    For running, it's a very comfortable shoe. But it's a very stiff and rigid shoe. That helps your stride if you're a flat footed person, and then it has that huge medial post.

    Unlike the SpeedGoat, or for that matter the Clifton, the Infinite midsole is firmer but in no way harsh at all.

    The firmness contributes to a more responsive Hoka shoe than I have experienced in the past and the late stage metarocker makes this shoe feel lighter than it is.

    The shoe is somewhat like a two edge sword that it lets me feel that I’m connected to the ground but still gave that plush ride which I really enjoyed.
