A little slice of heaven.
If you've ever wondered what it might be like to crush trails while wearing a pair of marshmallows, look no further than the Hoka One One Men's Stinson ATR 4 Running Shoe. Granted, the Stinson is a bit more technologically inclined than its puffy-sweet cousins, but the effective is relatively comparable, minus the sugar rush. That being said, the Stinson is equipped with a bevy of new features, but it's still endowed with the Meta-Rocker Geometry and a no-sew mesh upper for ample breathability.
The Stinson 4 ATR is now fashioned with a wide flare at the forefoot and toe that provides a stable platform underfoot and is a direct reaction to the once-tippy design of Hoka's shoes. So, don't go thinking that the Stinson is a stability shoe in the sense that it supports supination or overpronation—it's a neutral shoe that makes navigating varied terrain feel a bit more amenable. Meanwhile, the Stinson is equipped with an improved fit, specifically that it now has a wider forefoot and more durable midsole, in turn making the Stinson a suitable companion for long and difficult trail runs. And not to mention, the outsole now flaunts a tighter lug pattern with 4mm lugs instead of 3mm lugs.
