This is my sons 2nd pair of Goshawks! He loves training in them. They have become his go to running shoe.
Have just switched to Tarkine Goshawk for road training. Super comfortable fit, stable and secure on the road. Thanks for the speedy delivery, and fantastic communication!
I was really looking forward to trying this shoe, and so far so good. At first try they seemed a bit tight, and the sole is quite firm. After a couple of runs they have broken in well, and were surprisingly good on rocky single track. I removed lacing across the forefoot to reduce hotspots (wide feet), and am slightly disappointed that you cannot create a heel lock with the lacing setup. I experience slight heel slippage on one foot, so it's unlikely that I will use them for races. All in all though they are a great trainer that will hopefully go the distance.
I've been running for over 40 years and have lost count of how many different brands and models of shoes I have used and abused. I've run a few hundred miles in the Goshawks on road and trail before writing this review and I cannot remember ever running in any shoe that feels as good to me as the Goshawks. After a few hundred miles they still feel as comfortable and cushioned as new and with minimal tread wear. Congratulations to the Tarkine team for producing such a high quality running shoe. I originally ordered the wrong size and colour and requested to exchange the shoes, Sam was very obliging and helpful when arranging my exchange shoes. I highly recommend these shoes and Company and wish them ongoing success into the future.
Great running shoes.
Love the brand!
