The HOKA ONE ONE Clifton is a highly cushioned, performance uptempo running shoe designed for a neutral or supinated foot motion.


Important Shipping Note: U.S. sales only.


With the HOKA ONE ONE Clifton, maximum cushioning no longer means maximum weight. Featuring a full length HIP CMEVA midsole, this Over Sized shoe keeps you separated from the ground without weighing you down. A rockered geometry encourages a quick toe-off, and a breathable mesh upper keeps your foot cool and comfortable. With a lightweight feel and a soft ride, you’re in for a cloudlike run.

Customer Reviews

Comments: I had total knee replacement over a year ago and was very hesitant to run again but heard about the HOKA shoe. I bought a pair and (tentatively)started jogging and felt awesome! I am now running 3 days a week and the cushioning is fantastic. Running with no pain thanks to HOKA!!!!

Comments: I don't know what voodoo was used to create this shoe. It has such strong cushioning, but is unbelievably lightweight. It's like running on clouds with my feet encased in air. I've found my sole mate.

Comments: Purchased these shoes today at a Running EXPO. Walked out in them and they feel amazing! A great color too. Looking forward to doing a long run in these. Will report back.

Comments: So, I am a shoe junkie and always looking for the "right one" I left the minimalist shoe for I just needed more cushion and decided to try it. I got the first Hoka's and they were to heavy, went to the Altra Paradigm and went though them. I then decided to give the Clifton's a try and I was not disappointed. I did for 4 miles out-the-box and then my long run of 10 miles again they did not fail me. I think I will buy them again when these give out. They are very light but my foot feels real good. I got rained on and they were still ok!! So they are worth it!

Comments: I NEVER write reviews on any products. I always feel let the people find out their own but I have to write a review on these shoes. First let me say that I have been running for 30 years. I have ran in all brands of shoes my last pairs were Mizuno's. I got turned on to these through my sister and I am glad I did. I love these shoes. I bought a pair of the Kailua Tarmac to try because they were on clearance here and I thought why not. I loved them but the right shoe rubs the outside of my right ankle to the point I am in tears. SO I bought the clifton's and I do not have that problem. I can run forever in these shoes and never fell like my legs are to tired to keep going. These will be my go to shoes for the Big Sur Marathon in April!!

Comments: The new Hoka Clifton's are awesome! My runs are smoother and not so tiring. These shoes are so comfortable and extremely light! I would recommend these to anyone! I have had short runs of 3 miles to 10 miles, these shoes have not rubbed blisters or made my feet hurt. Try them!

Comments: OMG! I love the new Hoka Clifton so much! Ran 4 miles in then the first day I received the shoes in the mail, then 18 miles the following day. I used it for speed work today and I was flying! I run about 40-60 miles a week depending on if I'm training for a marathon or ultra. They are incredibly light and great for racing any distance, and offer so much support for long distance running. I love them so much that I ordered myself 2 more pairs. They run about 1/2 size larger than regular running shoes, I ordered the same size as my Hoka Bondi and it fit perfectly and actually felt more stable and not as wide. This is by far the best hoka model I've tried or run in.
