Hoka One One Clifton Edge Initial Review and Shoe Details: Radically Broad and Light. Fun to Run!

Article by Sam Winebaum

Hoka One One Clifton Edge ($160)

The Clifton Edge has a new broad midsole geometry reminding in less extreme form of the radical trailTenNine (RTR Review). It has an aggressive Early Stage Meta-Rocker, some welcome flex (for a Hoka) and a rear outrigger for stability, cushion and propulsion off the heel. 

The Edge is strikingly broad on the ground compared to "normal" shoes, and even other Hoka models. yet is very light. The men's size US8.5 sample weighs 241g / 8.5 oz so a US9 should weigh about 8.68 oz / 246 g as per the spec. The Clifton 6 in US 8.5 weighed 0.1 oz more on a narrower underfoot platform. The video review below compares the Edge's underfoot width to various other shoes.

Edge has the same 29mm heel / 24mm forefoot stack in the men’s as the regular Clifton with the women’s at 26mm / 21mm so1mm less front and back stack compared to the regular Clifton. Both are 5mm drop.

The Midsole (gray) is a new light weight high resiliency foam.

The Outsole (orange and pink), which also acts as part of the midsole, is a thick layer of rubberized EVA foam with a moderate heel bevel making up a wide inherently stable platform.  

Men’s and women’s colorways are exactly the same for the launch version. The women's version is shown below, all other pictures are the men's.

The Upper is an embossed TPU fiber.  The foot hold is super secure, especially at the rear of the shoe with plenty of toe box room and was true to size for both our men’s and women’s pairs.  The top of the tongue and rear have big reflective elements.

The Ride is inherently very stable due to the on the ground width and is especially stable on downhills due to the outrigger. It is very fluid and easy to transition especially at moderate paces due to the rocker and some flex, has plenty of softer yet resilient cushion and has a unique combination of spring (from the main midsole) and bounce (from the rubberized foam outsole). Fun to run!

In Conclusion I would say, and my wife Dominique who is also testing agrees, that the Clifton Edge is if you will a more "accessible" Clifton. While it has the same stack of cushion it is considerably broader on the ground, more stable particularly towards the rear, softer and bouncier/springier than recent Cliftons with a midsole feel more reminiscent of the Clifton 1 and Huaka than recent editions. Finally, it has a easier to activate rocker and toe off plus front flexibility and tops it it off with a flawless for us so far secure upper.

$160. Available July. Full Reviews of the Edge and Clifton 7 soon!

Hi, thanks for this early review ! One thing you didn’t mention - or maybe I missed it - is the insoles : I have to wear orthotics and the Rincon was clearly a miss for me, due to relative narrowness associated with this super-thin glued insole. Is the Edge back to a more traditional replaceable insole ??? Thanks !!!

Hello all my viewers After being in relationship with my husband for years, he broke up with me. I did everything within my reach to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so badly because of the love I had for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to my friend and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back , I had no choice than to try it. I messaged the spell caster, and he assured me there was no problem and that everything will be okay before three days. He cast the spell and surprisingly on the second day, my husband called me. I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that had happened, That He wanted me to return to him. He also said he loved me so much. I was so happy and went to him that was how we started living together happily again, Contact Dr rahim Today the great Spell caster that can help you with any relationship issues, [email protected] or whatsap +2347051758952 Interesting to know that Dr rahim also have solutions to problems like
