The Hoka One One Men's Challenger ATR Shoe is a cushioned running shoe for hitting the trails. The lightweight shoe features Early-Stage Meta-Rocker to propel you along the uneven path, with a 29mm heel that moves smoothly into the 24mm forefoot.

Nice!I bought these specifically for trail running. I'd seen a couple of good reviews and decided Challenger ATR was the right shoe. Note: It was not a question of Hoka or not, just which Hoka. I love the shoe. The feel is consistent with everything I have come to expect from Hoka. If I had one design issue, it would be the tongue is kind of "wonky". What I mean is; it's very thin and it likes to wander. Very different from what I experience with my Valors which I run in all of the time. (Maybe a future update?) Still, if you are looking for a great, fairly light and extremely comfortable shoe for the trails, this one is going to be hard to beat.

Great shoe, but QC still need tighteningI ordered these shoes as a replacement for a pair of Huaka, which had a defect whereby overlays had started peeling off after a mere 100 miles of mild use. There is no doubt the Challenger ATR is a great shoe, in the same line as the Clifton, but that new pair of shoes has a smaller cosmetic defect. See the attached pictures for the worst paint job ever! ;) So, the shoes are great, but HOKA needs to slow down a bit, tighten QC and not spoil the great market opportunity they currently have. Sure, time-to-market is important in business. But, if you achieve it at the cost of product quality, you risk to spoil the opportunity entirely.

The danger of buying on-lineI had purchased and wore out two pairs of Challengers. Great fit for me - wide toe box and comfortable. I didn't think the slight name change of adding the ATR would matter, but it changed the whole dynamic of the shoe. I ordered two pair on-line and when they were delivered I knew, as soon as I opened the boxes that I had a problem. The shoe was a good half size longer and the toe box was narrow. I tried on both pair then immediately slipped them back into the box and returned them. I'll need to go into a store and try on other models and brands to find something similar to the "old" Challengers. What's the old saying, "if it ain't broke, don't fit it."

Give a runner the right shoes and they can conquer the worldI initially laughed at Hoka's because of their look and big soles....they reminded me of the Skechers shape ups. But as runner you can't care about how your shoes look, you have to care about how your feet feel in the shoe and then you can worry about the color. Going with performance the Hoka Challenger ATR 1 & 2 deliver get results and strength. To finish my review of the shoe, I will modify a quote made by Marilyn Monroe, "Give a 'runner' the right shoes, and 'they' can conquer the world". One day I hope to become a Hoka ambassador as travel the world competing in road and trail races! Keep the Hoka's coming. - Adrian Amaral

Meets expectations for below average qualityThis is the third model of Hoka trail shoes I have owned and the results are the same. 5 starts for cushioning, but below average quality. The soles wear out quickly or just fall apart. My wife and I both have a pair of the Challenger ATR's and have experienced different quality issues. Both shoes showed abnormal wear within 30 miles of hiking which is typical of all the Hoka shoes I've owned. Within 100 miles, one sole started to come apart. On one shoe, the tongue pulled apart. Another issue is the sides of the shoes cracked and split open. I'd like to say this was unusual, but it's happened to all the Hoka shoes I've owned.

My third Pair!I use the Hoka One One Challenger ATR for road and trail running. This is my third pair. I switch daily between shoes to get the maximum life out of them. So far all of the pairs have plenty of running life left in them. For the tremendous amount of generous cushioning it is perhaps the lightest shoe around. I don't know of any other shoe that has felt so perfect when I run along the beach walk and bike pathways or on local trails in the Santa Monica Mountains. No matter what, pavement, pack soil, lose dirt, broken up rock or grass these shoes seem to manage through without trouble. The Challenger ATR seem to be stable enough even on the toughest of surfaces.

Hoka One One Challenger ATRI have two runs and just over 16 miles on these shoes. Both runs were on routes that included a combination of road and trail. This is my 4th pair of Hoka's. Unfortunately, this particular model seems to be the worst (thus far). I say this because of the quick wear that I am already seeing (black paint on the yellow foam is already coming off and there is fraying at the top of the shoe by the shoelaces. This is unfortunate because Hoka is, by far, my favorite brand of shoes. I recommend them to everyone. If the rate of wear continues after the next few runs, I will return this shoe and perhaps try a different model.

Once you go Hoka Challenger, you never go back.I use my Hoka Challenger ATR's predominantly for trail running, but they are also great on the roads. In fact, I plan to use them for some upcoming 5k's races. These shoes, like the Hoka Clifton, are the perfect balance of lightweight and cushioning. I have heard that the Challenger ATR 2 and Clifton 2 are both heavier than the originals, which is disappointing, but presumably Hoka was trying to address durability and that generally adds weight to shoes. I hope they make the 3rd iteration of the Challenger and Clifton more like the originals. If it ain't broke, don't fix it. Just come out with new colors!
