You’re here wondering about Hokasshoes.site. Maybe you were ripped off, maybe you’re wondering about something on the site, or maybe you’re just a curious person. Whatever the case, you’re probably wondering whether Hokasshoes.site is legit or not. And we’re here to answer just that.
Is Hokasshoes a scam? We believe so, and we hope to answer that very question in the article below. By the end of the article, you’ll learn just what Hokasshoes.site is connected with. We’ll also look into several things that they claim, that may (or may not) be true.
So let’s go!
This is an automated report on Hokasshoes.site, so our apologies if it doesn’t come out exactly right or sounds a little too generic (or vague). If we get enough people interested, we will write a more detailed article about Hokasshoes!
- There is a website or two that looks like Hokasshoes.
- Hokasshoes has some shady discounts on their site, as well as not explaining why everything is so discounted.
- Hokasshoes is connected with an email address that has been linked with several other fraudulent scams.
- Hokasshoes is impersonating a legit brand name and pretending to be them.
Impersonation Of Hoka One One
One of the things that we find on the site is that Hokasshoes is pretending to be Hoka One One, a popular brand/company (depending on where you live).
If you take a look at the above screenshot, you can see clearly that they are trying to pretend that they are Hoka One One, since they show the logo and/or the name right on the top of their site.
If a site ever claims to be a certain brand, and they don’t have the same domain as the brand (especially popular, well-known brands), then it is more than likely a scam.
And Hokasshoes.site is no different.
Hokasshoes is using Hoka One One’s copyrighted images, as well as their logos to promote their scam. What their doing is illegal, immoral, and down right wrong.
But, being an impersonation website isn’t the only thing that shows them as being a scam.
Hokasshoes.site’s Shady Discounts
When going to Hokasshoes.site, the site seems like a normal one. On their site, they claim to be a store that offers discounts and lower prices. So much lower that they claim you can save 30%-70% of the retail cost, or so it seems.
However, when you take a close look at their discounts, and their products for that matter, you’ll notice a common theme. And that theme is that every single product they list appears to be running a discount:
We’ve seen this enough times to know that this is a scam. If a site has that many products on their store for those low of prices, then it truly is a scam. There really is no need to investigate further about it.
You don’t purchase lawn-mowers, computer desks, or even beach chair sets for that low of a price (or whatever they’re selling on their site).
This is just a common ploy by scammers to get traffic to their site. People see low prices, go to the scammer’s site, purchase something (because they think they are getting a good deal), and lose money over it.
Now, like we said, we could stop our review there, and say that the site is indeed a scam. But, just because we’re convinced that it’s a scam, doesn’t necessarily mean that you, the reader, are convinced. So, it’s on the next issue with the site.
Other Sites That Look Like Hokasshoes.site
We’ve looked into a number of scams over the past months. And something that we’ve found is that, for some strange reason, owners of sites will create multiple sites that look similar or exactly a like.
Most of these sites are scams. Or at least, every time we’ve seen a ‘look-a-like’ site, they’ve come out as being scams. But we guess someone could create two sites that look exactly the same, and have them be legit.
As you can see in the above screenshot, we have a site that looks very similar to Hokasshoes. And there could possibly be several of them out there as well. When we find one similar site, 2-3 usually aren’t that far behind.
Like we said, we’re not entirely sure why a website that is legitimate would do this. But it could be entirely possible.
Just means that this as itself may not conclusively prove that this site is a scam. But, on the flip side, it does discredit Hokasshoes’s authenticity because of it, and ranks them lower due to having a ‘double’.
The Fraudulent Email Address
We haven’t really give much conclusive proof that this site is a scam, have we?
Well, we won’t beat around the bush any longer. We do have some pretty concrete proof that this site, and the owner behind it, are fraudulent.
Because we continued to check all the information on the site, we looked into an email address that we saw come from their site. And we found something rather interesting:
As you can see above, they list their email address, probably to give as customer-service or something
.Nothing is strange about giving out your contact email. A lot of companies do it – how else are you going to let people know how they can contact you?
However, when we saw the email address, we recognized it immediately. We had actually seen it before, on numerous websites. Scam websites, we might add.
Above is a screenshot of many scams that the owner(s) of Hokasshoes have been a part of. And that is just part of it. That screenshot shows only part of the fraudulent websites they are part of.
So, all in all, Hokasshoes.site isn’t a site that we would recommend you use, or try to purchase something from. The owner of it is clearly a scam artist who knows what he’s doing.
We Don’t Recommend Hokasshoes.site!
So, to reiterate what we said above:
- Hokasshoes is running some sketchy discounts
- Hokasshoes appears to be trying to pretend that they are Hoka One One
- Hokasshoes.site’s website looks like another website
- Hokasshoes uses an email that also is behind other fraudulent websites
In the end, you will only lose money if you buy through Hokasshoes.site, since they don’t seem like the type who will actually send anything to you. They are a fraudulent company that shouldn’t be around and shouldn’t be promoted.

Hi add hokatrailhiking to your list
another fraud, deeply discounted site, but three pairs for $70!. too good to be true. How come no one can stop these sites?? has all the legitimate logos too, like verisign, paypal, all the supposed encripted and trusted sites listed ? who can you trust anymore??
I ordered women’s Hoka shoes from an online store, and money was taken from my account by the next day, It is a slightly different name than the one mentioned in the article. They of course never arrived. I got an update that they were shipped and could be tracked, not the case, none of the tracking buttons worked. Someone contacted me via email with a fake DHL tracking number and also a fraudulent USPS tracking number. When I returned to the original email with the order number, I replied to ask for a refund, and that I suspected they were a fraudulent business. My email bounced back, stating that there was no such internet address.
Add hoka-run.com with this email:
Offered 3 pr of Hoka shoes for $99 including shipping.
Then the amount was changed to $113 charge on Paypal so that alerted me that something was wrong.
Fortunately I paid with Paypal and canceled the order.
It was too good to be true.
Thanks for letting us know, Dorothy!
