Been a hoka 11 wearer for over a year ( shoes) picked these up for philmont this summer with the scouts.
These are made in China.
That means size up. They fit exactly like the shoes. Mine had a tight toe box. I went up my usual half size for shoe to boot. I should have gone up at least a full size.
The change from vibram to sticky rubber on the soles was a $ saving option. The tread will only last about a year. I'm 50+ trail miles in and my usual wear points are obvious. I'm ok with this due to getting them for 120$ shipped free. Not so ok with it when boots break 150$.
@ 120$ when I got them every thing else was a solid pro for the point.
E vent works well, they keep the feet dry
Super comfy support
No after market insole needed (that's huge for me)
Lace and feel like a shoe but all the pros of a low boot
Not a stupid color, so I can wear them out in town
Hoka stuff rocks, these are no exception. They need to fix the toe box/ sizing and realistically adjust the price to reflect the one year/season approach with the non vibram soles. These worked for me as a one trek boot for train up and a multi day,70 mile trek. After that these will be yard boots. I can wear them all day in tx summer with boot socks and my feet are not hot or tired.
ETA: Took these to Philmont, dropped the rating. After 100 trail miles on varying terrain the mid sole began to split/tear. The event completely lost its ability to keep out moisture other than light dew/ drizzle. Minimal submersion caused the boot to wet out. I spent 3 days wearing wet boots due to rain, etc and drying these and was the only one with wet boots. They take long to dry. The toe material tore with light use and the lace keepers on the top began to be eaten away by the laces without excessive use. These boots are not up to wet enviorns or anything other than part time flat trail use.
They did not need insoles, and I did not blister despite them being sized small and being wet. My feet hurt only marginally after ascent and decent on fist to skull sized loose rocks. Good probably for trail walking as a neophyte. Should have gone with Vas or Solomon.
