    Comments about Mens Hoka One One Clifton 3 Running Shoe:

    Ten years ago I was a competitive runner. I'd run 5 minute pace for daily runs and today I'm lucky to run 12 minute pace with a pitbull chasing me. I simply stopped running and took a job that had me eating! So starting all over again I chose these shoes in place of my once regularly used flats. I've gotta say while it's extremely hard starting all over from scratch I wouldn't make it out the door without these Hoka running shoes. They give my huge behind the cushioning I need while giving me the old old feeling of lightness my days of sub 15 minute 5k times had on my feet. I'm loving these shoes!

        The clifton 3 is the clifton 2 how it should be :-)
        Sizing toebox like the clifton 1 and better and softer material of the clifton 2. Thx Hoka that you listen to your customer :-)

          I have been running on Hoka's exclusively for 4 years now...and currently run 25 miles a week. I received my Clifton 3's yesterday and ran my normal 6-mile loop this morning and can't believe how comfortable these are. These are my favorite Hoka's ever! They finally listened to the complaints of the footbed being too narrow. The toe box is very roomy with plenty of wiggle room for the toes. Thanks Hoka.

            So I used to run in minimalist shoes....but now I'm 40. The Clifton 3s are fastest most comfortable shoes I've worn in a decade. If you can get over the fact that they look like orthopedic shoes...you'll be super cush!

            I hate to complain and lobby while giving a review but I can't help it. Hoka, PLEASE BRING BACK THE ORIGINAL. I MISS my original Hoka Clifton SO BAD. The Clifton 2 was heavier, to narrow in the tow box, worst of all, didn't have an achilles V cut out on the back, and I got a blister on my big tow for whatever reason. Clifton 3 did have better wear on the bottom and a better tow box than the 2 but NOTHING compares to the Clifton 1, the LIGHTEST, two insert foot pads, best tow box, AWESOME shoe tongue, V cut out for your achilles tendon, etc. The ONLY thing is put that last black piece of better wearing material on the bottom of the shoe (up front) and go with it...STOP worrying about "newness" all the time and go back to what works and I will BUY them forever!!! And 1/2 my high school and middle school cross country and track teams will too!! PLEASE

              If you have sore knees &/or back problems ,buy this shoe. I stopped running for 10 years because of a bulging disc & knee pain. At 51, I am running 3 miles @ 9 min/mile. I am an old Marine and gained 30 pounds being lazy. Running in Hokas helped get my cholesterol back down and made me a happier man. I bought 3 other pair of shoes before I found Hoka. I gave the Adidas & Nike to the homeless.

                I've been a big fan of the Hoka Cliftons since they were launched. I've been through about 5-6 pairs of Cliftons. I recently purchased the Clifton 2 and I have about 100 miles on them. I liked the 2, but felt like it wasn't as cushioned as the 1, and the toe area in the 2 felt a little snug. Well, I just finished my first run in the Clifton 3. Wow! The magic of the original Clifton has returned in the 3! Great cushioning and lightweight. A little more room in the toe box than the Clifton 2 as well. Bottom line, while the Clifton 2 was a solid alternative to the original Clifton, I had a better running experience in the Clifton 3. Can't wait to hit the road again in my new Clifton 3s!

                    Comments about Mens Hoka One One Clifton 3 Running Shoe:

                    The Clifton is the perfect blend of cushioning and responsiveness. It gives me a great shoe to run long training runs without trashing my legs but also responsive enough to race in. I have run in each edition of the shoe, and the extra weight the shoe has gained since the first edition is not a huge factor for me. The increased forefoot width is a big plus which more than offsets the weight gain. I get about 500 miles out of a pair which makes it an incredible bargain compared to other shoes.

                      Just ran my PR in them at the Revel Half Marathon. They are the best. No break in time at all. I bought them at the expo and wore them for the race the next day. I can't say enough positive things about this shoe. My legs still feel good after the race. I'm ready to run some more! They look great too. I'm usually a 10, but bought a 10.5. Go and buy this shoe. Clifton 3 is my spirit animal.

                        First off, I've had fairly severe achilles pain for the last two years. Yes, I've done the exercises, tried keeping off it, etc... anyway, a few weeks ago I went into a running store to get my son new shoes and saw the Hoka Clifton 3s on the wall in all their cushiony glory. I tried them on and left the store a bit poorer, but holy smokes was I surprised. The back doesn't rub against my achilles and all the supportive cushioning has greatly reduced the pain, even more than I'd hoped. The pain had turned me from a runner into a jogger but now I'm back in running mode. After running nearly 40 years I can't imagine running in anything else anymore.

                          This shoe has been a God-send for me. I've suffered from stage 2 and 3 arthritis in my knee for years and have reverted to low-impact training over the past 4-5 years until I met this shoe this summer. I've been able to log road miles again in the Clifton 3 thanks to the perfectly placed padding and lightweight comfort of this shoe. This shoe absorbs street impact and I feel ZERO knee pain when running (making my post work-out recovery time shorter). Hoka - please keep making this shoe!!! I'm buying a back-up pair right now... #lifechanging

                            What can I say about the Clifton 3 that hasn't been said in numerous reviews, casual conversations, and social media mentions? A lot actually! I am not a professional athlete, or revered reviewer! No, I'm the average guy in his early 40s who tries to take care of his body! Like many, when I first saw Hoka's shoes I snickered and said to myself, "I'll never wear anything like that!" Oh, how I wish I hadn't waited three long years to finally try a pair! The Clayton was my first introduction to the wonderful world of "One One!" I marveled at the amazing cushion and support in a shoe that weighed less than 8 ounces (men's size 10.) A few miles later, the shoes I'd once snickered at, became the most beautiful shoe I'd ever seen! I couldn't stop at just one pair, so another trip to my local running store, and the Clifton 3 were added!

                            Finding a pair of shoes that fit comfortably, has enough cushion to protect my damaged back, and offers enough support to work with my body and not against, is a difficult challenge! I walk/hike 7 miles every day and have tried too many shoes to name looking for the perfect combination, to no avail! Always, around 100 miles or so, my right foot would feel as though I were walking on the side of my shoe. It was uncomfortable and made my favorite activity very challenging! This issue distracted me from enjoying the outdoors, walking with my faithful boxer, and taking in the scenery around me! I had come to the conclusion this was something I just had to endure – until, the salesperson at my local running store finally convinced me to try a pair of Hoka's!

                            Several weeks and a couple of hundred miles later, I feel like a new man! Out of the box, the Clifton is a good looking shoe – mine are orange and blue! The Clifton fit true to size, where the Clayton felt better a half size down. I've seen many complaints about the Clifton 2's toe box, but the changes Hoka made to the Clifton 3 are spot-on, as my toes have plenty of space! I have very high arches and with most other shoes have employed a lacing method of skipping holes above the top of my arch; however, the Clifton's shape and lace spacing are just fine as is. I have not experienced the normal tightness around the top of my foot past shoes have caused. The heel cup is the real difference in fit and feel! My heel feels locked into place without adjusting from a conventional lacing method for assistance. Hoka's claim of the "bucket seat" design is not just fancy marketing…that is the best way to describe how my feet feel when I put my Clifton's on!

                            With any shoe, however, my biggest concern is performance! I was worried that a shoe with this much cushion would feel boggy and heavy after a while, but this concern has been put to rest! The Clifton is a little heavier than the Clayton, but is still extremely light-weight! The shoe absorbs plenty of shock with each step, but is responsive enough not to slow me down. Understand that I am walking and not running, but the transfer of weight from heel to toe is smooth and easy with the Meta-Rocker design – I feel like I'm being rocked forward as I go! Additionally: I was worried that it would take time to get used to walking on a taller shoe; that standing on a sole this thick would make me feel unstable; however, nothing could be further from the truth! My foot sits in the shoe, not on the shoe. The Clifton, feels incredibly stable from the first step out of the box! My walking gait is not restricted at all – the shoe works with my body and helps me find my natural stride!

                            With many shoes there is a period of adjustment: a hot spot here, refigure the laces there, blisters – you get the picture. With the Clifton, I've had none of these issues! My feet get plenty of airflow and feel cool and comfortable throughout my workout. (I'm writing this review in August from Oklahoma, where daily heat indexes are well above 100!) I never let outside conditions keep me from getting my miles in and the Clifton has kept my feet very comfortable in this hot and humid environment! Finding anything negative to say about the Hoka Clifton 3 is proving to be a challenge – all in all, this is the best shoe I've ever worn! I applaud Hoka One One for listening to the consumer and delivering a superior product! I am a customer for life!!!

                            Whether you choose the Clifton 3 or not is up to you and what your needs are! Perhaps you need a hiking boot, such as the Tor Ultra (I hope to get a pair very soon;) or maybe a lightweight trainer like the Clayton or Tracer suits you better – I will say, do NOT let the appearance of Hoka's prevent you from trying them for yourself! After wearing a pair for just one day, I know you'll agree – Hoka makes beautiful shoes!!! #TimeToFly

                                    I am a Hoka fan and I own some of them (although in my country they are imported and too expensive). I bought the Clifton 2 in 2014 and I have enjoyed it a lot. But this Clifton is even better, confortable and light. And best of all there´s room for my toe! I hope they consider that for the next Clayton (altough light but the toe is forcing the upper side of the shoe)

                                    I have been battling leg injuries for the last two years of my running. All kinds of therapists worked on my problems and I spent a fortune for no real results. Then I switched to these shoes and my running is back to my favorite hobby. You can definitely tell the difference the extra cushioning makes and they are not any heavier than my old 'barefoot' shoes. They do not look great, but I am huge devoted fan to the Hoku Clifton now.

                                      I'm using this shoe to train for a 50k. I have an old ankle injury (cuboid fracture) and have tried maybe 100 pairs of shoes (no exaggeration), including other models of Hokas. I had the Clifton 2 and liked them, but these are a much better fit. I love the padded tongue and the additional width in the toe box. The cushioning, weight and support are just right. The heel holds my foot in place perfectly. This is the most comfortable shoe I've ever run in, and that's saying a lot - a whole lot.

                                        My only complaint is they don't come in wider widths. I pretty much can't wear them with the inserts. Otherwise my arthritis feet will swell. So I mainly use them when I am volunteering at a race or photographing a race. I would return them but they were given to me through a Holka sponsored event for free and were fine for a few days but then they started to mak my few swell because of the width. I'm sure this is because of the width affecting my arthritis. I ordered wide Bondie 4s in hopes of elevating the problem. Because I want to keep wearing Holka. Holka are great shoes. They just need to offer more shoes in wider widths!

                                        First off let me say out of every shoe I have ever wore which includes most major brand models this is by far the most cushioned shoe I have ever wore. I bought them because a friend of mine raved about them. I run up to 70 miles a week durability and cushion are exceptional. My only complaint is wish you guys made the shoe in wide widths that is the only reason it's four stars and not five

                                          I am just starting a new training schedule and I'm a little heavy. So, I needed a shoe that didn't kill my feet. So far, these have been the best I have ever tried. The cushion is amazing and the fit around my foot is almost perfect. I can't tell if it is just that I am not used to the way they fit or if the toe area is a little too tight. It isn't uncomfortable, just a little less room than I am accustomed to having. The overall quality of the shoe is excellent. Materials and feel seem durable. There is nothing to suggest they won't last awhile.

                                          I was hoping this update would bring back the original Clifton 1 that I quickly grew to love and wore out. Unfortunately, the "wider" toe box when compared to the Clifton 2 is still too narrow for my wide foot. I'm 5'6" and 125, and even my bony foot can't splay correctly in this toe box. In fact, I got blisters after a couple of runs, and I've never had blisters after several years of running and 8 marathons.

                                          The shoe's also much heavier than the original, so I feel like I'm plodding along. My time has slowed by about 30 seconds/mile. The one good thing is that the cushioning really does help protect my knees, but I can't run more than 10 miles in these because of how uncomfortable my feet get. Hoka really shouldn't have messed with a good thing.

                                              I have been running on Hoka's for years now and was a big fan of the original Clifton but both the redesigns have taken a shoe that I came to love and made it unusable for me. I have terrible blisters on the insides of both my feet from trying to break in my new Cliftons. I don't know if the inserts were changed but this is something new and after many years of training and racing in Hokas I need a new brand...

                                                  Comments about Mens Hoka One One Clifton 3 Running Shoe:

                                                  I have all versions of the Clifton, I had the orginal Vanquish and I have the Constant 2, and I can say without a doubt that this is the best Hoka shoe I have ever ran in. The Clifton 3 moves beyond the Clifton 1 (which by the way I still use, and it is an excellent shoe also). Minus the superb foot to pavement feedback delivered by the Clifton 1, the 3 has the nice cushioned response but it's more like running on a cloud as opposed to bouncing off pavement. Still, that's okay because it brings so much more to my run.

                                                  The Clifton 3 brings more support for ankles, with a soft and high heel counter. It's more rigid and wider outsole allows for proper forefoot alignment. As a result and just like the Constant 2, my foot sits strait in the shoe and my feet stay nice and planted in my stride. The first Clifton used a more pliable upper than 2 or 3. This upper allowed the shoe to break in well and was more forgiving, thus allowing the shoe to offer more toe splay and basically stay true to size, leading to its popularity.

                                                  The Clifton 2 has the opposite effect because the upper is much less forgiving. Yet the Clifton 3 is the best of both worlds. The upper is soft, flexible, and arguably the most attractive to date. Also the outsole and the forefoot areas are slightly wider to better accommodate wider feet. With the better overall build quality, soft upper, wider forefoot and outsole, and supper cushy ride, this makes for an excellent update to the Clifton line.

                                                    Comments about Mens Hoka One One Clifton 3 Running Shoe:

                                                    The Cliffton 3 provides the support and cushion I need travel up to 7 miles per day. They are very comfortable and light weight. I would highly recommend them to anyone wanting a great shoe.
