Women's Hoka Speedgoat 4

Hoka One One may have built their reputation around soft, heavily cushioned road and trail runners but we think that the Speedgoat 4 is an exceptional all-rounder.

The shoe has a thick midsole like Hoka's other shoes, but it balances comfort with weight very well while providing protection from rocks or dirt on hikes.

It also features a high traction outsole which holds up in both wet and dry environments making this one of our favorites for hiking despite its relatively low price point!


Brooks Cascadia GTX 15

Though the Cascadia has been a staple in Brooks' line for years, its 15th iteration still claims to be their best. This should tell you two things: one, runners (and thru-hikers) love this shoe and turn it to year after year as their go-to option for technical trail needs.

Hoka Speed Goat 4

GORE-TEX® and our Pivot Post system means you can confidently go the extra mile. The light, flexible upper provides a natural feel so you're not compromising on your run and the Pivot Post System offers stability and a natural feel with every stride.


Nike Pegasus Trail 2

The Nike Pegasus Trail 2 is a quality, max-cushioned option for trail work. It has been completely retooled from the ground up to include React midsole and wide flair forefoot which provide stability on moderate terrain as well as rubber outsole that provides solid traction in every situation.

Nike puts most of its efforts into road-running gear, but the Pegasus Trail 2 is a quality max cushioned option for trail work.
