A versatile performer, this shoe excels in the mountains, on the roads and everywhere in between. Dubbed the Clifton for trail running, this updated CHALLENGER is cushy, fast and very surefooted. The now well established HOKA midsole geometry and early stage mid-sole rocker promise a smooth ride, and the '3's supportive fit through the mid-foot makes for an even more comfortable experience on road or trail. The breathable upper with reinforcing overlays, and rubber-tipped lugs for all-terrain traction, complete the offering.

Close to perfect!

  • width

Cons

  • stack height and ankle stability

Best Uses

    I am an ultra runner. I currently use the Clifton 3 for the road and the Challenger ATR 3 for the trails. I favored Altra in the past, but my foot slid around inside on technical trails.The Nike Terrra Kiger had a nearly perfect upper, width, and stability, but lacked in cushioning for ultras. I see the Challenger ATR 3 as nearly perfect ultra shoe! If I had to nitpick, I would prefer a slightly lower stack height to prevent ankle sprains on the trail. I expected the Challenger ATR 3 to be identical in fit to the Clifton 3, however, I was pleasantly surprised that they seemed just a wee bit wider in the lateral toe box. I am not getting the slight pinky toenail soreness that I get with the Clifton 3 after 20+ miles. I love the new stretchy laces as well. Keep up the good work Hoka!

    Super comfy but expect to buy three pairs per summer....

    By 

    from Steamboat Springs, CO

    Verified Reviewer

    Love the fit and comfort of this shoe, wore it almost exclusively last summer and fall for long runs and trail races. Unfortunately after only a few longer runs I tore lugs off the sole and miles later ripped the upper. Almost immediately, within a few runs the toe of the sole pulls off the top of the toe. I went though three pairs last summer, and one pair in about one month that included running the run rabbit run 50...can't imagine what the 100 miler would have done to them. All trail running was in CO with a mix of smooth dirt and technical rocky terrain. Please enhance the sole and where the bond between the sole and upper!

    Thanks for bringing back the cushion

    Challenger 2's were a big disappointment with less cushion. So thankful for the 3's and the return of Hoka feel!

    Disappointed in all New HOKAS lines

    By 

    from Burwell, NE

    Verified Reviewer

    I've tan in HOKAS for 3 years now, brought me back into running as dealing with injuries before. The soft cushion in all their lines help eliminate the low back and hip issues. So disappointed now with new lines, extra soft cushion is gone. HOKA you have gone down the wrong path of what got you where you are today, the super soft cushion. Go back to cushion instead of focusing on $$.

    Great Job!!!

    By 

    from SoCal

    I have stayed away from Hokas for the longest time because they were just too narrow. I tried Stinson ATR couple of years back and my pinky toes were just so crammed, it hurt after just couple of miles. So I went with Altras and Salomons, but always missed that Hoka cushion. ATR 3's are just wide enough for me to run without toes getting crammed! I've run twice so far, and I really love it. PLEASE DON'T CHANGE A THING HOKA!!!

    Size matters

    By 

    from Pacific Palisades, Ca.

    Verified Reviewer

    I love Hoka One One. The Challenger ATR are my favorites. I have 8 pairs. I run in 7 of them. I don't know what happen with this last pair. It arrived and I thought it felt snug. The size said 13 but it felt more like a 12. Unfortunately the box got destroyed so it will end up as a walking or street dance shoe. Running in them would mean black toenails on every outing. I gave this a 3 star rating. Normally ATR's get a 5 star from me.

    Responsive but not plush

    By 

    from Campbell River, BC

    Verified Reviewer

    Great product. Just as advertised. Just one question. Since there is no longer a Stintson or a Mafate, will there no longer be a plush max cushioned trail shoe in the line up?

    Verified Reviewer

    I was a huge fan of the challenger 1s. Not so much of the 2s. The 3s are hands down the best iteration yet. Just took them for a varied surface run and they performed very well. Nicely done Hoka! Will definitely be my go to shoe for all my upcoming races.

    A Few Nice Changes from the 2's

    By 

    from Austin, TX

    Verified Reviewer

    Pros

    • Comfortible
    • Light

    Cons

      Best Uses

      • Mixed use
      • Road
      • Trial

      The overall ride is very similar to the Challenger ATR 2's with a few minor changes. If you Liked the 2's you will defiantly like these. They have new laces that are very soft and stretchy. I was worried at first, but after lacing up I actually like them better. I had no problem locking my foot in and did not have to adjust the laces once during my first run. Out of the box ran a lovely 13 miles. No "break-in" required.
      No longer is there a flimsy insole. The new Orthlite X-40 is inline with a traditional insole. I only have one 13 mile run but so far so good. I will update after a few more runs.
