Inspired by the smooth waves of the world-famous Rincon surf spot, this shoe is easily a best-in-class contender. The Rincon packs an amazing amount of cushion into an extremely lightweight shoe for an effortlessly soft, weightless sensation while running. With an upper featuring an asymmetrical design and a stripped-back profile, this shoe gives you a speedy boost that’s ready for training sessions or race day. It’s simply fast.

I am new to Hoka One One running shoes. I had seen the Carbon X reviewed and bought a pair on spec. because I'd wanted to try a pair of Hokas for quite some time. Frankly, they also weren't one of those drab black/school shoe colours that most running shoe companies seem to think that men desire. I liked them straightaway but they are very stiff and possibly best for flat race pace tempos. So almost immediately, I started to check out some other reviews and came across one for the Rincon. They sounded just what I needed, so I grabbed a pair of these as well! They are lovely runners; very light weight, but extremely comfortable and well cushioned. I really like the way they feel on my feet, especially at training pace. So far I've only put around 40+ kilometres into them, but I really couldn't be happier. I also like the Carbon X, but as a trainer, the Rincon feel (not surprisingly) a better proposition.
I found the new Rincon very lightweight, with a nice spring on take-off and super comfortable. I've only had them for a short time but done a couple of 5 km, a 10 km and a 21.1 km and love them. No problems foot wise, I could run all day in them. Out of the different hokas I've had I put these at the top of my list.
