This is the first in a series of shoe profiles, in which we call-out a particular Hoka One One model deserving of a closer look.
Today we put the spotlight on the Hoka One One Stinson ATR.
With its maximalist design and intense cushioning, the Hoka One One Stinson ATR emerged as a revolutionary improvement to the trail running shoe industry.
At $249.95 the Stinson ATR comes in mid-range when compared to its Hoka brother and sisters. An investment yes, but, when one considers the performance and durability of the Stinsons, it is money well spent.
Arch support and pronation control
Being a neutral shoe, the Stinson ATR offers good support and control but is not suitable for the overpronator.
Being one of the more upscale trail running shoes, the Stinson ATR is at home on a multitude of surfaces. Dirt, rocks, mud, you name it, and the Stinson can handle it.
With its lightweight, no-sew SpeedFrame Construction, you can rest assured that the Stinson ATR is made to last. Protected against debris, you can run for hours in this pair and barely notice any evidence of wear and tear.
Fit and sizing
While the Stinson ATR appears bulky and oversized, do not be fooled, as it actually provides an exceptional fit for your feet. The cushioning inside also helps in giving your feed a good grip preventing unwanted movement.
At 332 grams for the men’s version and 283 for the women’s the Hoka One One Stinson ATR is a moderately weighted pair of trail running shoes optimised for better protection, grip and performance.
Despite their seemingly bulky appearance, the Stinson ATR has a very low heel to toe drop (6mm), making running in them an amazing experience – think running on a cloud.
The Hoka One One Stinson ATR is an exceptional pair of trail running shoes. With its focus on traction, motion control, debris protection and performance, they really are like running on a cloud.
