VIDEO: Hoka One One Clifton Running Shoe Preview
This July, Hoka One One will launch the long-awaited Clifton model—a shoe that combines Hoka’s ultra-cushioned feel with a lightweight ride. The Clifton weighs 7.9 ounces for men (size 9) and 6.8 ounces for women (size 7), making it the lightest model in the brand's line of running shoes.

With an entirely-EVA midsole and RMAT outsole technology, the Clifton provides exceptional shock attenuation and inherent stability; despite have the classification and feel of a neutral shoe.

"The model provides a 4mm heel-to-toe drop to encourage a midfoot landing," noted Hoka One One Rep, Tony Grassi. "Meanwhile, the shoe's Early Stage Meta Rocker promotes a positive gait cycle."

This shoe should be compatible for training for all distances, including marathons and ultra-marathons.

Our Opinions on the Hoka Clifton

Curtis: "The Cliftons are way lighter than they look so they're a great option for race day. Take a few strides in the shoes and you will certainly feel the cushioning."

Dustin: "Traditionally, I wear stability shoes and I've had no problems with wearing Hoka models. The cushioning is the icing on the cake."
