The Clifton Edge is the first-ever style extension of the best-selling Clifton franchise: the Clifton first launched in 2014 and the Clifton 7 is set to be launched soon. The Clifton family of shoes has become tremendously popular by occupying a best-of-both-worlds space between maximal cushion and minimal weight; they feature the cushion and unique ride characteristics for which HOKA’s original maximal-cushion shoes are known, but in a lighter-weight and lower-profile package. As an entirely new extension of that franchise, the Clifton Edge is designed to make the Clifton silhouette even more accessible and enjoyable to an even broader audience of athletes at every level of fitness, and to empower them to feel like they can run forever.
Pushing the boundaries of what the Clifton is capable of, the new Clifton Edge drives innovation further with a brand-new foam and cutting-edge geometries. Building on the ultra-light, incredibly soft ride experience, the Edge affords an effortlessly smooth heel strike with an extended heel. Debuting an extremely resilient foam that’s lighter than any proprietary HOKA foam to-date, the Clifton Edge is finished with a uniquely flared outsole that cradles the foot and creates a supportive base. Go ahead, live life on the edge.
The Clifton Edge is available at hokaoneone.co.nz and at select retailers on July 1, 2020.
