billy mcmahonwrote a review of Hoka One One Tracer Trainer Running Shoe - Men's on November 22, 2016
Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I really wanted to like these shoes, but Hoka's design simply gave me nothing but painful blisters on my outer toes. These shoes are essentially cone-shaped around the front of the foot and very narrow at your arch, thereby creating a terrible shoe shape for distance running. I've used multiple shoe brands before (Saucony, New Balance, Newton, + other Hoka's) and have never experienced anything like the bad design of the Tracer. I switched to the Clifton 3 and have no problems... that model makes for a much better fit!
