Benefits of HOKA active walking shoes

Maximum cushioning, comfort, smooth rolling and its ultra-light construction are features that HOKA is only too happy to flaunt on in its running and trail shoes. But so much so in his active walking shoes. This sets this category apart from classic hiking boots. In fact, classic hiking boots are perceived as heavier, stiffer and less cushioning.

Several customers were able to experience the differences between these two categories firsthand during the Runners’ lab Social Walk. Indeed, during this hiking event, HOKA was on hand with a wide range of test models of their best active walking shoes. Those who wanted could use it and thus walk the trail in comfort.

From A(nacapa) to S(peedgoat) tested

The HOKA Anacapa Mid GTX, Speedgoat 5, Challenger ATR 6 and Clifton 8 were all subjected to a round of inspections.

The Anacapa Mid GTX was the only higher and water-repellent model in the selection. Despite its sturdier appearance, it was received as a light hiking shoe. While there was some division over the Anacapa – not everyone was as enthusiastic about the higher fit – opinions on the Speedgoat 5 were unanimous. This model emerged as the favorite from the round of testing. Its good cushioning, softness, grip and firmness stood out. “I just walked on clouds” and “we flew with these shoes,” echoed afterwards.

The HOKA Challenger ATR 6 scored thanks to its comfort as well as appearance. “I didn’t know they had such nice, good hiking boots at HOKA,” went over the tongues several times. For many, this model was a pleasant introduction. Last but not least, the Clifton 8 was also reviewed. This model somewhat missed its effect on the nature run, although no one dared to contradict the comfort of this shoe. Unleash this active walking shoe on paved trails and it comes into its own at its best.
