When Hoka One One released the original Speedgoat trail running model, it instantly became one of the world’s most popular mountain running shoes. With a maximally cushioned midsole, a secure upper and a high-traction outsole, it won awards, races and the satisfaction of thousands of trail runners around the planet.

How can it be improved or evolved? Introducing the Speedgoat 4 GTX trail runner and Speedgoat Mid 2 GTX mid-cut fast hiker, the ultimate all-terrain vehicles for inclement weather out on the trails. If you’re trail running, hiking or peak bagging in rain, snow, mud, cold or any kind combination of sloppy conditions, they’ll keep your feet warm and dry and keep you moving safely and securely on the trail.

Both shoes feature a lusciously soft and springy oversized EVA midsole cushion, durable engineered mesh uppers, Gore-Tex waterproof booties to keep water from seeping in and extra-grippy Vibram Megagrip outsole rubber for conquering wet and dry technical terrain.

The low-cut Speedgoat 4 GTX trail runner has a fast-and-light vibe about it, serving up an energetic ride, reliable traction and long-haul comfort. The Speedgoat Mid 2 GTX has an ergonomically designed molded foam collar for optimal ankle support, ensuring a stable ride over any type of terrain.
