That’s so crazy… I literally have my first pair of Hoka’s coming in the mail tomorrow. I didn’t even know they were on some hypebest sh1t, I just needed a good pair of running shoes. This the second time today I’ve seen Hokas brought up on boxden lol

Been wanting to cop a pair but it's just that big a$s "HOKA" on the side that turns me off
emoji


This reminds me of On Cloud... Which, btw, I was completely blown away by how uncomfortable those are
emoji


Literally felt like a brick was strapped to the bottom of my foot. Absolutely no cushioning whatsoever
emoji
On Clouds are for rich white people who care more about the brand being “trendy” than the actual quality of the shoe. It’s insane how many people I see wearing them around here despite the fact that they aren’t that well reviewed as athletic shoes.

I got my first pair of Hoka’s coming in the mail tomorrow. I’m pumped to try them out.

I work in surgery and all of my colleagues wear them. They swear they're the best when it comes to comfort.

I haven't purchased a pair as of yet but may pull the trigger if I find a pair that I like.

Swear my wife is the only person on earth that's said these shoes are uncomfortable lol.

I'm gonna cop a pair to run in. My Adidas running shoes have treated me right, but I'm looking for a change.
They might in the beginning because they were for me.

Appearantly I had a bad gait and it changed the way I walk for the better x10.

I'm normally a retro jordan/yeezy/air max/990, 992, 993, 996, 997, 998 new balance guy. But I'm considering a pair of Hokas. I've hit the age where alot of the trendier shoes hurt my feet. New balances work great for me though

Just got my Hoka Clifton 8’s in the mail today. They’re very high quality, light and definitely a stable running/walking shoe but they’re not for my foot. The arch support is way too aggressive and digs into my arch. I’m going with the ASICS Gel Nimbus instead. It’s BY FAR the softest and most comfortable shoe I’ve ever worn.

I wanted slides that were comfortable while cutting my hair, and something that I could put on to run errands.
I found the bodega collab to try them out. I loved them so much that I copped a 2nd pair to stash. I’m glad I did cause they doubled in price.

How old are you? I can tell you past a certain age it don't matter what you do, the concrete turns it's back on you lol. It's either gonna be your knees or your feet.

Once I hit 35, my knee started randomly hurting, popping and then slipping the day after I'd hoop outside. Didn't have any of that hooping inside though.
Just turned 40 in April lol so I've accepted my hooping days over. I tore all the ligaments on my left knee when I was younger like 27 but played at Xsport damn near every night for hours non stop for years then moved to New spot too far from indoor gym so started hooping outside in the summer and bottom of foot started killing me was thinking plantar fasciitis so annoying and haven't played much at all in over a year

If you want to invest in Hoka shoes, parent company stock symbol is DECK. Another shoe brand coming up is ON shoes - public as well ONON. If you have a couple Gs laying around - put some $$ into these and double up in 5 years.
