The Hoka One One Women's Challenger ATR Shoe is a comfortable trail shoe to challenge yourself on all-terrain running adventures. Starting from the bottom, the first thing you'll notice is the super cushy full EVA midsole with Early-Stage Meta-Rocker in a 28mm heel and 23mm forefoot. Plenty of cush to land your foot upon, but flip that puppy over and you'll see rubber pods with 4mm lugs to stabilize and propel your way along uneven terrain. At only 7.4 ounces (based on size 7), the lightweight shoe has a no sew SpeedFrame upper to wrap your foot inside. Lace up and hit the dirt, one foot in front of the other.

What a SurpriseI pruchesed these three weeks ago, looking for a shoe that would be very light weight, stable on technical trails, and cushioned on paved roads. These shoes are perfect. I have no fear of turning an ankle on rocks and roots with the deep tread and wide sole, and they perform just as smoothly on paved trails and roads. The size runs slightly large. I usually run in women's 8, but with these a 7.5 fit perfectly. My only complaint is the fabric along the very top edge near the top lace hole is delicate, and ripped after three runs. I've attached a photo. It's only cosmetic so I will keep using them.

Great Shoes!!I am training for my first 5K and walk on my off days, averaging 21-25 miles a week. I train at night, and they make more noise than other shoes (while I'm trying to go stealth mode), they seem to be heavier than some of the others too, and not quite as much cushioning as I like. They are very comfortable to walk in though. I dn;t care for the tie-up laces...I got used to the slide laces, which I definitely prefer. All in all, they are a pretty good shoe; stable, comfortable, not too heavy, slight cushioning, fits well. I will probably get another pair (before they discontinue them...like they did the last two types I really liked!)

Has some issues, but still greatI know that I listed a bunch of "cons", but even with the black toenail PRs, these shoes are responsible for my running come-back this year. I am afraid to try another shoe--toenails and lack of durability and all! I went from only being able to sustain 3 miles continuously(hip injury) to 74 miles per week and a Marathon PR(by almost 20 minutes) in just a few months. I wish the clifton was available in a comparable width. Right now I am using this model for all of my running, road, off-road, treadmill, and track. I would prefer to only use it off-road and have other Hoka options that could accommodate my wide forefoot. One pair lasts me about 5 weeks before the treads are toast.

Your insoles are don't stay in place.I have three pairs of Huka's. - I've pulled my insoles out of other runnning shoes & have put them in your shoes. Your insoles don't stay in place, they are halfway up the back of my heel at the end of a run. I did glue your insoles in my first pair to keep them in place, but I find insoles from other shoes work much better. Otherwise your shoes are great. -- it's all I run in now. I've been running for 45 years & have been through a lot of shoes. I have a very narrow foot. Right now I wear thick wool socks which takes up the space. But I would like to wear lighter socks when it's warm. Any chance you might be making more narrow shoes.

Great for a wide foot with a high archThis shoe is definitely a size too big. I am a solid 9.5 women's, but if I had kept this style, I would have gone down to a 9. It's a wide shoe and fit like my men's sneakers fit. To be honest, the arch was so high, that it dug into my foot and I knew it would not ever fit, so I returned it. That being said, this shoe would be great for someone with wider feet and a high arch. I ended up keeping the Odyssey and learned that the shoe actually breaks in after a week of solid use. In other words, the arch will eventually conform to the foot wearing the shoe. If you are on the fence with this shoe, give it a week before making a decision.

Best shoes ever!!!I was introduced to these shoes by my sister-in-law, when we were visiting America last month. I can't believe how comfortable they are, and what a difference they have made to my runs!! From the first time I put them on, they were made for my feet - no blisters, no sore points, no aching joints. I've stuck with Nike Pegasus trail shoes for years now, as they were the only ones that didn't give me blisters, but now I'm trading them all in for Hokas, I kid you not! For three years I've had a sore hip after each run, but now, after 6 runs in my Hokas, my hip feels fine. The only thing I ask is that Hoka consider shipping internationally, as we are living in S Africa and I've been unable to find anyone here who stocks this brand.

Comfy, but runs WIDEI've been having terrible problems with plantar fasciitis so I'm always on the lookout for shoes with plenty of cushioning. The Hoka One One has that. When I first tried them on I thought that I'd been sent a men's shoe since they felt gigantic. Because they felt so big I had plenty of room for my orthotics. They really are very comfortable but still seem on the wide side. I'm not sure they would work for me for running though because I do still have a little too much room in them. I always wear a size 9, sometimes even a 9 1/2 in running shoes . These are a 9. i'm a little baffled by the width. If anything I've always thought I had wide feet so to get shoes that feel too wide is a little surprising to me.

Hokas just need more toe roomI am a marathoner, and have been wearing Hokas for a few years now. Hoka makes great shoes. BUT, as with most Hokas, they really need to make them in a wide width and design a deeper/higher toebox, since MANY people insert custom or OTC orthotics these days. My toes constantly hit the inside top of the shoe with my orthotics in, especially when my feet swell up on long runs or very hot days. This resulted in 4 black/lost toenails so far. Toes need room!!!
