Hoka One One Chal­lenger ATR 3 £100

Runner's World (UK) - - Trail Special -

We’ve liked pre­vi­ous ver­sions of the Chal­lenger ATR be­cause it’s a trail-wor­thy ver­sion of the ex­cel­lent, light­weight and speedy Clifton road shoe. Our only gripe with those ear­lier mod­els was a rather-too-snug fore­foot. For ver­sion 3, testers re­ported that the toe­box felt roomy. It’s one of the few tweaks Hoka has made to the shoe, thank­fully opt­ing to leave much else as it was. The mid­sole and out­sole are nearly iden­ti­cal to ear­lier ver­sions, though the lugs in the mid­dle of the fore­foot have been spaced out, which means it will be eas­ier to shed mud. The up­per is breath­able yet more durable, thanks to 3D-printed over­lays that help hold the foot steady on un­even ter­rain and fend off trail-side sticks and de­bris.
