Cyber Monday deals may be coming up hot, but that doesn't mean extended Black Friday deals aren't still powering through! And that includes some massive markdowns on Hokas — y'know, the shoes so popular they’re rarely, if ever, discounted. If you’re a human with foot pain (or just someone who values foot comfort) you’ve probably heard from a doctor, friend or wellness influencer about the miracle of Hokas, which are known as incredibly comfortable, supportive sneakers that make walking fun again. For the Hoka extended Black Friday sale, tons of the brand's biggest-selling styles are on deep discount now, whether you're shopping at Hoka itself or at retailers like REI.
We collected the seven best extended deals on Hoka running shoes available for Black Friday weekend 2023, so you can pick up a pair (or two) for yourself and get ready to hit the ground running (or walking) in comfort and style as we move into 2024.
Whether you're a casual jogger or a seasoned marathoner, the Rincon 3 running shoes from Hoka will have your back — or, rather, your feet. They're light, airy, and durable, perfect for wherever your adventures take you. "These are my work shoes for the hospital. I stand and walk a lot and was looking for lots of cushion," noted a reviewer. "There is a bigger heel to toe drop than I'm used to, but they're super comfy and the colors are beautiful. They flex nicely and the low profile tongue is amazing."
We love the Clifton 8's for their soft, lightweight support for both running and walking — and the America Podiatric Medical Association agrees, having bestowed upon them the organization's Seal of Acceptance. Fans adore them too: "I wear [these] everyday in the winter," shared one shopper. "They are essential to my comfort!" Available in 9 color combos.
Hoka calls these a "futuristic riff on the classic Clifton," and we definitely get the vibes — these all-gender sneaks feature the classic cushy bottom of the Clifton 8 with an ultramodern design and an Aquaguard zip instead of laces. One spec-savvy shopper wrote that "cushioning and stability is superb. I raced a technical 25k almost out of the box and flew over rocks, roots and gravel. They're smoother/quieter on road sections than previous versions too ... It's a beautiful update and really a Goldilocks shoe that will do everything but sloppy mud." And who wants to get into mud, anyway?
Race to grab these runners at $80 off — you'll be so glad you did. With premium performance knit and Meta-Rocker soles, they're designed for endurance and speed. An active 82-year-old reviewer said that "From the first 'step' I have been as light as feathered wings. I walk 3 miles a day with my 2 dogs and had a more conservative pair of Hokas for 3 years. They were such a great purchase in every way and nearly indestructible! I feel these new carbon 3X are the 'zenith'. My legs don't tire and there is never a tight or uncomfortable moment."
With all the cushion and none of the pushin' (sorry), these APMA Seal of Acceptance steppers are engineered to "turbo-charge your stride." It's hard to overstate the comfort of these shoes. Said one wearer, "My feet feel comfortable & supported — my back & hips are not killing me after a shift like they had with some brands." Available in regular and wide widths.
If you like to run on trails, the Stinsons offer great traction and durability. Shoppers also rave about the fit and comfort. "This shoe is firm at first but my last pair took a little bit to break in as well," reasoned a REI reviewer, adding, "...I would not be able to do the running I do on trail and road without these supportive and comfortable shoes. I love my Hoka Stinsons!"
If you love to hike in any sort of weather, you need a pair of these. They're waterproof yet lightweight, providing excellent traction on slippery surfaces. GORE-TEX uppers seal out wet weather. "These run 1/2 size bigger, which matched all of the Hoka shoes I’ve ever purchased," advised a happy hiker. "I love these shoes and they feel great. They run hot inside the boot but I think that is due to the waterproof exterior. Great boot! Glad I was able to snag a pair!"

A deaf dog who "hasn't seen much of the outside world" has been learning to understand sign language as he awaits a forever family to take him home. Gromit has been in the care of the Scottish SPCA for 142 days. The animal welfare charity said there's been "very little interest" in the young bulldog cross so is appealing for a loving owner to help Gromit "navigate his way through life".
A British couple who fell in love with two stray dogs in Bali are now trying to bring them home - but need £5k. James Mangan, 25, and girlfriend Chloe McPartland, 20, took the dogs in after finding them on the street. They've since grown to love the cute pooches - and want to take them back to Liverpool. But there's costs involved - so the pair are now trying to raise the appropriate funds. James and Chloe claim the puppies were neglected and malnourished, and would live a better life in Britain. And there's also the possibility the animals, known as 'Bali Dogs', may be used as food. Although the sale of dog meat is technically banned, the trade persists. James, who works in accountancy, said: "We've unintentionally got attached to the dogs and we won’t just leave them. "There's no hope for them here - they wouldn’t survive on the streets, and all the rescues are full. "When we can get them back to the UK we'll take them to the countryside on long walks - they'll have the best life. "We never planned this but it just happened and now we can't leave them." Chloe added: "We didn't have much choice, we could take them with us or go back on the street and we just couldn't do that." James and Chloe first met the pups, who they affectionately named who they named Nasi Goreng and Mie Goreng, after Indonesia's popular dishes, in August. They were stood on the street outside the accommodation where the couple have now been staying for the past three months, and James and Chloe would stroke the dogs every time they saw them. The dogs would allow the couple to touch them and would playfully chase their scooter. They even learnt the vehicle's specific motor sound so the pups would wait outside the accommodation when they could hear James and Chloe driving nearby. The couple began feeding the dogs and eventually brought them into their home, and quickly fell in love with them. James said: "It's overrun with dogs here and people don't have the same attitude to them as they do in the UK. "We witnessed people abuse them and kick them, and the dog meat trade is still a thing in Bali so it's very dangerous for them." The couple tried to find someone in Bali to adopt them - but with so many dogs around already, nobody wanted them. They decided "there's no way we can just leave them" and looked into bringing them back to the UK with them to become their pets back in Liverpool. They realised it would cost more than £6,000 to do that - and started a fundraiser after realising they couldn't generate that much alone. They're asking for £5,000 to be raised in donations and have agreed to pay anything over and above that themselves. James said: "We've been so stressed out about all this - that number doesn't cover our costs, but we wouldn't ask people to pay for those. "I don’t think there’s a scenario where we’d have to leave Nasi Goreng and Mie Goreng here - we’ll exhaust every possibility. "In Bali there's no parks and the conditions are bad for dogs. "We want to bring them home and take them to the countryside, on long walks all the time. "They have so much energy, they'd love it. "Chloe keeps showing me these TikToks of toys they would love - they don't have many dog toys here. "They're the happiest pups in the world - we want to give them their dream life."
