Way to go Venture Sports! Congrats Al and Kris — well deserved award Rep of the Year for Hoka One One: http://venturesportsgroup.com/2013/12/11/venture-sports-wins-hoka-one-one-sales-agency-of-the-year/
The Asics Gel Fuji Setsu is a game changer for running on icy and snowy trails as I often do all winter long but unfortunately it is about as common as clean winter air in UT. I couldn’t find any in this colorway for sale in the US and most of the pairs I did find were either in another country or old stock.
This is a video follow up to my original review that can be found here where I cut a Hoka One One Evo Stinson in half so I could see what makes it tick. The video shows a little more gory detail than the original posting and I bust out a ruler for some measurements.
Hoka One One is building on current buzz by releasing a number of 2014 models here on display at The Austin Running Event Trade Show. Three of the models coming out next year improve on their strong (and cushiony!) platform. Read on for a mini-shoe review.
2014 Hoka One One Evo Stinson ATR
The 2014 Stinson ATR has a completely redesigned upper that allowed Hoka to shave a full ounce from this mid-weight shoe. This new upper appears to be mostly seamless with some additional structural/stabilization features in the heel area. The tongue looks trimmed down and more comfortable as well while the tread of the shoe, although similar to the 2013 model appears to be a bit more sturdy and may be less likely to break down as some of complained about and as I have experienced.
