    Be careful what you wish for

    By H Town

    from Houston

    Verified Reviewer

    Pros

    • Great cushioning

    Cons

    • Mid Foot Swells

    Best Uses

    • Great For Initial 1-3 Mil

    I have Haglund's deformity on one feet so my doctor recommended me to get better cushioned shoe. I am tall & heavy runner 6'5 210LBS so I started to hunt for a better cushioned shoe. After researching for few days I zeroed on Hoka Conquest. After 2-3 runs >10miles, my feet which was fine started to hurt & swell at the mid upper section. I switched to my previous shoe (Scotts) and it felt ok. There is something the way this shoe is constructed that it hurts the mid feet. My 2 cents, please be careful & do not hurt your foot for the cushioning.

    Fast Tread Wear

    By Coastal Runner

    from Charleston, SC

    Verified Reviewer

    Pros

    • Light
    • Quick dry

    Cons

    • Smaller toe box

    Best Uses

    • Roadtrail
    • Trail

    These are my second pair of Hokas. Loved my Stinson Tarmacs. These seem to have a narrower toe box which has caused some blister issues for me. My biggest concern is the tread wear. I've got only 250 miles on these and the bottoms look like my Stinsons that have over 700 miles. I was expecting them to last at least 500 miles but will be replacing sooner.

    Poor quality material for the money

    By Rob G

    from Bloomsburg, PA.

    Verified Reviewer

    Pros

    • Great stability
    • Very Comfortable On Runs

    Cons

    • Mesh Material Cheap
    • Not worth the cost
    • Ripped In Mesh On Run
    • VERY disappointed
    • Wore On Crease Left Shoe

    Best Uses

      Only lasted 300 miles till a rip occurred in the crease in mesh on left sneaker. Very disappointed that I spent $170.00 for my red Hoka Conquest sneakers. I loved the feel on how they made my feet feel after my longer runs. But very disappointed in the quality of the mesh material that created a hole in the crease during my runs. I was looking forward to being a new member of the Hoka community. First time I ever spent that type of money on a sneaker in my 16 years of running. Very upset with my first pair of Hoka's for the money!!!

      OMG! I just bought a pair of Conquest and don't want to take them off. As a long time Nike Vomero, Nike Air Max, Brooks, and Asics user I've gone through top of the line shoes from many brands but none come close to Hoka Conquest. I was so impressed with the feel I bought a pair for my wife.

      I am not generally swayed by reviews because each person has a different perspective on what feels good to them and that includes cushioning. Words are insufficient to fully explain the level of cushioning provided by these sneaker, you must try them for yourself. I warn you come prepared to buy because you won't want to take them off.

      Excellent But Needs A More Durable Tread

      By Anchorboy Runner

      from Charlotte, NC

      Pros

        Cons

          Best Uses

            I have worn several Hoka models, including the Mufate, the Bondi, the Rapa Nui and the Conquest. I love each one of them...the cushioning allowed me to continue running with no knee pain! Each one of the Hoka models worked very well for me, but I've found I like the Conquest the best as it is the perfect fit for my foot. My only concern...the treads of ALL those models seem to wear out way too early! Granted, I am a heavy runner, 6'4 and 215 pounds. Still, the folks at the shoe stores where I've bought my Hokas all agree they don't feel the tread should wear out so quickly. I think Hokas would be the absolute perfect shoe if the company were to go to a different tread that's more durable.

            Since changing over from Kayanos, I can run over seven miles everyday without having to take a day off between runs to recover from the pounding of running on concrete or asphalt. I can't belive how great they feel on my long runs and I do not need to worry about the next day. I am looking forward to my next marathon. I am now a believer in Hokas and will not go back!

            Fantastic Shoe

            By Michael

            from Princeton, NJ

            Pros

              Cons

                Best Uses

                  Best running shoe I've owned to date. I believe this shoe helped alleviate some chronic issues I've had with running... hip bursitis and plantar.

                  Pros

                  • Great heel cushion
                  • Great Support
                  • Wider Toe Bed

                  Cons

                  • Complicated Laces
                  • Complicated Ties

                  Best Uses

                  • Non-runner
                  • Post-injury

                  I'm still recovering from Achilles tendon repair followed quickly by knee replacement, and it's been difficult to find comfortable shoes to regain long-distance walking ability. After several failed attempts with other brands, Hoka came to my rescue. I'll never be a runner again, but now I have hope of returning to full mobility. At first I thought the shoe might be too snug, but with thin socks, it gives me the overall support I need with fantastic heel/ball cushioning to enable me to be on my feet all day. Despite the snug width, I appreciate the fuller toe bed, and the seemless construction also adds to the overall comfort. I was initially hesitant with the price, but I now consider these great value for the money.

                  Best 10 mile time in a year!!

                    I received a pair for my birthday. I took them out today for a 10 mile training run. I never felt any shock in my joint (knees, ankles, hips, etc.). Got caught in a downpour and the WDS did what it was designed for. Too bad my socks did not shed water like these shoes. However, with all of that, I still turned in my best 10 mile time in over a year. Speed laces work well, but take getting used to.

                    • Running

                    I ordered a pair of Conquests from a Hoka One One distributor, I have only run about 12 miles in them so far but I love the extra cushion of them over my normal Asics shoe. They are pretty light to me, others perceptions may be different. These would be my favorite shoe but one thing keeps me from saying that. Durability, the soles are already beginning to show significant wear. The small patches of rubber at the heel and the ball of the foot are not enough. The shoe needs a full rubber tread, or at least one that covers the majority of the hell and forefoot. I will probably be exchanging the Conquests for a pair of Mafate 3 or Stinson Tarmacs which have full rubber coverage.
