Great coverage! Any chance lovely Bjorn from Under Armour told you anything about the weight / other stats of the Sonic HOVR? Keep it up :)

No Vibram megagrip outsole for the Torrent.Is it going to replace the Speedgoat?

Torrent replaces Speed Instinct. Will have full preview article for Hoka in a few days.

Is the Mafate Speed EVO going to see wide release in the US? I know the Mafate Speed 2 didn't really see much of a release on this side of the pond.

Hi Anonymous,
It was a featured shoe for Hoka in the briefing so I would assume so. We had not seen in featured over the last few years.
