    The Clayton is the newest model in an already popular lineup from Hoka One One, which features lightweight but extremely oversized cushion shoes. The Clayton continues that tradition, but offers a soft and fast ride that is ideal for logging long, fast miles.

    To date, the Clayton is my favorite shoe from Hoka One One despite the blister thing.

  • 88 / 100 | Road Trail Run | | Level 5 expert

    The Hoka One One Clayton is a superb light trainer racer, one of the best I have run in the last few years.

    You get a heck of a whole lotta shoe for a mere 7.3oz (W7.5).

    While the Clayton provides a snug fit from the heel to the midfoot and slightly wider in the toe box, the shoe’s exterior profile is extremely wide to provide optimal lateral stability.

    …gives you a super responsive, yet cushy and comfortable ride. They managed to find a really good balance. So, for the days you want to pick up the speed, it tends to do very well. On the days you wanna do a longer run, maybe a more relaxed pace, it works well for that.

  • The Hoka One One Clayton features the brand’s innovative Pro2Lite midsole technology that delivers a responsive ride. It provides the necessary cushioning in the heel and forefoot area for a smoother heel-to-toe transition.
  • It also features the RMAT outsole that provides added cushioning and reliable traction while running on the road. It comes in a lightweight construction and helps runners experience a more responsive ride.

The size of the Clayton runs small. Runners must purchase a half size larger than the actual size. The midfoot delivers a snug fit and the heel area is a bit narrow. The forefoot is a bit wider, accommodating those with a slightly wider forefoot. Hoka One One is offering this shoe in standard widths.

The full ground contact platform of the shoe provides improved traction and a smoother heel-to-toe transition. It uses the full RMAT outsole material that delivers high rebound cushioning for a responsive ride and reliable traction while running on the road. For a similar experience, the Saucony Kinvara 10 is also a neutral shoe designed for competitive running.

The shoe uses the Pro2Lite +10 midsole cushioning that provides a softer cushioning in the heel area and a firmer cushioning in the forefoot for propulsion. It also comes with an Early Stage Meta-Rocker Geometry that is specifically designed to improve runners’ running mechanism for high performance.

The air mesh material comprises the upper of the Hoka One One Clayton. It delivers a lightweight and breathable coverage all throughout the run. The no-sew construction delivers a seamless interior for the foot, reducing the possibilities of irritation and blistering. Along with this is the no-sew TPU lattice that wraps the foot securely for a supportive fit. An enhanced fit is also experienced through the microfiber reinforced midfoot support.
