The Hoka One One Stinson B Evo might just make a believer out of the biggest Hoka skeptic and even bigger fans out of the Hoka faithful. It's as if the folks at Hoka took what they learned in developing the Mafate and Bondi B, put it all together in one shoe, and then raised their game to another level. Imagine a Hoka that gives you a bit more control/responsiveness on trail as well as a heck of a lot more traction and you have the Stinson Evo. If you haven't tried Hoka, this is the model to give a first look.
"These are, by far, the best Hoka model yet!" - Bryon Powell, Editor-in-Chief of iRunFar
Note re sizing: The Stinsons are one of the only trail shoes I go up a half size, in my case from a 9 to 9.5. - Bryon
The Stinson Evo Trail is Hoka One One’s second largest midsole volume featuring vertical sidewalls with an adaptive decoupling zone to reduce load to the body on foot strike. Late meta-rocker in the forefoot makes the Stinson Evo Trail very quick from foot strike to toe off.
IDEAL USAGE: Varied terrain, mid to long distances.
COMFORT AND CUSHIONING: The midsole foam is 30% softer than the material used in traditional running shoes, and there is 2.5 times more volume than in most running shoes. The extra cushioning dissipates up to 80% of the shock associated with heel striking when running and allows for as much as 20mm of compression in the heel, plus extra protection allowing you to soar over any surface.
ROCKERED MIDSOLE GEOMETRY & LOW HEEL-TOE DIFFERENTIAL: A 4mm heel to toe drop and rockered profile creates a unique rolling motion that encourages proper form by allowing a runner to easily strike the ground near the midfoot.
CONTROL: The unique, patented bucket seat is recessed up to 20mm within the midsole unit so as to best position your foot for optimum control. This high degree of control also ensures you maintain responsive contact with the ground at all times. STABILITY: The outsole platform is 30% wider, providing a stable base and counterbalancing the excess height a voluminous midsole. Coupled with thermo-polyurethane reinforcements, provides enhanced structure and support.
SUPERIOR TRACTION: An outsole Pattern similar to an animals foot provide enhanced flexibility and precise nimble movement to adapt to the terrain underfoot. Additionally, the combination of high abrasion EVA lugs and hard wearing rubber lugs, provides enhanced, acute grip for mud and rugged terrain.
FEATHERLIGHT WEIGHT: Lighter than most road and trail running shoes less than 11 oz, they make running uphill as much fun as they make running downhill and with less body fatigue.
BENEFITS: Engineered for maximum cushioning, comfort, protection and energy return, while still offering lightweight, nimble performance and uninhibited movement. It’s all about response, power and precision for your feet, which delivers unrivalled performance — just like the Porsche 911
