Yes.......I like the colour!
I have 2 main reasons for choosing Hokas- both as I require v good cushioning.
1. I have a lowish bone density(confirmed by a DEXA bone scan). Consultant says I am ok to run; but not marathons any more.
2. I have had a Morton's neuroma removed surgically from my foot. Consultant thought it was brought on by running?? The area of foot that the neuroma was excised from is permanently numb.
I have been considering Hokas for a little while after being introduced to them at the ParkRun. One of the runners there suffered 3 stress fractures. He bought the Hokas to protect his feet and hopefully prevent further stress fractures. About 10 years ago, I suffered 2 metatarsal stress fractures and a tibial stress fracture. I now take calcium supplements, have reduced my mileage and increased my weight- all to help prevent future stress fractures. I usually run in Nike Vomeros and I fancied a 2nd pair of trainers to rotate. The hokas were on offer for £89.99. Yes- still expensive!!
Has anyone else tried the Hokas? What do you think?
