Fat, fun and funky.

After constant whining to the manager, the running store where I have my weekend “hobby job” is stocking Hoka Stinsons. It’s a great shoe, and the Stinson, with a more forward rocker panel is easier to adjust to than the Tarmac. The Stinson road feel reminds me of the earlier 3 peg Newtons and is perfect for forefoot strikers-or anyone wanting to become more of a forefoot striker. Hokas look fat, heavy and inflexible (sorta like me, I suppose), but they ride like a minimalist shoe you point and shoot. Granted, I’ll never mistake these for my racing weapon of choice, the Mizuno Wave Sayonara, but the Sayonara maxes out for me at a marathon. The Hokas are for an all terrain, all day run.

And, best of all, they look like a prop out of that color drenched gem, The Beatles “Yellow Submarine”.
