Video reviews and unboxing
- The Hoka One One Clifton 6 caters to those who enjoy daily running sessions and those who welcome a generous midsole unit that could deliver high-tier comfort for their activities. The foam that’s used for the cushioning system is touted to be softer in this iteration than the one used in the previous one, the Clifton 5. The raised arch and the heel bevel are designs that smoothen the gait cycle.
- The façade has been updated to be secure and form-accommodating. Extra space has been added to the forefoot section to permit the natural spreading capacity of the toes. An engineered mesh that has improved softness and stretchiness graces the silhouette while a mix of printed overlays and embroidery help with the quality of the fit.
The Hoka One One Clifton 6 was constructed to be true to size. Runners are welcome to get a pair using their usual choices of size. When it comes to width, the available variants are D – Medium and 2E – Wide for men, and B – Medium and D – Wide for women.
It is worth noting that getting a pleasant in-shoe experience would be more approachable if one tries on the shoe first or get ideas on the size and fit via consumer reviews.
The outsole unit of the Hoka One One Clifton 6 uses Hi-Abrasion Lightweight Rubber. This layer has been fashioned on the contact points of the platform, ensuring traction and protection against wear-and-tear.
Flex grooves allow the sole to bend in conjunction with the foot as it goes through the gait cycle. The toe-off phase is the part of the movement that benefits the most from this feature.
The Full Ground Contact design involves the rubber pad and the base of the midsole foam being able to touch the ground with ease. Such a configuration could potentially heighten traction and overall balance over the ground.
The primary cushioning unit of the Hoka One One Clifton 6 is made of Full Compression EVA. This feature has a generous thickness which allows the foot to experience a plush yet reactive ride. Though its stack height is noticeable, the weight isn’t as hefty.
The Early Stage Meta-Rocker is a rocker shape that facilitates a smooth heel-to-toe transition. This structure is a staple in many of Hoka’s options, including the well-known Hoka One One Bondi line.
The Moderate Heel Bevel involves a slanted rear portion that allows the heel to rest and stay steady. It works with the upper unit to keep the foot in a locked-in position, thus staving off in-shoe wobbling.
The upper unit uses the engineered mesh. This textile has a soft and stretchy construction to wrap the foot in a sock-like manner. There are ventilation holes on its surface to welcome air into the foot-chamber.
Printed overlays grace the toe box, the instep, and the heel. These synthetic prints are meant to bolster the durability of the exterior fabrics while also helping with the security of the foot.
The sides of the silhouette have embroidery on them. These stitch-reinforcements buttress the structural integrity of the upper unit while also allowing for a well-defined in-shoe hug. They fundamentally act as overlays, but they weigh significantly less than prints or extra layers.
The padded collar and tongue are tasked with holding the foot in place and preventing it from quivering during the run. These parts of the upper also cushion the heel, the ankles, and the bridge of the foot from impact shock during the landing phase of the gait cycle.
A pull tab is stitched onto the back of the collar. This fabric loop is helpful when it comes to widening the opening of the inner compartment and facilitating the foot into the shoe. It can also be used as a strap for stowing the shoe on a hook.
