The final quarter of 2016 proved to be another strong quarter for HOKA ONE ONE. The king of highly cushioned footwear continues to be a dominating force with several different models and colors showing up in our top 25 lists. The HOKA ONE ONE Bondi 4 was the big hit this quarter with 2 colors cracking the top 5 of both the men’s and women’s list. The fourth version of the Bondi continues to offer one of the highest stack heights in the industry along with an ultra soft underfoot feel. Other favorites such as the Clifton 3, Vanquish 2, and Challenger ATR 2 also made the list.
The tried and true daily trainers also made a big dent on the top selling shoes this quarter. The Brooks Adrenaline 16, ASICS Nimbus 18, and ASICS 2000 4 appeared on the list and continued to prove that they are reliable training option year in and year out.
On the trail side, the Challenger ATR 2 proved to be a strong option on both the men’s and women’s list. The Challenger ATR 2, otherwise known as the Clifton of the trails, continues to provide a versatile trail option that can also handle well on the roads. On the men’s side, trail shoes were slightly more prevalent with the Altra Superior 2.0 cracking the top 5 and the New Balance Mt10 v4 also making the top 25.
