In its fourth edition, the Mach 4 takes its biggest leap forward, built on themes inspired by the Rocket X and Carbon X. Designed for logging long miles, this everyday trainer delivers a lively ride and energetic underfoot feel that is unquestionably HOKA. Softer and bouncier than the previous iteration, the Mach 4 employs a harmonious blend of foams — merging an incredibly soft, lightweight foam on topwithrubberizedfoamdirectlybeneath.Thisup-temposhoehasbeencraftedwithanewpulltab, revamped upper made from heat pressed TPU embroidered yarns, and a refined collar shape that alleviates pressure on the Achilles. Light, fast and unquestionably responsive, the Mach 4 delivers a daily dose of speed.
• Engineered mesh delivers breathable comfort
• Anatomical Achilles construction

This has got to be one of Hoka’s finest creations so far! The latest Mach is super light yet has enough guts for support and comfort. It’s a pleasure to run in from 5 to 50k and beyond!
This shoe is amazing. I love my Bondi's, but this one comes really close second. When I got the box, I had to shake it to make sure there were shoes in there as it the box was so light. The Mach 4's not as marshmellowly as the Bondi, but the feel is much more responsive. I have worn the Mach 4 for road runs and my local Sydney bush stairs and they have responded really well. I currently have PF, and it is a slow recovery but these shoes have not annoyed it anyway. If oyu are considering a good all around shoe, then this is one to at least try on.
