Hoka One One Clifton Edge

 

hoka one one clifton edgeHoka One One have introduced new foam and new shoe geometries in the latest CLIFTON EDGE running shoe, announced today. Their now-trademark extended heel is claimed to give the smoothest of heel strikes

Key product features include the maximum cushioning and minimal weight innovations.

I had never quite got around to trying Hoka until a recent pair of Hoka Rincons (thank you Barrie) which, although very well-cushioned, were still not as cushioned as I had hoped, nevertheless they seem to help me stave off injury and are quick enough to be a race shoe. The CLIFTON EDGE looks much more cushioned to me and probably worth a punt as a training shoe for those of you concerned about cushioning.

At £140, they’re not cheap but the prices of new running shoes seem to have gone crazy in recent years.

Agree about the price of shoes, at least here in the UK.
3-4 years ago I could pickup last season’s Brooks Adrenaline for £50, now £80 is more the norm.
I’ve been wanting to try Hoka but can’t quite swallow the £120 RRP.

Now Nike know they can sell out of the Vaporfly at £250 and the Alphafly at more, everyone will be looking to take as much as possible from the runner. We are in danger of falling into the Bike kit scenario, where they can just charge what they like, because the cycle crowd are happy to pay for perceived advantage.

If you’re looking at a Hoka with a ton of cushion, the Bondi 6 is the way to go. The Clifton line used to be their premiere super cushion shoe, but over the years they’ve gone more for a all-around shoe; like Nike and the Pegasus or the 880 from New Balance.

I only have two issues with Hoka (one is superficial), The forefoot design, and the Meta rocker. For my foot, Hoka is too narrow, particularly on the lateral side. While the Meta rocker is great for running, really wears my feet down in any other scenario (like walking or just using it causal).

Now, their recovery flip flops? I own two, they are amazing.
