The original Hoka Clifton was an instant favorite at solereview, scoring high marks for its unparalleled cushioning delivered in a lightweight package. The only drawback was its narrow forefoot fit, and that did not change with the Clifton 2 either.

With the Clifton 3, the issue of fit appears to be taken care of. While we haven’t personally tested the shoe yet, Hoka mentions that they have redesigned the forefoot fit, addressing perhaps the only issue runners had with the otherwise superlative Clifton.

The Clifton 3 retains the same midsole design, except that it has been widened under the forefoot for better transitions.


The forefoot widening makes perfect sense when you consider the upper fit change. There’s only so much that upper design can do with respect to fit, and sometimes the only sure way of increasing upper room is to widen the midsole base below it.

Here’s a video from Hoka One One which talks about the changes. You can read more details about the Hoka Clifton 3 here.
