The upper of the shoe is made from a breathable mesh material to promote the ventilation for your feet on your run. There are a few tweaks from the predecessor, so the shoe is now even more comfortable to wear.
Overall, the Clifton 8 resembles the predecessor, the Clifton 7. The most significant change, however, is how the midsole material has become a bit more responsive. Irrespective of that, you still get the same comfortable feeling whenever you are running.
The midsole comprises the supporting and not least shock-absorbing EVA foam in the entire length of the shoe, which provides a very comfortable experience. Further, Hoka’s familiar Meta-Rocker technology helps to give the shoe a round sole shape to supplement the rolling-action of the foot and helps to propel you forward.
Further, Hoka’s Active Foot Frame means the shoe hugs around your foot to deliver brilliant support whenever you are running. This is because your heel and foot are located in the midsole of the shoe, rather than on top of it due to the design of the Active Foot Frame.
Around the outsole of the Clifton 8 is Hoka One One’s durable ”High-abrasion rubber”, which is a rubber material to deliver a fantastic grip and durability.
