    Comments about Mens Hoka One One Conquest Running Shoe:

    I'm a bigger guy (200lb) and find that I run "heavy" Having fought PF since Oct 2013, I've been through 3 different shoe types (thanks RRS VIP return policy)over the past 5 months.

    I've run 3 1/2's and a Tough Mudder over the past 12 months just for some reference. The PF showed up during the last 1/2 marathon :(

    I'm currently training for my first full marathon, BMO Vancouver May 4, 2014

    I do use a slightly modified super feet insert in my shoes, perfect for my over pronation.

    So wanting to keep running I thought I'd try the Hoka's.

    I've got 8 runs for a total of 113km (70miles) in the conquests now. I find them to be perfect for me. Very stable shoe, not squishy and no rolling as some would expect out of a high(er) shoe with more cushion. The cushioning is perfect too for running roads. I feel that I've just now after 113km gotten use to the shoes and my last run (19.3k) I had a hard time holding myself back right around the 16k mark. I felt like I could fly. That moment when everything is working right, that was it for me.

    For me, the Hoka's have allowed me to keep running after trying several other shoes.

    I've read a ton of reviews on the Hoka shoes and it honestly seems to me that those who are sceptical of them or think they are not stable probably have not tried them. These shoes are just as stable as the Asic Kayano's I ran in and more stable than the Saucony Triumphs I was using prior to the Hokas.

    I find them very comfortable, just the right amount of cushion for me, and a very solid, stable shoe. I found the fit to be perfect to my 9-1/2 foot. Toe box is just right for me. Didn't like the speed laces but that's a minor detail.

    I will say that the inserts (like most supplied with running shoes) offer very little arch support so if you're having issues with over pronation, try some better inserts (I like super feet).

      I like the soft ride for my 195 lb frame. I like the low heel to toe drop as that is what I'm used to now. I think they will be great for marathon training. I hope the toe box breaks in some and widens out. They feel a little narrow and I consider my feet to be average with "D" size.

          I am moving from the Newtons to these amazingly comfortable shoes. I weigh about 195 and usually take a pounding when I run. These are hands down the most comfortable shoes I have EVER worn. I only have 5 runs on them but I am hooked. I usually experience hip and low back pain after running but not with these bad boys. They are really light considering how bulky they appear. Im a fan.

          Comments about Mens Hoka One One Conquest Running Shoe:

          Tried Hoka Bondi2s and loved them on long runs. Keeps my knees happy, and the Conquest are very similar so I ordered them. The tops of the shoe where the tongue connects to the shoe rubbed my foot and gave me a blister since there was no padding on the tongue. Tried adjusting speed laces and no luck. Had to send them back and get Bondi3. Love the Hokas, but my somewhat skinny upper foot didn't work with that tongue design.

          Thankful for the RRS return policy since I didn't notice this until I ran more that a couple miles.

          Comments about Mens Hoka One One Conquest Running Shoe:

          I've put over a hundred miles on my Conquests so feel I can now write a balanced review.
          Purchased my first pair half a size bigger as suggested online, but they feel half a size too big! LOL
          Ran over a hundred miles in the first pair while waiting for my regular size to ship to me (8.5) The shoes feel big and bulky, there's no getting away from the fact that they are. They feel heavier than their 10oz weight. Cushioning is great as you would expect, however when I put on my new pair compared to my first pair with just over 100 miles on them, the difference in cushioning was startling! The older pair feeling much less cushioned than the new pair. This gives me the heads up that these shoes will not last more than 250-300 miles for me and I'm no heavyweight (5'10-175lbs)
          I have a high arch and wide feet and these shoes feel slightly tight fitting, not overly uncomfortable but I would've like the option for a wider fitting.
          Definitely not as 'awkward looking' as I thought they would be when wearing them.
          Interestingly I have had a mild case of shin splints while wearing the Conquests and have just taken a couple of weeks off. If the shin splints return, the Conquests may have to go back.
          Anyone else had a similar problem with these shoes?
          Difficult to say if I would recommend or not, I guess it's a try it and buy it scenario.

          Comments about Mens Hoka One One Conquest Running Shoe:

          First off, I am a 5'5" 145 lbs triathlete. So not exactly heavy but i do have 2 ligament damage on my knees so I needed something to cushion the impact when running. My go to pair before Hokas are the Brooks Ghost 5, love it and still use but for longer distances 8+ miles I use Hoka Bondi 2. It worked for me, no more knee pain and feel less sore overall after long runs.

          However, I do feel that the Bondi 2 was too squirmy and unstable for me. And due to my wide 2E feet I reaped open the inner side. The mesh material was not strong enough, it did stretch wide for my feet but reaped open. The sole too did not last long.

          After reading what the Hoka Conquest would offer me, I tried on a pair. I did not size up and went with my regulat 8.5 size. When I first got it, initial fit was a tad tight in width and I could not make the speed laces work comfortably but I could tell that it is STABLE! I wanted this to work for me so I did the following...

          1. Removed speed laces...
          2. Used my favorite elastic speed laces but skipped 2 bottom loops
          3. Use thick socks and broke in it by running 3-4 milers and just walking around the house to widen it

          It is now stretched wider that fits perfect for my feet. The material seems stronger and looks like it will hold up better that the mesh in Bondi 2.

          I have a total of about 50 miles and I love it! STABLE, as cushioned as the Bondis, better sole and overall materials, promotes mid foot strike for me, rocker profile works for me as well.

          Gave it 4 starts because of the speed laces issue!

            This is a great (possibly the best ever) shoe for long road or trail runs. Compared to other Hoka models, the Conquest is a more stable/firm riding shoe(still with plenty of cushioning). I feel more secure coming down fast, steep, technical trails, and after 10+ hilly miles, my legs/feet are now ready for more. Yes, the Conquest was designed for the road, but it seems right at home on the trail. Are these shoes magical or something?

                          I read all the hype, so was inclined not to purchase Hoka One One shoes - I've been running for 36 years now, so I've seen it all - but on the personal recommendation of a friend, I pre-ordered the HOO Conquest before Christmas - they arrived at the end of January - out of the box, the most comfortable shoe I've ever worn, hands down - I had a pair of Arthur Lydiard shoes ~ 1981 which used to be my all-time favorites - the HOOC's have exceeded those - takes a little getting used to the dynamic of this shoe, suggest a modest test run at first - but the 2nd and 3rd runs felt like they were old friends - amazed at the light weight after looking at them - I think this shoe is suitable to runners of all profiles - I'm "hookaed", er hooked!

                            Had the Conquests a week now and have put almost 40 miles on them.
                            Great cushioning for those long runs, my legs feel good after a couple of hours in these shoes.
                            Although only 10oz, these shoes feel heavier than they actually are, that's a lot of cushioning underfoot!
                            I ordered half a size larger than my normal shoe and wished I had not. I have wide feet and normally choose wide fitting shoes, but the Hoka's are wide enough even for me.
                            I'll probably order another pair in my regular size.

                              Comfortable, not as big as I thought. Actually true to size. Great for heavy guys. Very stable!

                                Had been running in the Bondi model but found it a little bit too flexible. Very happy to say that the Conquest are a great combo of support and cushioning. I've put several runs in on them now and I couldn't be happier with the fit and performance. For sizing I bought the same size that I previously wore in Asics.
