Hoka Clifton 6 Men
Big G Says…
Hoka One One is the fastest growing technical running shoe brand in the world and has a niche following in SA. Clifton is their most popular model. lf you have read my reviews of the Clifton 4 and Clifton 5, you will realise that no two Cliftons have been exactly the same. The Clifton 6 has also been tweaked.
It has a slightly re-designed mid-sole, outsole and upper but the overall formula has not changed the character of the shoe. So what are the changes? The toe box ls roomier both in terms of width and depth. The stack height has increased by 1mm but the heel/toe drop remains unchanged at 5mm. The mid-sole has a slightly softer full compression EVA foam compared to the 4 and working together with the normal rocker geometry provides a soft, smooth and responsive ride, The quality of the engineered mesh upper has been upgraded to be more durable and breathable incorporating some improvements in arch support. Another plus factor is a +/-10 gram drop in weight.
So the Clifton 6 will continue to enhance Hoka's reputation in the serious running shoe market. Clifton fans will appreciate the updates and if you have never tried a Hoka before, the Clifton 6 would be the go-to shoe to experience cushioning at a lightweight.
