If you've long pined for a lightweight running shoe that can tackle more than just short tempo runs, look no further than the Hoka One One Women's Hupana Shoe. Designed to transition between training sessions or long runs alike, the Hupana provides a smooth, responsive feel underfoot, so you're able to make the most of your workout.
To start, the knit upper offers a sock-like feel, while the seamless design prevents chafing and hot spots and is designed as such that it allows your foot to breathe whether you're trucking through a hot 5k or enjoying a walk through the park with your dogs. Additionally, the Hupana's midsole maintains cushioned comfort, shock attenuation, and enhances overall energy return, so you're able to make the most of time constraints or your stride. And since the Hupana's sole is the same material as the midsole, the weight of the shoe is kept to an overall minimum, ensuring day-long comfort and support.

- Q & A
My favorite pair of Hokas yet.
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I'm a Hoka convert through and through. Love my OG Stinson's, hit the pavement in a pair of Clifton's, and then I gave a 2nd pair of Clifton's a try, and well, I'm thoroughly hooked. I was surprised to find Hoka had come out with the more "hip" Hupana.
Hoka calls it their "wear all day" shoe and it truly is. The Hupana is low profile, lightweight, utilizes a knit construction in the upper, and is ultimately designed for logging miles.
Overall quality is high, from the sole platform and midsole, to insert, upper and laces, the shoe feels solid. I've been using these mostly for gym workouts and treadmill running, and have been impressed with the lateral stability of the shoe and traction indoors, the 5mm is ideal for close contact with the floor and helping me to feel a bit more agile on those early morning days. I've found the fit to be spot on will all other shoes, confidently ordered a 9.5 and they're perfect. There's even a pitch more room than expected due to the toe box shape. I have narrow foot, so what really has me loving these shoes, is a slightly more narrow fit and knit that hug my foot. I've not had a running shoe fit so just right. Also, I've yet to get a hot spot or blister. Purchase the duberry and it's exactly as pictured, vibrant coral with black accents.

I have been wanting a pair of Hokas and finally pulled the trigger and I am happy I did! I really love these shoes! I am normally a size 9 and that is what I ordered and they fit perfect! The color is just like in the photos, they are beautiful! They felt good from my first workout, didn't seem to have much of a break in period .
Super comfortable, runs a wee bit big
Which Hoka is bet for narrow feet and good for zumba and walking long distances?
