If Hoka is known for one thing, it’s cushioning. The running shoe brand has made waves for bucking the minimalist running trend of the early 2010s with its almost cartoonishly thick midsoles. But Hoka’s collection isn’t just limited to roads—the brand puts out serious heat in the trail runner and hiking shoe categories as well, and recently, one of its most cushioned models got a massive discount.

The Hoka Stinson All Terrain 6 Running Shoe is now on sale for just $90—a 47% discount on the normal $170 price. These bouncy trail runners have earned over 250 five-star ratings from shoppers who have said they “fit like a glove,” making them a top-5 bestselling men’s shoe style at Nordstrom Rack. These shoes are currently available in sizes 9 through 15 in a vibrant blue colorway.

Hoka’s Stinson provides reliable performance both on-road and off—the thick tread is grippy on uneven terrain, but it can hold its own on the road, too. It’s considered the trail-running equivalent of Hoka’s Bondi sneaker, so fans of that style will likely find a lot to love here. They offer ample cushioning and stability for runners looking for a little more support, and the wider base keeps feet feeling secure. Despite the ample cushioning, the shoes have a minimal 5mm heel-to-toe drop for a smooth ride, particularly for midfoot strikers. They’ve been built with a breathable mesh upper and feature TPU paneling for extra protection.

Shoppers were impressed with the comfort and performance of these shoes, with one calling them “comfortable on all terrain,” adding that they’re “stylish and durable.” Another wrote that the shoes are “comfortable while providing excellent traction,” finding them a suitable option while they were “struggling with bad plantar fasciitis.”

Others were impressed with the shoes’ performance on tricky terrain, with one calling them “soft and bouncy with great deep tread,” appreciating their performance on “steep gravelly trails.” Another shopper noted that “the tread doesn’t look aggressive, but I haven’t had any problems with grip on dry ground, muddy ground, gravel, or steeper grades.”

If you’re looking for a versatile trail runner for tackling varied terrain, Hoka’s Stinson All Terrain 6 Running Shoe is a capable option with ample cushioning and support. If we’ve learned anything about Hoka sales, it’s that sizes go very quickly, so make sure to pick yours up while it’s still available.
