Hoka Clifton 7
The Clifton 7 Provides a Springy Ride on a Plush Midsole
“The Clifton 7 delivers both, though. It features thick midsole foam that is soft upon landing but springy on the toe-off.”

HOKA TECTON X REVIEW | The Ginger Runner
A couple of things: it's fun, it's weird and it's orange. The new tecton x from hoka is a unique trail offering from the brand that's become synonymous with cushioned soft and grippy trail shoes. The dual parallel carbon plates, a first for hocus trail line, are surprisingly forgiving and when combi...

Hoka Clifton 7
Did my research and decided to try on the Hoka Clifton 7. I heard they were a bit narrow so I decided to go 1/2 size up and gave them my first try yesterday. **Holy fuck guys. These shoes are mad comfy.**.

Hoka Clifton 7
Disliking the Hoka
I do love me some hokas, but there is a major issue with them. Because they are just a thicc slab of EVA foam, they tend to be very weather dependent. In the heat, I love my Clifton 7 for an easy recovery day shoe after workouts with their melty, marshmallowy texture. When it's more normal temp they are a good daily trainer with the consistency I like for the task, but when it's cold it just feels like a hard block of foam with not a lot of giving, with no ground contact feeling and I avoid using them because of it.

HOKA SPEEDGOAT 5 REVIEW | The Ginger Runner
I don't mind it in this shoe, but i'm getting super nitpicky on it and uh. It's not my favorite, but it doesn't totally turn me off, bringing us ultimately to our conclusion. If you like, the speed goat 4 you'll like the speedgoed 5

Hoka Clifton 7
To me, it just felt like something was a bit too tight, and wasn't that perfect fit I'd expect with spending $150 on shoes. Ultimately, I felt the widest part wasn't quite wide enough, and that I had almost no room in the toe-box, and wanted more. I did try on the 9's before going down to an 8.5, and felt the same concept of snug around the widest part, though I hadn't adjusted the laces. That said, I've read a ton about various shoes this last week, and have been pretty interested in the Clifton 6 / 7, with the 7 being enticing because of very minor changes, that apparently are in favor of my wants (wider toe box, widest part wider overall).
