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.

Awesome shoe, great fit!

I have terrible midfoot arthritis and this shoe gives all the support I need, while feeling like I’m walking on air. I can’t recommend these enough!

Extremely comfortable

This is my 6th pair of Hoka’s and I would buy nothing else. Wether for walking or running, the comfort and support is excellent. I already knew about the product, I just bought these for the great color!

Lane was the best and most knowledgeable person I have ever experienced. She was very patient and positive as my two kids reeked havoc in the store. Lane spent the time to help me find the perfect shoe in the perfect color and I couldn’t be happier.
