        Great shoes

              My wife bought me these shoes and I cannot tell you how great they feel when running. They are the most comfortable running shoe i've owned. Right out of the box I ran 3 miles and unlike my other shoes, my feet did not hurt. As long as Hoka keeps up the quality I will never buy another running shoe.

                    I couldn't wait to rock out my new shoes when they arrived. The Rapa Nui hugged my feet like a gem and looked awesome. I've run 6mi in on a crushed gravel and stone trail in CT and also on the pavement without out any issues. I will use them during my training for and upcoming trail marathon and on race day..

                    Awesome feel, not sure of durability

                        Best Uses

                          I bought the Rapa Nui as my first pair of Hoka's about 3 weeks ago. First, this was my first max shoe and I noticed a huge difference right away. The feel really is drastically different than traditional road shoes. I was worried about the weight given these are coded as trail, but I've run on both roads and trails and they feel amazing.

                          The con is durability. I've read Hoka's last 1200-1500 miles, which helps equal the value equation vs $90-100 road shoes. One reason I purchased a trail version is I was told they have even greater durability. I ran a half marathon in my third run in these shoes and after the race the first layer of rubber is already wearing away on back edges of the shoes. I can't imagine they are going to last any longer (if as long) as my usual road shoes, so that's pretty disappointing.

                          But the feel is amazing...

                                I just started running again. I gained about 30 pounds in two months while I was studying for the bar. I started running in traditional running shoes and I was very uncomfortable during the runs.

                                But after running in these shoes, I am running longer distances and without any pain. I love these shoes. I highly recommend them.

                                I wear these shoes on the road and on trails. I've found that they work exceptionally well on all types of terrain.

                                Great trail shoe to have in the rotation. Really saves my body from getting beat up on the rocks and descents. For me they have great traction and roomy enough in the forefoot. These take a lot of the jarring so my bones and muscles are battered. Like them so much I ordered another pair (mafate3). These have made my trail miles smile again. Thank you Hoka One One.
