Lightweight Ferocity: Hoka One One’s Torrent 2
, tester since 2017Arch: Medium | Gait: Neutral | Footstrike: Midfoot“I enjoyed running in the Torrent 2 much better than the first pair of Torrents that I had tested in the past. I felt like the newer model was lighter and less clunky. I liked how supportive the shoe was and that even though it had a narrow toe box it was still very roomy and comfortable
