Alternative to Hoka Mach 4 (Read 16 times)


Misinformation Officer

    I love the way the Mach series shoes feel, but I run the soles off before 200 miles (4 different pairs). Is there another shoe with a similar feel that might be more durable on asphalt?



    • 30mpw
    • 133-137 pounds
    • 100% asphalt terrain, occasional gravel on the road
    • hot, humid climate
    • rotate 3 pairs of shoes at all times
    • run same 4 routes
    • wear underneath description:  they are "slicks" by 175 miles but still feel good; issue is they're slippery on damp asphalt 
    • My closest running store is 90 minutes away, so it's an event to go try shoes on.

    Runs like a dj mixing songs while wearing festive outfits.
