Hoka One One Challenger ATR:

Hoka One OneCost: $130.00-$160.00

Pros:   Light (I mean extremely light), cushioned ride

Cons: Unstable, too cushioned for some, creates high profile

 Overall:   Because of the added cushion, my feet rode very high in the ATR’s, making foot strikes on uneven terrain very unstable and uncomfortable.  My ankles and feet were tossed from side to side on every uneven step, putting a great deal of pressure on the outsides of my feet.

Don’t get me wrong, Hoka One One is a great brand, and has worked wonders for so many runners.  I believe they put out a solid product.  The construction and quality was great, the fit and functionality (for me) was not.  Based on my experience, I would only feel comfortable using these shoes on groomed, flat trails.  Unfortunately, these will not be my new go-to trail shoes.
