The Mach 4 has undergone some significant changes and for the better, making this Hoka one of their best to date.
A very good and much needed improvement over its predecessor. Softer, smoother, more flexible and better fitting. One of the very best shoes from the Hoka stable.
Whilst being an update to an existing model, the new version of the Mach is a totally different and welcome change. A racer/trainer or tempo running model, I always felt the Mach was a little firm and inflexible without the feedback or response you want from this category of shoe. The Mach 4 however addresses all of these issues and makes it a shoe you could run in everyday at any speed.
It’s an altogether softer and smoother ride, much smoother. The shoe feels instantly welcoming and the new PROFLY cushioning in this shoes set up works very well. As you step out of the door the shoes cushioning feels soft and inviting. Further down the road as you pick up the pace the shoe turns to a more responsive feel, with a nice level of ‘spring’.
The fit is nicer too and the brand have upped their game a little here, with a better upper and nicer finish. The padding around the heel feeling noticeable plush and secure. The inner sole to the shoe remains a slight issue, it’s a little thin for my liking, but it shouldn’t be a deal breaker as you can simply swop it out for a slightly more substantial one.
Flex grooves and large waffle pattern.
In summary, this could be the best all-rounder from Hoka, with great cushioning, light weight and a versatile feel that means you could easily use it as an everyday trainer.
