    Comments about Mens Hoka One One Clifton Running Shoe:

    Fifth pair of Hokas I've owned. 2x Stinsons, 2x Bondis, and these. They make me want to run whenever I strap them on (they have regular laces, which is a very minor detractor for me). I am using them for road races and on speed days. The rest of the time I wear my Stinsons for training. The Stinsons are excellent, but the Cliftons are exceptional. I feel and run faster in them. They are so light, yet well cushioned like the other Hokas. The last shoe I had that felt anything like these were Nike Elites in the late '70s, but I was in my early 20s then and a tad less concerned about knee and joint pain. Plus, they are cheaper than the other models. A relative term for sure when discussing Hokas but true nonetheless. Love 'em!!

    Clifrton does not disappoint

    By GOATZ runner

    from Omaha, Nebraska

    Pros

    • Great Upper Fit
    • Large Toe Box
    • Steady Control
    • Superior Cushioning

    Cons

    • Durability We Shall See

    Best Uses

    • Fantastic Long Run Shoe
    • Great Trainer

    Comments about Mens Hoka One One Clifton Running Shoe:

    Read a lot about the Clifton. Did my research. Tried them out in the store. Thought about it for a week until I pulled the trigger and bought them.

    First test? A 16 miler that included some hilly single track trails and some rolling countryside on crushed limestone.

    The Clifton crushed it.

    Right out the box, these shoes performed admirably. Handled the trails with ease. Provided great cushioning and support on the limestone trails as I put them through their paces. Very pleased with the bounce and roll forward motion with these shoes. Very light and breathable uppers and a great looking shoe that does not "look" as heavy as some of the other Hoka models.

    I was cruising at a pace that was 20-40 seconds a mile faster than I normally would go for a 16 miler on my other name brand trainers. Noticable difference in the lack of leg fatigue with the Clifton at the end of the run as opposed to my other nice high end trainers.

    The only question I have is the durability and wear of this new EVA foam and the strength of the very thin uppers. Time will tell, but this is one ultrarunner who was very impressed with the first of many long runs in my Cliftons!

    You can run as much as you want!

    By Jeff B

    from Culver City, CA

    Comments about Mens Hoka One One Clifton Running Shoe:

    I've never written a review for anything online. The Cliftons are so remarkable that they prompted me to finally change that.

    I am 43 and picked up running just over a year ago. I've become addicted to it, run three races, and really enjoy the competition (in my age group). I can't imagine life now without running.

    If you would have asked me three months ago, I would have said I was pretty invincible. Joints felt good, muscles good... Alas, it was right around the 800 mile mark (in about 1 year) that I started to experience much more serious wear-and-tear and I was starting to worry that a serious injury was just around the corner. I trimmed back my milage, concentrated on form, giving myself more time (than I want) between longer runs. Finally, I decided to head to the local running shop to think about a new pair of shoes.

    I've been sort of in the 'neural ride' space. I tried on a bunch of these and then thought why not throw on the Cliftons (saw them in RW). Took them for a spin and I knew within about 10 steps that I would be taking them home.

    I've put about 30 miles on the shoes now. They feel just as fast as any shoe I have worn and they really are exceptionally light. The most important thing though is that all of my aches have evaporated. I'm now running pain free. I'm still being cautious about increasing my weekly milage. But I now have hope that I can run as much as I want when I want.

    Thank you ! This shoe is really amazing.

      Comments about Mens Hoka One One Clifton Running Shoe:

      I've been waiting for this shoe for 7 months now! So far it has lived up to the hype. Out of the box I took it on a 15 miler with 4x 700ft hill repeats and they flew! Wore them in a 50k that next weekend on the dirt and they were awesome! The next week a 12 mile tempo run, this week 200's on the track. I friggin love this shoe! I have about 90 miles on them right now so not sure how they'll hold up but they are my go to racing shoe for anything from 5k-50 miles. Probably even be a great 100 mile shoe as long as there's no mud. I don't think they'd be great in mud

      Awesome shoes

      By Running Trunk Monkeys

      from Texas

      Comments about Mens Hoka One One Clifton Running Shoe:

      I went to the store to buy known name brands for my upcoming training. At the store, I shared my concern of wanting shoes that will help me minimize the impact on my knees due to being a big guy. (6'4" - 225lbs) and having my knees always taking the brunt of the run.

      After trying 11 different pairs, They introduced me to the Hoka's Cliftons. I told them they look orthopedic with the huge sole, but after just putting them on, and jogging a few steps, I could feel the difference.

      Long story short, I purchased them, still skeptical about wearing them, but willing to give them a try. I decided to go for 1 1\2 mile run to test them. Surprisingly on my first try, I finished the run 1 minute and 45 seconds faster than my last run. I could not believe it, lucky for me I have an app that tracks my jogging, and indeed I was 1:45 faster than my last mile and a half.

      In conclusion, they are not the most appealing shoes out there, but it felt like running on clouds. I felt like Flash Gordon and there wasn't any significant pain on my knees throughout the entire run. Good job Hoka.

      Comments about Mens Hoka One One Clifton Running Shoe:

      Great shoe but I am trying to take it to a shoe repair shop to have them add another eyelet at the top of the shoe so I can tighten it around the ankle to avoid my heel slipping a little bit. Other than that they are very nice.

      Every other HOKA I own ( Stinson, Huaka, ATR ) has another eyelet, not sure why they left it off of this one.

        from Santa Cruz CA

        Comments about Mens Hoka One One Clifton Running Shoe:

        Ive only had 5 runs in these shoes so I can't comment on durability yet but...what a happy surprise! These shoes are lighter than anything Ive run in as a daily trainer. They have my moms old oldsmobile's suspension (soft, soft, soft). As an older runner they inspire me to go a little further without concern for my back, hips and knees. I highly recommend these to anyone who is looking for a cushioned shoe.

          I've been running in the Clifton since it launched and I have to agree with others on how awesome these are! Fast enough for race day and cushioned enough for training & recovery. Extremely comfortable, incredibly lightweight and easily the best looking Hoka to date. It might be the best pair I've ever run in.

            Comments about Mens Hoka One One Clifton Running Shoe:

            Two weeks from my second Ironman I was having a meltdown trying to decide what shoes to wear for the race. I had it narrowed down to the Hoka Conquest and a shoe from a different retailer. I finally chose the Conquest because while heavier than the other choice it would save the feet a little after the 112 mile bike. When visiting Ironman Village I came across the Hoka oneone booth and the salesman convinced me to try on the Cliftons. I was immediately sold. I bought a pair and wore them on raceday Sunday without wearing them prior. Feet felt great, no major blisters, and my legs felt fresh (as fresh as possible considering I was racing an Ironman). I would highly recommend this shoe and will keep it in my triarsenal for years to come.

            • 5k To Ultra Marathon

            Comments about Mens Hoka One One Clifton Running Shoe:

            I normally run in Altra's - first time ever in Hoka's. Decided to try the Cliftons, #1) because I was impressed that they could be such a light shoe, even with all that cushioning, and #2) frankly, they look a lot better than other Hoka's. My first day in them: (I was a few weeks away from a marathon, so I) Ran 9+ miles to get to a 5K; ran the 5K (turned in a PR...gotta be the shoes, lol!); then, ran back home 9+ miles...so...after putting on 21.5mi on these in one day, here were my first impressions... LIGHTWEIGHT. I just "felt faster" in them...and my Garmin was telling me that as well. The upper feels great (thin, but not flimsy) & the cushioning is noticeable - soft, but not "squishy", and not "clunky" either. I've had this situation with my Altra Paradigms..."clunky". COMFORTABLE...MOSTLY. I know it was just one day, but after 3 different runs (tempo, 5K race, then a slower "long" run) my patella tendons didn't even hurt like they ended up doing in the Paradigms. Knees & legs felt great. BUT...these aren't as wide as the Paradigms & my (right) foot had a "hot spot" develop on the lateral side, near the pinky toe. Toebox not as wide, but still comfortable. Also, the nice, thin tongue does move around a bit, so I had to do some adjusting between runs. THEN, the marathon...I ran it in the Cliftons and I turned in a new marathon PR, beating my other one by over 7 minutes! (Again...gotta be the shoes!) So, OVERALL...I'm pleasantly surprised & very-well pleased with my first-ever pair of Hoka's. So looking forward to the Trail version coming out in '15 and I'll be using the Cliftons in my 50K coming up in October. GREAT JOB ON THESE, HOKA ONE ONE!!!

                My son and I received a pair of the Clifton's just before leaving for a race this weekend. Both of us competed an International Triathlon. This was a mountain race just outside the North Carolina Blue Ridge Parkway. I was very concerned going straight to race in a new shoe and spent the day prior to the race doing some easy miles sockless to assess the shoe. My son and I were both VERY impressed with the comfort and attention to detail in the "no sew speed frame construction". Neither of us experienced hot spots, blisters or chaffing for the 5k shakedown or 10 kilometers ran race day. The shoe was extremely light and responsive as if running in a Minimalist race day flat but without the harsh ground contact. Hoka really nailed this one!

                Comments about Mens Hoka One One Clifton Running Shoe:

                I am on my second pair of Hoka One One Clifton (1's). My first pair I purchased last year in training for my first full marathon. 431 miles later I've replaced them in preparation for my second 26.2. I recently tried on the Clifton 2's; however it felt a tad stiffer, heavier and firmer in the tongue and I liked the first version so I found a pair on clearance and picked them up.

                One caviat... The Clifton's are a tad narrow for me, I have wide feet. The first pair I trained for and ran 13.1 miles in a size 9 and Morton's Neuroma flared up! I've never experienced that prior. But I did love the extreme light weight and max cushioning so I did a little research and discovered by buying a half size larger (9.5) and with some alternate lacing you can yield a wider toe box. After doing that things were golden. I train approx 20-30 miles per week and they just work for me!

                Before the launch of the Hoka Challenger ATR's I've even taken the Clifton's on a few trails and they performed quite well and held up to the rugged demands of trail running.

                Prior to switching to Hoka's I've run in Saucony, Scott and Altra in that order. In each progression each brand and shoe offered something great for my feet and performance; however there was always some sort of compromise. As with the Clifton's I've had to move up a half size and change the traditional lacing pattern. A small compromise for a very comfortable, fast and lightweight durable marathon shoe. It has everything I need!

                    I am using this shoe for my marathon training. It is a very stable shoe with lots of cushion to get me through my long runs. Also my legs feel really good and strong the following day after a long run wearing these shoes. I still wear my more traditional shoes on non long running days and for speed work. and find the transition easy. I have become a Hoka fan and love love these shoes. I already have two pair in waiting for when these wear out.

                        So far, 75.25 miles in, and these are still as amazing as the day I took them out of the box. These hooves covers are breathtaking. I used to have occasional days where I wouldn't want to log miles, but since purchasing the Cliftons, I literally try to convince myself one more mile, forget what the marathon training program says, just one more mile! I've ran through Nikes, Saucony Guide 6s, Altra "The One", Altra Torins, but none come close to the comparison of the Clifton. If I could have a fleet of Cliftons for the rest of my running career, there wouldn't be a single tear shed from this guy. You have outdone yourself with the Clifton, Hoka. I thank you.

                        I was very hesitant to order my first pair of Cliftons in 2014. I normally wear Brooks Ghosts and the difference in appearance alone made me question them. With the 2014 Portland Marathon a couple months out I decided to pull the trigger and give them a try. My first long run in them sold me on this brand. I'm on my second pair of Cliftons (Original model) and plan on trying the newest version out at the Portland Marathon this year. If year of abuse have resulted in bad knees like mine, give these shoes a try.

                              On my 5th pair of Hokas and these are by far the best ....incredibly light and comfortable...just completed my 4 Marathon and got my PR and qualified for Boston in these bad boys....Great Shoe and I just ordered the new version. I had recurring plantars and knee issues in the past...these helped keep me injury free and no sign of plantars...High recommend.

                                Comments about Mens Hoka One One Clifton Running Shoe:

                                I just had the best run I've had in more than 9 months of trying various shoes! I find the Clifton has great comfort during heel strike, when its needed most, and good traction coming out of the gait cycle. This "ride" is a runner's dream as it's lightweight and comfortable with durability and traction too! Thanks HOKA!

                                  A light weight runner's flat with the incredible cushion needed to save wear on human body parts during runs of heroic distance.
