These are great shoes, but you need to know what you're getting into. I've run in virtually all the Hoka line, and these are one of my favorite shoes for running ultras. I have reservations about the "squishiness" of the Bondis, and I don't like the stiffness and weight of shoes like the Mafate and Stinson. These hit the sweet spot in most respects. That said, there are problems. First, as most reviewers have noted, they run narrower in the toe box than most Hokas. This is great news if you have narrower feet, but I don't. I don't have really wide feet, but they are a bit wider than normal. If you are like me, you can still use these shoes, but you will probably have to make some modifications. First, get rid of the speed laces, which are a complete waste of time. Second, you probably want to go with a thinner sock than normal just to provide a bit more wiggle room in the toe box. I use the Injinji performance lightweight sock, and they seem to work well. Third, there are two elastic bands that cross the tongue: a narrow one toward the toe and a wider one at the midfoot. When I first ran in these shoes, I got blisters on the top of my little toes from one of the seams on the tongue (lots of other reviewers have had this problem as well). What I did was cut the narrow elastic band toward the toes, and that seems to have alleviated most of the problem. If you have blistering problems on the top of your toes, you might want to try this modification.

I've been running in the Rapa Nui 2 for close to 3 months now, and have over a hundred miles on them. I like to rotate shoes between the Altra Lone Peaks zero drop shoes and these. I have to say that I look forward to the days that I get to wear the Rapa Nui's, because they're a dream to run in. I run 40-50 miles/week and usually have a 20+ mile run on the weekend, these are the shoes I find that I'm wearing on all the longer runs. I also have the more padded (if you can believe there's a shoe with even more cushion then these?) Mafate 3 Hoka, and these Rapa Nui shoes just feel "faster, leaner, and more right" then it's cushioned big brother. I did change out the speed lacing to regular laces (I've never understood speed lacing on a shoe that most runners aren't in a hurry to change or put on?). The only negative I have in this shoe is I run steep, technical trails and the lugs on the outsole could be larger for better traction.

I'd also recommend: Altra Olympus

Great trail shoe. It does run a half size large. I have been enjoying running the trails in the UP. Very comfortable. As always what great service from Zappos. They have to be the best customer service company in the US.

I really like these shoes. I tried the Hoka Mafate and Stinson in the past, but returned them after a run or two - they were too much shoe and hard to climb in. But, the Rapa Nui provides an incredible amount of stability and cushioning for long distance, while also offering the feel of a "regular running shoe" (especially running uphill). I did find a key to buying these shoes was getting a half-size larger. They are narrow, and do have a small toe box, but a half-size up did the trick for me (in terms of a comfortable fit).

Very comfy shoes. I used these last year at my job which requires lots of time moving on asphalt and concrete. Having broken hip and pelvis over the years and an artificial knee I find the padding and support in these shoes to be unsurpassed. No question though...either my feet got a full size bigger from last year, which I doubt, or they are running small in this model this year. Order at least a half size larger
