Product Summary

The HOKA Speedgoat 5 is a waterproof trail running shoe designed to succeed on a variety of terrains wet and dry. They have neutral support and Hoka’s balanced cushioning. The men’s shoe weighs 10.8 ounces and the women’s weighs 9.2 ounces. They both have a 4-millimeter heel-to-toe drop.

The Speedgoat 5 is waterproofed via a water-resistant mesh upper and bootie. The upper also has 3D printed overlays to increase support throughout the midfoot. The midsole uses a lightweight foam. The 5’s features a new wider forefoot to increase stability. The Vibram MegaGrip outsole uses high performance rubber and “stepped” 5-mm lugs to provide great traction in wet and dry conditions.

The Speedgoat 5 has many positive reviews that found the shoes to be comfortable and provide solid traction. Customers used these shoes for a variety of purposes from hiking, walking, and working with many people purchasing multiple pairs. They all appreciated that the shoes were able to keep their feet comfortable and dry.

Negative reviews found the tongue uncomfortable and wished it was padded. They also wished the shoe was wider and more colors were available. Most users found the shoe to run small and recommended ordering a half size above your regular shoe size. If you do get the wrong shoe, HOKA lets you wear the shoe for 30 days and return or exchange it free of charge.
