Another bold innovation from the design team that continues to reframe the way runners approach traditional notions of control and stability. The Constant is Hoka's widest fitting model yet, with a real focus on stable, comfortable ground contact when it's needed most. A smart combination of soft foams and highly springy foams shaped asymmetrically through the midsole to mirror the biomechanics of the foot and especially its moments of greatest need has resulted in one of the most incredibly comfortable and intuitive Hoka OneOne road models yet conceived.

We recently purchased a pair of Hoka One shoes on sale they were exactly as expected in terms of style, fit and delivery performance. I would recommend Hoka on the basis of my experience
I am an average sized 51year old woman weighing 61kg with left knee lateral meniscus removed four years ago, left foot bunion removal and metatarsal spur removal four months ago, right foot with bad arthritis from old sport injury (my surgeon said that normal people with my ankle condition do not usually run). Over many years I have run in so many different shoe brand nearly gave it up due to poor recovery and stress on the body until I discovered Hoka Womens Constant. It took a couple of runs to get used to the cushioning, now it feels like running on clouds and although I can only run short distances (5km daily) it has renewed my joy of running. The wide fitting is also ideal for my feet.
I wear orthotics for severe Plantar fasciitis in both feet, 6 weeks ago I had surgery on both feet for multiple Morton's Neuromata (multiple 11-13mm lesions removed), lots of physio & still after all this as well as thousands of dollars on expensive runners over the past 5 years I still have not been able to walk/jog just 10kms a day without severe pain & discomfort that is until the purchase of the Hoka brand Womens Constant. I'm having very mild discomfort in the forefront of 1 foot but that is only at the end of the 10km's. I can live with that, success finally. My orthotics fit in really well & the width of the shoe makes a huge difference to comfort. I will be purchasing a 2nd pair this month only because I never want to be without them while exercising.
I usually wear the Stinson Trail model but after a foot reconstruction one foot is swollen and larger than the other and getting in and out of my usual shoes is painful. With these the fit is more relaxed and I can get in with no pain - wonderful. The colour of the berry coloured variety that I got is magnificent. I love Hoka One One shoes and have a large number - this is b/c I have RA and with involvement of my mtp joints I can walk around in them with no pain as the softer midsole ( I presume) is cushioning. Consequently I wear them all the time - even to work. I am aware that they are marketed to runners but I think they are also helpful to people with foot problems and I am highlighting this aspect of their excellence.
I love wearing my Hoka One running/track shoe. They are so comfortable. Have ordered three pairs - the ones I am wearing for my PE/Sport classes and 2 are put a side. I use to wear New Balance, but since a friend recommended Hoka One I have not turned back. My knees do not ever hurt on very long walks - that was the test. Great job!
