Hoka Clifton 8
HOKA ONE ONE Clifton 8 Review - Running Northwest
Overall, the HOKA Clifton 8 stays true to the recipe, but we do worry a bit that the subtle tweak to the tongue padding might see a few folks gravitate to other models.

The Clifton is a great throw-on-and-go shoe and it is always a pretty easy recommendation

I felt like the newer model was lighter and less clunky. I liked how supportive the shoe was and that even though it had a narrow toe box it was still very roomy and comfortable
