    Comments about Womens Hoka One One Stinson Tarmac Running Shoe:

    I'm an ultra runner and wanted so bad to love the hokas. I'm always looking for more cushion. My first run I only ran 6 miles to try them out. Running uphill you can't get spring and I felt my natural form changing leaving my calf, hip, and lower back hurting. I thought maybe it was just a bad day so I tried a 14 mile run. Within the first few miles the same things hurt. I finished the run but packed them up for return. My fellow ultra runners love them but they don't work for me. I gave 3 stars because walking around they felt great just not for my running.

        Comments about Womens Hoka One One Stinson Tarmac Running Shoe:

        I am a true HOKA lover. I started my HOKA running last year with the Bondi, coming from Asics Nimbus that I had ran in for several years. I love the Asics, still do for just wearing around, but I have some sensitive nerves in the ball and toe area of my left foot that would drive me crazy on long runs. I was averaging 250 miles per pair at that point before it became unbearable. So I went searching on the internet and took a chance. I have almost 400 miles on my Bondi's , they are retired from running but still have all that nice cushion and do not feel broke down in the least. ( I am currently using them to walk my self too and from PT, because the are a wide platform and absorb the shock so well, for a lovely MTB wreck. I have a L1,2,3,transvers process fracture. YAY :( ) So what I am getting around to is, I did feel the Bondi's were a bit wide for me, lots of room, but no foot pain at all! I wanted to give the Stinson's a try, so after Christmas I ordered the trail model knowing I needed a new pair for this season. They fit my feet so well, that I ordered the road version for here at home. OMG! the fit, responsiveness and over all WOW factor in this model is everything I have looked for in a running shoe. I have found that the Bondi's are a bit harder to keep a faster pace with, The Stinson's, in my 4 runs I had before my crash, were very easy to roll with, if you get my drift. I was shocked at my mile times when I checked my Garmin. Looking forward to the day I can start running again, my shoes are calling , but I have to tell them to wait a bit longer. :) I would highly recommend them. If you have never ran in them, give them a few runs before you say no way. Your body will thank you, and yes its true, recovery is amazing!

        I'm a distance runner focused on short ultra marathons. This is the perfect shoe to help nurse my injuries and protect me from leg fatigue. I have been wearing for Hokas for over a year now and I am hooked! Best distance shoe I've worn. I have the trail version too.

          I love these shoes - great for running on roads or trails - its kind of like having a full suspension mountain bike on your feet. My one negative is that I am a supinator/under-pronator and this shoe is allowing my worst foot to supinate more than my other shoes. I still wouldn't trade them in for another!!

            7 weeks ago I tore my hamstring and havent been able to get back to running to train for an Ironman race in June. Saw these, tried them and wham, back into it. They cushion the impact so much my hamstring isnt sore, my leg fatigue is less and recovery much faster. I liked the Stinson Tarmac as they cushtioned more than the Bondi under the ball of the foot. I needed one full size less (8.5 instead of 9.5). Cant wear thick socks with them but who cares my feet and legs arent sore any more. They are light weight and I think they look good too. Keep up the nazzy colours, everyone's doing colour nowadays.

              I am an ultra-runner and running on any kinds of trails. I've tried many trail shoes and this is the best I've ever had!!! I have to go 1 size down compared to my regular running shoes, but they fit perfectly. I put my insoles and have no complaints for arch support. I just ran 100K race (+15 hours) with these shoes and had no problems. Some people say wearing these shoes are like being on marshmallows, but I don't really feel that way, probably because I don't wear minimum shoes regularly. I feel less impact to my knees and back. You can't do heel-strike with these shoes, so you can learn how to run with forefoot/midfoot. Good traction even on sandy/rocky slippery terrain. No pain on brutally rocky trails. I would never go back other shoes but these HOKA ONE ONE!!!

              I was so excited to try these--but you can have them back. Not enough arch support, heel very sloppy--felt like a man's shoe. The cushioning was nice for the first mile, then it felt like I was running on cushioned lead weights. The shoe is ugly as well, but I was willing to look past that. Sorry, going back to my Nike Pegasus--no Hokas for me!
