What is the difference between Hoka Speedgoat 5 and Hoka Mafate Speed ​​4? And what kind is the answer?

.

HOKA SPEEEDGOAT 5 and HOKA MAFATE SPEED 4

.

In 2022, Hoka has released another popular trail shoe. That is the Hoka Speedgoat 5. and Mafate Speed ​​4, which many people may ask, eh? Looking at both of them, they seem to be the TOP models of the company. So, how should I choose? Touching the fabric, flipping to look at the floor, looking at the foam, I'm still wondering which model to choose. What a difficult decision. Because both seem to be good and the technology is not ordinary at all.

.

So now let me take everyone to look at each section one by one. Both in terms of technology The feeling of the first time wearing it and personal opinions If you're ready, go on an adventure with me.

.

UPPER

Hoka Speedgoat 5 : recycled polyester and double jacquard recycled mesh

Hoka Mafate Speed ​​4 : jacquard mesh

Although they both seem to use jacquard mesh, it's true. But the feel of both is very different in terms of the surface texture. Speedgoat 5 feels softer, gentler on the skin of the feet and also provides better support than Mafate Speed ​​4. Absolutely, it might be because Speedgoat 5 itself is mixed with Polyester, which makes a difference. Mafate Speed ​​4 feels more durable and harsh, not as durable. Speedgoat 5

.

And next is the matter of adding TPU and placing various patterns on the shoes, which results in making the uppers of both pairs more different. Because the placement of the pattern and TPU like in the Mafate Speed ​​4 makes the shoe firm and stable, but at the cost of the shoe not being able to expand much, which in Speedgoat 5 There won't be any additional stitching or TPU on the strip. Makes the fabric expand fully. This results in comfort for the forefoot, but when downhill it may cause instability. Because there is no help in supporting the feet. (It will flow together more easily forward)

.

In the matter of Toe Cap, although they have some different characteristics, But if you observe carefully, the distance, thickness, and width are very similar. From what I tried to press test. It feels like it protects your toes just as well as it does. They are not significantly different.

Let's talk about the tongue and laces. Both models have the same type of rope, which is flat. Same length But the point of difference is the tongue of the shoe because the Mafate Speed ​​4 will have a thick, soft appearance like normal sneakers seen on the market, while the Speedgoat 5 will be thin (at this point if anyone has a bulging instep or has a lot of foot space, Maybe I don't like the Mafate Speed ​​4 because it's tight on the back of the foot), but I personally like the thick and soft one more than the thin one, haha.

If we come to the back of the shoe, the Heel Counter part has a similar appearance. The difference is that the Mafate Speed ​​4 has a rope loop for attaching to when wearing shoes. Makes it easier to put on than the Speedgoat 5.

.

Summary of Upper Personally, I think that if anyone likes comfort The front of the foot is a bit wide. Give yourself more The fabric is flexible and comfortable, go to the Speedgoat 5, but if anyone likes a tight fit and wants shoes that support serious feet in these issues, go to the Mafate Speed ​​4.

MIDSOLE

Hoka Speedgoat 5: compression-molded EVA foam (CMEVA)

Hoka Mafate Speed ​​4 : PROFLY™+

At this point, I must say that it is a very clear technological difference because, for example, Speedgoat is still used as EVA, but it is a newly developed EVA that is different from Mafate Speed ​​4 that uses PROFLY™+ technology. Have chosen to use EVA like Speedgoat 5.

.

From wearing it and feeling it, I feel that the Mafate Speed ​​4 feels softer and more friendly to the foot than the Speedgoat 5. The Speedgoat 5 feels softer but firmer. (But if you run down the heel completely I feel it is just as soft.)

Next is the rocker shape of both. I feel that the front of the Speedgoat 5 is higher, making it easier to roll the foot and make laps better than the Mafate Speed ​​4. But if talking about stability, This must be allowed by Mafate Speed ​​4. He's thick. The height is not too high and the height of the feet is good for balance. Makes foot placement more confident

.

Summary about Midsole I like soft, stable, not too high ground. Mafate Speed ​​4, but if you want to go fast, go fast. Roll your feet well and spin your legs. Speedgoat 5 is better.

OUTSOLE

Hoka Speedgoat 5 : VIBRAM® MEGAGRIP WITH TRACTION LUG

Hoka Mafate Speed ​​4 : VIBRAM® MEGAGRIP WITH LITEBASE CONSTRUCTION AND TRACTION LUG

"The gingerness of Mafate Speed ​​4" Why I say this is because if you look at the technology that is put into the floor of Mafate Speed ​​4, you will see that everything is similar to Speedgoat 5. All of them, but I said ginger because Everything is the same but the weight is lighter. This isn't called ginger, what should I call it? Haha. It has good adhesion, is durable, and adds a small button. Come in too. But it has reduced weight. If Speedgoat 5 could complain, it would say, "Then why is it mine?" It's not like that TT"

.

But even though the technology is the same But the flower patterns provided are different. If you look at the picture, you can see that the Speedgoat 5 flower pattern is small but sharper. The Mafate Speed ​​4 flower pattern is wider and larger, but the sharpness is less. My personal opinion is that if you encounter a lot of mud, the flowers with large and distant patterns are good. The mud may stick harder than those with sharp, small and frequent flower patterns. But vice versa, if in the case of normal ground Those with small, sharp and frequent flowers will be better at clinging to, pecking, and pulling the ground. But if you look at the length and depth of the Mafate Speed ​​4 tread, the tread is deeper, helping to grip the ground well. Good traction, but may be too good for those who want touch-and-go speed. If this is the case, the Speedgoat 5 will move forward faster. Because the flowers are small, sharp, frequent, but not deep.

.

Summary of Outsole If you want shoes that emphasize good traction, be confident in the Mafate Speed ​​4. But if you want shoes that have good traction, be confident. and easily tap to jump forward Speedgoat 5

Final summary

Before introducing and saying goodbye Personally, if I were to choose, I'd secretly lean towards Mafate Speed ​​4 because of its thickness and height that aren't too much. Plus the firmness of the feet Makes movement quite flexible. The resulting foam is quite suitable for the hair, which is soft but plump. Makes it possible to accelerate to some speed. As for the floor and tread In this part, I like both models, so I'm not stuck on this issue. So why didn't I choose Speedgoat 5? Because the forefoot isn't very wide. I feel like when I wear the Speedgoat 5, if I go downhill, my foot slides down in front more than usual. Including the balance is not as good as the Mafate Speed ​​4 because my legs are bent, which makes it difficult to land. It won't go down like normal. There may be some moments that can be reversed. (In the past, I was a Speedgoat fanboy, but when I came across Mafate Speed ​​4, I secretly asked to switch sides, haha.)

.

Let's just say that if anyone likes "stable, firm, soft" Mafate Speed ​​4

But if anyone likes "comfortable feet, good leg swing, a little tight, a little racing" Speedgoat 5
