Taupo, New Zealand (August 18, 2015) – With it’s super-light yet super-cushioned construction, the HOKA ONE ONE Clifton was 2014’s runaway shoe of the year, winning numerous magazine awards and taking running retail stores by storm. And now, its much-anticipated update has arrived, the Clifton 2.
For 2015, the award-winning Clifton receives an updated upper with a focus on lightweight comfort. A softer, lightly padded tongue provides increased protection across the foot, and structural overlays improve midfoot support and connectivity with the chassis under your foot. The industry-leading ride remains unchanged, and the road-focused outsole includes strategically placed rubber pods to improve durability. When all is said and done, one of our favorite shoes just got better.
Like its predecessor, this shoe is ideal for long to ultra-distance training runs and is quick enough to race from 10km and beyond. If you want a lightweight, maximally cushioned shoe for high-mileage training or long distance racing looking to the HOKA ONE ONE Clifton 2.
The HOKA ONE ONE Clifton 2, with a RRP of $229.95, is available online at www.hokaonone.co.nz and the following running specialty stores nationwide: Shoe Clinic – Wellington, Nelson, Riccarton & Invercargill | Shoe Science – Albany, Mt Eden, Newmarket & Takapuna | Podium Podiatry - Tauranga & Whakatane | Sportsworld – Whakatane | Outside Sports - Queenstown, Te Anau & Wanaka | The Frontrunner – Christchurch, Timaru, Dunedin & Queenstown
4 weeks post-IMNZ and 4 weeks prior to IMOZ I went from going very good to going very bad. In all honesty, I did not nail a single session for 3 weeks, but I always believed come race day I would be ok as long as I listened to my body...Ironman Australia Race Report by Mark Bowstead
