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.

Great shoes

Love these shoes, very comfortable and supportive, sole cushioning is really good and they have a taller heel support which works really well for me. Highly recommend these shoes.
