The Hoka Clifton is undoubtedly one of our best-selling shoes. Everyone loves it for its plush, comfy and stable ride. Hoka is now back with the Clifton 9 and it’s a shoe you need to try. The Clifton 9 has been refreshed with a CMEVA midsole for a lighter and bouncier underfoot feeling. Hoka have also added an additional 3mm of stack for a new level of comfort and protection and have reduced the weight by stripping down the upper. The material is now lighter and has a more sporty feel to it.
The Clifton 9 still maintains the reliable and comfy fit we attribute to it but the upgrades now result in a more responsive and energetic underfoot feel. This makes this shoe perfect for sub-tempo daily training and longer runs. Hoka have added some extra space around the mid-foot and toe box to allow for extra toe splay. The Clifton 9 still features a snug hold around the midfoot for a secure and stable run.
The Durabrasion outsole rubber is grippy and durable. This ensures its suitability for a daily trainer, ready for lots of KM’s. The Clifton 9 also still features sidewalls for added structure and stability as well as it’s signature rockered midsole.
CMEVA foam creates a more responsive and lightweight ride.
New upper reduces weight and provides more space for toe splay in the forefoot.
Definitely an upgrade that improves the shoe but maintains the attributes of the Clifton that we know and love.
