Hoka One One Speed Instinct Trail Running Shoe - Women's

Scamper up steeps, blast down trails.

Charge the trail with sure-footed precision and cushy comfort when you're wearing the unique rocker design of the Hoka One One Women's Speed Instinct Trail Running Shoe. Designed to conquer a wide variety of trail, alpine, and forest surfaces, the aggressively lugged sole claws into loose dirt, slick rock outcroppings, and steep inclines along mountains. High-abrasion rubber ensures longevity when you're subjecting these shoes to the abuse of trail running.

Staying true to Hoka's unique running philosophy, the Speed Instinct delivers maximum cushioning alongside Meta-Rocker Geometry. This combination of pronounced midsole design, low heel-toe differential, and sculpted rocker creates a fulcrum-like effect, guiding the runner's gait for an efficient, smooth stride. Another Hoka signature feature, the Pro²Lite midsole is softer at the heel for extra impact absorption (especially for heels strikers), becoming stiffer at the forefoot for speedy propulsion at toe-off.

Hoka know how to make amazing shoes

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs large
  • Size Bought: 8.5

I have been using Nike running shoes my whole life and I was a strong supporter in only using Nike for my running shoes, I still love Nike, but I am now a 100% Hoka running shoe supporter now. I can feel the difference already. The feel of the fit is comfortable and supportive. My joints do not hurt after my run as well. I would totally recommend this shoe to anyone. I did have to exchange for a smaller size because I feel like they ran a little large but all around one of the best shoes I have ever ran in.


  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
  • Fit: True to size

I had always shied away from the Hoka's because they looked like they would be really heavy. I am in my sneakers all day and on my feet. I had been having trouble with my feet being really sore all the time. A friend recommended the Hokas. They are great. Super comfortable and really light. My feet no longer hurt all the time. I would definitely recommend these to anyone who has foot issues.

Comfortably cradles your feet with great support. Have used on uneven dirt/rocky trails and on brick sidewalks in town. Comfortable in both types of terrain. Not clunky but light and supportive. My first pair of Hoka One but definitely not my last. Pearl Izumi has been last couple of pairs of running shoes but I like the Hoka even better. Fits true to size!
