I posted a pic of new gutties a week or two back and today I broke in my 14th pair of Hokas. That’s 14 pairs since 2012. These are the Clifton mode. I’ve had Huaka, ATR, Challenger, Mafate, Stinsons, Stinson Lites, One Ones and a few others. To some they are marmite, to me they are dynamite. Poetry!
Initial impressions are generally good. They are light, responsive and have good grip. But I found the toebox tighter than most other kinds and I will need to be convinced that this will ease before I do anything of a decent distance in them.
