Sneaker Love: HOKA ONE ONE

I've never worn more sneakers in my life than I have this past year. With the need for more physical activity and the newfound acceptance of all-day comfort, lace up trainers have been in constant rotation. While I'm not a serious runner, I love to play tennis, go on short jogs and take long hikes. And squeezing in any kind of exercise throughout my week has had a profoundly positive impact on my mental health, especially these days when it feels like I'm juggling so much. This new normal has inspired me to branch out and thanks to HOKA ONE ONE, I've discovered some new favorites that have come into play in my everyday lifestyle.

Clifton Edge

The first thing you might notice about the Clifton Edge is its oversized and extended heel. There's good reason for this! The super wide platform softens those heel strikes for smooth and effortless running (or jogging). It's also insanely lightweight - a quality that makes it perfect for street wear too!

Mach 4

The Mach 4 is hands down my favorite and most practical sneaker to date. It's incredibly soft and bouncy. Plushy yet light. I love this style for its versatility - I wear the Mach 4 for just about any occasion, from long walks to the tennis court!

Speedgoat 4

The Speedgoat 4 is most unique sneaker I've tried. For rougher terrains and more adventurous conditions, this thick soled sneaker is meant to help you tackle the elements. The Vibram Megagrip outsole and deep lugs are made up of a sticky rubber compound that grip well on slippery and loose terrain. The Speedgoat puts that spring in your step, literally!

Clifton Edge

The Clifton Edge again because I love it so much . . . this time in a different color way. While I love this style for jogging, it also my go-to for running errands around town.

      I would say the Mach 4s are more versatile. But the Cliftons are SO lightweight. If you think the extra heel will bother you, however, I would recommend the Mach 4s!
