Hoka One One: Pros and Cons
This is a good review of the Hoka One One shoe line. While it may be an introduction to some, my patients have been using these shoes for the last 4-5 years. The negatives for some are the almost zero heel drop (more stress on the achilles), the relatively poor durability, the elevation off the ground (more risk of ankle sprains), and the narrow and shallow toe box (poor for wide feet and orthotic fittings). The positives are almost zero heel drop (great for metatarsal problems), the rocker (great for metatarsal problems), the overall great cushion for shock absorption, and the lightness. So, there are patients that benefit, and the shoe line should be around for a long time.
