The CONQUEST 3 is ideal for a runner who is looking for cushioning, but wants a firm, more responsive ride. This update features a suspension midsole built with an EVA top-layer that gives the signature HOKA ONE ONE cushioning, while the RMAT® body delivers a perfect blend of underfoot support and responsiveness. The Conquest 3 also features a more accommodating width in the forefoot for added comfort, and a more secure midfoot fit. This style is a great option for runners looking for a more structured shoe.
HOKA are a unique shoe brand and their specialism is providing more cushioning than any other shoe manufacturer (up to 3 times more). The shoes are ideal for marathon running, ultra distance and general high mileage training. They are also popular with heavier runners and those who suffer recurring injuries caused by impact. The stack height is large due to the volume of cushioning provided, this makes the shoe looks extremely bulky and a little äóÖoddäó». Due to their excessive size, many people think they will also be heavy, but their looks are deceptive. The Conquest weighs in at 330g, which is not bad for such a beast. The conquest has a different mid-sole than the Stinson Lite which makes it a little more responsive rather than just being äóÖsoftäó». The drop on the HOKA Conquest is 4mm, which promotes forefoot running and all HOKA shoes have a äóÖrocker systemäó» which reduces heel impact and encourage a heel to toe rolling action. Pretty much all HOKA are neutral shoes, so thereäó»s no real support option. Try the Stinson Lite for similar shoes in the range.Œæ - See more at: http://www.theendurancestore.com/proddetail.php?prod=hokaconquestwomens#sthash.tulqFaK7.dpuf
