As I've mentioned before, Sport Pursuit have been doing Hokas for a while. You have to sign up to view their site, but well worth it.

Few screen grabs of Hokas below to save signing up.

These guys are a outdoors/adventure clearance site & best online shopping experience I've had. Sizing can be a little limited, but if they've got what you're after, pricing is great compared with any items I've cross referenced. They kinda take pre-orders, so it can be a few weeks before order is dispatched & another couple of weeks shipping. On the plus side of the dispatch wait, you can add to an existing/open order & they'll reimburse your 2nd ,3rd etc. shipping fee(s). Also, returns are local to NSW & if you buy with PayPal, you get reimbursed any return postage costs, so really is no risk shopping. Customer service is great with fast & helpful replies.

I signed up to the above web site. They have the red Garmin 920XT with HRM for $375 which seems cheap.

They aren't easy to get in the U.K. And I had to make a special trip to a running shop in Somt to have a look. Had some analysis done and was told that I really run on my toes to quite a nasty degree, which was news to me because I death shuffle these days.

Anyway, tried a few and came away with a pair of Cliftons ( not sure which version) and the wide Aharis. Kind of went with what was available as shop said they will get no more stock this year.

i rotate them and apart from the Clifton being a bit tighter in the upper, they feel similar to me. The Ahari feels lighter and more airy but in terms of cushioning I seem to get on ok with either but would probably use the Ahari for longer distance stuff. I find them easier to run a bit more relaxed than I usually do but that's probably more about my bad style than the shoe.

the clown shoe look took some getting over but I don't notice that now.

Back in the lunar tempos and mental or not I feel faster after a few sessions.
