Comfort is a priority with them. Same reason New Balance are popular now

Work in healthcare and allot of staff where these. If you are on your feet all day these I'm told are really good. I wanna try them out to hoop in lol last year bottom of my foot started hurting from hooping on concrete all summer and really ain't been the same since so I'm thinking the extra padding might help
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.

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.

I see more 30-40 somethings wearing OnCloud, especially Black and Spanish people, whereas I see the 50+ crowd making up most HOKA wearers around my way. Lot of healthcare professionals and health conscious people in Riverdale

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.

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

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

Literally felt like a brick was strapped to the bottom of my foot. Absolutely no cushioning whatsoever

Bondi 7s some of the most comfortable footwear ever.

Sadly, the Bondi 8s aren't as good.

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.

Look at the Hoka Clifton 8's. They're last years model so theyre on sale right now. That's what I just ordered.

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.
Those OnCloud Eclipse’s feel uncomfortable af…. i hope that nobody falls for the hype of those at all

For those of you who think the Hokas look crazy:

The Saucony Triumph line are another option. Excellent heel lock, good cushioning, ample space in the forefoot, very comfortable.

Also Asics have some great offerings - Gel Kayano 30 have been my go to this past year.

And of course, New Balance. They don't seem to miss, they really do put out a lot of great options.
