Speedgoat Mid v 2.0 for 2018
I was hopeful but concerned when I learned last year that several mid to high top versions of Hoka One’s trail runner / hiker’s were not being shown at the Outdoor Retailers Show, but last week I got a glimpse of the 2018 shoe line in a retailers catalog and there it was version 2.0 of the Hoka One Speed Goat Mid formally known as the “Speed Hiker”. The Speed Hiker was basically a Mid version of the original low cut Speedgoat trail runner which I also use as my running shoe. Shortly after visiting the gear shop I did an internet search and found this video with some looks and details regarding the updated version what a relief as another season ramps up. As I have said before I think it is one of the better true ultralight hiking and backpacking shoes for both on and off trail use with it’s excellent cushioning, wide, stable base, and 5 mm lugs that conform to the terrain and provide aggressive traction while the Mid height ankle provides a measure of support. Nice !
