Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

When I first started running 5 years ago, the first shoe that fit perfectly was the wave rider. Since then I have owned multiple versions. Then I stopped running for a time. Since I am training for a new race I decided to get the latest version of these.

Fit is true to size. I have always worn a 12 in wave riders and these are no different.

I like the way these feel. Although it seems quite a bit different of a shoe than it used to be, I still like it. Toe box feels slightly more narrow. As with old Wave Riders, I hate how rocks tend to get stuck in the sole sometimes because of its design. These are no different.

Overall, I am happy with them, but I will probably try something new next time.

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I have never run in HOKA's before but am training for a 50m mountain race. Friends recommended the HOKA brand.

I wear a 12 usually in running shoes and bought the HOKA stinson trail shoe. I have wide feet and this was way too tight in the toe box (length was good, but not width). i sent those back.

I then ordered the Mafate trail shoe in a size 12 after hearing it was the widest in the HOKA lineup.

The Mafate fit my foot much better. The day after got them, I ran 20mi in them. Without breaking them in whatsoever, they preformed incredibly. I could not be happier.

As to their quality over time, only time and miles will tell. I will update this review after my race.

This is the best pump I've ever owned. Build quality is outstanding. It's durable and solid. It connects to valves easily and pumps like every pump should. My only gripe is probably about the base of this thing. It may be just a little smaller than it should be... yet I really wouldn't want it much bigger. I am grasping for straws to find a flaw. This pump is as good as it gets. It's a great value for the price. I highly recommend this product.
