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 service and an excellent shoe suggestion

I was very impressed by the time that was spent with me to find the correct fit and the explanation as to which shoe would be best. I wear orthotics and other stores don't seem to understand how important the fit is.

Hoka One

As a veteran, I’ve tried several brands of running shoes ASICS, Brooks, and Mizuno. Hoka One is by far the best running shoe I’ve had to date. It’s like running on clouds. Thanks for making the process easy to order and quick to ship!

Hoka Clifton still my favorite shoe but I prefer the previous one Clifton 7. I also always loved the very first one they have ever made. In Clifton 8 the band inside the shoe that hugs the foot pinched my skin, with thicker socks it solves the issue. Hoka is the only brand I can run with on roads so impossible to change them.

Great for long walks

Clifton 8 fits me very well (I have small rigid feet with bunions:(. The great cushion and room in the toe box agree with my “puppies” and are great support on my long walks.

You won't regret it!

This shoe is insanely perfect for a runner! The tilt it provides to help you push off and remain in a forward momentum is bar none. The designer of the shoe really considered athletes in its design and function. BUY IT NOW!
