Speedgoat by Hoka One One
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Resilient Runner from Texas Hill Country on Sunday, January 8, 2017
I am 210 lb., retired Army Staff Sergeant. Trail running is my therapy and I could not do it without the Hoka ultra padded design. I have tried a variety of other shoe brands and Hoka brands, including the Mufate and the ATR. The Speedgoat is by far the best. It is built well and allows me to get out on the trails, do some medium paced running and not aggravate my injuries. I love a Hoka but they are not made for Texas' Hill Country trails. So they have a tendency to wear down faster, and if there is too much mesh in the toe area they tear easily on a misstep. Having said that I love the support and max cushioning it provides on the down hill, especially because I am like a buffalo pounding the trails. Using Sierra Trading Post is about the best way to get an affordable price on a shoe that performs well and holds up to the test. The Speedgoat has held up the best overall so far.
