Recently I tried Hokas again since I have been diagnosed as needing a hip replacement and I was looking for a cushioned shoe to walk in. Not to run in since it hurts to run. Three years ago when I was running well I tried Hokas but they were too much cushion for me while running and my calf locked up while running in them. But now, with my hip injury, the Hokas felt great for walking. So I bought a pair and the are my daily walk around shoe. Maybe after my hip replacement this Fall I’ll even run in my Hokas. We’ll see.
