    cushy!

    Pros

      Cons

      • Wear Out Fast

      Best Uses

      • Asphalt Runs

      I am a long distance runner for 36 years now. I took these out of the box to run a half marathon. I was worried about this, but the Clifton's were amazingly comfortable the entire way. Normally, I run both trail and asphalt during 7 to 8 miles training runs. I manage with them on the trails, but are the best on the streets. Very cushy! I have mild knee oa and a neuroma, but with these shoes, no pain. They do wear out quickly, but all Hoka's that I have tried do with high mileage running.

        • Long distance

        I've been running in Cliftons since the fall, and tried to go back to the Asics Nimbus (which was once the pinnacle of cushioning!). I simply can't see any drawback to running in these shoes. They have taken away my knee pain and Achilles pain, and allow me to run long distances without significant fatigue. These shoes are not a fad - they are the real deal!

          Best Uses

            I am probably one of the most injury prone runners in the world. I don't know why. I look like a runner but my body can not handle running. I had 4 metatarsal stress fractures within 2 1/2 years. Every time I would regularly start running again, I would have no warning...snap, a broken bone! I started searching online for the most cushioned shoes I could find. I came upon HOKA, made the purchase and I have been so happy! My last stress fracture was last June and I have been wearing HOKA shoes on my feet all day everyday since I started healing. I've been running regularly once again and everything is going well for a change! If you are injury prone you should definitely try these shoes! The only other shoes that compare cushion-wise are Brooks Transcend, and I have tried so many shoes by Asics and Brooks. Those are much heavier than the Hoka Clifton. In my opinion the Hoka Clifton is a great shoe and it can be a game changer for the injury prone runner! I will be running the Boston Marathon with these shoes on my feet!

            Best Uses

              These shoes were all they promised in terms of lightweight, stability and comfort. The fit was perfect which is a first for me. The only issue with these shoes is that the tongue is just one layer of fabric and now that I have some miles on them, it does not lie flat. It curls up and rubs on the top of my feet which is very irritating. These would be the perfect shoes if it was not for that

                    It's only been about 2 weeks, but my right foot arch and calf muscle cramping went away after 3 days (2 runs and a weight training class). I have been having this pain for 5 months with many attempts to fix it (other new shoes, 1 month off running, chiropractor, massage). So far, my foot is feeling better every day! I hope this continues.

                          Had to switch from Asics Nimbus 15 to this shoe and I'm glad I did. I've had plantar faciatis in my right foot for about a year. These shoes actually helped a lot. I have a very high arch and this shoe conforms to the shape of my foot. I'm not suffering anymore. I do have to really tie the shoes tight because the tongue is very thin.

                                I fully expected to return these. They look a little funny ( although my husband said they really don't look that clunky and they are certainly more streamlined than other homes!) and that thin little tongue just looked weird. Well what a pleasant surprise! I bought them because I'm doing my first marathon in 6 weeks and my right foot has been killing me i some of my older shoes. I know that my Kinvaras will not protect me at that distance. Well these will- I ran 16 miles today right out of the box- no breakin time needed. My foot didn't hurt at all-amazing and I'm definitely a Hoka believer now!

                                • Running

                                I've run 3 to 6 mile runs in them so far. They rebound really well. It feels like it springs you into your next step almost. Tons of great cushion. I've even done some trail running in them. It does feel a tiny bit different on the trail. At first I noticed the thickness of the soles on the uneven terrain, but I guess my brain/legs readjusted quickly because by the end of the 3.5 mile run, I didn't notice it anymore.

                                It could be my imagination, but I feel like my legs recovered more quickly from my runs, or maybe that my legs didn't fatigue as much in the first place.

                                Also, they don't look nearly as orthopedic as I'd anticipated. They look pretty normal, really.

                                The toebox is somewhat narrow as other reviewers have pointed out. I don't personally have a problem with it because I have VERY narrow feet, but I could see it bothering someone with wider feet. The rest of the shoe is cut normally, though. The shoes come with two sets of insoles so you can choose which ones you like, or double them up as they suggest for narrow/low-volume feet.

                                RRS recommends going up 1/2 size, but I found that I had to go down 1/2 size from normal. So when RRS recommends going up 1/2 size, I normally know to buy a size 9. But I needed a size 8.5 in these. I like to use SHOEFITR to get a true size. They compare the shoes you already have to the shoes you want and tell you how they'll fit. Every time I use it, it's correct. I don't know how they do it so accurately. Great tool!

                                  After getting fitted at RR Paramus (and learning I have the highest arches ever), I've been looking for shoes with a ton of arch support. The Cliftons did NOT disappoint. I was nervous about fit, since many purchasers said the toebox was smaller. I'm typically an 8.5, and I get a 9 in running shoes. The 9s fit perfectly. Plenty of room for my toes, and the foot itself is snug. I may replace the laces at some point- they're somewhat slim and loose. Still, I normally run a steady 11 m/m pace, and when I went out last week I sprinted off at a 9 without realizing it. Looking forward to loving these shoes for a long time.

                                        Bought this for running and I love them. I'm a female triathlete. Mostly Sprint & Olympic but planning my first 70.3 this season. I run half marathons for fun. I run randomly. Sometimes 2 miles, sometimes 5 or 10. Depends. (I didn't say I win any of the above events lol) I'm 41, not overweight, very muscular, inconsistent body mechanics depending on fatigue, so joint issues and injuries can arise if I'm not careful. Normal feet, no structural issues. Size 8, bought my size and it fit perfectly. Ironman friend told me these were "life changing" which I couldn't resist. I'm a total gear nerd. These are interesting. Not what I expected. Super light, nice cushion. Not too squishy. I could run on sidewalk for 13 miles in these with no problem. The cushion feels concentrated under metatarsal, ideal for a mid foot striker (which I am) but I tried heel striking and it was fine. In longer distances my form falls apart toward the end, I start off like a Giselle and finish like an Elephant. I was curious if that would be an issue. You get a subtle roll off from the mid foot with the slight rocker panel but it's not forced like the Newtons. Even better when barefoot. The toes spread out and have tons of room. From the heel it seems a little more work for the calves and ankles since you're not tipped forward like you would be in a high offset shoe but no biggie. If you have weak ankles and heel strike, you may need to build up in these. I typically choose a shoe with a 6-7mm offset depending on distance, because zero drop shoes make my toenails fall off and that's no bueno. These are just right. I was running in ON Cloud Surfers, which I thought were great. But I'm loving the Hoka Cliftons. Even if I do feel like a spaz in them. Or maybe I just look hardcore! lol Yeah. Let's go with that.

                                            I use the Hoka one Clifton for running on roads and trails.
                                            It's extremlly light weight. I used to have problems with the tendon on my left foot and with this shoe I no longer have problems. I love them I'll definitely buy a second pair. I'm in love with them!

                                              Loved them out of the box they felt perfect. However, they run about a size too large. My feet swell and I did not really want a smaller size. I added 2 liners into the shoe and that made them tunable . I did a 32 miler in them the day I stuffed them with extra support. I would like to try a size or half size down, just to compare. However, they got me through that distance so I will keep them!

                                                      I'm only giving this lower rating because I wish I had seen a few more critical reviews before I purchased this shoe so I wouldn't be so heartbroken that it wasn't right for me.

                                                      I have been wearing the Brooks Launch for three years and am totally loyal to that brand. I wear the Pure Flows for cross training and have had good luck with the Ghost as well. I was looking for a shoe like the Clifton that was lightweight but provided plenty of cushion to save the bottoms of my feet from becoming tender after longer runs. These shoes definitely provide that "running on clouds" feeling and I wish that were enough of a positive to outweigh the negatives because they truly feel fantastic.

                                                      After wearing these shoes for a few short 4-6 mile runs I have developed a WICKED case of plantar fasciitis. The shoes are the only variable I've changed in my running so I know they are the cause. Also, I can tell I have changed my gait/stride and am using my quads and groin more than my glutes and hamstrings, which isn't ideal.

                                                      The shoe also just feels floppy on my foot. I have a VERY narrow foot and I simply cannot tie the laces tight enough on these shoes to make them feel secure. Also, the ankle polls down my socks which is completely infuriating.

                                                      I kept trying to love these shoes because the cushioning truly feels FANTASTIC, but have decided I need to just go back to my tried and true Brooks.

Did 1/2 marathon and had considerable hip pain. Just suffice it to say, I got Hoka Clifton's, did several long training runs included a 10 miler. Ran a 10 mile race, walked away from it looking like I had just gone for a stroll. They are wonderful! I bought a second pair I loved them so much. Thought I was going to have to cut down on my running....no more!

                                                          I have had a lot of bilateral heel pain for years. Cortisone injections helped temporarily but I ended up having surgery that actually made it worse. Then I had the Extracorporal Shock Wave tx which helped tremendously. I still can't walk barefooted and need to wear extremely comfortable, supportive shoes. The Clifton and Hoka One One brand fill the bill. They are unbelievably the best shoe I have ever worn. I don't have heel pain anymore. Highly recommend these shoes.

                                                                They advise ordering a 1/2 size up. I went ahead and ordered my NORMAL size and when the shoes arrived I excitedly pulled them out of the box... whoa, these shoes run very very large. I normally wear a 10 in Brooks but have re-ordered these Hoka's a full size smaller. (9) I will say this; customer service was exceptional when I called to share my experience regarding the erroneous fitting advice recommended on the website. They were very apologetic and expedited me another pair.

I've been looking for shoes that give me some relief and finally found them in these Hokas. They are pretty lightweight and after about 2 miles I practically forgot I had them on...except that my feet actually felt energized and that's so abnormal for me anymore. I am really happy with this purchase.

Very cushioned, believe they may decrease injuries, or at least I am hoping they will... Last year I had plantar fasciitis and heel spurs which took me out for months. Definitely a different run, could feel it in my calves, but I am actually running faster in these! I ran 5 miles the first day I wore them. Big note: I wear 9 - 9.5 in shoes, in Newton or Brooks I wear 11, in Hoka I wear 10! So, follow the guidance and order 1/2 up and they should fit!

I didn't like the bulky moonboot look until now. The Clifton is less bulky and weighs no more than my Kinvaras. I tend to wear minimalist footwear but my feet taking a beating when doing down hill work. I plan to continue to train with the Cliftons on hills and use them for 3 road marathons, 3 days in a row. They are nice to wear in the winter, not because they are that warm but, they keep you up above the snow, no wet feet. Only complaint is a fit issue. The top of the shoe is too high for my anatomy and rubs the outside of my ankle. Bigger insoles have somewhat fixed this and I am still working on a good remedy because I otherwise love the shoes.

I have worn them for some 10-12 mile runs and am really pleased, overall. However, the toe box does run a bit narrow, and I have started to get some blistering on longer runs. There are a few other things I'm not crazy about. The laces are quite stiff, and it is hard to get a secure fit over the heel and the instep. The shoes lack the extra hole at the top if you want to lock in your heel. I love how lightweight these shoes are, but I am wondering how well they will hold up. They run long, so despite the narrow toe box you need to go down half a size at least. Despite all the criticisms I have of these shoes, I am running without pain right now for the first time in months so I am going to stick with them. I might need to cut some holes into the upper to accommodate my toes without blistering. Sad to have to do that to such relatively expensive shoes!

                                                                      Background: I'm a 43 year old, 20-25 mile per week runner...mix of road, trail, and treadmill. I was noticing joint pains in my knees, ankles, and hips towards the end of my 6-7 mile runs. In addition to the occasional ibuprofen, I thought I'd try some new shoes. I've had them for about a month. These shoes have virtually eliminated my joint pains.. presumably bc of the extreme cushiony soles. I did have to adjust my gait a bit: shorter stride and more mid-foot strike. I gave the shoe 4 stars for several reasons: shoe laces are slippery so I feel like they loosen up during a run; while downhill running, the shoe feels less stable probably also bc of my 'new' mid-foot strike; shoe is not great on trails or uneven terrain also bc it feels less stable.
                                                                      Overall, these are working great for me. My joints are happy, so I'm happy.
