HOKA ONE ONE Clifton 8


The women'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 women's HOKA Clifton 8 will power you through.

Great Shoes

I'm so pleased with these shoes. They're comfortable, supportive and light weight. This style has a lower profile at the ankle bone than the Bondi, which didn't work out for me because of that higher profile. I would have liked a little more cushioning similar to the Bondi, but that's why there are different styles and prices! Perhaps the most remarkable aspect is how light they are.

Hoka's...My "Magic Shoes"

Where do I begin?? I have suffered with foot pain for the past 8 years. I've had 3 surgeries and have bought every expensive shoe that was recommended to me. NONE of them worked! Then...I discovered Hoka's and my life has been changed. I'm not kidding! Pain can ware you down. I call Hoka's my "Magic Shoes" and have been spreading the word to anyone who will listen. I am walking 5k's and I can't tell you how much easier, and more enjoyable, it is when you aren't in pain. Hoka's are light weight, supportive and so comfortable. I truly could be a salesperson and would feel 100% legite with what I was telling the buyers. I bought 4 pairs without hesitation!! It's worth every penny!
