I became a big fan of the original Cliftons since the first time I ran in them. They were a perfect shoe for me. I run about 20-25 miles per week. My biggest challenge is finding a shoe with a toe box that isn't too narrow. The Clifton 1's were great because you couldn't even feel the upper, just the soft ride below your feet. Not sure why anyone felt a thicker tongue was a good idea. Just adds pressure on the top of the foot. Maybe designing for kick-ball? Don't know. But I need cushion below my feet, not pressure on top. The toe box on the Clifton 2 dug down onto the top of my toes creating instant blisters two miles into my first run with them. Huuuuuge bummer. Clifton 1's were perfect right from the get-go. I returned my Clifton 2's and bought several 1's. Enough to get me through a year or two of running, while hoping Hoka releases their original magical design once again.

Great shoe. A little heavier than original but I don't mind. I like the extra padding in the tongue. Zappos service is second to none.

Tried these out simply for the color. I have 3 other Hoka's in the Conquest model, which are very loud. OK, down to business. The fit is not quite as glove-like as the Conquest, and the heel is a little looser, which I fixed by using Lock Laces. The toe-box is wonderfully roomy, and overall, has a "softer" feel than the Conquest. I ordered my regular size, and they were fine with medium-weight socks. They also accommodate my plantar heel seats. I'm a walker and find them to be extremely comfortable. No break-in required.

I have metatarsalgia and wanted a shoe with extra cushion in the ball of foot area. I researched brands of shoes and also read reviews here on Zappos. I bought the Bondi 4 and putting them on, immediately felt off-balance, like I was going to either roll my ankle or fall forwards. They were definitely cushioned but they did not have the "pillow softness" that people have reported, the cushioning was more like an orthotic insert. I had the shoes for two weeks and noticed the paint on the side of the shoe had completely flaked off! I'd previously read here of other reviews of Hokas where people had complained of the same thing but guess I thought that it would not happen to me with the model that I chose - but it did. I was not interested in trying another model of Hokas; they are rather pricey for shoes where the paint is consistently flaking off their shoes. I returned the Hokas to Zappos for an exchange and I got a pair of Altras instead.

Extremely comfortable. I like the slight forward motion / rocker feeling. Definitely relieves pressure and fatigue off the hips and knees.

I'm still on the fence about these shoes. I've had foot pain for awhile and recently tore a tendon in my foot. I also have really high arches. First, I really love the cushioning in these shoes. They are excellent for cushioning for impact. The lack of arch support is a problem, and it didn't improve when I added both the Hoka insoles. For whatever reason my arches really bother me in these shoes. I'm so frustrated because I love the cushioning, but I'm just not sure they're going to work for me. I also notice that I have very little stability in them, and my ankles feel wobbly. I normally wear Asics Gel Nimbus, but I wish I combine the general comfort of the Asics with the cushioning of the Hoka. I'm going to keep trying to break them in, but so far I'm not thrilled.

This is a fantastic shoe for what it is meant for: pounding the pavement. Tons of cushioning, and very smooth. Almost feels like you are being propelled forward. Don't take it off-road though, on uneven ground I felt very unstable. Even on grass and on a heavily crowned shoulder I could feel my ankles and knees straining. Trails? Forget about it. However, if you want to put in long runs on even, flat pavement, I don't think you could do better.

My husband was reluctant to buy these. I have the Bandi 4 (my first pair of Hoka) and begged him to try out a pair. We both are new to this brand. He was so happy running yesterday in them. They are very supportive. Like me, he was complaining of heel and ankle issues when running. These fixed those issues for him first time out. He's very happy.

Put them on right out of the box and took off. Did two miles with out any weird pains or twinges unlike the shoes I had just taken off the day prior.

I have a big fat wide foot and loved the Clifton 1. So light I wore them in races and my feet weren't squeezed to go numb! Why not just make Clifton 2 narrow and keep selling the Clifton 1 as is. They were extremely popular. Can't find them anywhere except huge sizes. Why do shoe companies do this? Bring Clifton one back!

The shoe is very cushiony, just like I wanted. It protects the joints by minimizing the shock. These run on the narrow side,so if you have wide feet, try to get a custom fit. Looks like the onliine selection is just medium.

I have only worn them a couple of times, but they are much better than my last pair of Asics. I only wish the colors weren't so garish.

I bought the original Clifton in spring 2015. Call me unconvinced. I like to run about 3 miles on a mix of pavement and dirt; my 46-year old knees and hips and ample frame are happiest if I avoid running on consecutive days. I was hopeful that this shoe would help me "keep running," as the company's slogan goes. It felt "cushy" at first but I noticed immediately the difference from my Asics Gel Kayanos when I ran up the stairs at the end of the route: while a regular running shoe seems to "bounce" the energy of the foot strike back and propels me up the stairs, the Clifton felt like running in mud, with all the energy dissipated into the ground. I was working much harder to get up the stairs. But the main trouble is that after 10 or so outings, the "cushy" seems to be gone and after my last run I ended up with a hip so sore I have not run since. "Keep running," yeah right. Also, the Clifton 2 update might address this, but I was surprised by what you might call the minimalism, or the cheapness, of this shoe, given the price. Maybe it's about keeping the weight of the shoe down, but there's something that felt kind of let's pretend, dollhouse-y, about this shoe. Shoe laces that won't stay tied, mesh that lets so much dirt and dust in... I'm going back to Asics.

Best running shoe I've owned so far. I've been an endurance runner for almost 20 years. I have had plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendinitis, arthritis and bunions. These shoes allow me to run without pain. I use the green wide super feet insole for extra arch support and because of wide feet. I wear a 7.5 in dress shoes and an 8 in all of my running shoes. These fit perfect in the 8.

I just got my first pair of Hokas and the verdict is still out. I've used them on 3 runs approximately 18 miles and I think (I hope) my legs are still trying to adjust to them. I've run in Asics for the past 20 years and have had sciatic pain for the past year or so. My husband convinced me to try these. I can't say for sure that my pain is gone...lessened, maybe. But what I'm experiencing now is ankle discomfort. I have small ankles and I don't feel I'm getting the same support from the Hokas that I got from my Asics but again, it may be that I'm still adjusting to this shoe. My ankles feel tired after my run, like I've been running on the side of a hill even though I haven't. I'll have to keep running in these and hope my feet adjust to them and I end up loving them just as much as my husband loves his because they were too expensive not to.

While I don't particularly care for the color options on this show, I had tried on the Clifton 2 (they felt amazing) and was hoping these would provide a bit more support. They did, but as other reviewers have indicated the toe box felt very narrow. In fact, the entire shoe was pretty tight. Returning and headed for Newtons.

My knees can't handle the road anymore. I started using the regular hokas and love them, but I was concern about the sole's height and running on the trails (broken ankle). I bought the Hoka one one tor ultra hi wp and love the look. On the trail they performed great. I didn't noticed any significant weight increased and ankle support was excellent. Arch support was moderate. You can use thin or medium socks with these. I notice my foot getting a bit hot during the run but not enough to affect my comfort. Overall I am very pleased with my knee running boots.

Love this years model! I have a narrow foot so the original Clifton was a bit wide and I had to use fast laces and pull them all way tight. The Clifton 2 is just the right width! Also the padded tongue is awesome as it doesn't bunch up and rub like the original did. Just as light and comfortable as the original!

My fav Hoka yet, nice and wide with stable platform, asymmetrical lace up works great, very comfy no fuss lacing, plenty of cushioning.

I work on my feet 40 hours a week I am 65 with heel spurs. These sneakers are by far the best that I have ever worn. I now have happy feet because Nike Shox and New Balance that I depended on are made now cheaper and do not fit like they used to. There is no support in the heel and they slip. I now have pain free heels at night.

I am obsessed with these shoes! I have struggled with plantar fasciitis for a long time and these are great for recovery--lots of cushioning, super comfortable. They do run slightly smaller than other running shoes. For reference I am a 9 in street shoes, but generally run in 10s. I find the 9 1/2 in the Hokas works best.
