HOKA ONE ONE co-founder and VP of Innovations Jean-Luc Diard introduces the Speed Instinct, which is all about speed and instinctive running. This new introduction from HOKA is responsive enough to race up the mountains, and forgiving enough to fly down them. It is super light with a very dynamic forefoot which helps you run fast on flat or rolling hills and gives you all the cushion you need when going downhill or are a little bit tired. The Speed Instinct is the first trail shoe to utilize HOKA ONE ONE’s PRO2Lite technology, with a soft heel density that transitions into a firmer, more responsive forefoot.
HOKA Athlete Magda Boulet says the Speed Instinct is for someone who likes running on different types of trails, and someone who likes to go fast.
HOKA Athlete Sage Canaday likes that the Speed Instinct provides confidence with great cushioning, traction and responsiveness.
