The Hoka One One Clifton 5 Knit running shoes are uniquely designed to give runners a feeling as light, soft, and squishy as a marshmallow. These shoes are supremely cushioned without the extra weight so runners can reap the benefits of a full EVA midsole and the HOKA ONE ONE® signature cushioning while feeling fast and free. This new Knit edition swaps out the engineered mesh for a sock-like, knitted upper material that provides a lightweight, breathable support around the foot and a sleek, modern style. Upper: Knitted upper helps to balance breathability, support, and comfort while providing a sleek finish. The sock-like fit features a comfortable collar that lies flat against the heel to prevent irritation. Personalized, step-in comfort comes from the molded Ortholite® sockliner. Padded tongue and heel collar enhance comfort. Lace-up front offers an adjustable fit. Midsole: Early-Stage Meta-Rocker is designed to encourage a smoother ride and a faster transition to the forefoot. Full-length, molded EVA midsole enhances cushion. Removable insole. Flat-waisted geometry provides inherent stability. Outsole: Full Ground Contact design offers a more stable feel. Strategic hi-abrasion rubber zones provide lightweight durability.
