I have enjoyed wearing Hoka work out shoes for a year, so when I needed a pair of hiking boots I gave them a try, they are as comfortable as my work out shoes and nothing to break in (unlike other boots I have had). They are a bit hard to get on for me (previously had a foot surgery but getting easier over time. I would happily recommend them, and have already! I am a Hoka fan!
