    The Rincons are the first shoes that I have bought on repeat since the early pre Fresh Foam NB 1080s.
    They are a good fit for my narrow high arched feet in my usual EU43, and the heel counter doesn't bother my heels.
    I use them on a variety of surfaces, for everything from intervals to long runs, paces 4-6mins/km.
    The harder rubber on the sole gives good grip on wet grass, but on stony paths you can feel the odd stone push up through the thinner foam under the heel.
    I have worn them for my last two marathons, whereas the half distance was as far as I felt comfortable taking the old Bostons or Kinvara 10.
    For me they last about 650km, which isn't too bad considering that they are usually discounted.

    I got this shoe to see if it would help ease my running on steep downhills in San Francisco. It beat my expectations, and I didn’t realize how much nicer running down steep roads could be until I tried these (Hokas). As for why I chose Rincons, I wanted a shoe that could be used for workouts (tempos, track intervals, long progression runs) as well as recovery runs, and these were great. Some people say I’m silly for running down to mile pace workouts in these, but hey, they feel good and I don’t get injured. The color schemes are versatile too, so you can find a pair that fits your personality.

    I like the Hoka Rincon for everyday training but the durability is not great ~ 300 miles

    The rincon 3 is my go to daily trainer . It’s lightweight and durable . Only complaint is it does seem to loose cushioning faster than I’d like. The rest of the shoe holds up great and still looks good after the cushion is long gone . I usually run in them around 400 plus miles but the cushion is gone well before then.

    In my running rotation with Saucony Endorphin Shift 2. I like the contrast in cushioning between the two.

    It's an allrounder. I do easy runs and long runs, and I can do some tempo if necessary. That pair of shoes I take on a holidays if I can only pack one pair.

    Super light and soft trainers. Hold up under high volume miles. Road running shoes, but not terrible on trails.

    I used to run in the Nike Pegasus. That shoe sold more than all the other Nike running shoes combined. So what did Nike do? They changed it!  Now, it suuuucks. I like Hoka Clifton and lately the Rincon 3. They are nice lightweight trainers. Too many running shoes are "too much shoe"  These are not.  Let's face it, all running shoes today are expensive. These are not cheap, but man they are comfortable.
