Hoka Speedgoat Mens Blue/Red Orange
HOKA are a unique shoe brand and their specialism is providing more cushioning than any other shoe manufacturer (up to 3 times more). The shoes are ideal for marathon running, ultra distance and general high mileage training. They are also popular with heavier runners and those who suffer recurring injuries caused by impact. The stack height is large due to the volume of cushioning provided, this makes the shoe looks extremely bulky and a little odd. Due to their excessive size, many people think they will also be heavy, but their looks are deceptive. The Speedgoat has 1.5 times the cushioning of a normal mileage shoe. On the cushioning scale, it sits between a normal mileage/trail shoe and the Stinson ATR. It still has a very soft feel, making it ideal for trail marathons and ultra. The drop on the HOKA Speedgoat is 5mm, which promotes forefoot running and all HOKA shoes have a rocker system which reduces heel impact and encourage a heel to toe rolling action. Pretty much all HOKA are neutral shoes, so there's no real support option. This shoe will feel more cushioned than other mileage shoes, but if it's still not enough, try Stinson ATR or Mafate Speed.
