First off his 2:16 high is a great time, we have no clue if he has even reached his potential. Even if he has that is a time to be proud off Tyler. He never braged he simply listed his time to show you that good runners can train and run fast in Hokas. Hoka is doing great things, they are growing slowly. I don't expect the pros they sponsor to race in the shoes just yet. The company is working on that. Hoka is moving in the right direction, I loved mine for the short time I ran in them. I had a nagging injury that finally caught up with me. I was desperate to get back quickly. I tried Altra shoes and found they allowed me to get back to running pain free quickly. I am a big believer in the over cushioned shoes, have been a positive change for me. Still run in my Hokas from time to time b/c I have them. Great shoe and def not a fad as one person stated. Fads are very popular for a short time then disappear. Over cushion shoes are here to stay companies like Hoka and Altra are a refreshing change to the shoe industry. Im not sure how many people it will take saying they love Hokas for others to realize that they're not a gimmick. I bet they change the spike game when they eventually make an over cushioned lightweight spike. Ill take a few more ounces for a spike that doesn't ruin my feet after a race.
