For my job I stand all day. I work in manufacturing, I usually wear Hoka bondi sneakers. Tor Summit will be my go to work shoes from now on! When standing all day support for your feet and back is very important. I also have a pair to hike in. Great shoe!

So I ordered this shoe because I LOVE my Bondi model running shoe and this hiker did not disappoint. HOWEVER... my Bondi Hoka’s are a size 9.5 and fit great so I first ordered the Summit in a 9.5 and it was way too big. Called customer service and had a 9 in my possession 3 days later‼️ Wore them all day just to see if I had any hot spots and nothing! Not as cushy as my Bondi’s but as some have said to be expected with the different use/sole. I just wanted a low cut hiker that would also work for running around in winter. These fit that bill😉 I am normally a woman’s 9 with a little wider foot and the 9 fit great with enough room in the toe box to wiggle my toes...PERFECT so far‼️ And GREAT customer service Backcountry, thank you‼️
Stats: 64/F/185 lb/ past foot surgery . purchased August for Grand Canyon hike 9/29/18. 1st wear blisters, tied tighter no more blisters. Wonderful . Cushy foot bed very important to me. Less grab than my keen hiking shoes. Loved them anyway. Really . GC hike 11hr. No ache to feet. Would love half sizes. Color is bland but hey I don’t hike for fashion. 5 star
Best hiking boot ever!

I LOVE my Hoka Summits! In fact this is actually my 2nd pair - yes I did manage to wear out my 1st pair finishing the Appalachian Trail. These boots, even though they are low cut (vs high top boots), are amazing in there ability to stabilize your foot & ankles. The grip is amazing - I've trekked over more rocks, boulders to crushed & everything in between & have never slipped or worried about my footing. The Hoka thick sole feels like you are walking on pillows, just don't ever feel the rocks beneath your feet. After 8+ hours of hiking over varied terrain my feet & soles of my feet never hurt. These are actually my favorite most comfortable shoes I own. My husband has the men's version & after struggling with/through a half dozen different hiking boots trying to find 1 that would get him through the AT this is the boot!! Thanks Hoka!!

I've been wearing Hoka running shoes hiking, because they are so soft on the impact. I was really excited to get the hiking specific shoe, so that it would perform better on the rock, dirt, mud and gravel.
This shoe does perform better on rock, dirt, mud and gravel! But, I was bummed that they aren't as cushy. I understand that the hard sole needed for rugged terrain is necessary, though. Aw! I just can't have it all.
The fit generous. For hiking shoes, here is definitely room for my feet to swell. I couldn't go down a size, but they are a tiny bit too big. To be fair, I am in between sizes all the time, though.
I like the 4mm drop, for a more natural stride. There isn't a lot of arch support, so get inserts, if you need that.
These are going to be best for staying on the path. I go off trail a lot. So, I put these to the test. They don't have a ton or torsional rigidity, so traversing on steep slopes is a no. But, you can really cinch those laces, and get some decent support.
Also, they aren't mean for climbing up or down steep, slabby rock, but I did it anyway. They are good for some normal rock scramble, but nothing extreme. They did well in water. The water just beaded right off.
Overall, I think I will keep these as an backpacking shoe that will absorb a lot of the weight and impact of my heavy packs. These did get me to where I was going (straight up a trail-less mountain), but I'll have to look elsewhere for a well-cushioned trail blazing shoe.
I gave these to my son, and he has liked them. You have to tighten the laces really well, though, to have full support.

Bought these for my wife. She likes how comfortable they are.
Fits true to size, but my wife has a narrow heel. So every time
she took a step, the heel moved.Returned
