Men's HOKA Clifton 8

Men's HOKA Clifton 8 in style NIMBUS CLOUD / BLANC DE BLANC


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.

This product has a newer version! Check out the Men's HOKA Clifton 9.

Watch: HOKA Clifton 8 Review

We didn’t think the fan-favorite Clifton could get any smoother. The new Clifton 8 packs supreme cushion in a lightweight package with plenty of pop to keep you feeling fresh late in your run.

Watch Ashley’s latest review below to learn why she thinks the Clifton 8 can take on the bulk of your training miles whether you’re running or walking.

What’s New

The HOKA Clifton 8 maintains a lot of what made the previous version special, but it has a few new features: An ultralight midsole creates and even softer ride than before, and an extended heel crash pad provides a smoother landing and transition.

Who It’s Best For

The Clifton 8 is perfect for a wide range of athletes. From new runners and marathoners to walkers and anyone who works long shifts of their feet, the Clifton is comfortable day in and day out.

Why You’ll Love It

The Clifton is well-known for its combination of big cushioning and minimal weight. The Clifton 8 is no exception. You get an ultralight feel with the protection of a cushy midsole.

I am now a fan of Hokas. Best shoe I have ever worn. I am on my fourth pair and I love them. I have some mild neuropathy in my feet and I can still walk 20-25 miles per week because they give me the cushion and support I need. And they look good too.

Hooks quality throughout. Miss the heel pulls. Intentionally ordered 1/2 dive larger due to foot injury. Overall a very comfortable shoe.

Went to Fleet Feet based on what my girlfriend said they have really good sneakers meant for your feet. Well little did I know I’d have a 3D model of my foot and ended up with some of the best sneakers I’ve ever worn!! Even tried different brands which were all great! But I’m definitely going back again when these shoes are done! Thank you! HOKA Clifton 8 for the win!!!!

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.

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

Gary W 1 year ago Verified Purchase

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!
