Hoka One One Constant Review


Hoka currently provides the largest offering of maximalist shoes. With that being said, Hoka does not offer very many wide shoes. Up to this point, the Mafate 3 is really the only shoe that could fit someone with a wider-than-average foot. Until now.

The Constant is a bit wider. It certainly would not fit someone who ordinarily wears a 4E, but it might fit someone who wears a 2E.


It has a decent design and is generally well made. The tongue is seamless on one side, which provides a comfortable fit but allows for some adjustment. The shoe wraps the foot, which provides a decent, supportive feel. As stated above, there is a wider toebox (but I’m still waiting for Hoka to make shoes in widths).

The shoe has a 33mm heel and a 29mm forefoot – a 4mm drop.

The size 10 weighed in at 11 ounces – not bad!


The shoe has a satisfactory sole. The grooves are deeper than many other Hoka models. I think that makes this shoe perfect for roads and some gentle trails. The shoe retails for $160 on Running Warehouse – ouch!
