Named for Karl Meltzer aka “The Speedgoat”, who holds the record for the most 100-mile trail race wins and epitomizes the “go everywhere, run everything” attitude, this shoe is designed to attack all kinds of technical trail.
The fourth edition features a new breathable yet rugged mesh.
We included 3D printed overlays for increased midfoot support and an overall more secure feel.
Most importantly, we added a more accommodating fit in the toe box for a more comfortable ride. Grippy on the uphill and secure on the downhill, the Speedgoat 4 is badass on every trail.
Am relatively new to trail running so don’t have much knowledge when it comes to trail shoes but I do know that they are one of the most comfortable running shoes I’ve ever worn. Absolutely love my new Speedgoats, excellent grip on all terrains, plenty of cushion and support. Will definitely be ordering another pair.
Cushioned, grippy, durable. I like that these are pure trail shoes - the sole outlasts the other trail shoes in the Hoka range. Women’s B Width feels more generous than standard; I didn’t need to go to D width to fit my orthotics. Tongue is sparse, ie not cushioned at all. But this is remedied by wearing slightly higher cut socks. Very impressed. I’ve already ordered a second pair. That’s me sold!
