Competitor Magazine Selects HOKA ONE ONE Clifton as Editor’s Pick


RICHMOND, Calif. (July 28, 2014)—The HOKA ONE ONE Clifton shoe has been honored with Competitor Magazine’s “Editor’s Pick – Best Ride” award in the Fall Running Shoe Review featured in the August 2014 issue.

"We really think the Clifton is a game-changing shoe because it combines lightweight cushioning with a design that encourages a natural ride," says Brian Metzler, Competitor's editor-in-chief. "Our wear-testers loved the Clifton because of its cushioning but also because it has a sublime, energetic ride. We also found it to be quite versatile too, capable of longer, slower marathon training runs as well as shorter, faster workouts and a variety of race distances."

The newly released Clifton offers HOKA’s signature cushioning and Meta-Rocker shape married to a lightweight but supportive upper for a total weight of just 7.7 ounces (men’s size 9). “The first remark about this shoe is that there’s no way it can be as light as it is. The second one is how fast and efficient it feels on the run,” reads the Competitor shoe review.

“We’re honored to be recognized by Competitor Magazine for this award,” said Jim Van Dine, President of HOKA ONE ONE. “The Clifton is the lightest shoe in our product line, and we’re delighted by the response we have had from retailers and consumers.”

The HOKA ONE ONE Huaka shoe was also highlighted in the Competitor Fall Running Shoe Review as, “a lightweight speed merchant with a highly cushioned midsole and an energetic ride.”

Both the Clifton and the Huaka are available at specialty running retailers and online at
