Just read April's edition of Runners World. A good review of the Hoka Clifton trainer
" for a maximal shoe that looks so chunky it's a testament to the job Hoka has done on the fit that 2 testers made the same remark-wearing the shoes " felt like I was running in comfy socks", referring to the mix of cushioning and speed this shoe gives. The foot sits high off the ground(29mm at the heel and 24mm at the forefoot) but the overall drop of 5mm gives this a great blend of responsiveness and padding, and proved adept across a variety of distances "
" I felt like I was running in my socks and yet had the confidence to pick up my downhill speed, thanks to the support. I did some hard sessions and whether they were fast, long or steep the shoe came up tops "
I haven't been able to run further than 6m in any one run in my hoka cliftons- due to lack of fitness! However the 6miles has been really great and the shoes are definitely a good purchase for me. Runners World have nominated the shoe as "BEST RUNNERS DEBUT"
