Hoka One One recently released a cool new lightweight shoe called the Mach 4.
We had some people take it out for a spin and the results were very positive. I was actually a little surprised at how unanimous it was. Now of course, fit always matters and no shoe will fit every foot perfectly but this new version of the Mach is really hitting it out of the park for a lot of people.
Our beloved testers gave the shoe an overall rating of 5 out of 5! Guys, that definitely is not always how that goes.
They rated the feeling of support in the shoe at a 4 or 5 out of 5.
Everyone gave the cushioning a rating of 4 or 5 out of 5 (and obviously this is effected by what you are used to and prefer- so I was pleasantly surprised to see it rated highly by different people).
And every tester rated the Responsiveness of the shoe at a 5 out of 5! That was also unanimous.
Guys, no shoe is perfect or for everyone- but I have to say this new Mach really is a great offering.
The testers commented on how they liked the soft feel of the upper material of the shoe and how light and effortless the transition was. One tester, who described this Mach as her new favorite daily road shoe, said the shoe was “zippy.” I don’t know about you, but I could use some more zippiness in my life.
If you are in the market for a light neutral trainer this update from Hoka really might be great for your road and treadmill workouts. This is definitely worth consideration.
Come on in to Eclipse or Reno Running Company and check it out. And of course, if you need or want more cushioning or more support- we can help you there too! Keep running beautiful people!
