The Hoka One One Tracer 2 is a relatively new shoe from the Hoka brand. An update to the original Tracer, this second version is still a great alternative to other thickly cushioned Hoka shoes. The sleek looking shoe is a lightweight workhorse. Made for the road, it's both responsive and well-cushioned, without the chunky feel of some other Hoka shoes. A few updates have greatly improved this iteration. Minute updates like a new heel tab help to round out an already smart design while comprehensive changes like that of the new upper address complaints about the previous version. All in all, the Tracer 2 is an improved shoe with a lot of merits.
The heel area also features a new heel tab so wearers can easily remove or slip on the shoe. The new upper material hasn't just helped to create a better fitting shoe. It has also reduced the overall weight of the Tracer 2. Reviewers were impressed by the improved fit but did comment on the fact that sizing seemed to be a bit different. Despite this small annoyance, users felt the fit was snug without feeling too tight, and the shoe felt like it was part of the foot.
