Traction, grip, durability, the Mafate Speed 3 can offer it all. The Mafate is built for long days in the mountains, followed by more long days in the mountains. The deep and luggy Vibram MegaGrip outsole can handle mud, dirt, and rocky terrain with easy. The midsole will have a familiar Hoka feel, but will offer a bit more bounce and resiliency, as it fuses Hoka's soft EVA blend with a more durable and responsive rubberized EVA.
The upper does a great job of locking down the foot with excellent built in structure through the heel and midfoot. The forefoot has an elastic stretch panel that does a great job of allowing the forefoot to splay on long days and big adventures.
