Super comfortable, lightweight and amazing considering it’s made from recycled plastic bottles. Tarkine has a great business. Highly recommend buying.
A long time sufferer of exertional compartments syndrome, I thought my runnning and jumping days were behind me. ENTER the Tarkine Goshawk. Weird name exceptional shoe. Goodbye compartments syndrome hello running. Have already converted 5 friends to Tarkine and they love them also.
I’m onto my second pair of the Goshawks, they are a very good, reliable shoe. Nothing fancy but a decent neutral shoe to get 800-1000km out of. The lacing position and sock feel takes a couple of runs to get use to but once there I found them very comfortable. Shoe size is accurate.
My second pair of Tarkine and my first of the Goshawk 2. Out of the box there didn’t appear to be a great difference from the first iteration, though is a few months since my dog ate the original pair. On feet though the improvements are apparent. Excellent fit and comfort, the Goshawk 2 feels cushioned but responsive, with plenty of room for the forefoot. I usually run in 2e width, and these are plenty wide enough without being floppy. The original pair took a few runs for my foot to bed down (after which they were excellent) but this pair was great straight out of the box. All in all an excellent progression from the original Goshawk without losing any of the original’s unique character. Great customer service too, and quick delivery to NZ. I can’t wait to try out the Trail Devils when they are released.
Add to this it’s an Australian company with great eco credentials. Brilliant.
I have two pairs of V1 and I bought my partner a pair too. We adore these shoes! We both run and walk 70-120km a week so the shoes get a good work out and my partner is an elite in the 50yrs+ category.
Since getting these shoes I've been stealing Crowns on Strava and running some of my best 5km times in the last 10 years! The shoes are so comfy and bouncy I wish I could wear them everywhere. The only improvement that could be made is to the heel fabric which I believe has been addressed in the V2. I can't wait to try the new model!
Also incredibly good customer service, fast shipping and unbeatable ethics. I wish this company every success!
Been running marathons since 1980 and only discovered toe socks a few years ago. If you’ve never tried them, do. These one are really good. I got a 5 pair pack.
Thin and comfy with a good bit of stretch. Great value
Nice, comfy-fitting shorts. And the zippered pocket - great to see! Great to wear something that puts our plastic waste to good use!
The Tarkine Ultra-Eco Run Tee is a great, comfortable fit and so soft! Good to see people creating something so awesome from our plastic waste. Fingers crossed that a few colour options become available.
For me, this slots in nicely as the perfect everyday trainer. A lightweight, comfortable ride that offers protection and cushion and feels great for my easy runs in between sessions. Thanks Tarkine.
Brilliant. Comfortable. Sturdy. Light. The delivery was impeccable. I can't wait to get more of these awesome shoes.
Great for everyday use!
My first pair lasted 1700 kms. All terrains. All conditions. Through rivers and up mountains. Pair 2 (all black) look very business like. Comfy first run. Get your feet in these beauties.
Well pleased with these. Actually ordered V1’s but was upgraded to the V2. Nice surprise and a very comfortable shoe to wear.
Done a few runs in them and love them! Feels great and knees are happy! Will definitely be buying more. Also great customer service!
