    For anyone thinking about walking their Camino in trail running shoes, let me point you in the direction of the April issue of Runner's World magazine. Nine different shoes are reviewed including models from Brooks, Salomon, Saucony, and Hoka. Flexibility, cushioning, weight, and overall performance is evaluated for each shoe. The two shoes that stood out as the Editor's Choice were the Hoka One One Challenger ATR 3 and the Saucony Peregrine 7. This may be a starting point for someone looking for this type of shoe. Buen Camino!

    I received my Hoka one one summit - hiking shoe and they are wonderful . Only averaging 9 miles a day but so far no problems. Think they will do great for Camino in August.

    Hokas seem to have a nice wide toe box, think I'll have to try them out.

    I have a horrible bunion on my left foot and today I did 12 miles and no issues . They are wide but that's good for me. I double my socks too.

    I have a pair of Hoka Stinson ATR4 trail running shoes and love them for the maximum cushioning. However, I would be concerned about the lack of a strong mid foot shank and toe cap commonly found in hiking boots. Hoka does make a series of hiking boots with better support but not quite as much cushioning. But, to each his or her own.

    I'm using the Brooks trail runners for my upcoming camino as it has a measure of waterproofing. Since I'm leaving in three weeks I'm sure I'll find out real quick how well the waterproofing works LOL.
