The Hoka OneOne Demo Tour will be live shortly. If you didn’t get along to any of our demo runs last year, it’s a simple but very fresh idea.
Based from a running group, tri group, or specialist shoe store’s venue of choice, we (Hoka) turn up with a bunch of our latest shoes. You put on a pair that fits. We all go for a run, 5 to 15km depending what everybody’s up for. If you enjoy yourself, you can buy shoes from our stockist. If you don’t, well that’s a shame. Maybe next time.
See what we’re saying? It’s all for you, the runner, and at no obligation.
Central Coast, Melbourne, and Brisbane dates are to be confirmed, as are more dates around Sydney, Penrith , and Cronulla.
The Running Company, Potts Point. Wednesday August 8th, 6:30pm .
FootPoint Shoe Clinic, Mosman. Saturday August 18th, 8am.
Forster in cooperation with Mary Yule’s running group and Manning Shoes, Saturday August 25th, 7am. Venue TBA
More dates and locations to come. Get to the one nearest to you.

Over the next 7 weeks, we’ll be bringing Stinson Evo, Bondi B, and the all new road ripping Tarmac to our retailers across Sydney, as well as running groups, podiatrists, and fitness clubs for you to test out properly on runs of 30-60 minutes. You’ll have the very unusual chance to properly try out running shoes before buying them, or not buying them.
We’ll be collecting contact details and putting everyone who tries our hot new road shoe or other shoes in our range into the draw for a hot new pair of Hoka OneOne and our new tech running singlet – all in time for a season of hot summer running.
Sydney Running Centre, Northside Runners, Runnulla, Panthers Cycles, Dr. Foot Solutions dates to be announced…

The new Stinson Evo Tarmac is a speedy and responsive joy to run in. Firmer through the sole than other Hoka OneOne models because of reduced foam in the toe and a shaved down durable rubber outsole, we’ve put 100 road kilometres on the pair we unboxed last Thursday and they’re everything that was hoped for and more.
I would even rate these as a shoe to consider racing groomed firetrail, but they are clearly intended for half and long course triathletes and anyone else running anywhere from 10km and upward on road, pavement, and – believe it or not – tarmac.
The tongue sits nicely even though it’s quite thin, and the upper breathes beautifully which will be ideal as the capital city half and full marathons kick in over the next few months. The structure is highly stable and well engineered but both the sole and upper are yielding enough to ensure a snug fit becomes a conforming fit over the first ten 10 to 15 hours of wear.
Simply a pleasure to run hard in, these should be the breakthrough shoe for Hoka OneOne, continuing a foray into the wider running population initiated by the Bondi and accelerated by the Stinson Evo Trail.
Available now from future-focussed running shoe specialists and appearing soon on www.HokaOneOne.com.au.

Here’s a great bit of feedback from Melbourne OxFam Trailwalker competitor David Hughes over the weekend:
Yesterday I completed the Melbourne Oxfam Trailwalker 100km in 15 hours wearing a pair of Hoka One One Stinson Evo’s. These have to be the best distance shoe I’ve ever worn. Last year I alternated between road and trail shoes depending on what the terrain was but no need with the Evo’s. Today I have no pain in my feet or legs other than the usual stiffness from such a distance. I don’t even have a blister! The only problem I’ve found since I bought them 4weeks and 260km ago is they aren’t good for fast corners. The exceptional downhill stability and comfort more than make up for it. Love my shoes-I’m a Hoka convert!
