Clifton 7 OGEP
Hoka Clifton 7 Running Shoes
True to its award-winning heritage, the Clifton 7 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.
Engineered Mesh Upper
The Clifton 7 features a lightweight, open-engineered mesh upper that is airy and smooth. The upper is seamless on the outside for a sleek look and clean silhouette and only has a few seams on the inside. 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. One of the new features of the Clifton 7 is the flared heel collar. The flared shape keeps the collar off the Achilles to mitigate any rubbing or chafing, and also acts like a heel tab to easily remove the shoe. The heel cup employs an internal heel counter for a secure fit, and extra padding around the collar and in the tongue to boost comfort.
Full EVA Midsole
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 7, 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 7. 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. Choose the Clifton 7, for updated speed, cushion and comfort.
Who Are HOKA One One
Hoka One One is the brainchild of two gravity sports enthusiasts Jean-Luc Diard and Nicolas Mermoud. Both men have been adventuring for as long as they can remember, and their trail running experiences have taken them across the globe. Both Jean-Luc and Nicolas are committed to the values of freedom and enjoyment and feel that this is part of to the running experience whether running on the trail or in the city. With this in mind they started to look at the variables that affected the performance of different types of runners. They quickly came to an important conclusion; fatigue, impacts and muscle strains were challenges that runners of all stripes had to deal with every day. So Jean-Luc and Nicolas came up with a brilliant idea, why not design a shoe that would help to alleviate these problems - so that freedom and enjoyment could be guaranteed every time you go running! From that idea Hoka One One was born. The word Hoka is derived from the ancient Maori language and roughly translated to "now it is time to fly". That's just how it feels to run in a pair of Hoka One One shoes; with each and every step, your foot flies. Today's runners from around the world are learning about the benefits of Hoka One One, they have been used by marathon winners. 50 miles, 100 miles and even 2000+ miles ultra-runners as well as runners just like you or I, who want to enjoy running, perform at their peak and feel that important sense of freedom whilst maintaining top physical performance and protecting against shocks, jolts and injuries. So put your best foot forward, it's time to fly!
