Fastest Running Shoes, the Battle for Number One

Everyone wants to be fast and manufacturers are doing everything they can to make that more achievable. Shoes are getting lighter, more technically advanced, and even forcing governing bodies to put standards place to oversee what can and can't be done. The following list is some of the fastest out there right now and all road legal. Brooks Brooks Hyperion Elite Drop: 8mm Weight: 6.9oz Price: $250 Note this was NOT the ...

Hoka One One Arahi 4 Featured

Hoka One One Arahi 4 Review

Hoka has always done a great job balancing cushion and weight when it comes to shoe design, but they have taken it to another level by also taking into account stability. The Arahi model has gone through a number of iterations over the years, some looking a bit odd, but all with the same goal to give runners who need a little support a highly performant shoe. The Arahi 4 ...

Hoka One One Speedgoat 4 1

Hoka One One Speedgoat 4 Review

The Hoka One One Speedgoat 3 was a rampant favorite around here and not only did it dethrone the Challenger ATR at distance, but even for speed folks would choose it over the Torrent. The real question was... how would Hoka improve upon this with the launch of the Speedgoat 4. Clearly the answer is to not mess too much with a good thing because very little has changed and ...

Hoka One One Mach 3 Review

Hoka has some great speed shoes no question with models like the Rincon and the Carbon X and to some degree the Clifton. For a while, they played with a model that had a little more structure called the Clayton which has disappeared but truthfully it really gave way to the Mach platform. Mach 3 is the next iteration of this and you can think of it as a highly ...

Hoka One One Cavu 3 Featured

Hoka One One Cavu 3 Review

The easiest way to go into this review is to understand that the Cavu not really a Hoka, at least what you expect from Hoka to date. The stack is lower, cushioning is reduced, the upper is knit and snugger, so it doesn’t really hit on all those key points you might expect. The Cavu 3 builds on this and deviates even more from what you might expect and some ...

Hoka One One Elevon 2 Featured

Hoka One One Elevon 2 Review

Part of us didn’t want to love these when they first came in because honestly the initial Elevon weren’t that impressive and didn’t really find a solid place for us in the Hoka lineup. We are very happy to report though that the Elevon 2 feels like a massive improvement and while it's targeted at runners who need a bit of stability, it's not a requirement. We hit on the ...

Hoka One One Rincon 2

Hoka One One Rincon Review Review

The launch of the Hoka One One Rincon has been kind of unexpected in terms of what actually arrived. The shoe is this crazy mix of speed and cushioning that I don’t think anyone was expecting especially with the release of the Carbon X. I mean who would imagine a just over 7oz shoe to be paired with almost 30mm of stack height, it’s a little crazy... but it’s becoming ...

Hoka One One EVO Mafate 2 2

Hoka One One EVO Mafate 2 Review

When it comes to trail shoes, Hoka has had a couple of top choices, the Challenger ATR and the Speedgoat, but when the EVO Mafate 2 was released we wondered how it might fit. After putting it through its paces, it is clear it is basically the answer to what would the Rincon look like as a trail shoe. They come in under 9 ounces, feature a reinforced upper, sport ...

Hoka One One Clifton 6 1

Hoka One One Clifton 6 Review

Every time Hoka launches a new version of the Clifton, they are met with a divisive response. I think in some ways this is a good thing because it means that Clifton as a platform is important to the fans of Hoka. It’s a little disingenuous of the community because inevitably these shoes need to evolve and need to move forward and the Clifton 6 is a prime example of ...
