    Comments about Mens Hoka One One Vanquish 3 Running Shoe:

    Worst update ever! I am addicted to Hokas and have owned over 20 pairs in the last few years. My favorite of all was the Vanquish 2 which was an awesome shoe and one for the top 4 shoes on the market last year. So what did Hoka do... changed it. And changed it for the worse. The Vanquish 2 had optimal cushioning, decent support, and awesome rocker. After using two different pairs of the new version (Vanquish 3) for 15 and 20 miles respectively, it seems Hoka has removed a ton of cushioning and eliminated the rocker all together. The new version is SUPER narrow and long, almost a half size too long, but a half size too narrow. It's so "long" that is slaps the ground on foot-strike even for a mid-foot striker like me. I am VERY disappointed with this update and I'm now finding all of the version 2 online as I can. Why not just keep one of the best selling road shoes the same?!?

      Comments about Mens Hoka One One Vanquish 3 Running Shoe:

      I've been suffering through horrible plantar fasciitis for the past six months. I stretch and have tried other remedies to mixed results. The pain was bad enough that I have gone through several pairs of shoes to try and find one that alleviated the pain so I could walk better.

      I picked up the Vanquish 3 and immediately felt less pain in my step. Especially in the heel. Every PF case is unique but for me I have found a shoe that provides relief.

      If this continues I fully intend to swap out all my other shoes for Hokas. These are absolutely amazing.

      If you're thinking about the money you're spending on this shoe think less and get ready to enjoy complete comfort no matter what you use this shoe for. Whether it's running, wearing it for comfort, I cannot tell you how much of a difference it's made in my life and the quality of my life. By this shoe immediately if you stumbled across it.

      This shoe is great, love the cushioning. I feel less pain in my feet when I use this shoe. Definitely my favorite pair. But, the upper started to tear. I'v run with this shoe for about 50 km, the upper pattern on the inner side began to chip out. But it's not affecting the shoe performance till the date I wrote the review. But at least it affects my eyes, lol.

        Comments about Mens Hoka One One Vanquish 3 Running Shoe:

        I am new to Hoka One One. For years I have been wearing Saucony, Adidas, Newton and Altras. About a year ago I was at a running store whom recommended that I try Hoka. I took one look at the sneaker (Bondi) and refused. I tried the Clifton 3 out and have been wearing them since. About a month ago I bought the Vanquish 3. At first I couldn't feel a difference between them and the Clifton 3 beside the weight difference. As I was comparing my runs on Garmin connect I noticed a difference in my run stats. When I ran in the Vanquish 3, my cadence went up without me thinking about it and my HR stayed lower longer among a few other changes like vertical oscillation. I attributed it to being more comfortable in these sneakers. Bottom line, they are definitely worth a try!

        I got this shoe based on my podiatrist's recommendation for a bruised metatarsal head. Zero pain when using these shoes -- fantastic! Love everything about it -- but the salesperson recommended a half size larger than I wear, and he was right. Even half size bigger, the toe box still is a little snug. Not too tight, but not roomy. Highly recommend if you're looking for cushy.

        Comments about Mens Hoka One One Vanquish 3 Running Shoe:

        Not a big fan. All in all this is a good shoe, but the food back I was given made this shoe sound close to the original Clifton. Not close. The bottom of the shoe is stiff. Not abnormally stiff but nothing like the Original Clifton. The second part may just apply to me and others with big feet but my heel slides out on every stride. I have tried every trick I know including a runners loop in the laces to keep my heel locked in and it just seems that the heel bed is too shallow.

                Shoe feels narrow and I have narrow feet. I was a shoe tester for New Balance and was measured as narrow feet. The shoe is not a cushy as my Bondi 4's and not a rocker set up. I took the mid-sole out and replaced it with one of my use Bondi 4's and the shoe feels much better. I'll be trying to stretch the toe box out some. The sole treads are somewhat slippery on wet pavement and concrete...be aware.

                Right out of the box and out on the road. If you like a cushioned shoe and are a neutral runner, this is the best I have found. I am a large runner (6ft3in and 220 lbs); at 69 years old, I need something easy on the joints. This is the one.

                  Comments about Mens Hoka One One Vanquish 3 Running Shoe:

                  Coming from the Clifton 3, which was my go-to shoe for over a year, the Vanquish 3 is far more responsive and springy. Firmer, for sure. 15 miles in, I'm very pleased. Clifton is pillowy soft, this shoe feels like it'll last quite a bit longer, and the responsiveness is evident as soon as you take off.

                  One of the most comfortable running shoe I've ever purchased. Great cushioning. Superb styling (navy and gold, school colors). The laces have some elasticity which keeps them tight so you don't have to worry about stopping and re-tieing your shoes. This is the first pair of Hoka One One shoes for me, but it won't be the last!

                  This is my third pair. Comfortable and well cushioned. I put a lot of miles on my shoes. Great shoe. I hope they continue this model.
