks in every day. I have been totally happy with them. I will keep them coming. Everyone asks me about them and I recommend them to others daily.

              I'm a "fat-guy" runner but I still enjoying running a few days per week -- especially in the sunshine. I picked up the Stinson Tarmac a few years ago (despite how ugly it was)and now the Stinson 3 (easy on the eyes). With a lifetime of knee pain under my belt, I can say honestly say that HOKA saved my running "career".

                I'm on my feet a lot, and have had issues with plantar fasciitis. These shoes help ease the heel pain, and make walking much more comfortable. They were recommended by my podiatrist, and I have to agree that they are a good choice in footwear.
                The only issue I had is that the women's shoes are much too narrow, so I had to get a men's shoe in order to fit my foot width.

                  These shoes feel great, especially for an "older" runner like me (age 42). The combination of cushioning with the fulcrum effect of the thick sole really helped me keep a more efficient stride and derive more power from my core.

                    Comments about Mens Hoka One One Stinson 3 Running Shoe:

                    Since I am getting up in years and miles, I decided that I needed a more cushioned neutral running shoe to protect my joints and reduce the risk of injury. I read about the Hoka One One Stinson 3, and it got good reviews so I ordered a pair. Out of the box, they were obviously different from any pair of running shoes that I have ever owned - the depth of the foam underneath reminded me of 1970s disco shoes! Once they were on and laced, I was amazed at how comfortable and stable they felt. I then took them for a treadmill run of 6 miles and they immediately felt right. The upper is amazingly comfortable without any tight spots or rubbing and with padding in the right places. That thick foam underfoot was surprisingly responsive helping me spring off each step. I have now run a second 6 miles in them, and absolutely love them. I am not the fastest runner, but did some of the second run at a good clip for me (7:00 min/mile or better), and I did not feel the shoes were too heavy or difficult to run in at all - I plan to run a 12-14 mile run in them next, and can't wait. These shoes are incredible, and my muscles and joints feel better after a run than they have in any other pair of running shoes I've owned. While I haven't had them very long, if they end up being as durable as other reviewers have stated, I plan to be in a long-term relationship with these shoes. Great job, Hoka!

                    Does not breath well, becomes water logged on long runs.

                    This shoe is not breathable. On long runs these became very water logged to the point I could not use them on higher mile runs which was the point of the cushioning.

                      I loved the first Stinsons I bought back in 2012 or 2013. While I liked the shoes alot, I also liked the design so much better then. they were cool looking. Today, the shoes look quite dull compared to those from a few years ago. What's up with that? The stiffness of the old Stinsons was superb and made the shoe very comfortable. The upper was better in the old Stinsons too. Why did you change it?

                        made me realize how broken down my present shoes were, widely used brand. I threw them away. not that old, but I never want to wear them again. I purchased a pair for my daughter for her knee problem, as recommended by her therapist, and she loves them;she can tell a difference in her knee after only a few wears. I walk 3 miles 4 days a week.
