          • Going for walks
          • Road running
          • Trail running

          I love the Hoka One One Clifton. Too bad I did not find it sooner. I am a heavy foot runner that suffers from bunions. Love my wave phopehcy II but toe gets pinched. The Hoka offers plenty of toe room. The cushion is amazing and absorbs impact of running downhill. My legs feel great!! There is surprisingly a lot of stability with all that cushion! Love this shoe! Recommend for any runner or walker. You will love the smooth, propelled, cushioned ride!

          • Jogging Walking

          I jog at least 30 minutes on the treadmill 5 to 6 days a week. I can go 45 minutes without tiring. I am 60 years old and just started jogging 4 years ago and received an injury 2 years ago (planters fasciitis). This shoe is very comfortable even without my orthotics.

          Am I even wearing shoes??

            • Running distance

            OK, I will start off by saying that, before this particular shoe came out, I *hated Hokas*. I mean abhorred them. I had tried on every model preceding this one and felt like I had bricks tied to my feet. I mean, I usally wear several pairs of shoes in rotation, which are the Saucony Triumph, Brooks Glycerin 10, Altra Paradigm, Scott AF 2.0 Trainer, and Altra Olympus -- for injury prevention (these shoes all weigh around 9oz, except the Scott AF Trainer which is 7.5oz). Up until this point I liked my Altra Paradigms for recovery runs. Hokas, in my opinion were probably used by the mob to drown enemies in the East River.

            However, when I heard about the Clifton, with its 6.5oz weight, I just had to give them a chance... and boy am I glad I did. So I bought a pair of these yesterday. I had to go 1/2 size down from my usual running shoe size. I wear 8.5 in Brooks, Asics, Saucony; size 9 in Altras. In the Clifton, I went with a size 8. In previous Hoka models, I had to size 1/2 size up. It seems the redesign/overhaul of this model changed the fit significantly, but just know that it runs a bit big. No big deal. I also had to lace them using the same method I lace my Altras to tighten the ankle (but I have really skinny ankles so that probably will not be an issue for most people). The biggest difference aside from the weight is the way the toe off feels in the Clifton compared to the previous Hoka models. The redesign of the rocker bottom made the toe off much faster and more effortless. Gone is the brick-like clompy feeling of Hokas past. There appears to be more cusion in the midfoot area and much less weight in the heel -- a welcome change for me, since I am a forefoot/midfoot striker.

            Today, in a rather brash and, probably unwise move, I decided to take them for a test run today .... a 10-mile test run (I am currently training for a marathon and I have a 60-mile/week plan I have to adhere to!). At first, I had to adjust my gait to get used to the heavier padding in the midfoot area, due to the new rocker bottom design, but that was easy to get used to. Well, let's just say, by mile 3, I literally forgot I was even wearing shoes, much less a brand spanking new pair of shoes (whose predecessors were totally underwhelming to put it mildly). My feet kept wanting to go faster and I was able to maintain a high cadence of 95-97spm (per foot -- so 190-194 for both feet) and actually had to reign myself in a bit because this was supposed to be a run at "easy" pace.

            I don't know if I need to say more, because, in my opinion, the best thing a shoe can accomplish is to convince you that you are not even wearing it, and these achieve that goal effortlessly. I flew through that 10-miler like it was a 5K and at the end, my legs and knees felt like I had just finished a leisurely stroll in the park. Nuff said.

            Altra's Paradigm better watch out because, there is a new sheriff in town, and his name is Clifton! I am considering making these my race day shoes.... we shall see!

                  I am so thankful I tried this shoe!! After running many years in Nike's, Saucony's and Asics' I had become disappointed in their lack of cushioning and durability. So far, the Clifton has provided much sought after cushioning and relief. I am anxious to see how long they hold up. I am a high mileage runner - 60 - 80/wk.

                        After hearing all the hype on Hoka I was excited to see the Clifton come out since it was so lightweight. I hate heavy shoes. They felt weird when I put them on but a good kind of weird! My first run in them was 4 miles. I felt like I was springing off the ground with every step. My time was faster than normal and it just felt like my legs wanted to move faster. The shoes are very comfortable and were an exact fit to my shoe size. I am hooked!

                          I am so happy I tried this shoe! I was wearing Mizuno for cushioning mainly, but the Hoka 11 tops it hands down. From the moment I slipped it on I thought FINALLY! A shoe that gives support, breathability, and looks! I love that the tongue is very thin and won't slip or rub the top of my foot.

                          I was encouraged to abandon my USUAL brand for an unknown shoe that promised cushiony support. I'm so glad I believed the hype. They have allowed me to run happily again on the cold, hard paths of our City.
