We wore out our last pairs of sneakers during long walks during the Pandemic, when our gym was closed for nearly a year. For back-to-workouts, we needed new gear.

So we tried turned to a favorite – Hoka One One. We settled on the Men’s Clifton 8 and the Women’s Clifton 8 – and each pair has performed to the max.

With a new midsole compound, the shoes offer one of the lightest, most energetic foams we have tried to date. Clifton 8 features a streamlined silhouette and updated upper made from engineered mesh. Best of all, they weigh less than half a pound.

We can go for long walks, moderate mountain hikes, gym workouts, you name it, in these sneakers.
