CUSTOMER RATINGS & REVIEWS
- half size
The shoes are great. FIrst time trying Hoka's and I like them so far. Beware, they run a bit large. I had to size down 1/2 a size. Marathon, as always, gets 5 stars for customer service.
I’ve run in Mizuno Wave Inspire’s for the last 8 years. However, n the last couple months, in the midst of the pandemic, I’ve opted to run commute to and from work at the hospital to avoid taking public transportation, and the multiple runs per day with a pack were taking a impact-filled toll on my feet and the rest of my lower body. I thought a more cushioned ride would work better for me, so I set up a virtual fit with the Marathon Sports staff, and they recommended these Hoka Arahi’s. They’ve been amazing! My joints and muscles have stayed fresher, longer, and the ride has been surprisingly responsive even with all that cushion. The toe box is very large, which makes me wonder if I could even go down a half size, but so far, they’ve generally been great.
I did a virtual fitting, my first of any kind of fitting, with Jarred. Fitting seemed thorough and Jarred was willing to deal with my Zoom conking out and my four year old holding the phone for the fitting. He was kind and willing to help!
