This feeling is reinforced by the ultra-breathability of the knitted upper. The Hupana is a shoe you can wear all day. From run to workout to running around town, this agile little number features the renowned HOKA cushion feel, and the responsive and lightweight full RMAT midsole and outsole provides a unique combination of durability and responsiveness.

A real surprise considering the 'Lifestyle' marketing

By 

from Maryland

Verified Reviewer

Pros

  • "speed fit' forefoot

Cons

    Best Uses

      The Hupana is a real surprise considering the marketing spin. I only have a few miles but this shoe is a winner for a heavy guy (280 lbs) as long as the durability on the mesh holds for the life of shoe. The mesh is very sturdy not like the other big brand's 'floppy-knit' so time will tell. The RMAT has outstanding grip and stability as expected. The midsole is neutral so no artificial arch interrupting foot movement or forcing your foot to be something it's not. The forefoot width is still narrow but forgiving in a relaxed speed-fit kinda way. The heel has a nice curvature which locks very well, if not perfect. Overall, very nice start for a Version 1 shoe. Thank you Hoka One One, job well done!

      1st pair of Hokas - very satisfied (I also have wide feet)

      By 

      from arizona

      Verified Reviewer

      I followed the TruFit sizing and it gave me the right size on the 1st try. Usually I'm between a 9 and 10.5 M shoe (and I have very wide feet) so I was concerned about wideness of shoe / sizing prior to ordering but I went ahead and placed the order (and it fit perfectly). I feel like there is more cushion than most running shoes (which is a good thing) but Iess cushion then other Hoka shoes. I can run extremely quickly in these shoes comfortably without my speed being affected by the shoe negatively. Would recommend. Also the shoe looks great

      Best Athletic Shoes...

      By 

      from Palm Desert, CA

      Verified Reviewer

      I've been looking for a great pair of multi-purpose athletic shoes for a while... This is the first pair I've been able to find that are super light weight, very comfortable, great looking, and versatile. They are great for running outside and on the treadmill, and I now use them all around the gym as well. I would recommend this pair to anyone without hesitation.

      Tight toe box but very nice shoe

      By 

      from Tempe AZ

      Verified Reviewer

      Pros

      • Great looking shoe
      • very light

      Cons

      • Tight toe box

      Best Uses

      • Walking around and short runs

      Having owned 2 pairs of Cliftons and 1 pair of Bondi I was surprised at the narrow toe box as the other shoes fit me very well. I bought the Hupana for use as a walking shoe and light running. However, the narrow toe box will make these a walking shoe. I do have to say they are a good looking shoe which was the main reason for buying them. Also please ignore my 2 star rating of the show. I am sure this shoe would work well for other people but just not me.

          Wanted a nice pair of stylish running and walking shoes. Has the looks but not comfortable because of the narrow toe box.

          Hupana is a winner

          By 

          from Washington, DC

          Verified Reviewer

          I like a low toe to heel rise shoe. But as a big runner (210 lbs) I also like padded shoe. Because of this combination I've always been interested in Hokas. However, I wear my running shoes with jeans when they've been worn out as runners. I just couldn't get over the appearance of Hokas, which I feel limits the shoe to just running. The Hupana provides the desirable Hoka ride in a nice looking shoe. The mesh upper is comfortable, breathable and attractive. It's also surprisingly stable and appears durable (two weeks of wear). I'm a fan - thanks Hoka.

          Not what I expected at all.

          By 

          from Upstate, SC

          Verified Reviewer

          Pros

          • They look nice
          • Were fairly lightweight

          Cons

          • Narrow toe box!
          • Not very stretchy fabric
          • Poor QC during making the shoe
          • Sizing is all off.

          Best Uses

            Wife and I bought two pairs each since we can be in between sizes. I have a pair of the original Hoka Cliftons and love them. All the newer Hoka's from that point forward all seem to fit weird and from reviews I am not alone. These shoes have narrow toe boxes yet again and is my biggest complaint with the new Hoka brand. I thought with the knit uppers they would be stretchier and they were rather stiff. They are nothing like other brands knit uppers. Second problem was sizing. I bought a 12 and 12.5. They were identical! They were marked correctly on the tongue but overall length and fit were the same. To make it worse, they were both a 1/2 size too big! The final straw was on my wife's shoe. When they sewed the tongue in they messed up and left about an inch worth of fabric just hanging in the toe box. For shoes that cost this much that is 100% unacceptable. The only reason I gave them 2* vs. 1* is that my shoes were somewhat comfy for just walking around. There is no way I could run farther than a couple miles in them with the tight toe box though. We sent all 4 pairs back and will not buy them again.

            Great option for anyone wanting Hoka cushion without bulk

            By 

            from Huntsville, AL

            Pros

            • Looks like a normal shoe
            • Plenty of cushion
            • Responsive feel

            Cons

              Best Uses

              • Casual wear
              • Daily training runs

              Just tried the Hupanas for the first time during a recovery run. They feel light and responsive while still providing a lot of cushion. They don't have the bulky, marshmallow feel of some Hokas. I was definitely impressed with the responsive feel during some sprints and the comfort when cruising at an easy pace. I can't wear any other Hokas because of the narrow fit. These are a little more forgiving with the knit upper and your feet don't sink down into the insole. I'm impressed and plan to use these regularly for training runs. I'd give 5 stars if they were just a little wider in the toe box!
