HOKA ONE ONE TORRENT 2 MEN
The Torrent 2 differs from other HOKA trail shoes in several ways: first, it looks more like a standard trail shoe, and by that, I mean that the stack height is more in line with a New Balance Leadville than a HOKA Stinson. Second, it offers more traction than most other HOKA trail shoes I’ve tried (aside from the insanely aggressive EVO Jawz). And finally– this may be a sub-bullet of the first two points since it’s likely due to a combination of those elements– it is much firmer. I’m listing these things under “good” because, in general, I think these are the positive elements of the shoe. Unless, like me, you’re a diehard Speedgoat fan.
