Hoka Clifton 9
The Hoka Clifton 9 is a neutral running shoe designed for both long-distance and everyday running. It is the ninth iteration of the Clifton series and features several improvements from its predecessor, the Clifton 8.
The upper of the Clifton 9 is made of a breathable mesh material that provides a snug fit while allowing your feet to stay cool and dry during runs. It also features a reinforced eyelet system that helps secure the laces and prevent slippage.
The midsole of the Clifton 9 is made of Hoka's signature EVA foam, which provides a plush and cushioned ride. The midsole has been updated with a slightly firmer feel compared to the Clifton 8, which provides better responsiveness and energy return. The shoe also features a Meta-Rocker technology that promotes a smooth and natural gait cycle.
The outsole of the Clifton 9 is made of durable rubber that provides excellent traction on a variety of surfaces. The outsole also features a beveled heel design that helps smooth out your foot strike and reduces the impact of each step.
Overall, the Hoka Clifton 9 is a comfortable and supportive running shoe that is ideal for runners looking for a cushioned ride with a slightly firmer feel for better responsiveness.
