The Speedgoat 4 takes its name from Hoka athlete Karl "Speedgoat" Meltzer and is part of Hoka's award-winning technical terrain family. In its fourth edition, it presents itself with mesh that is as breathable as it is durable. 3D printed overlays provide more midfoot support and overall stability. The toe section in particular is cut wider in this version so that you can run more comfortably. The Speedgoat 4 is a badass for every trail: it offers plenty of grip on the ground uphill and a secure hold in the shoe downhill.
New mesh upper construction for more breathability
3D-printed overlays for more support and a secure, firm hold in the metatarsus
Flap with strategic cutouts for increased breathability
Small "wings" on the eyelet trim for a better hold
Midsole with new lightweight foam for a more responsive ride
Wider forefoot area for a more stable walking experience and a comfortable fit
Rubberised Vibram Mega-Grip outsole for grip on wet and dry surfaces
The neutral shoe or cushioning shoe is equipped without pronation support (the lateral support of the foot). It is therefore particularly suitable for runners who have a regular rolling behaviour, i.e. who do not bend inwards or outwards when running. The neutral shoe can be used in competitions, fast training or long endurance sessions. The cushioning can vary depending on the intended use. In order to achieve a more direct ground contact in competition, it is advisable to use a slightly damped shoe. In training on hard surfaces or with long units, more cushioned shoes offer better comfort and protect the joints.
Great shoe, I'm amazed how well it works, never had problems with ankle pain with the shoe on long downhill runs. There is nothing else to complain about either. Highly recommended
Super Schuh, bin erstaunt wie gut er funktioniert, hatte frueher bei laengeren Bergabstrecken immer Probleme mit Fussgelenkschmerzen mit dem Schuh nicht. Auch sonst gibts nichts zu meckern. Sehr empfehlenswert
