Rated 5 out of 5 by from best Hoka's ever I am a runner/triathlete ( marathoner and Ironman). I have run in almost every shoe out there, always looking for the golden one. This is my favorite shoe by far. The Bondi was my favorite, but three weeks ago I got these and have been using them ever since. From the moment I put them on I knew I would love them. I need a stability shoe and most stability shoes are heavy and lack cushioning. Many Hoka's ( like the Clayton) offer cushioning but my feet move around in them- too much wiggle room. But these are a gem. They hold my ankle in place, and they offer just the right amount of cushioning. I wear a size 7.5- and I bought these in an 8. Happy feet, happy running.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super stable and comfortable Ran six miles the first time I wore them and could tell they were going to be my new favorite. I have worn them several times now. The thick sole adds a lot of cushion without the weight - so light. I have to run a lot of concrete and pavement in my area and wanted something more maximalist to absorb impact. I have tried several styles of Skechers shape ups and runners with thick soles and had a lot of issues rolling my ankles. These Hokas are high but have a wider, more stable base and your foot sits into it rather than on top of it. I've run flats and hills with NO worrying of rolling ankle. The design is just great. I have had surgeries on both feet and these are very supportive but still comfy. Absolutely love them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My favorite Hoka so far!! I absolutely love the feel of this shoe on my foot, even though they are a bit too snug. They fit my foot like a glove, and the cushioning is unbelievable. The arch support seems to be just right for me.They are the most comfortable shoes I have had on my foot in a long time, I have tried several brands and styles out there. Along with that, they are super cute! I figured that I wouldn't be able to wear them running, as they are a bit snug and I could use a women's 11 1/2 which Hoka does not yet make !!! BUT, now that they come in a wide, thank you, I am keeping these for jeans and ordering another pair!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy Feet! Recently, the bottoms of my feet would hurt so bad just a few miles into my run. My shoes weren't that old and were the brand I had run in for years. I needed a change. I had always wanted to try Hokas, but avoided them because I feared that they wouldn't give me the support I need. The Arahi is amazing and aleviated all my fears. My feet haven't felt this good in a while and I have had no problems with stability. So far, they are awesome! I have had a couple 10+mile runs and several 5 milers. I even did a little speed work with some hill repeats. A few days after I got them, I was out on a run and ran by my local Fleet Feet. I just had to run in and tell them my feet say thank you for putting me in a "run-life" changing shoe!:)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally! Thank you for finally making a shoe that is comparable to your discontinued Stinson Tarmac. You lost me as a customer for quite a while as none of your other styles were roomy enough, especially when my feet swell after busy 12 hour shifts as a nurse or when my plantar fasciitis flares up. These are so comfortable, plenty of room, my feet did not hurt at all, even after two 12 hour shifts in a row. That hasn't happened since you stopped making the Tarmac. I highly recommend the Arahi Wide Width.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My New Favorite! This is my 2nd pair of Hokas. Last year I tried the Bondi model after suffering from plantar fasciitis. Bought this pair 3 days ago, took them out of the box, and ran a half marathon with no problems! These shoes are much lighter than I expected, and were incredibly comfortable. There were no sore spots, blisters, or any other areas of discomfort with these shoes! I plan to buy another pair to save as a spare. Well done, Hoka!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love the cushion, but hate the blisters! I love the shoe for its cushion and stability, but going over 4 miles I got blisters on my arches and the balls of my feet. It has been very painful to train for my race. Someone suggested I take out the foot bed because where it hit my arch/ball of foot is what it seemed to be where my blisters were. After taking out the foot bed, it has been great and I've been able to train again with no issues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Magic Shoes! I call these shoes my Magic Shoes because without them I couldn't have run my races! I was wearing a shoe that was not appropriate for me (thanks alot Dicks Sporting). Four days before I was to run a 10k (Saturday) and a Half (Sunday), I couldn't run more than 4 miles without my shins and the outside of my calf hurting so bad I cried. After walking home the last mile I made the call to speak with a company to be analyzed. I wore my current running shoes in (limping because of the pain) and after chatting for a bit and analyzing my walk and run he immediately brought me these shoes. I'm not going to lie, at first I was not happy because they looked so... chunky. However, the moment I stood up in them I was AMAZED! There was no pain! NONE! I walked around and he had me run and I had the hugest smile because the comfort was like nothing I have had in a running shoe before.These shoes are FANTASTIC! I immediately did a short run in them when I went home and was so excited!!! I ran my races and had THE shortest recovery time for my shins/calves than ever before! These will forever be my running shoe! (I have the Hoka Arahi)
