83 / 100 based on 6 expert reviews

  • 82 / 100 by Lenny Sunday • Lenny • Level 3 expert

    For running, it's a very comfortable shoe. But it's a very stiff and rigid shoe. That helps your stride if you're a flat footed person, and then it has that huge medial post.

  • 82 / 100 by Road Trail Run • Sam Winebaum • Level 5 expert

    Unlike the SpeedGoat, or for that matter the Clifton, the Infinite midsole is firmer but in no way harsh at all.

  • 80 / 100 by Klein Runs • Matt Klein • Level 4 expert

    The firmness contributes to a more responsive Hoka shoe than I have experienced in the past and the late stage metarocker makes this shoe feel lighter than it is.

  • 86 / 100 by Finish Line Fever • Ferdinand Batatan • Level 3 expert

    The shoe is somewhat like a two edge sword that it lets me feel that I’m connected to the ground but still gave that plush ride which I really enjoyed.

  • 87 / 100 by Ann Arbor Running Co. • Ann Arbor Running Co. • Level 1 expert

    Built on a wider platform and featuring late stage Meta- Rocker geometry, the Infinite offers a great balance of cushioning, stability and durability.

  • 83 / 100 by Fleet Feet Sports • Jeff Keezer • Level 1 expert

    They are a wonderful balance between the ultra soft cushioning of the Stinson and the firmness of the Conquest.
