Fit & Feel:
Your toes should not be touching the front of the shoe. Your heel should not lift out when you walk.
The insole is removable and offers some support, but the real arch support comes from the construction of the shoe.
This style features Hoka's J-Frame technology, designed to prevent excessive pronation without overcorrecting gait.
You will feel very secure in Arahi 5. The outsole is wide and stable.
Although the Arahi 5 has less cushioning than Gaviota 3 or Bondi 7, the cushioning is still pillowy and soft and forgiving on your ankles and knees.
The toe box is roomy! It is both wide and high for total toe comfort.
