Men's Shoes Neutral Running HOKA HOKA Clifton

HOKA 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.

WOW! Love these shoes. I ordered the mens 8 because I liked the color and there was no womens equivalent. I discovered Hoka last summer when my husband bought a pair, and promptly threw the rest of my walkers away. I love Hokas. I have several models, but Clifton fits best. My bad knees and back feel better immediately when I wear them. I like them best on sale, but they are the only shoe I'm willing to pay full price for.

Fleet Feet - Folsom

I was please with the variety of shoes suggested based on the scan of my feet and surprised to find the brand best suited for me of those option was not New Balance. I have never considered Hokas. I am please with them. My two disappointments were 1) The two pairs of shoes were not available in the colors at the store and had to be ordered online, 2) While I had mentioned I belonged to a running club (SacFIT), I was not afforded the club discount. I am a new member as of this season and perhaps the Folsom Fleet Feet was not participating but it would have been nice to make an informed decision on my options just the same. I will be more likely to shop in Sacramento in the future.

My Shoe Purchase Hoka Clifton 8

As a person who has had trouble finding the right shoes over the years, Tyler was such a big help in finding the right shoe. I did end up coming back and getting one size down from the original. His patience and knowledge were appreciated. Xionna was also very helpful as well, when I exchanged the original. I will do busyness with Fleet Feet in the future. Job well done!

Great Experience

The quality of service was exceptionally good. The store person was very patient and took plenty of time with me to ensure I felt comfortable with the shoes I bought. The feet scanning was really cool, informative, and helpful. The HOKA shoes are AWESOME! My first pair.
