TACKLE ANY TRAIL WITH SPEED
Inspired by Karl Meltzer and the rugged conditions of the Speedgoat 50k, the Speedgoat is completely redesigned to take on technical trails. Built on a slightly softer EVA midsole, and with 4mm Vibram rubber lugs, the Speedgoat is built to tackle technical terrain with ease. The upper provides support all the way through the forefoot, and the ground-rubber toecap provides increased protection. When you need a tough shoe to get you through tough trail conditions, look no further than the Speedgoat.
Lightweight Comfort and Superior Protection
For 2016, the Speedgoat receives an updated upper with a focus on lightweight comfort. Rocking an air Mesh upper construction which is lightweight and allows air to fully permeate the shoe, promoting a cooler, drier and altogether more pleasant environment.
Meanwhile Hoka promote the Structural No Sew SpeedFrame Overlays which provide necessary stabilisation around the midfoot from medial to lateral. A seamless interior environment to the Speedgoat reduces irritation and blistering, as well as the number of potential weak points throughout the shoe that would otherwise be prone to tearing or breakage. A softer, lightly padded tongue merged onto the upper provides increased protection and comfort across the foot.
Key underfoot Cushioning and Responsivness
The Speedgoat utilises a full-length IMEVA midsole, providing industry-leading cushioning for increased impact protection and stability, with unified performance within The Meta-Rocker midsole geometry. Specifically engineered with a low heel-toe differential and a sculpted outsole radius, the Speedgoat encourages a unique natural rolling motion for the wearer. This supports natural form and encourages an efficient, continuous positive rolling motion from heel-strike to toe-off.
Hoka shoes offer a unique rolling motion for the most natural, efficient and effortless stride. To achieve these results this has an extended profile; a logarithmic shape for a smooth progressive rolling motion. There is unsurpassed shock attenuation, a sense of weightlessness and an inherently stable ride which is designed to reduce the fatigue in your feet, legs and core.
Optimal grip and Multi-directional control
The outsole of the Speedgoat is integrated with H-Shape dynamic stability technology, promoting a wide midfoot platform for maximum underfoot stability with Full Ground Contact that enables increased traction and a smooth heel to toe transition. Hoka give's the outsole to the Speedgoat, Vibram, a household name for trail shoes. Built to be durable, resistant, safe and functional - offering superior traction to the sole the Speedgoat's 4mm Vibram mega grip provides the ultimate in trail running grip.
Hoka One One is the brainchild of two gravity sports enthusiasts Jean-Luc Diard and Nicolas Mermoud. Both men have been adventuring for as long as they can remember, and their trail running experiences have taken them across the globe.
Both Jean-Luc and Nicolas are committed to the values of freedom and enjoyment and feel that this is part of to the running experience whether running on the trail or in the city. With this in mind they started to look at the variables that affected the performance of different types of runners.
They quickly came to an important conclusion; fatigue, impacts and muscle strains were challenges that runners of all stripes had to deal with every day. So Jean-Luc and Nicolas came up with a brilliant idea, why not design a shoe that would help to alleviate these problems - so that freedom and enjoyment could be guaranteed every time you go running!
From that idea Hoka One One was born. The word Hoka is derived from the ancient Maori language and roughly translated to "now it is time to fly". That's just how it feels to run in a pair of Hoka One One shoes; with each and every step, your foot flies.
Today's runners from around the world are learning about the benefits of Hoka One One, they have been used by marathon winners. 50 miles, 100 miles and even 2000+ miles ultra-runners as well as runners just like you or I, who want to enjoy running, perform at their peak and feel that important sense of freedom whilst maintaining top physical performance and protecting against shocks, jolts and injuries.
So put your best foot forward, it's time to fly!Manufacturer product code - HOK1008852AAAC
