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.

Hoka for my daily walks

I bought my second pair to keep at work for my lunchtime unwind walks! I love how soft and comfy these are as well as sturdy and stable! My feet are having to get use to proper shoes but these are worth it! I’m sold on Hoka!

Very comfy for any distance run

These shoes are extremely comfortable. Their cushioned ride is definitely a plus on my runs! Plus, the cheery color perks me up and makes me smile.

Excellent in Wide

This is my 2nd pair. The only change was the color (1st color sold out). I love them. I have a wide foot and these feel great. Also, the foot bed feels great. There's no pinching or stiffness in there by the arches so no discomfort. The cushion is great. I'm a plus sized runner and I felt supported through training for and completing a half in these. Love them so much I bought the 2nd pair.

I can walk for miles

This is my third pair. Works great for walking even with injury to my sesamoid bone. Only complaint is how quickly I need to replace to uphold the integrity of the support.
