Hoka Recovery Slides Review

As my mileage started increasing as well as the distance for my long runs for marathon training, I was starting to really feel fatigued. As an athletic trainer, I preach recovery because it gives me less to deal with in the long run with my athletes. I would much rather work on preventative matters than dealing with some serious injuries with my athletes. I almost think that working preventatively is almost more critical than carrying out rehab plans for a chronic injury. I knew at this tail end of training, it was very critical for me to continue preventative work/rehab on myself as well. Sometimes with life, it is hard enough to just get the training itself completed. I understand that. I am constantly rushing from a morning practice to the multiple practices we have throughout the day with my 82 athletes, plus include rehabs, take graduate classes, teach a class, and be a clinical preceptor. Training is hard. So sometimes you end up leaving rehab and strengthening on the back burner. This time around on marathon training I knew that I needed to do things correctly. I made time to stretch and strength train as well as recover after some harder runs with ice baths, recovery pumps, compression socks, and rolling. All things that are familiar to me. What I did not know about were recovery sliders.

Throughout this marathon journey I have been a huge fan of Hokaoneone running shoes, specifically the Clifton 3’s but I had no idea Hokaoneone also carried recovery slides! Like I said, as an athletic trainer, I am all for preventative work so recovery is of huge interest for me. So, after a 20 mile run, I eagerly wore the recovery slides the remainder of the day. Hokaoneone is known for the oversized midsole, the met rocker effect, and the bucket seat style for your foot to sit deep in the midsole rather than just on top of it. At first look, these shoes reminded me of a beautiful mermaid look.

One of the models for women are a sort of turquoise blue with a magenta fade on the sides. They don’t necessarily match with everything but that doesn’t matter when initially trying them on there is an immediate amount of relief on your feet. They were unlike any other slides I have worn before. From the balls of my feet to my heels the surfaces where the slides took the impact off my feet were amazing. I proceeded to walk in them the entire weekend running errands and even while traveling with my cross-country team to away meets. I firmly believe that it doesn’t necessarily have to be the Hokeoneone recovery slides to help you recover but they are a great option that truly made my feet feel significantly better after some long and hard training days. I believe as long as you are taking the precautions to avoid injuries in your endurance sport career then you are set. The Hokaoneone Slides just happened to be the best way I recovered.
