Built to soar, the men's lightweight Hoka One One Stinson Trail-Running Shoes feature voluminous midsoles to reduce load on your body, and built-in rocker in the forefeet to propel you forward.
- REI refers to the men's version
The unique underfoot platform on the Hoka One One Men's Stinson Trail Running Shoe enables you to hang tough through long runs on rough trails. With 2. 2 times the midsole cushioning of most other running shoes and 30% wider contact surface with the ground, the Stinson offers both one-of-a-kind comfort and excellent stability and traction. But don't worry, you aren't paying a weight penalty for this performance; its ultra-lightweight design (15% lighter than most running shoes) means you tire less running uphill while its speedy downhill performance makes it ideal for adventure racing. Within the Hoka One One line of revolutionary running shoes, the Stinson Trail offers the second-largest volume midsole (just behind the Mafate), and while it features the same midsole as the Stinson Road, it is slightly stiffer and offers a gripper outsole for rough terrain.

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.
