The all-terrain HOKA Challenger 7 gives you road performance with trail traction, so you can run wherever life takes you.

HOKA improved the Challenger by re-engineering the 4 mm lug pattern to provide a smoother road running experience while still giving you great grip for trail runs. The durabrasion rubber outsole extends the longevity of the shoe no matter what surface you run on. Designers also added more cushioning in the midsole to increase the stack height and allow you to run comfortably for longer.

A brand-new upper provides plenty of breathability as you put in the miles. New engineered mesh fits better around your feet and is made with recycled material. Testers noticed that this shoe was not as narrow as the previous version in our HOKA Challenger 7 review. Plus, there is an extended heel pull for easy entry if you are changing shoes during an ultra marathon, or trying to quickly put your shoes on as you dash out the door for your run.

Whether you are hitting the roads, trails or both, do it in comfort with the HOKA Challenger 7.

What’s New

HOKA made significant changes to the HOKA Challenger 7 to improve its road-running performance while still being able to handle the trails with ease. Designers updated the lug pattern for a smoother ride on pavement that also provides plenty of grip for the trails. The increased cushioning and stack height of the shoe give you extra comfort on long runs, hikes and long days on your feet.

The new upper incorporates more recycled content and makes the shoe more breathable. HOKA also removed the pull tab on the heel and extended the heel collar itself to make it easy to put on your foot. All of these updates led to an overall lighter shoe.

Who It’s Best For

The HOKA Challenger 7 is a great shoe for runners and walkers that want one shoe for both roads and trails. It is also a great shoe to wear in the winter because the lugs give more traction on snow-covered sidewalks or roads.

Why You’ll Love It

You will love the cushion and comfort of the HOKA Challenger 7. Plus, with more traction than a traditional road shoe, you won’t be limited to only roads or trails during your run.
