Best Hoka One One shoes for Men with average builds

Born in the French mountains, the maximalist pioneer Hoka One One (meaning fly over the earth in Maori) has exploded in popularity in recent years. That's because the light, highly cushioned shoes are great for trail runners, ultra runners, or people simply looking for an easy, light ride. Today, Hoka One One is found in nearly every running store and is the most popular shoes at ultra marathons.

Having an average build has its advantages: you can fit in most clothes, fly most airplanes, and ride most roller coasters. Running shoes are no different. Some shoes are meant for lighter runners; some for heavier runners. Average build runners can fit in the large bell shape curve in between. But just like it's important to understand your build, it's also important to understand what shoe you need. That's why the following sneakers are meant for runners who are neither heavy nor skinny.
