Running shoe Review-
HOKA ONE ONE CLIFTON
After buying a pair of Hoka One One Clifton around 3 weeks ago we at Runners Edge have found the next best shoe on the market!
HOKA One One are known for maximal cushioned running shoes so i thought i would give them a try.
The out of the box feel on my feet was truly amazing, this shoe is super light weighing at just 235g (uk9.5). The cushioning underfoot is nothing like i have worn before in over 35 years of running. Each foot seemed like it was nicely wrapped round by the midsole and upper of the shoe which felt nice and supportive. In other running shoes i wear i always feel like i sit on top of the shoe rather than in it. For the first run out in the Hoka One One Clifton i decided to go for it and run a moderate paced 10 mile run.
I was amazed.. i completed my run in just under 70mins which is the fastest i have ran for a long time! Even though the Clifton is super cushioned it is also ultra responsive when you put your toe down to speed up to a faster pace.
Since running in these shoes for 2 weeks straight on one of the days i put back on my trusted NB running shoes and the difference was huge. The NB just seemed so firm compared to the Hoka!
If anyone is thinking about buying a new pair of running shoes fairly soon, please come in-store and just try on the HOKA One One Clifton and like me you will be very surprised.
