True to its award-winning heritage, the Clifton 6 is light, cushioned and very fast. Central to its design is the famed Hoka One One midsole geometry and a trusted foam package to ensure consistent cushioning throughout the life of the shoe.
The Clifton 6 features a more open engineered mesh construction with fewer overlays than previous versions to optimise breathability and comfort. The mesh wraps each foot in breathable comfort, allowing air to fully permeate the entire upper. Furthermore, this construction provides a constant supply of fresh, cool air while simultaneously forcing out hot, muggy air that resides within the shoes during intense activity.
Additionally, the upper offers reinforced eyelets for durability when tightening the laces. This construction allows you to get a personalised fit as well as prevents any in shoe slipping from occurring. When the laces are tightened the upper wraps around the top of the foot cradling it for additional comfort as well as providing a premium fit. Lastly, a padded collar and tongue enhance comfort even further by offering a nice step in and next to foot feel.
Early-stage Meta-Rocker geometry is applied in the midsole to increase running efficiency. Meta-Rocker midsole geometry is specifically designed with a low heel-toe differential and a sculpted outsole to create a unique fulcrum effect, like a rocking chair to encourage a guided gait cycle. This design supports a runner’s natural form while promoting an efficient, smooth roll from initial impact to toe off.
In the Clifton 6, the transition zone is placed behind the metatarsal heads; this helps create a smoother ride and a faster transition to the forefoot. A full-length platform of EVA resides underfoot for lightweight, responsive cushioning. Generous, soft and durable, it spares your joints as you strike down onto hard, unforgiving surfaces. A moderate heel bevel helps to promote a smooth heel-to-toe transition; it enhances ground contact and unites with flat-waisted geometry to stabilise and support every stride.
A grippy outsole with a full ground contact design completes the Clifton 6. Strategic hi-abrasion rubber zones adorn this; increasing the shoe’s durability, reducing its weight and employing an updated lug pattern to supply enhanced traction on every road surface.
