Product Review: Hoka Clifton 9 Road Running Shoe.

Hoka Clifton 9 Road Running Shoes available at Run & Ride

The ninth iteration of the award-winning Hoka Clifton franchise has launched, lighter and more cushioned than ever before. It's a fantastic road running shoe that offers an impressive combination of comfort, durability, and performance.

Eliminating weight while adding 3mm in stack height, the new Clifton 9 delivers a revitalised underfoot experience with a responsive new foam and improved outsole design. Removing overlays and hotmelts, the stripped back upper has been consciously crafted with a plusher heel, reflective heel panel, and streamlined tongue with single side medial gusset.

It's impact absorption makes it an ideal shoe for long-distance runs, but it's still lightweight enough for faster workouts and races.

The upper of the Clifton 9 is made from a breathable mesh material that keeps your feet cool and comfortable, even on hot days. The upper also fits snugly without feeling constricting, which is great for runners who need a little extra support in their shoes.
