I am onto my 2nd pair of Challenger ATR5's and my wide, flat feet have never been happier. I wear orthotics and they fit so nicely in the shoe. I recently purchased the boot equivalent of the shoe, (online and without trying them on) the Challenger Women's Mid GTX Boot in order to keep my feet dry and cosy during winter. I had a chance to test them out last weekend and they are fantastic. They felt exactly like the trail runners I had been using and even on their first outing were super comfy. My feet stayed dry and cosy all day. I'm super impressed with these and my feet are happy.
I already own Hoka Bondi, Clifton and summit. So I took a risk, bought these online having not tried on. They look awesome and we’re instantly super comfortable. The loops at the top are a little tricky but I’m sure I’ll get use to them and they’ll get easier. I’m a podiatrist and I invest in good footwear knowing how important your feet are. These are a great investment!! Thanks Hoka team
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!
