When HOKA released the Speedgoat 2, it came with a wider base for increased stability and roomier toe box for a more comfortable fit. Those things remain the same in the Speedgoat 3.
The third version of HOKA’s popular trail running shoe keeps the stable foundation and wide toe box, but it gets a trio of other fit upgrades that make the shoe even better:
- Additional heel support holds your foot into place
- Improved midfoot lockdown in the upper secures you in the shoe’s sweet spot
- Seatbelt-like supports create a protective cradle
One Fleet Feet tester put the Speedgoat 3 through the paces on wet roads and muddy trails. She said the shoe has, “Nice padding in the heel collar without being excessive, and the heel counter hugs my foot in a secure and comfortable way.”
HOKA also threaded thicker, textured laces through the Speedgoat 3 to help dial in the fit and stay cinched down.Shop Women's HOKA Speedgoat 3
