Hoka One One Speed Instinct
Posted: Sep. 6th, 2016


Introducing the newest Hoka trail shoe, the Speed Instinct.

Speed Instinct

Hoka One One has been on the move lately introducing new more performance oriented models to their lineup. Now trail runners can get the cushion they love with a more performance oriented feel in the Speed Instinct. It’s the first shoe that uses Hoka’s new PRO2lite cushion. With PROtection in the heel, you get a softer feel that protects you from rocks and terrain while the PROpulsion in the forefoot gives you a more responsive feel. You’ll still notice classic Hoka One One technologies like their metarocker system for a smooth ride and lightweight; full cushion feel that have made them so popular. And with the seamless, air mesh upper with 3D printed overlays, your foot will feel secure.

But that’s enough of the technical stuff! How does it feel? We were pretty curious too, so here are our first thoughts after taking the shoe out for some miles.

The numbers:

  • Category: trail
  • Weight: men’s 8.40 oz, women’s 7.50 oz
  • Drop: 3 mm offset (19 mm forefoot, 22 mm heel)
  • Sizing: runs true to size
  • Price: $129.99
