Hoka Men's Clifton 3
The HOKA ONE ONE Clifton has become a wildly popular shoe. This one model has done a lot to turn heads and change minds about maximal footwear. The Clifton combines HOKA’s signature oversize—yet startlingly light—midsole and a responsive, smooth ride. Sure, it’s soft, but elite HOKA athletes run blazingly fast workouts in the Clifton, too. New for 2016, the Clifton 3 has a slightly wider base for more inherent stability and a more accommodating forefoot (toe box) for those of us with wider flippers. The upper is now a seamless speed frame construction, giving the Clifton 3 a light, breathable feel and fewer potential hotspots for irritation, though that was hardly a problem with previous versions. The Clifton is best suited to a runner or walker with a neutral or underpronated gait who runs primarily on the roads, treadmill, or smooth, groomed trails. Time to fly! Weights: Men’s 8.6 oz; Women’s 7.4 oz. Heel-Toe Offset: 5 mm.
