Comments about Mens Hoka One One Clayton 2 Running Shoe:

I changed from the Clifton to the Clayton when they came out. I was very happy with the move and when I went to purchase my 4th pair my size was no longer available so I hesitantly decided to purchase the Clayton 2. I'm very pleased with how they fit and I'm relly relived to know they didn't mess up a good shoe with the new model. I've taken a year off from marathon training but about to get back at it. I've run several 5 mile maintenance runs and a few 10 milers with no issues. I'm looking forward to see how they handle on my longer training runs as I ramp up the mileage. I expect they will treat me as well as the earlier model.

Comments about Mens Hoka One One Clayton 2 Running Shoe:

Love the shoe from the look to the feel for the most part. The upper is really breathable and nice material which helped get my locked into the shoe. The cushion is there but not feeling like running on marshmallows. The arches are just a bit too supportive for my flat feet. My right foot was really sore after just 5 miles in these, left was ok. Had a little bit of heel slide with the left show and I do use a lace lock always since my heels are narrow. Overall, wanted to love these but I don't want sore feet.

Comments about Mens Hoka One One Clayton 2 Running Shoe:

This shoe has the potential to be great. Over short distances (< 10k), this shoe is quite cushioned, yet is great for faster paced workouts. Over any longer distances, blistering occurs along the medial ball of the foot. Not sure if it's an insole issue or if it's a design issue as the rubbing seems to occur where the external rubber starts to come up on the foot where the rubber begins to cradle the foot. My guess is that just widening the forefoot a mm or 2 would fix this.

Comments about Mens Hoka One One Clayton 2 Running Shoe:

I use the Clayton for anything from a 5K to marathon. Comfortable, good cushioning. The only downside to the update is added weight. They should be finding ways to reduce weight with the same or improved performance, not add weight.

    After couple of runs the shoe can trues to generate blisters, on the upper side. I think, this is a construction defective. The inside materials of the shoe generate eruption when running, wich have caused me a big rash.

    The new shoe has slightly more room than the origial claytons. I love the new feel. Other than the extra room its the same show for me. Same great cushioning and light on your feed. I hope the tread last longer than the original. Rubber feels about the same so maybe not.

    Hoka...we had a good run, but it's time to part ways

    By Dustin

    from undisclosed

    Verified Reviewer

    Comments about Mens Hoka One One Clayton 2 Running Shoe:

    I've been running in Hoka for several years now. I'm 36yoa, 5'-8" and about 150lbs. I log about 35-40 miles a week in the off season and I'm just gearing up for marathon training season. I'm hoping to BQ this year at Philly. I was a big fan of the Clifton, until the 3 came out. I tried the Clayton and had high hopes, but it didn't deliver. The plus is that it's a lightweight and fast shoe. Like most Hokas, they have a lot of cushion if you're a heel striker. The major downside for me is that they have a very weird feel in the arches, almost as if you're walking on the inside edge of the shoe. After only a couple runs, I started developing arch pain in both feet that I've never had before. I gave them the good college try and logged about 75-100 miles hoping it was just a break in issue. Needless to say, they are back in the box and heading to the Post Office today. Unfortunately, I think Hoka has lost me. I'm planning to go back to Brooks, which I ran in previously. Also, what is with the exceptionally long shoe laces Hoka?

    Comments about Mens Hoka One One Clayton 2 Running Shoe:

    This is the 2 ND pair of Clayton's I've had, 1's, now 2's. The 1's were great and longest mileage I've experienced with a running shoe.
    They had a couple hot spots and caused some blistering, but I just worked through them and accepted it as normal. The 2's started out with a blister on my right inside ball of my right foot, but were even more comfortable than the 1's. But after a few miles, my foot would be irritated. So I looked inside the right shoe and noticed the sock liner was curled up along the sides a little. I trimmed the right liner so it was flatter and it works great now! No blister and really, really comfortable shoes. I have less than 100 miles on them at this point. Ready to do a duathalon this weekend and hoping all goes well. Did a 1/2 with the 1's and they provided great feel and comfort.
    Road Runner suggested upping a 1/2 size and I'm really glad I followed their lead. It fits just right for me now with the liner adjustment. I didn't bother with the left since I wasn't experiencing any discomfort. Looking forward to getting 400+ miles on these like the 1's.

    Blisters where I never get blisters

    Comments about Mens Hoka One One Clayton 2 Running Shoe:

    I loved the original Claytons, but had the same blistering issue a lot of other runners had. When I heard that they addressed it and resolved it I was really looking forward to the second model. Unfortunately they were even worse. I got blisters and hot spots where I never had issues with any other shoes, and only after 4-6 miles. I had to return them.

    Be careful about fit- caused blisters

    By Philip

    from undisclosed

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about Mens Hoka One One Clayton 2 Running Shoe:

    I am an avid Hoka consumer, both trail and pavement, so this rating hurts. In the last 3.5 years, I have completed 28 marathons, 30 halfs and a number of shorter runs, most on Hoka's. I tried the Clayton 1's when they came out, as I wanted a lighter shoe for races. Although they felt fine in the store, when running the toe box was too narrow for my foot (I have a slightly wider fore-foot, and long toes), and I developed blisters both on my toe joints and arches (something that was unexpected). So I was excited when I read the Road Runner review on the Clayton 2, how the toe box had been redesigned and care had been taken to address the blister issues. I purchased a pair, tried them on and they fit like a glove. So I took them out for a 4 mile easy break in run. On that short run, I developed 2 blisters around my big toe joints, one of the top and one on the bottom. RR was great on handling the return, but be very careful to ensure the fit for anything other than "perfect feet."

    Comments about Mens Hoka One One Clayton 2 Running Shoe:

    I was excited about the styling of the shoe and was encouraged by both the item description and video that Hoka had finally solved the narrow front area sizing issue which forced a full size larger size purchase on my previous two pairs of the Clayton 1's. Fake news! I got the 10.5 (normally wear 10 in everything else), and went for a maiden 6 miler. Both feet were ripped by large blisters from seams on the laces bottom. I took the pair back and ordered size 11. That didn't work either. One and done.

      Comments about Mens Hoka One One Clayton 2 Running Shoe:

      I was skeptical about Hoka shoes, but now that I have experienced them myself, I am a fan. I was looking for a shoe that would deliver excellent shock absorption with a rebound effect that was light weight to use for fast pace workouts and races 1/2 M and below. I have had these for a week now and they did not disappoint. I waited for the Clayton 2's due to some of the comments on the original Clayton's. They are very comfortable and have used them in an 11 miler, track workout and tempo run. I sized up a 1/2 size like it was suggested and they fit perfect. Time will tell how well they hold up, but I intend to use them on fast paced days and races and alternate.

        Hoka got it right with this update. The weird arch and blistering overlays are gone. I have run in just about every Hoka model ever made and these are tied with the Clifton 1 as my favorites. The Clayton 2 does take some breaking in. They are very firm, which I have discovered is easier on my legs and knees. I did two 5 mile runs and then a 10 mile run and after my 10 mile run my legs felt great. If you ever ran in the Huakas (great shoes) these feel like a refined, better fitting update to that model.
