Like trying to walk through Soft Sand ALL DAY
Bought the shoes from Athletes Foot Rouse Hill on recommendation from staff. The shoes were super soft when trying them on in the shop. They were so soft that every other shoe I tried on felt thin and hard under foot. Upon wearing them for more than an hour to begin with they quickly became a living hell. Theyre so soft and bouncy that they actually cause you to become unstable on your feet and can cause you to lose balance and trip. Theyre like trying to walk on a bunch of pillows on the ground and just as dangerous. Dont Buy These!
Absolute rubbish- stay away from this brand
Bought the women's Arahi 4 on the advice of my podiatrist for my plantar fasciitis. They definitely are extremely comfortable in the beginning but after 6 months holes appeared in the inner lining of both shoes, hurting my feet through my sox, then the sole came away from the shoe on my right foot. Cost a lot of money but not worth it. I've had much longer lifespans from other joggers.
No customer service
Bought a pair of Hoka one one Bondi 7 on the salespersons advice. On wearing them for the first time i got a sore lower back. Same happened on the second wear. Emailed Hoka twice and ABSOLUTELY no response.
Emailed the store i purchased from and they emailed Hoka with NO response. Very expensive sneakers that i can't wear. In America they give you a 30 day money back guarantee. Unfortunately Hoka in Australia has no phone number you can call. I am so very disappointed in their lack of customer service. Would never recommend them to anyone. Save your money and buy a reputable brand who has decent customer service and cares about their reputation and happy clients. STAY away from HOKA!!!!!
Comfortable...BUT first outing got a stick through the sole. Very slippery on some surfaces. Worn through inner lining for a blister. I cannot recommend and they are expensive. Good around the house.
My Bondi 7 gave away the back cushion support within 5 months
I bought this on 30th December 2020 from Athletics foot, Burwood. It was recommended as a better shoe than Asics. It was used only for walking and used twice a week. It lost its cushion support around the Achilles within 5 months. The plastic is harder and hurts the Achilles and damages the socks. What a waste of money, whereas my previous Asics pair lasted more than 4 years and still going.
Comfortable but terrible quality
Unbelievably comfortable but ripped away from the sole on the sides of both shoes after.. wait for it.. 3 months. Terrible quality for $260 purchased at Athletes Foot. I have a daggy old pair on New Balance that have lasted over 2 years. Please don’t waste your money for utopian levels of comfort for only 3 months of use.
Expensive. Not fit for purpose as a triathlon sneakers as they feel heavier. Clumsy with higher cushion. Worst of all, it is a blisters maker. I have to wrap my feet on bandaids every time I wear them. I don't recommend at all.
Poor quality shoe do not buy
We bought black Hoka One Shoes last May they did not even last 10 months of normal use. Top of shoe pulled away from sole. Inside heel area completely deteriorated
Hoka : Not fit for purpose
Bought a pair of Hoka runners and they didn't even last 6 months even when only using them for walking. Took back to the Athletes Foot in Perth and they said too bad so sad. So $260 for a pair for runners that didn't last 6 months (the inside of the heal wore out and the plastic inside the shoe was exposed that resulted in blisters). Remember this is an expensive runner that was advertised as a runner that was only used for walking - and the "runner" still wore out!
PRODUCT IS NOT FOR FOR PURPOSE
Hoka postal address and contact options
As a Hoka customer I find it amazing that the national Hoka distribution franchise business does not list a postal address or an Email contact on their website. Also severely limited range of colour options here in Australia, with the male Rincon model being available in at least 7 colours in the USA and just 1 here in Australia.
Customer service rip off
I bought a pair of HOKA Bondi shoes my 5th pair of HOKA shoes, after 4-5 months the shoes fell apart on both sides along the glue lines, they have said it is because of normal wear and tear! Shoes coming apart along the glue lines is not normal wear and tear, this is my 5th pair and has never happened before. So far no help or acknowledgement that shoe is faulty.
