wet weather workhorse

I've put it through the wringer
True to size

Picked these up to be able to run through wet winter days and have been really happy overall with them. It's very similar to the Clifton 7 from Hoka but has a slightly firmer landing I'm not sure if its a difference in the foam or due to the more lugged outsole. Its not 'firm' by any means, just a little more so than the Clifton, and still offers the great comfort you would expect from Hoka. Gore Tex bootie took a few minutes to get used to and made me think they may be a little small but after a couple miles I stopped noticing and they felt true to size with all my other Hokas. Best part if the Gore Tex works as it should. So nice to be able to head out in the rain or snow and know ill be dry for more than the first mile and not have to watch out for puddles or anything. Ive had them out in rain/snow/sleet storms for well over an hour at a time and had dry feet at the end. They are a little warmer than a non GTX shoe, but that was welcome in cold winter temps, and they breathe well enough that you dont end up soaked from the inside. I havent taken them out on any trails yet, and probably wont just due to other options I have. However if you do alot of run commuting road --> trail and you arent on anything technical this would be a good 'jack of all trades master of none' shoe. I think these would be great for a runcation where you only want to take one pair of shoes as well. Road performance was totally adequate for what I need from it, which is just to get through crap weather days in one piece. They aren't fast, they aren't terribly sexy, but they get the job done. I've had them over 15 miles a couple times and while it certainly wouldn't be my first choice on a dry day, they were totally serviceable in terms of comfort. The additional grip offered by the more lugged outsole was definitely welcome in any sort of wet conditions or snow i encountered in them. They are low profile enough not to be annoying on the road and would be fine on more mellow trails, buffed out singletrack, etc. Definitely happy with my purchase on these! If you dont need the waterproofing but still want to check them out be sure to take a look at regular Challenger 6 ATR (and you get more color options there too!)
