Great fit, nice lockdown with extra room around the toe given by the anatomical toe box. Fits true to sizing. A very neutral feeling shoe and incredibly durable. A high mileage shoe!
I purchased the Goshawks to support a fellow small WA business with the added bonus of them being Eco Friendly and the brand named after the Tarkine region in my home state. I was pleasantly suprised by the shoe. I recently ran the Lighthorse 24hr Ultra and used the Goshawks in my shoe rotation. Towards the end of the run, I could only get my feet into the Goshawks. The wide toe box allowed for my feet to swell and still remain comfortable. I used the Goshawks for a total of 16hrs out of the 24. Highly recommend. Looking forward to the release of the Trail shoes so I can add another pair of Tarkines to my rotation.
I usually wear a 10.5, and the goshawks are a good fit. The mesh uppers are a litlle tighter than i am used to, so thinner socks are recommended. Still, once worn a few times , you become accustomed and very comfortable. Plenty of room in the toe box . No pressure points. Sole hasn't worn at all after 100kms.
Not as supersoft as competitors, but comfortable just the same. Now , onto the next 900kms..., which I can attest, the others don't last as long...
60kms covered on the Great Ocean Road (50 road and 10 trail) … finished with no blisters, hot spots, sore feet or toes .. I was even able to go for a nice hike the next day! I have clocked up a few hundred kms in my Goshawks in the last few months and these shoes haven’t skipped a beat .. just the right amount of support (but definitely not stilettos) with a nice wide toe box … these are fantastic shoes - highly recommended thanks Tarkine ! 😊👍🏻
What a great shoe! The first shoe I've been able to run over 3hrs in and not finish with bruised nails or hot spots (and that was only after a week of use).
They are light enough for the fast sessions, soft enough for long days and tough enough for the Trail days.
I Love the extra space in the toe box, they don't feel like duck feet either.
The upper are light whilst retaining comfort, fast drying and let water out for wet days.
The tread is good over almost all surfaces, only under performing on wet sticky clay surfaces (honestly you need some knobly tread there).
I'll definitely be getting a second pair to keep them in high rotation.
Love these shoes! They are super comfy on the first run, feel really supportive and look amazing. The toe box is generous and great for the toes. Highly recommend
These have been great. Delivery was super fast. Would recommend.
Just returned to running after a 5 year break caused by injury and family... Really REALLY love these runners. I have previosly tried most major brands and have been a devotee of "Brand A" but saw the sustainable philosophy of Tarkine and thoughti'd give them a go. Philosophy aside, I would buy these over previous runners. They are super comfy, breathe amazing and look built to last though time will tell on that and i'm confident the quality as I found teh service offered by the team to be really friendly and helpful when I was looking to purchase. 60kms in i'm Loving them so far.
Super comfy, cushy and bouncy! Compared to the trail shows I had been running in previously, this took a few runs to get used to, as the shoe seemingly changed how my feet were landing with each step - however, once used to the different feel of the feel and toe box - it was like a dream and was like my feet had finally found their “sole-mates”
I love them
I run 80-120 km a week and have used Tarkin Goshawk a few times a week for a few months now. The shoes are very comfortable on short and long runs. They have good cushioning and do not seem to have had any significant wear. Would highly recommend.
I love my Tarkine t shirt, it is super soft and comfy and is my favourite bushwalking top and casual about town shirt.It never wrinkles, washes perfectly and I would gladly recommend it as a very versatile and attractive part of my wardrobe .
I have now been using these shoes for a few months running around 20 odd ks a week, I have been very impressed with the fit and quality of the shoes.
Very comfortable and light still maintaining support.
Just purchased my 4th Goshawk! Great for the gym and running but the real game changer is using the plain white and black pairs as my casual shoe. This has allowed better recovery between sessions instead of wearing my non supportive boat shoes.. which are now in the bin. Looking forward to what future models these guys come out with next. Cheers
Great fit, wide toe box, lightweight, good heal pocket. Would totally purchase again.
Amazing first shoe! For a neutral running shoe this is perfect, it’s cushioned, its soft , it’s versatile, it’s efficient. The Goshawk has been a pleasure to run in but also to just wear about as a casual all purpose shoe. So happy well done crew!!
