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.

Love Hokas

My third pair of Hoka Cliftons! With a history of plantar fasciitis and knee issues, these are the best shoes for me. Each new update seems to get better and better.

Best ever

This brand of sneaker was recommended by my podiatrist. I have been having some pain in ball of foot. These sneakers are the best. I am walking better and farther. Would get another pair in a heartbeat. Am getting my husband a pair for his birthday.

Toe Box Problem

They fitted me for a 10.5 Clifton 8, and I wish I'd asked to try size 11 as well (11 is my usual size). The Clifton 8 toe box is too narrow for my feet in the size they fitted me for. I enjoy the "walking on a cloud" effect, but I cannot do a long walk in these shoes without getting blisters between my toes.

They are the ONE

I’ve now been wearing the Cliftons for at least 10 years and they continue to impress.
