The HOKA Clifton Edge has arrived, and we’re impressed at JackRabbit at this exquisitely energetic shoe.
When HOKA ONE ONE debuted a decade ago with maximally cushioned running shoes, it started a foam revolution. One of the first HOKA models that made waves was the HOKA Clifton, which combined copious amounts of midsole cushioning in a super-light package that created an almost euphoric floating sensation in every stride.
While the updates to the original Clifton continue to provide runners with that joy, the new HOKA Clifton Edge is a soft, light and exquisitely energetic shoe that puts a springy sensation in every step.
This new forward-thinking style combines HOKA’s most responsive midsole and softest, lightest foam ever and its signature rocker-shaped outsole with a unique, extended heel geometry that results in a soft, gliding sensation at foot strike and lively feel as the foot rolls to the toe-off phase.
The HOKA Clifton Edge is an impossibly light and smooth shoe with a next-generation design that produces a smooth, resilient ride. A vertical pull tab for easy entry, a padded collar for ultimate comfort and a rubberized EVA outsole for a light, snappy ride round out this innovative new shoe.
