Is there a pair of Hokas that are good for running but don’t look like massive cinder blocks on your feet?

Look at Altra - similar level of cushioning but not quite as hideous. [I also find them wider in the toe box]

Also the Hoka Clifton isn’t quite as hideous.

I have the Arahi and find them very supportive without being a “cinder block.” I also love my On Cloud Stratus and Flyer shoes. They’re amazing if you need a stability shoe for long runs!

Mach 4! I got them and I am obsessed

oh gawd - they might be the ugliest ones yet

I’m surprised to hear someone bummed about the way hokas look. I’m a brooks adrenaline guy myself and my main complaint is that they look boring AF

Love my hokas - I’ve decided to just embrace the clown show look.

Had a very unpleasant experience with the entire interview process at Paytm. First of all they kept all three rounds in a single day . It started from the morning and ended up till the final round at late evenings. After all the rounds were cleared, the HR asked for the expected package, and when I gave him my quote which was just 35% more than my current CTC, he got reluctant and said we only have a budget of an X amount which was just 10% more than my current CTC. Who on earth does that..?

I thought I was being smart by taking a part time weekend role at an Amazon fulfillment center so I can have a better chance of landing an interview for a program manager role as well as the ability to apply to internal positions. Turns out I blacklisted myself from high paying jobs at amazon. But it’s fine, I got to experience how they treat their lowest level employees and all of their operational gaps and opportunities. Not a company I’d want to work for anymore.

Gym etiquette question - I was in the weight room of my gym and a girl was on a machine for at least 15 min, most if which time she was just sitting on her phone. I did the rest of my workout and politely asked if she was still using it because I could see that she was just sitting. She said no so I said no worries, I’ll wait until she was done. Stood a few feet away and was scrolling on my phone. She started yelling at me that I was hovering and needed me leave. Was I somehow in the wrong?
