The HOKA ONE ONE Speedgoat 4 will take you wherever you want to go.
HOKA delivered the new ‘Goat with a more accommodating toe box than the previous version and a lighter, more responsive midsole. But the soul is all Speedgoat.
A host of 5 mm lugs will help you keep your footing on the trail, and Vibram MegaGrip rubber gives the shoe traction on slippery rocks and roots. Like all HOKA running shoes, the Speedgoat 4 has a beefy midsole that protects your feet from rugged trails.
Fleet Feet testers laced up the shoe for the HOKA Speedgoat 4 review, and they praised the improved fit and burly upper.
With a big stack height and comfortable fit, the HOKA ONE ONE Speedgoat 4 is ready for anything.

I bought these for my wife. She loves running in them. They are true to size, and add cushion and stability to her stride.
I had the Stinson last year but Speedgoat is a better fit for me. Great fit, more narrow than the Stinson. Good stability. I liked them so much I bought a second pair.
I love the Speedgoat 3 and I’ve found the 4 even better. It’s basically the same except the toe box is roomier. Perfect! This trail shoe has deep lugs that have worked very well in thick deep mud, miles of of it. It also has plenty of cushion for long bumpy runs.
Overall I am loving the shoe. I am a loyal Hoka wearer. The only thing I’d note is that the tongue is thin and rigid and hits me just above the ankle which means I feel it with each step and it affects what socks work and don’t work with the shoe. If you like wearing a low sock this version of the Speedgoat might not work for you. The version before this one had a soft “regular” tongue. But the rest of the shoe is totally dreamy!
This is my 2nd pair of Speedgoats. I like this version better than the last because of the wider toe box and slightly stiffer sole. I agree with another reviewer that the tongue is too stiff and too short. This is a great shoe for winter running with the highly lugged sole. Looking forward to trail running in this shoe!
