Yes, people use this shoe: http://blogs.militarytimes.com/pt365/2013/06/11/review-hoka-one-ones-stinson-trail-shoes-look-like-clown-shoes-but-laugh-at-punishing-terrain/ Sara Davidson ran the Laurel Highlands 70-miler in them. In total, she has run about 400 miles in them and they're starting to need replacement. So, they didn't make it to the 800 miles ...

It could be a combination of both. In order to be 100% sure I would need to see how you do it. In any case, if it's unsupportable pain I'm guessing there's something wrong. If you are ALWAYS sore after doing that exercise (even after a few weeks of doing them), you might be compensating. Concentrate on the glute contraction and everything should fall into ...

The number one workout you should absolutely be doing is the squat. It is bar-none the best functional exercise you can do, and it will work out your entire leg. A second workout to consider is the deadlift which is a good supplementary exercise alongside the squat.

Hinge at the Hip is a queue to use your actual hip flexors to lift the leg in the socket rather than tilting the pelvis. Go stand in front of a mirror and pick up one leg. See your pelvis shift and you drop on the other side to make room? Now hold on to something with your hands, squeeze your low abs (but not your glutes) and lift the leg again, ...

I would recommend a couple of different courses, actually. Go to a doctor and have it checked out. There are two different types of snapping hip syndromes, and each have different causes and recommendations. You could be trying the cure for one, when it is the other one that is causing it. Check your shoes and have a gait analysis done. I had snapping ...
