HOKA ONE ONE Clifton 8


The men's HOKA Clifton 8 delivers a smooth ride for miles and miles.

HOKA updated the popular Clifton with a new ultralight midsole foam that gives you a softer feel than ever before. Designers also extended the heel crash pad to create smoother landings and transitions.

A breathable engineered mesh upper keeps you comfortable when your run heats up, while the extended Achilles pull tab makes the Clifton easy to pull on and gives it subtle style.

Engineered with HOKA’s early stage Meta-Rocker for a snappy takeoff, the men's HOKA Clifton 8 will power you through.

Why did I wait so long?

I have been wearing Hoka for years but was still blown away by the difference made stepping into the latest Clifton. I wish I'd made this upgrade months ago. Highly recommend.

Plush Shoes

Great shoe if you are looking for a plush running shoe. I run, and I am on my feet at work for 10+ hours a day. They keep my feet happy and pain free.

FV Clifton 8-Blue

I bought this shoe in 2 different colors and do not regret it. Fit is perfect, comfort is amazing and colors are unique. Performance with this shoe is at the next level. It is why I had to buy 2 of them.
