Additionally, the molded EVA sockliner allows runners and walkers to use the Challenger ATR 7 for long durations right out of the box without having to break the shoe in.
· Compressed Molded EVA Midsole Hoka retained the CMEVA midsole used in previous Hoka Challenger ATR models. The midsole allows Hoka to add 2mm of additional cushion without adding weight while providing the high cushion Challenger users have loved for years.
