Love them but...

I've put it through the wringer
True to size

Of course I love these because they are Hoka, and they are the best running shoe for my feet. I have the light blue and the color is SO cute in person! The only issues I have with these shoes are that after going though 3 pairs of the Arahi 4, my feet were used to those and loved em. With the 5, the toe box is significantly smaller. This has been giving me blisters in between my toes.. which I never get. And this is after plenty break in time. The way the laces are positioned also make my foot cramp up. Hopefully my feet will eventually get used to them... but good to be aware of if you are accustomed to the 4’s. Other than those issues, they are great.
