Comments about Mens Hoka One One Speed Instinct Trail Running Shoe:

Had high hopes for this shoel and so excited to finally get my hands on a pair. After my first run, 10k trail run. Noticed the upper was separating from the midsole. This is my first time purchasing a pair of Hokas, not impressed with the quality. I have never had a pair of shoes fall apart this fast. Its a joke.

Comments about Mens Hoka One One Speed Instinct Trail Running Shoe:

Hoka Cliftons are my road shoe choice for over three years. Was excited about the lower profile Speed Instinct as a Hoka option for the trails. Speed Instinct has the great ground feel I was hoping, but are just too tight across the forefoot. My size 10 Cliftons are roomy, but the size 10 Speed Instinct is way too tight

Comments about Mens Hoka One One Speed Instinct Trail Running Shoe:

This shoe is nearly perfect. It's light, cushioned but responsive. I like having more of a ground feel to my shoes so Hokas haven't been my thing, but I like almost everything about the Instinct. The one change I would like to see is a stickier rubber or slightly more aggressive outsole on the shoe.

Might make a Hoka convert out of me

  • Good Traction
  • Lightweight
  • Wide Toe Box

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Mixed Terrain
    • Trail Running

    Comments about Mens Hoka One One Speed Instinct Trail Running Shoe:

    Decided to give this a try since it has the wider toe box and better ground feel compared to other Hoka shoes. It seems to fit the bill for my needs. Some people say this is a short distance race shoe but I plan to use it as one shoe in my quiver for an upcoming 120 miler. The fit is near perfect and is similar to the La Sportiva Akasha. The toe box provides more room than most shoes though is a little narrower than an Altra. The sole is rubberized and should prove more durable on rocky trails than the EVA foam typically used. It is a little bit stiffer than other shoes I prefer but I'm guessing the flexibility will improve with time. The cushioning is nice but does not feel overly soft. This shoe should work well for most trail conditions except for thick mud. If Hoka continues to make similar shoes in the same last, I might become a Hoka convert. It would be nice to see a more aggressive lug similar to the Speedgoat with this same fit. A more breathable upper might be another good option to try. This one works fine for my purposes in the Pacific Northwest, but I could see this being a little hot in with high temps.

        The Speed Instinct is just a perfect trail shoe. The lower profile gives you a better feel of the terrain than the Challenger but still is a well cushioned and responsive shoe. I have run 5 to 17 mile runs in the Speed Instinct with no negative experience. I like Hoka's as much for how light they are as much as anything, 8.4 ounces for a trail shoe? yep I'm a fan.

          Comments about Mens Hoka One One Speed Instinct Trail Running Shoe:

          Avid fan of the Speedgoat and was looking for a lighter, faster option for shorter races. Since taking them for a spin, I can say I'd run a 50K in them easily but will save the Speedgoat for those longer treks. The Speed Instinct has plenty of toe room, feels great on the South Eastern trails I spend most of my time on and has solid traction on dusty trails. I'd hesitate to take it on sloppy/wet trails, but it is a welcomed shoe for flat, fast terrain.

                Love these shoes! Bought these several weeks ago and promptly did a grueling 20 mile trail run up and down steep terrain. Good traction, light, perfect amount of drop. I've taken these on 3 20-mile runs so far without any issues. First pair of Hoka, but these are the perfect shoes for me! I went a half size up from my usual mostly for slightly more room in terms of width.
