The unique underfoot platform on the Hoka One One Men's Stinson Trail Running Shoe enables you to hang tough through long runs on rough trails. With 2.2 times the midsole cushioning of most other running shoes and 30% wider contact surface with the ground, the Stinson offers both one-of-a-kind comfort and excellent stability and traction. But don't worry, you aren't paying a weight penalty for this performance; its ultra-lightweight design (15% lighter than most running shoes) means you tire less running uphill while its speedy downhill performance makes it ideal for adventure racing. Within the Hoka One One line of revolutionary running shoes, the Stinson Trail offers the second-largest volume midsole (just behind the Mafate), and while it features the same midsole as the Stinson Road, it is slightly stiffer and offers a gripper outsole for rough terrain.

  • Breathable, debris-proof closed mesh upper and thin, foot-conforming tongue give you excellent fit and feel
  • TPU reinforcements add support while reinforced toe cap protects your foot from trail hazards
  • Speed lacing lets you easily dial in your fit and won't come untied during long runs
  • High Performance EVA in midsole is 30% softer and 2.2 times thicker than a typical trail running shoe so it absorbs up to 80 percent of shock associated with heel strike and soaks up rough terrain
  • Rockered midsole and low heel-toe differential (6mm) allows for natural-feeling strides and easier transitions between steps for improved efficiency
  • Bucket Seat heel and midsole pockets are recessed into the sole by 20mm so you feel planted with every step
  • Extra-wide underfoot platform (30% wider than standard running shoes) stabilizes the movement of the foot upon impact to reduce the rate of pronation and supination
  • Rugged sticky rubber outsole with 4mm lugs conquers off-road conditions

Best shoes ever

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit:True to size

Title explains how I feel about these Hokas. I'm 6'3" and weigh 210lbs and went from a stability shoe to these for street and trail running and have had no injuries or pain whatsoever. I'm on my 3rd pair and I've put 350-400 miles on each of the first two pairs. Only complaint would be the soft lugs wore out pretty quickly where I heel strike. Not really a big problem though because the thick foam padding in the next layer held up just fine once the rubber was worn away. Toe box isn't super wide like the Altras, but is plenty roomy for me. Prefer this model to the newer Stinson Trail ATR.

i admit that there is a slight learning curve coming from a typical trail shoe. my first 2 runs were not unpleasant but it took time to get comfortable using the shoe. My bad knee and ache feet used to discourage me from running more than 5-7 miles. once i started running with the hoka stinson my knee and foot pain are not even an issue.

i have one issue that is inevitable with such a high sole. running for extended periods of time on angled traverses or in trough or U shaped trails can be pretty uncomfortable.

bottom line:

if you want to run faster, run further and hurt less, buy these!!!

I love this shoe

I purchased this shoe for my first 100 mile trail race. I have been running in the Hoka road shoes for well over 1000 miles but I've run some snowy and muddy trail races that proved the road shoe less than desirable. Although I like the Bondi b I like the Stinson Trail much more. So much more that I think I would prefer to run roads in my trail shoe or seriously consider purchasing the Stinson Tarmac as my next road shoe. I just ran the Kettle Morain 100 and the shoe performed quite well. I did end up with some blisters on my toes and the bottom of my feel but I attribute that to the speed laces and my inexperience with 100 mile races. I now have over 200 miles on the shoe and I would expect it to last maybe 500 more happy miles. I'm very happy with this shoe and I would recommend it to a friend.

Over the past year or so I have surveyed HOKA wearers while running the North Face Challenge trail marathon, and the AR 50 miler, and the Way Too Cool 50k to see how they like their Hoka's. At least 95% said they like or love'em. So, I finally got mine. After about 30+/- miles over 3 runs I can say I like them...and the longer the run the more I do...and with each run I get used to them more and like them more. I have yet to try them on anything over 15 miles. I have a feeling I may be able to give 5 stars someday, but for now, 4.

PS It took just a few miles to get used to the change in style from my Salomons.

PPS I am over 50, and my main goal for getting HOKA's is to extend my running life, hopefully saving my joints for years of trail running to come.

Not for me

  • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit:True to size

Some people live for this brand, not me. I bought a pair ( full price $160 ) and put them on a 20k run. I �v lost the count of how many times i twisted my ankle running on this ( i normally use minimal shoes ). After 5k i started to feel a weird pain on the plant of the right foot.

I won�t say they are bad shows but i think is a good advice to test them before buying them. I live in Colombia and now i�ll have to sell them for a very low price as used shoes.

Awesome shoe mang

I liked my 1st pair so much I'm on my second pair. They last forever. Run great. Truly make running longer runs easier on the body. My hips and knees hurt less on longer (for me) runs. I sometimes wear them to work in as an RN on my feet for 12 hour shifts. They seem to help there too.

Oh and I did size down a half size. My only dislike is that I wish they were more of a zero drop shoe but 6mm is better than those stilettos other companies call "running shoes".

What is the difference between the Stinson Trail vs. Stinson Evo Trail? Thanks. Steve


The Evo was last year's version of the same shoe. I have taken a pretty close look at tech specs both on our site and elsewhere, and it looks like the name change is just simplification in branding. So you can expect the same feel and functionality as you experienced with last year's model.

Can you please stock the 12.5 size? It's great that Hoka One One makes a 12.5 (and a 13.5!) but a bummer that you don't carry it.
