Comments about Womens Hoka One One Speed Instinct Trail Running Shoe:

Loving my instincts that I've had for a few weeks now. They are true to size and super light-weight. I appreciate the weight because of the time I spend running the in the mountains. Seems like Hoka has nailed the toe box sizing too. There is plenty of room in there for my toes to grip and push during climbs. Likewise, there's the same quality support for flying down hills that Hoka has always provided. Thumbs up and a fist bump for these shoes.

Comments about Womens Hoka One One Speed Instinct Trail Running Shoe:

I love the color of these sneaker and Hoka is great for my plantar fasciitis. These are the only sneakers I can run in, pain free. This pair is no different.

Here's the problem - there is this plastic sticking out inside the shoe that is directly on top of your toes. If you look at the top of the sneaker where the orange ends and the dark purple begins but inside the shoes, is this uncomfortable strip of plastic that sticks into your toes. I like to wear my sneakers without socks, but you cannot do that with these sneakers, because of that strip. Even with socks, it sticks into your toes.

If it wasn't for that, these sneakers would be perfect.

Insole is HOT, but the rest is fine

Comments about Womens Hoka One One Speed Instinct Trail Running Shoe:

The shoes ride like the Clayton, but I thought the included Ortholite insole, though cushy, was to hot. I had to size up half a size (to avoid toe squish) and bought the men's version because the women's colors are terrible as usual. I normally wear a women's 8.5 and I bought a men's 7.5. I changed out the insole for a more ventilated and lower profile one from a retired pair of shoes and the shoe functioned much better. The rubber on the sole is super grippy and I like how it goes up the outside of the shoe a bit like a fat tire.

    I have mid foot arthritis and usually wear the big ole' hokas. I have sprained my ankle too many times. Decided on these shoes because they are low profile. I just finished running a 50 K and am soin love iwth these shoes. I have already bought another pair. I highly recommend them for trail running.

          Have to say I hated the Instincts the first time I ran in them. After putting a few miles on them though I am in love! They got me through a 13 mile trail run over rocks, roots and stream crossings with no problems. Guess they just needed that initial break in period.

          Comments about Womens Hoka One One Speed Instinct Trail Running Shoe:

          I wanted to like this shoe. I've been trying to find a new shoe to love since the Kailua was discontinued. This shoe makes my feet HOT and my legs tired. They don't breathe, and the sole is more rigid than you'd expect. The biggest issue is with the height of the toe box. There's plenty of room for right to left splay of your toes, but NO room to move vertically. The top of the shoe rests on top of my big toe nail, and NO, the shoe is not too small. I have about 1/2 and inch of room to the front.

          Loved these right out the gate! Perfect blend of cushioning and responsiveness on mixed terrain. These Speed Instinct's are now my go-to's over my Hoka Challengers and Brooks PureGrit.

            Comments about Womens Hoka One One Speed Instinct Trail Running Shoe:

            I use this for occasional road running and found the shoe to work well for me on shorter routes since I use the Constant 2 for my longer runs where I definitely need the cushioning (10 miles or more). In all fairness, I have not tried the shoe on longer than a 6 mile run, but still felt no adverse affects.

              I wore these twice during a hike/ jog on a couple of different trails. Nearly got blisters, felt like my ankle was going to roll, the heel slips out, my toes are crammed. Too narrow. I'm going back to Altras. Sorry hoka I wanted to like you.
