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.

My new Hoka experience

This is my first ever pair of Hokas. They are amazing, lots of room in front since I have relatively narrow feet. Amazing fit for my heels when I string through all the holes (loose before that). If you have worn fashionable boots and flats for years and are used to having cramped toes, this feels like a whole new world. The cushion is amazing and I feel like I’m walking on clouds. The bounce definitely helps you when you are running around indoors or outdoors. Definitely recommend, will get another pair when these wear out.

First Hokas, Huge Fan

This is my first pair of Hoka shoes. I wear an 8.5 in all other shoes, sometimes the wide width, and the 8.5 wide size is perfect. The heel is snug and my toes feel like they have plenty of room. I feel like I can really dig in with these shoes and would recommend this brand!

Cushioned run

These shoes provide a cushioned sole, exactly what I was looking for. The arch is higher than expected & a little stiff. It took a few runs to get used to.

Love, love, love, my Hokas!!

I'm not a runner, but I was getting ready to have knee replacement surgery and wanted a good pair of sneakers for walking and for physical therapy after the surgery. I tried on several different sneakers, but immediately fell in love with the Hoka One One Clifton 8 as soon as I put them on; they were like pillows on my feet!! The sneakers provide excellent support, fit like a glove, and are just so light and comfortable to wear, plus, every time I wear them, people compliment me on my sneakers. I love that my sneakers feel great, and look great too!! I also can't rave enough about how helpful, patient, and professional the folks at FleetFeet were in helping me to get fitted correctly and then providing options for the perfect shoe for me to wear. Shopping at FleetFeet was an outstanding experience, and my new Hoka One One's are an outstanding shoe!
