How Are Hoka Shoes Measured?
To find your size, measure your foot length (in inches) and use the chart below to determine your Hoka shoe size. If you already know your running shoe size, use this chart to find the comparable Hoka shoe size. It’s important to note that each manufacturer has its sizing chart, so it’s always best to consult a sizing guide specific to the brand.
Step 1: Measure the length
To determine your running shoe size, measure the length of your foot from arch to arch (between the widest and narrowest part of your foot).
Step 2: Next, subtract 1/2 inch from that measurement
This will give you the size that corresponds to your Hoka shoe. For example, if you measured 17 inches, then you would use a 14.5 for the Hoka Speedgoat and a 15 for the Speedgoat 2. If your measurements are between sizes, use the larger size.
Step 3: Subtract the size from your foot length to determine your running shoe size (in inches)
Notice that the Hoka Speedgoat runs very true to size, with a width that comfortably accommodates a wide foot. If you have a narrow foot, you will likely find the toe box comfortable. If in doubt, consider buying one half-size larger than usual.
Do Hoka Run Big or Small?
The Hoka Speedgoat runs very true to size, with a width that comfortably accommodates a wide foot. If you have a narrow foot, you will likely find the toe box comfortable. The women’s model of this shoe features an EVA midsole and an Ortholite X-40 sock liner for even more cushioning. A high-abrasion rubber outsole provides durability and traction on any terrain.
If you prefer an even wider fit, consider the Hoka Women’s Speedgoat 2, which has a forefoot width of EEEE. Some users have complained that the tongue on this shoe sometimes bunches up in a clump; however, this can be prevented if you tie your laces tightly.
Hoka Shoe Sizing vs Other Popular Brands
For all other popular brands, refer to the “what fits me” chart below. Most of these brands run small compared to the Hoka Speedgoat and tend to have a more firm fit. If you have a wide foot and are considering purchasing a pair of shoes from any of these brands, consider ordering a half-size up from what you typically wear.

General Guidelines To Hoka Shoe Sizing
The Hoka Speedgoat is one of the most popular trails running shoes on the market. It has a wide toe box intended to provide comfort and flexibility. The low heel allows runners to run at a faster speed while still giving them some ankle support. Due to the combination of features, there are no “one size fits all” options with the Hoka Speedgoat; if you have any doubts about sizing, it is best to consult your local running store for assistance.
1. How do you know which size is best for you?
We recommend going based on your current pair of footwear. If you can comfortably wear your current running shoes, go with the same size when purchasing Hoka shoes.
2. Starting with the bigger size
If you are unsure about sizing and want to try a pair of Hokas, we suggest starting with the bigger size. You can always order a smaller size later if needed. Remember that most of our shoes are not eligible for return.
3. Try before you buy
If you are interested in purchasing a pair of Hokas, we suggest getting to a store, trying on the shoe, and running approximately 200 meters (1/4 mile) to see how they feel. This way, you can ensure it’s the right size and model for your foot type. Also, be sure to try them on with your current running socks.
4. How do you determine your correct running shoe size?
A chart is available on the Hoka website for measuring your foot and determining your correct running shoe size. However, we recommend you measure your foot at home to ensure you get the correct measurement.
How is Hokas different from other trail running shoes?
Hoka shoes provide a more cushioned and comfortable ride than other trail running shoes. While they are best used for short to moderate distances, they can also be used in longer races. As your foot lands, the midsole will compress under your weight, providing a soft sensation. Because of their unique design, Hokas have an excellent grip on any terrain, allowing you to tackle any conditions or trails without the worry.
What’s the difference between Hoka and Altra trail shoes?
While both brands have an excellent selection of running shoes, they have distinct differences. While Hoka is a lighter shoe, Altra Trail Shoes are typically sturdier. The fit of the Speedgoat is similar to that of the Altra Lone Peak, with a slightly more aggressive design and cushioning. These shoes also feature more technical features, including toe pockets for better grip in wet conditions.
How do I clean Hokas?
Hoka shoes are especially easy to maintain. Toss them in the washing machine with light detergent and warm water when you get them dirty. You can use Woolite or another mild detergent on your other clothes to remove any stains. If you follow these cleaning guidelines, you will find that your Hokas will stay clean for long periods.
What does Hoka mean?
Hoka is a Maori word meaning “going fast.” The Speedgoat shoe is known for being able to help you cover ground faster. Originally, the Hoka brand was distributed only in New Zealand and Japan. However, it has recently gained popularity in the United States and Australia (starting with the Speedgoat 1). Many runners have found that this shoe has helped them run as fast as they ever have while also providing great cushioning.
Is Hokas helpful for injury prevention?
If you have a history of lower limb injuries, including shin splints, consider trying a pair of Hokas. Because this shoe has so much cushioning, it helps reduce the impact running has on your joints and muscles. This is especially important if you have weak muscles in your leg’s medial or lateral compartment. The first time you wear these shoes, they feel like they will give way under your feet. However, as you run in them more and get used to the extra cushioning, you will find that they provide great stability.
