HOKA Speedgoat 4


[Featured in our Best Trail Running Shoes Guide]

Named for HOKA Athlete Karl “Speedgoat” Meltzer, the Speedgoat 4 is the newest member of the Speedgoat clan.

Tackle any terrain with zonal rubber and 5mm lugs for added grip and stability. The Vibram Megagrip rubber outsole provides added grip for tough trails and slippery conditions. Fleet Feet testers praised the secure fit and reimagined, breathable mesh upper in the HOKA Speedgoat 4 review.

An expanded toe box provides added support and stability while 3D-printed overlays add midfoot support and lockdown for a secure feel. The midsole features a new, lightweight foam to deliver a cushioned, responsive ride.

Hit the ground running this winter with the super-grippy, super-comfy HOKA Speedgoat 4.

Rinse and repeat

Bought this second pair for my partner who had worn out her first pair with all the hiking and walking we do. Both of us wear Hoka shoes daily. Well built and help our old tired feet.

Like walking on a cloud!

At first, I was disappointed that my sister purchased these shoes for me as a gift. I had tried on a pair of HOKAs at my local running store and found them uncomfortable. I have a neuroma under my right foot so I need shoes with a wide toe box and support. I thought that all HOKAs just wouldn't feel good on my feet. Boy, was I wrong! As soon as I tried the Speedgoats, I felt like I was walking on a cloud. The toe box was wide. No pressure on my neuroma because the shoe provides cushioned support. I was always a Brooks gal, but I may now be a Speedgoat gal! I would love different (less loud) colors next time...and there will be a next time!

Great trail shoes, confusing sizing

I love Hoka One One trail shoes. No matter how fast or far I run, I feel like HOOs cushion my feet and make recovery a lot faster. My only issue with the brand is that the sizing is quite different from other brands. In other brands, I wear a 10 in any kind of running shoe. With HOO, I had to go down to a 9. With other HOO models, I've had some issues with a too-tight toe box, but the Speedgoat 4 doesn't have that issue. As other reviewers have noted, the Sppedgoat 4 has a rubberized-feeling tongue, rather than a fabric tongue. This can make for uncomfortable rubbing if you don't wear the right socks... but I think this is a good feature, since it encourages you to wear a higher sock on the trails. Overall, a great shoe, good for any kind of terrain. When I've run over wet asphalt in the Speedgoat, I haven't noticed the slipping I feel in other brands' trail running shoes, so this is a solid choice if you're going to have mixed road/trail runs.

Hoka Speedgoat.

I love my new Hokas! I was able to get the correct size in just a few days. They are super comfortable and perfect for trail hiking.
