Why do you choose HOKA?

Most practical shoe for running long distances on technical trail surface. Offers superior comfort and protection therefore improving recovery time, quality of running, consistency, volume of training, etc.

What is your favorite HOKA ONE ONE shoe and why?

Racing: Stinson ATR (50-100mi) because it allows me to run the early miles comfortably and the late miles hard!

Training: Stinson ATR & Huaka. Stinson’s great for my long trail runs on technical terrain and active recovery sessions while the sleeker Huaka has been a great for hill and tempo sessions.
