Speed goat 5 is not very good for a Terain shoe
Into my third pair of Hoka One one. first two pairs I could not really fault as a trail runner. But the "Speed goat 5" are just not cutting it on so many fronts. I find that they lack upper foot support. they have less cushioning at the front so I feel jaggered rocks pushing though the sole more as I pass over them. the upper material is much more flexible loosing the strong support around the foot on uneven terrain. On a section of track I was negotiating I found that the heel of the shoe had slipped around and that I was stepping into the sid...e wall. As i passed through some wet areas of the track where I have done many times before the Speed goat 5 just let the water straight in this never happened on my previous Hoka One One Atr shoes. I would much more reccomend the "Speed Goat 5" for a dirt road runner more so than a ATR. SrpWilson
Not as great as some reviews have recommended.
I was recommended these shoe by Athlete's foot and they have caused nothing but calf pain. At first I had thought it was due to weak muscles. After, strengthening exercises, conditioning work and frequent massages (including dry needling) I was still in pain during long runs. Turns it was the shoe! The shoe is what is called a bare foot runner which is not great for those with pronate. The running specialist I spoke said he would never stock the shoe because he feels it is dangerous to a runners health.
After a recommendation of Brook's, I am back out running with no calf pain.
Be careful of the hype behind the Hoka shoe.
