Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Boot I think Hoka did a very good job designing this boot. I don't understand some of the reviewers stating this is a narrow boot. My foot is wide 10.5 2EE and I wear an 11 in these and it's perfect. Plenty room in the forefoot, and the upper stretches. The boot is extremely stable with good cushioning and a great rocker sole. I use mine alot around town, as well as hiking the trails. I can't attest to it's waterproofness as I haven't crossed any creeks yet. The inside is lined with Event, which is similar to Gortex. Just note it will never be as waterproof as a full grain leather boot because of all the seams. One more thing... this boot is very light.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Comfortable on bottom, not so much on top. I bought these a while ago for trip on inca trail next week and just started wearing them to break in. When I first got them couldn't believe the combination of cushion and lightweight. Now that I am wearing them more I realize the top of shoe is not so comfortable. Shoe and toe box are narrow but I have a narrow foot so I like that...but the toe box is too low and my baby toes and area below big toe are hitting top of shoe. I have a high arch and the tighter fit is not good. The bottom of my feet are great. A little more volume. I suppose I could have gone up a half size but no REI stores nearby to try on. Oh well hope i get use to them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Hiking Boot I've tried a lot of running shoes and hiking boots over the years, but these shoes are one of my favorite. I use them for walking & hiking over rocky terrain. I'm thinking of getting a second pair just for use around town they are that comfortable. I have flat wide feet. These shoes surprisingly are wide enough (although I would like to see Hoka make more wide models) and are very stable. Keep making this shoe !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Truely the first real hiking shoe from Hoka I am an avid hiker, longest hike was the 850 km Camino in Spain. Walked it twice in a traditional hiking boot. In my mid 50s, overweight and my knees are starting to hurt. Drawn to Hokas because of their signature cushioning. I evaluated the Tor Summit few months ago. And was not impressed at all with its flimsy upper and soft cushioning for any serious hiking. Some reviews i have read confirmed my suspicion. This week I just happen to browse through REI and saw this new Tor tech hikers. Coming from a traditional vibram boots, I wasn't sure why Hoka eliminated the Vibram in this iteration. Had some discussion with Rei and Hoka reps and they confirmed to me that the sticky rubber is similar to the rubber on the popular Salomon boots. Decided to give it a try. Compared to the Tor summit, i was indeed impressed with the construction of the boot, the upper is firmer and have lot more panels to increase breathability, good reinforcements around the hooks and stiffer toe/heel guards to protect against abrasion. The outsole feels very rugged as opposed to the soft lugs in the mid section of the summit. The boot also hugs to your feet, much narrower fit. No free space anywhere except at the pointy toe area. I have a wide feet. Had to size upto US 11 (my normal size is 9.5) to get my foot into the boot. Normally mid cut hiking shoes are given higher volume around the gusset to ease getting the boot on/off. So, if yo have a high volume feet, be warned. Without a brek-in, I already hiked two 5 mile hikes, climbing to the top of the Cascade mountain (4095 ft). This trail has about 2000 ft elevation gain, multiple rocky ascents/descents, some scrambling, scree/mud. Overall very impressive with the Techs performance. The traction is awesome. On descents, so confident with its traction, i was even going over boulders that i normally consider as too steep. My arc area seems to be a bit sore. Never had this before. My guess is this is due to the lack of sufficient width in the forefoot and its putting pressure on my big toe bones. Few more hikes to see if this improves.... One cautionary note on the stability. The stack height is high (36 mm heel). its structure is designed to lower ones feet closer to the midsole to improve stability. Well, if you place another orthotics into this structure, it will elevate your feet and alter its geometry. In multiple instances, when landing on uneven surfaces, my heel moved and almost twisted my ankles. So be extra careful on uneven terrain, specially if you are heavier like me. Overall Hoka has made significant improvements to the Tor Tech compared to the Summit. You will love this boot if you have a medium to narrow foot. I have given 5 stars as the issues I am having has to do with my feet than the boot per se. Hoka if you are listening, serious long distance hikers/trekkers prefer more room in the toe box. Why is it difficult to have at least a single trail shoe in your line-up with wide forefoot?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Used two pairs of the Tor Tech boots while thru-hi I used two pairs of Tor Techs while I thru hiked the Appalachian Trail in 2017. I wore the first pair 700 miles and they still had life left in them when I swapped to the new pair. I wore out the second pair while completing the hike, wearing them for over 900 miles. The mesh in the toe area wore out on the second pair and they were no longer water proof during the last month of my hike. The boots stayed intact the soles remained grippy and me feet were well protected. The sticky rubber soles gripped wet rock better than any other hiking boots or shoes I've owned. Overall, these are the most comfortable hiking boots I've ever owned. I'll definitely purchase another pair of them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best product found for Plantar Fasciitis Great product, second purchase from Hoka. I also have the Stinson 3 ATR shoes for running and training. Shoes are comfortable right out of box. I spend a lot of time standing on concrete and dirt. These boots have really helped dealing with plantar fasciitis. Lifesaver products.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not A True Hiking Boot These boots are very comfortable and gave me no issues regarding blisters. I went through 2 pairs of these and neither pair lasted more than 200 miles before the material on the top of the toe began to tear. By mile 300 the material was completely gone on my first pair. They are being sold as hiking boots, but they are nowhere near durable enough.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very Disappointed I fell in love with my Hoka Bondi 5's about a year ago. I liked them so much I wanted to translate the lightweight comfort to the trail, as I am a avid hiker and backpacker with some old mechanical injuries. So I ordered the Tor Tech WP Mids. After breaking them in on flat ground for 10 miles I was ready to hit the trail with them. Once I started ascending on the trail I could tell immediately they were causing hot spots on my heels. I put in 31 miles that weekend with lots of elevation changes and ended up with 6 different blisters and very disappointed in the construction of the heal cup of this boot. Upon inspection there is a very pronounced stitching on the back of the heal cup witch is causing recurring blisters. Weeks later, after my feet healed and I added some insoles I gave them another try on a 5 mile AT trail. Same results, within a mile both heals had blisters. As much as I like the lightweight stable construction of this boot I was very disappointed in the stitching placement and attention put into the heal cup. I would encourage your company to rethink the design of stitching inside this boot. Do you offer any boots with out this heal cup stitching draw back? Now I just have an expensive pair of boots I'll never use again. Please help me...

Questions & Answers

Is the Hoka Tor Tech MID boot on your site is the same as the Hoka Adventure MID boot advertised on Hoka site? If not what are the differences? Is this a replacement to the Tor Summit shoes? Thanks

Asked by: Limo
It's a very different boot than either the Tor Summit or the Tor Ultra. The Tor summit has a fairly traditional Vibram sole and a leather/pleather upper; the Tor Ultra has lacing features that you'd expect on a typical hiking boot but a very soft and cushy midsole. The Tor Tech rides much closer to the ground, more like their Challenger trail runner, and seems to fit more evenly throughout the foot, with a wider toe box than the Summit. Hoka doesn't bill it as the Summit's replacement, but the people at Hoka I talked to were more stoked about it as a "real" fast-hiker than the Summit. Best to try it on.

I wear a size 12 in Torr Summit; due to the concerns some folks are having, would it be best to get a 12.5 or stay with a 12?

Asked by: warden462
​We recommend ordering a half size up from your standard HOKA ONE ONE shoe size.
