Read our review of the HOKA Mach 5


Get ready to perform—the HOKA Mach 5 offers a snappy and lively ride with its new PROFLY+ midsole that offers a lightweight and responsive feel directly underfoot and rubberized EVA below for traction. The PROFLY+ foam provides for a softer and bouncier ride than ever before.

The upper is a stripped-down, breathable single-layer creel jacquard engineered mesh that gives you a great lockdown around the midfoot and extra room in the forefoot. The flared heel holds the foot in while you pound the pavement. Plus, the gusseted tongue lays flat and is minimal with strategic cushioned pads.

Combining the best parts of the Mach Supersonic and Mach 4, the HOKA Mach 5’s uptempo ride will keep your legs feeling fresh and put a pep in your step.

What’s New

HOKA combined the best parts of the HOKA Mach 4 and HOKA Mach Supersonic to make an even better Mach 5. They added PROFLY+ to the dual-density midsole for a softer and bouncier ride. HOKA also redesigned the upper giving it a single creel jacquard mesh for increased breathability, added a new heel for a better lockdown and a thinner tongue for more comfort.

Who It’s Best For

The HOKA Mach 5 is a great performance running shoe. It is durable enough for daily training but is light and snappy for speedwork or even racing.

Why You’ll Love It

Break out the aviators , because you will love feeling like you are flying in the HOKA Mach 5. The new midsole is bouncier and softer than ever, letting you pick up the pace whenever you feel the need for speed.

Hoka needs to stop changing a good thing.

Brian 6 months ago Verified Purchase

They Mach 5 cut across the front of my foot where the shoe laces tie. I tried tying the shoe different ways same result. I've been wearing Hoka's for over 10 years. They changed the Clifton. The 9 stabs me under the ankle and the Mach 5 runs hard and cuts me across the top of the foot. I ran my last marathon in Brooks more comfort and stability. Very sad at the subtle changes made to the Clifton that no longer fit me correctly and the Mach 5 very uncomfortable in many ways. Time to move on.

Not my cup of tea!

Mid-MO R 6 months ago Verified Purchase

So many people swear by these and I needed to replace my long distance shoes. I have always stayed away from Hokas for my reasons. I decided to swallow some pride and bought these. For comfort yes super comfortable. Everything else is just alright. I didn’t like how the outer sole is just foam. I slipped a couple of times. They aren’t as durable as others nor are they as fast. I get why people like them but not my cup of tea. For comfortable recovery runs and some nice casual long distance work I’ll stick with the NB 1080s. For faster long distance I’ll keep the Saucony Endo Speeds and for tempo workouts and race day hands down ASICS Magic Speeds.

Good replacement for Mach 4

Greg T 6 months ago Verified Purchase

I really liked the Mach 4 but this is a good replacement. The shoe seems slightly wider though than the previous. Still better than any of the other running shoes I tried.

Great Shoe Durability Concerns

Anonymous 7 months ago Verified Purchase

Fantastic shoes. Those first few runs in new Hoka’s are always awesome. Only downside is durability. These shoes will wear out after at most 6 months. However the price point makes not a bad hit. Overall great shoe especially paired with your unique insole.

Fast and comfortable.

Freedomtriclub 8 months ago Verified Purchase

Mach 5 is very fast for a 8.2 OZ shoe. The moment I put them on I felt like I was going to run well. I ran 2 half marathons and on them and I’m very happy 😃. Great all around shoe for training and racing.
