Hoka One One Constant Review

IMG_0980

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!
