Forward lean

By Ironman Dan

from Atlanta, GA

Comments about Mens Hoka One One Vanquish Running Shoe:

I've been running in the HOKA Stinson Lite for training and the Clifton for racing and speed work. I like the way the Clifton is an early stage meta rocker and was looking for another road model to train in and do my long distance running in. The Vanquish really fits what I was looking for. The early stage meta rocker in the Vanquish, gives me my forward lean I'm looking for and keeps me from doing my normal heel strike that I'm prone to do. This is a great training shoe but it also runs great while doing track workouts! It's a nice addition to my quiver of HOKA shoes!

    Might prefer the lesser stability

    By Walter K

    Pros

    • Overall Really Enjoy Hoka

    • Maybe A Little Too Firm

    Best Uses

    • Cushion
    • Road

    Comments about Mens Hoka One One Vanquish Running Shoe:

    Still trying out. More firm than Clifton's, which I'm thinking I may prefer the the ride better with Clifton but Vanquish may be more durable. Either way, good dilemma.

      • Training runs

      Comments about Mens Hoka One One Vanquish Running Shoe:

      I had a hip injury 5 months ago, took 2 months off started running in the Vanquish ( I was in the Cliftons but they are too lightweight for me, maybe if you only race in the Cliftons but not a fan of training in them because they are so light ). I was looking for a durable and soft training shoe. I. 6ft 2, and weight 178lbs. I've been running in the vanquish and just ordered my second pair and I also just ran a 1:11:26 half marathon this past weekend. So thanks to Hoka I'm setting PRs! The Vanquish is an amazing shoe!

      Love the look and comfort

      By Bernie The Traveler

      from Louisville KY

      Comments about Mens Hoka One One Vanquish Running Shoe:

      I've been wearing different Hoka shoes for about 5 years and really like them. I am a bigger guy and have had some plantar fasciitis problems off and an. The cushion of the Hoka shoes really help.

      This shoe feels a little more solid than some of the earlier models, while still very comfortable.

      I love the look, I have the blue color and it is really sharp!

      High-end Sports Car of Shoes

      By Phoenix Endurance CEO

      from Wilmington, NC

      Pros

      • Good road feel
      • Great looking shoe
      • Superb Fit And Support

      Cons

        Best Uses

        • Distance Racer
        • Distance trainer

        Comments about Mens Hoka One One Vanquish Running Shoe:

        I spent two days in the Hoka One One Vanquish. First day was the usual walk-a-about and the second was an early morning five mile run. During the entire two days one thing kept coming to mind… sexy high-end sport car! This shoe looks great and I really appreciate the styling. Just like a high-end sports car the fit is snug and very supportive in both the heel and toe box. I have a narrow foot and this was a perfect fit for me - I absolutely loved it. One other non-issue was zero hot spots. Last "sports car" comparison is that it has more feel for the road and is very responsive yet maintains its Hoka roots in that it provides a substantial amount of cushion. It weighs in at a comparable 11oz to the Bondi 4 and identical 4mm drop however it's a more responsive shoe and provides a little more toe-off rebound. I really enjoyed my time on the road this morning in this shoe and look forward to many more miles to come.

          After a recommendation from a friend, I tried HOO shoe. I'm 6ft 2inches, 220lbs, and have socially run for years. My Asics were breaking down too soon and losing support as I trained for distance runs (10+ miles) With no snow this winter, my mileage is way up, and the comfort and support of these shoes is awesome. On sale too! Overall, I'm very satisfied with the shoe, colors not my thing, these are cool looking. My daughter just ordered her first pair!!!

          from Texas

          Comments about Mens Hoka One One Vanquish Running Shoe:

          Not much to share, I tried them on and knew immediately they were too tight across the ball of my foot. Sent them back, hopefully without issues. On a positive note, did return to the Hoka One One website and ordered the Bondi,11.5EE which arrived earlier this week, spent a day walking in them, looking forward to getting a few runs in with them and we will see how they do.

            The Vanquish is narrow, but the fit is perfect. The only negative is there needs to be more rubber tread on the sole. That is common on the Conquest since they have the same design. I like the feel of the shoe better than the Conquest.

                Comments about Mens Hoka One One Vanquish Running Shoe:

                At first it seemed that it took more effort to run. Not so much now. I think I needed to get use to the lesser heel to toe angle. I went from 10mm to 4mm.
                At first I thought my Hokas were just ok. But after switching back and forth with my other shoes I must say that I'm becoming more and more of a fan.
                I've only had them one month. Need a little more time before I give them five stars.

                This is my fourth pair of Hoka's as I have the Stinson, Bondi 3, and Conquest also. I use my shoes for elliptical cardio and walking. I like the Vanquest best for my cardio on the elliptical and Bondi for walking. The Vanquest is my overall favorite shoe as it feels more snug and controlling. Overall I only wear Hoka's now.

                  I tried the conquest before the vanquish. I found the vanquish to be lighter than what I was expecting. I haven't ran in them too much yet, but I am hopeful that I just found my PERFECT shoe.

                  I have two pair of Hoka's the Vanqish and the Bondi. Both great running shoes the Bondi has more cushion than the Vanqish. I suffer from plantars facitis so the Bondi feels better to me running on hard surfaces. I use the Vanqish on the treadmill and going to the gym, it a great shoe stable but not quite as much squish as others in Hoka's line. Looks good too!
