Built like no other trail shoe, the SPEEDGOAT is an expression of total technical domination. The form-fitting hydrophobic mesh upper hugs your foot, becoming intimate with its exact shape as you work together, seamlessly, with one of the best executed midsole-outsole arrays ever made available to endurance athletes looking for the perfect blend of dependable protection and dynamic performance. HOKAs injected EVA feels plush enough for long days on the trail but responsive enough for anything from obstacle racing to half-marathons. The 4mm lugs on the sticky VIBRAM MEGAGRIP outsole feel irresistible, carrying you quickly up soft clay banks and with precision across wet, angled rock faces. Fast, cushioned, grippy, and light, the shoe that carries Karl Meltzers nickname in honour of his 50km SKYRUN couldnt have been better engineered. This shoe is a weapon. It certainly isnt built for everyone, but if you like it better the gnarlier things get, then its definitely built for you.
