Overall, the Clifton 7 resembles the predecessor, Clifton 6, a lot; however, there is a noticeable difference on the new upper, as the tongue is now fixed to the shoe and has a higher heel cap, which helps to protect your Achilles tendon and makes the shoe easier to put on.
The upper of the shoe is also made from a breathable mesh material to help keep your feet ventilated on your run.
The shoe is made with the same midsole as the predecessor, Hoka One One Clifton 6.
As a result, it has a supporting and, not least, shock-absorbing EVA foam in the full-length of the midsole, which provides for a very pleasant run.
When it comes to Clifton’s outsole, there are two important qualities to know about.
Firstly, Hoka’s Meta-Rocker technology gives the shoe a rounded sole shape, which complements your foot strike and propels you forward.
Secondly, the Active Foot Frame helps to hug around your foot to deliver outstanding support when you are running. This is because the Active Foot Frame ensures your heel and foot are placed in the midsole rather than on top of it
