What do you do with the most comfortable, versatile, and loved maximal running shoe of all time? Make it lighter, even more comfortable, and faster. Narrowing the heel unit of the Bondi, strategically scooping weight away from the outsole to create a shape better suited to more efficient runners, and complementing this redesign with a comfort fit upper, the Valor dares to imagine where the next evolution in running comfort will take us. If you need something more agile than the Bondi, or less race-primed than the Clifton, or if you just want to try on a running shoe that feels amazingly comfortable and forgiving in motion, new to the Hoka range in 2015 the Valor is the shoe you've been looking for.
Early-Stage Meta-Rocker Provides Propulsion
Full EVA Midsole Provides Signature HOKA Cushioning
Flat Waisted Geometry Provides Inherent Stability
Strategic Rubber Placement Provides Durability
I just purchased my second pair of Hoka's to replace my previous pair which I got tremendous value and benefit from. I am not a runner but do a lot of walking following a total knee replacement and I would recommend Hoka's to anyone for walking or in fact everyday wear.
Have always worn runners from big main stream companies. This is a welcome departure from those and i really enjoy them. Very comfortable to wear with a good feel during running.
Since I can no longer run, I've purchased a pair of Hoka Valor shoes to wear, when I march on Anzac Day I find Hoka shoes ,( I have three pair) to be the most comfortable shoes that I've worn over many years of wearing sports shoes
Was a bit worried coming from the discontinued Rapa Nui 2's but these haven't disappointed, similar feel but noticeably lighter which can't hurt. May even replace my Cliftons for speed work & racing.
