A versatile shoe that shines on trails but transitions easily onto roads, the Hoka One One Men’s Challenger ATR 4 running shoe offers soft cushioning without sacrificing responsiveness. Lightweight construction allows the shoe to weigh in at just 18 ounces per pair.
With midsole volume that far exceeds standard running shoes, Hoka One One shoes provide enhanced cushioning and shock absorption. While visually this may look bulky, the performance-enhancing cushioning is actually extremely lightweight. Additionally, a rockered geometry with a low heel-to-toe differential encourages an efficient, rolling stride.
The synthetic upper is supple and breathable. Strategic overlays bolster support and increase durability without adding bulk or excess weight. A low-profile toe cap reduces the impact of rocks and roots. The EVA midsole cushioning ensures a plush ride and reduces fatigue.
The rubber outsole utilizes 4mm lugs and a tread pattern that delivers reliable traction regardless of the surface. The broad-patterned design provides stability even on uneven terrain. With a 29mm heel and a 24mm forefoot, the shoe offers a minimal 5mm drop.
The Hoka One One Men’s Challenger ATR 4 is available in men’s full and half sizes.

Real Customer Reviews
- Great trail shoe with good traction and cushioning.
Likes: I like the cushioning and comfort. I also got the Hoka Speedgoat 2. The challenger has a wider toe box and a wider fit. I preffer the Speedgoat 2 for the narrow fit but that just depends on your feet. They are both great shoes and for me the width is the biggest difference. If you have wider feet and want to be good to your knees get this pair. For narrow feet, get the Speedgoat 2
Dislikes: The front part and the heel part of the sole has nice rubber on it but nothing in the middle. I have had sharp stone gotten embedded in the soft part of the sole. that's another area where the Speedgoat 2 is better. Still a very good shoe. The previous pair lasted me many hard wearing miles.
