This is a surprisingly good looking shoe. I sent a pair to my younger brother who has been considering Hokas for a year. The design made him switch.

    Great shoe, only 2 issues, they fit a little narrow but not bad and the laces will not stay tied. I fixed the lace issue with a replacement pair of basic athletic laces. Look forward to the Conquest 3!

    Very comfortable shoe. The shoe fits a little too narrow, and the shoe laces come untied constantly. I fixed the shoe lace issue with a cheap pair of regular athletic shoes laces. They are blue and look great, and they do not come untied. I hope HOKA fixes the width issue because I like the shoe.

    Comments about Conquest 2:

    I was surprised by the quality of the Hoka Conquests. At the heel, the black band that goes around is thick/dense rubber, the interim rubber between sole and tread is beefy. The quality compared to NB, Adidas or Nike, these are very durable in molding of the sole and connection to the upper nylon material, even the nylon is more rugged than most major running shoes. This is NOT a minimalist shoe but still they feel light. They firmly hold your foot in place. I'm a heavier runner, 190 lbs. While the Conquest 2 isn't overly cushiony, it definitely has a soft impact feel. My only complaint is the toe box could be a little wider. I'm not sure about marathons but for 5k - 10k these shoes fit my need. I would like to try another softer Hoka possibly the Clifton's for a daily wear around/running shoe.
    I have been seeking a more forgiving running shoe but wanted something light weight. I also was tired of wearing out a shoe in only a few months. I'm now sold on Hoka's and would definitely recommend.

    Comments about Conquest 2:

    I've tried 3 different pairs of Conquests, and although extremely comfortable, the material on the outside heel of the sole wears out VERY QUICKLY. I was shocked that after 50 miles with my first pair that I could see "white" underneath the "black" part of the sole. I took back to my local running store and they gave me a new pair. Same thing. Wore out very quickly. Frankly, I'm not sure if running with these shoes does more harm than good, but they're still like running on clouds.

    Comments about Conquest 2:

    I've been running on Hoka Stinson Lites on the road, and love them, but they've got some miles on them, so I decided to try the Conquests. To be fair, I've only run one 7 mile run in them, but on that run here's what I noticed:
    1. The cushioning is not as soft as on the Stinsons. Okay, so maybe that makes it more responsive, but it also makes it stiffer and provides less cushion (why have maximalist cushioning if it's stiff and doesn't give?). And really, it felt kind of dead to me.
    2. My shoes came untied 3 times during the run. That never happens to me.
    3. The tongue does this weird thing where it rides down into the shoe.
    4. At about mile 6 it started rubbing the top of my big toe. A 20 mile run would result in blisters, methinks.

    The caveat: I've only used these once. I'm hoping they'll soften up over time, and maybe they'll be better on longer runs.
