Ever wonder what it's like to run on a cloud?
Short of buying twenty cases of marshmallows and scattering them across the pavement, hitting the road in the Hoka One One Challenger ATR 3 Women's Running Shoe is the closest thing to running on pure fluff. With an oversized EVA midsole and Hoka's smooth-rolling early stage Meta-Rocker, the Challenger will keep you cruising over everything from rolling trails to the sidewalks and streets that surround your home. Part of what makes the Challenger so versatile is its all-terrain sole, which features 4mm lugs for exceptional traction on both dirt and pavement. Hoka even threw in an Ortholite insole to add a bit more cushy goodness to the already plush equation.

My girlfriend has been hesitant to try out HOKA trail shoes because of the bulky moon-shoe stigma, but finally caved and is stoked about it. She says that the shoes tank over rocks that would normally cause a trip or misstep. They offer comfort and a bit more room in the toe box section than other trail shoes, which is particularly helpful for long runs.

Had initial thoughts before purchasing a shoe with as cushion as these do. I have been running in brooks shoes (trail and road), but my body is starting to scream at me from all of the miles that I have put it through. I decided to go ahead and try these trail shoes out, My body felt so much better during and after the run. The cushion takes some getting used to, but once you are used to how much there is these shoes will treat you so well.
