Hoka ATR 4

Well, I’m only one run in on them, but I wanted to give some quick feedback on my first impressions…

I primarily got the Hoka ATR 4 in hopes that I would find a trail running shoe that would give me some of the knee/back forgiveness that seems to be at the core of Hoka’s fame. After the first session on them I am really digging them. I had to resort to the treadmill for my run due to all the snow on the trails right now, but I think that might actually be a better cushion test than a trail run since I seem to have a heavier strike on treadies over natural surface. I noticeably felt like my body took on a bit less stress and I came away with a smile. As someone cautiously making my way back into running with normally aggravated responses post-runs, I was stoked to find what might be just what the doctor ordered to keep me rolling!
