After a long run or hike, you're aching to get out of your shoes, no matter how well they served you. Your feet need a break, but perhaps you're not able to lounge on the couch yet. The Ora recovery shoe from Hoka One One is what you need. These shoes have only one concern – comfort. The idea behind these breathable, super-cushioned slip-ons is to make your feet happy after a long workout. They are collapsible, making them easy to stash in a backpack or airline carry-on, although, honestly, you'd probably want to wear them on the plane after a big race. While comfort is king, you still get some stability and support, making them more like traditional running shoes than say, slippers. If you've never tried Hoka One One's thick EVA cushioning, you're in for a treat. But while these shoes are made with high-tech materials, they aren't for putting in any miles. The workout is over. The trail is hiked. The finish line is crossed. Now slip these shoes on, grab your beer, and revel in your adventures. You've earned it.
