better but not as good as the original

By Jon P.

from Salt Lake City

Pros

  • Durable
  • EXCELLENT TRACTION
  • Good Toe Box Room
  • Non-gimmicky Lacing Syste

Cons

  • Rmat Is A Little Firm

Best Uses

  • Rocky trails
  • Ultra's

Comments about Mens Hoka One One Mafate 4 Running Shoe:

This shoe has a good sized toe box unlike most other Hoka's. The RMAT is a little stiff for me, as I am a huge fan of the old Mafate's and Bondi's with the pure EVA midsole. The RMAT doesn't seem to be able to impart teh same rockered feel as the EVA shoes. These work fine, but lack the plush ride of past mafate's.

Excellent Comfirt for Trail Running and Hiking

By Pistachio

from Phoenix, Arizona

Comments about Mens Hoka One One Mafate 4 Running Shoe:

These shoes are very comfortable and stable for trail running. The sole appears to be more durable than the Mafate Speed, which was worn through rather quickly and I believe prematurely. I like the beefier toe area which is more abrasion resistant. I have also used the Mafate 4 on an extended hike of 11 miles and they were truly light on the feet but supportive. The cushinging is very good for the intended purpose. I also prefer the traditional lacing approach rather than the speed lacing on the Mafate Speed. This is my 4th pair of Hokas, including road running variety, and I believe that the shoe engineering and construction continue to improve.
Mafate 4 is highly recommended.

    Comments about Mens Hoka One One Mafate 4 Running Shoe:

    I rode the BIke Leg of an Ironman Triathlon, 112 miles, along side "The Iron Cowboy" to support his efforts , he is doing his 47th Ironman in 47 days,( Look him Up ) he's Incredible ! So we are about to finish the ride and he says are you going to join me on the run ? I say James, i have'nt ran in 22 months due to a foot injury to the metatarsal ligaments in my right foot, incurred while rock climbing. He says how about running 5k with me, my daughter says she wants to run that. So i strap on the Mafate 4's straight out of the box. I ran the 5k with my daughter and the " Iron Cowboy" & never had any foot pain. Fantastic shoe, already ordered the new hiking boot they just came out with. Great Shoe, it's keeping my middle aged body moving forward down the trails here in the Rocky Mountains.

    Need comfort for feet doing hard. long exercise?

    By DXF

    from Poconos in PA and Amelia Island in FL.

    Pros

    • Cushioning
    • Fitting
    • Much Less Foot Soreness
    • Stability

    Cons

      Best Uses

      • Walking

      Comments about Mens Hoka One One Mafate 4 Running Shoe:

      Focused exercise with walking/hiking for miles and over one hour 4-6 times per week. Foot recovery time from soreness is very good. So far no complaints after about 3 weeks use. I'm hoping for at least 6 months of similar results. Less than 6 months of effective results would lower my rating.

      A home run!

      By Mogie

      from Drumhelle, AB, Canada

      Comments about Mens Hoka One One Mafate 4 Running Shoe:

      I've run in Hokas for the last 4 years - Bondi Bs, Stinson Evo, Stinson Tramac, Mafate 3, Clifton, Challenger - and have loved them all. But fit has always been a issue. I am a mens 10.5 in every other brand of shoe I own, but in Hokas I always had to buy a size 11 because of the narrow toe box (the exception is the Challenger and Clifton, which fit true to size). The new Mafate 4 fits much like the Clifton. The 10.5 is perfect, perhaps even a little generous, but I prefer that extra room in an ultra-distance shoe. The materials in the upper are very nice; this is a plush shoe. The RMAT material is not as soft as the Tarmac or Bondi, but still makes for a nice ride. Very, very happy with these shoes. Home run, Hoka!

      Upgrade from recent Mafate versions

      By Pathfinder

      from Monument, CO

      Pros

      • Aggressive sole
      • Improved Tongue
      • Improved Upper
      • Wide toe box

      Cons

      • Laces could be longer

      Best Uses

      • Trail running

      Comments about Mens Hoka One One Mafate 4 Running Shoe:

      Mafate's and Stinson ATRs have been my go to trail shoe for several years. In recent years the toe box has narrowed and uppers have become less robust leading to failure / rips as early as 200 miles into a shoe. The Mafate 4 goes back to some of the classic Hoka features - larger toe box and more robust upper. I used this recently at Run Rabbit Run 100 and had my old Mafate's ready to go in case of problems, but never switched back - had them on the whole race and my feet loved it.

      Great Trail Shoe

      By Sticky Heels

      from Sheridan, Wyoming

      Pros

      • Cushion
      • Responsive
      • Stable

      Cons

      • No Eyelets Just Holes

      Best Uses

      • Trail Or Pavement

      Comments about Mens Hoka One One Mafate 4 Running Shoe:

      I just wore out my Stinson ATRs with 400 miles, realized I needed a little more stability and the Mafate 4 is the choice. The cushion ride of the Stinson ATR was a revelation to me. The Mafate 4 seems to have just as much cushion but also amazing lateral stability. I feel more response from the mid-sole, and running on the decent is incredibly comfortable. My expectations were exceeded. I was surprised there are no eyelets, just holes for laces, not sure why, otherwise I would have rated 5 stars.

      Just ran one of the toughest race courses in our region. This shoe was a key factor in my success. Rocky terrain, steep uphills and fast downs were no problem for this shoe.

      Great shoe~

      By butcheeboy

      from Northern NM

      Comments about Mens Hoka One One Mafate 4 Running Shoe:

      This is an amazing trail shoe for big days with lots of vertical. Handles mud well with new aggressive Vibram outsole that is far better engineered than previous models. Delivers a plush, quad sparing ride. I have a high arch/high volume foot and replaced the Ortholite insole with a thinner one from an old pair of stinson ATRs to dial in the fit. Size 10 weighs 14oz on my digital scale. This and a pair of Huakas makes for a pretty nice quiver of shoes that can handle anything I can dish out. Thanks Hoka!

        Best Uses

        • Hiking

        Comments about Mens Hoka One One Mafate 4 Running Shoe:

        I'm wearing these as a hiking shoe. I hiked the John Muir Trail last fall in a pair of Stenson 3s. Loved it. But the lugs were too small and soft. Soles were very bald by the end. Wanted to stick with Hokas, but wanted a model with more robust sole lugs. Didn't want the waterproof hiking shoes. I wanted the lightweight breathable body of the runners. I called Hoka support and was given four models that would fit my desires. The best seemed to be the Mafate 4. I've hiked about 100 miles in them so far. They're great. Love the traction and the fit. My only complaint is that I wish they had the cushioning on the tongue that the Stinsen 3 has. If they're still going strong when I hit 4-500 miles I'll be a happy camper.

        • Trail running

        Comments about Mens Hoka One One Mafate 4 Running Shoe:

        This is seriously the best Hoka Trial shoe out there. Not sure why people would think its narrow in some of the reviews I've read cause they must have some of the widest feet out there. I have super wide feet, pronate and I can't find any other trail shoes that fit me better. The toe box is wide and they've replaced their old thin low quality insoles with a new supportive one that really does do a great job at traction as you bomb downhill. Even though its a bit heavy, I haven't had an issue with speed as I find the balance and traction being some of the best I have ever experienced. Lastly, the quality on this beast is AWESOME, I own 4 other pairs of Hoka's and this is my Tank. Man Hoka you did so good on this one I'm a loyal fan forever! Look forward to running my first Ultra in this one!

          Comments about Mens Hoka One One Mafate 4 Running Shoe:

          First Hoka shoes, transition from nb Leadville, 4 stars because heavy shoe, overall comfortable to me, can't compare to other Hoka, long runs feels great (10 miles plus), remember this shoes aren't made for speed running, more on relax side. Drop is 4mm consider that your foot will have high center of gravity due to cushion. Up and down the trails traction is good. Ok for mid foot or fore foot strikers, in my case made some abrasions on my skin due to high elevation of cushioning but after putting some miles I'm doing ok. Wished can compare to other Hoka next time will order other model and update. If you are looking for cushioning shoes and relief from foot pain (plantar fasciitis, injuries, etc) this shoes do the trick.

          better with room for improvment

          By busted up feet

          from Northern WI

          Comments about Mens Hoka One One Mafate 4 Running Shoe:

          Thanks for a WIDE, Roomy, trail shoe. I really wanted the 3 back, the 4 is not the 3 but an improvement to the speed. I find the 4 to be the widest Hoka I've tried, its a bit stiffer sole than the 3, but nice. I prefer 13.5 but that option is not available now so I went with 14, its about a 1/2 size too big.....go figure.
          I will purchase more as they are my best option.
