Give that tough old billy goat a run for its money.
If you had four legs and a solid set of hoofs, then you'd be able fly up steep and rocky mountains without breaking a sweat, but your physiology is a bit more bipedal, so you rely on Hoka One One's Speedgoat Women's Trail Running Shoe, which is just about as efficient. With loads of cushioning, a ridiculously rugged Vibram sole, and a lightweight but supportive NoSew SpeedFrame design, the Speedgoat has been designed to handle rugged terrain and technical trails as well as any goat ever could. The injected EVA midsole puts 31mm of cushioning at the heel for supreme comfort on packed-out and rocky trails, while the trail-specific outsole flex grooves give the shoe a natural roll from heel strike to toe off. Hoka's Meta-Rocker geometry also helps you enjoy a smooth foot roll throughout your stride, which adds long-distance efficiency to the Speedgoat's already-awesome stability.

- Q & A
Momma loves 'em!
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
I bought these shoes for my momma. She needed a lot of cushion for standing around at work all day, but it didn't take long for her to recognize the shoe's true ability on the trail. We hiked all around Yosemite last week, and she absolutely loved them. She stayed on her feet while we hiked over slippery stones, whereas I slipped and fell. As far as running is concerned, she has yet to try, but I'm sure she will since she loves these shoes so much. She said the fit was just right.
