Since moving out to California, I’ve gotten more into trail running, which is why I went with the Hoka Torrent 2. It isn’t because suddenly I love trails but because the trails are close by and I can run trails whenever I want. In New Jersey, I had to drive anywhere between 1-2 hours to get a long run on trails. Now I can drive 10 minutes or even run from my house.
With that, I needed a trail shoe. I’ve heard the Hoka Torrent 2 is a good option, so I decided to try that out. It’s a lot more firm than many trails shoes. Many people have suggested the best use of the Hoka Torrent 2 is for racing.
