CUSTOMER RATINGS & REVIEWS
- Clifton Edge
- heel cushion
My first impression of this shoe was, what is Hoka thinking?? However, having tried the Edge out for both running and walking I get where they're coming from. I am a dedicated Clifton wearer, and the Edge feels more like some of the brand's "Fly" line - a little more firm under the forefoot, a little less rocker. It also seemed to fit a little closer around the midfoot but looking further I noticed that the new Clifton 7 has a similar fit (both slightly more snug than the Clifton 6). So, what about the heel? When running on level terrain, it's not particularly noticeable and the shoe feels similar underfoot to the Hoka Mach or even Elevon. However when walking, especially when walking downhill, the extra heel cushion is very welcome and enjoyable. It's cushy, and stabilizing, and those benefits are even more noticeable when running fast downhill. So if you are primarily walking or running on terrain that includes steep downhills, give the Clifton Edge a try!
Worn the Clifton Edge a few times now and I really like how smooth the ride is. Other Hokas I like have been the Mach and the Rincon. This lines up with their style of cushioning, a little 'firm' with out being too-squishy for me. My legs were worn out from the day before and these definitely helped on my recovery run. Mayvbe runs a half size long.
