3. For All-Day Comfort: Hoka Challenger ATR 6Get It
Choosing a shoe based strictly on comfort is never a bad plan—these Hokas reinforce that. Beefed up where they need to be and stripped down where they don’t, you won’t mind having these runners on your feet all day. While Hokas are known for an ultra-plush ride, the Challenger ATR 6 has very approachable, surprisingly responsive cushioning for the uninitiated. Rather than a complete rubber outsole, the EVA midsole is exposed at the midfoot, making this shoe flexible and very composed on the pavement. The grippy forefoot and heel lugs, large footprint, and protective upper mean you’ll have no fear when the terrain gets technical. If you run long on different surfaces and want a plush sensation under your feet, these Hokas are the choice for you.
