Innovative performance matched, mile after mile The ninth generation of our award-winning Clifton collection is launched, lighter and more cushioned than ever. The new Clifton 9 is lighter while gaining 3 mm in thickness at the sole level. It offers the experience of unprecedented cushioning thanks to a new responsive foam and an improved outsole design. The clean rear upper is thoughtfully designed with a cushy heel, reflective overlay, and a contoured tongue featuring a medial gusset on one side. To allow runners to complete training sessions in all weathers, the essential Clifton is equipped with a layer of GORE-TEX Invisible Fit and grip nubs ready to face bad weather. HOKA's first ever weather-resistant road shoe, this splash-ready model features 360-degree reflectivity and a closed mesh construction for added protection. Built to shine, even in gloomy conditions, the Clifton 9 GORE-TEX proves that no weather condition is insurmountable.
