Woman walking in HOKA Arahi 7 in the color Blanc De Blanc/Rose Gold

HOKA has a style for everyone and everything. Running, walking, lifestyle, hiking, waterproof, recovery, you name it – HOKA’s got it.

HOKA has skyrocketed to popularity and has quickly become synonymous with comfort and performance. It’s one of our fan-favorite brands here at Stan’s, and we’re not surprised!

Here’s what we (and the world!) love about HOKA:

  • Cushion – lots of it. HOKA is known for its thick layer of midsole cushioning, which provides a plush, balanced, shock-absorbing ride.
  • Momentum. HOKA’s meta-rocker smoothly moves your foot through each stride, providing energetic propulsion.
  • Stability. HOKA’s Active Foot Frame keeps your heel locked in so you feel secure and confident in your fit.

Stan’s Fit For Your Feet is your one-stop shop for HOKA shoes in Milwaukee. Check out a few of our favorite styles below, then shop online or visit one of our three locations to try on whichever pair catches your eye. We’ll see you there!

Best HOKA Running Shoes 

All of HOKA’s shoes are excellent running options, but these are two of our favorites:

The HOKA Solimar is a great choice for the everyday runner. Here’s what’s notable:

  • Neutral construction means that the Solimar doesn’t have extra prescriptive measures to guide your gait. This is best for those who don’t overpronate or are free from plantar fasciitis. 
  • Balanced cushion provides comfort while still being responsive. 
  • A high-abrasion rubber outsole ensures extra durability and longer shoe life.

The Arahi 7 is good for runners who need some extra support, including those who overpronate. Here’s what’s notable:

  • Stability construction means that the Arahi 7 has features that guide your foot to control overpronation and other stride concerns such as plantar fasciitis.
  • A flat-knit upper makes this style breathable, while zonally engineered areas provide snugness for extra security.
  • A super-plush tongue that’s locked in place by a dual gusset stops uncomfortable movement and rubbing.

The Solimar and Arahi are available in men’s and women’s styles in store and online now.

Best HOKA Shoes for Walking & Lifestyle

HOKA’s two most popular styles are certainly the Bondi and Clifton, for reasons ranging from comfort to style to performance. Both are great for runners or for those simply looking for a comfortable pair of shoes to take on the day.

The Bondi is a foundational style for HOKA and provides a great foundation for you. Here’s what’s notable:

  • A thick layer of midsole cushioning rejuvenates tired feet and absorbs the impact of each footfall, protecting your ankles and joints.
  • The wide sole helps spread pressure evenly throughout your feet, preventing areas of soreness
  • A large toe box and mesh upper give your toes plenty of room to spread, improving flexibility and preventing cramped toes.

From TikTok fame to word on the street, the Clifton is always a winner. Here’s what’s notable. 

  • Lightweight but supportive, the Clifton has tons of cushioning without feeling heavy on your feet.
  • This style is good for the environment, as it’s certified vegan and constructed with recycled materials.
  • The American Medical Podiatric Association gave this style its seal of acceptance, meaning a team of foot doctors have agreed that the Clifton promotes healthy feet.

The Bondi and Clifton are available in men’s and women’s styles in store and online now.

Best HOKA Hiking Shoes

The great outdoors are no match for a pair of HOKAs! Here are our favorite picks for hitting the trails. 

Both the Anacapa and the Kaha have the following notable attributes:

  • A variety of styles makes it easy for you to choose the version most comfortable for you. Low-rise versus mid rise and Gore-Tex versus non-Gore-Tex mean you can take your pick of comfort and performance.
  • Many Anacapa and Kaha styles are made with Gore-Tex (FTX) fabric, which combines waterproofing and breathability to keep your feet dry in all conditions. Waterproof nubuck leather also helps prevent excess water from soaking into your shoes.
  • The Vibram® Megagrip outsole is well-named, as it creates traction in slippery conditions.

The Anacapa and Kaha are available in men’s and women’s styles in store and online now.
