Inspired by Karl Melzter, who holds the record for most 100-mile trail race wins, the fastest completion of the (2,190 mile) Appalachian Trail, and epitomizes the "go everywhere, run everything" attitude, this shoe is designed to attack all breeds of technical trail. And with this bold, fully redesigned iteration, we've improved fit, stability, and durability. Built on a new last, the wider midsole creates a more stable platform for the foot and offers a wider toe box with reinforced areas where your feet need them. The outsole features deeper, more aggressive Vibram lugs which hold up to all kinds of rugged terrain, while the more forgiving upper offers improved comfort up top. The SPEEDGOAT 2 means business. This is one fast, tough trail running shoe.
A versatile performer, this shoe excels in the mountains, on the roads and everywhere in between. Dubbed the Clifton for trail running, this updated CHALLENGER is cushy, fast and very surefooted. The now well established HOKA midsole geometry and early stage mid-sole rocker promise a smooth ride, and the '3's supportive fit through the mid-foot makes for an even more comfortable experience on road or trail. The breathable upper with reinforcing overlays, and rubber-tipped lugs for all-terrain traction, complete the offering.
