Dead on Arrivalwrote a review of Hoka One One Mafate 4 Running Shoe - Men's on May 23, 2016
Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
Fit: True to size
The new design has a wider toe, no gusset, is heavier, not near as soft, no quick lace. With those features, nothing could make this a better shoe. Why do they always have to screw it up? It's a supposed to be a trail running shoe. How hard is it put a gusset in to keep the dirt out?
This shoe is more in the hiking shoe category, and without the marshmallow sole. This is a step backward.
