Really, all they've done is change the upper. The midsole/outsole is basically the same. It's awesome, but it's the same.
They are amazing, the amount of cushion in the sole makes them perfect for long distance hiking.
That heel stack definitely made us lose some nimbleness on tight turns and rocky descents, though, and grip was only adequate and quick to clog up.
It's got some nice structure in the heel, nice support. They've got some nice padding around the heel, as well a nice padded tongue. Really like… the upper part of the shoe, but just found that it ran a little short and narrow for me…

Hoka One One Stinson 3 ATR size and fit
The sizing of the Hoka One One Stinson 3 ATR is of standard measurement. However, the overall fit of this version was improved as compared to its predecessor. The heel, midfoot and forefoot area of the shoe have standard measurements. This shoe is available in standard widths of D for the men’s and B for the women’s.
The sticky rubber compound together with the 3mm ATR Lugs increases the traction attributes of the shoe, keeping the runners upright even on wet surfaces. It is highly reliable and durable due to its high-abrasion resistant capacity. The durability also allows a problem-free everyday run.
The full ground contact construction of the Stinson ATR 3 provides a smoother heel-to-toe transition while giving increased traction on trickiest terrain.
Found in the outsole unit of the shoe are the Longitudinal Flex Grooves. The flex grooves are designed to allow the foot to move freely without causing any pain. It also gives added stability.
The full-length Compression-Molded EVA was placed in the midsole, giving an impressive cushioning. It gives added stability and increases impact protection which is also needed for long runs. For a similar running experience, users could also give the Salomon Sense Ride 2 a try.
The midsole of this shoe also uses the Active Foot Frame technology. It increases responsiveness and feedback by allowing the foot to sit into the midsole. It made the shoe highly adaptable to a wide range of running styles and foot shape.
The brand’s Late Stage Meta-Rocker Geometry technology was also found in this shoe. It was engineered to provide a more stable forefoot base and support.
The upper unit of the Stinson 3 ATR gives maximum breathability through its air mesh upper. The lightweight air mesh material allows optimal airflow, keeping the foot cool and dry.
The no-sew design Lycra ComfortFrame in the upper gives a sock-like and more secure fit. It was designed to enhance the fit in the heel and midfoot area, wrapping around the foot for a snug and comfortable fit. The no-sew construction reduces the possibilities of having irritation and blisters. It also gives added durability to the shoe’s upper.
