Hoka One One Unveils A Cutting-Edge Low-Profile Running Sneaker

Jun 18, 2020

Category: Gear

Hoka One One enamored the running world when it released its TenNine sneaker — a downhill-inspired trail running shoe that can only be described as “outlandish.” Despite its abnormal aesthetic, the shoe tore down hard-set boundaries for sneaker design, proving to the world that function was, at times, more important than fashion. Now, the brand has revealed a pared-down iteration dubbed the Clifton Edge.

The newly-announced Clifton Edge still boasts all of the company’s cutting edge technologies, design principles, and innovations, albeit, with a much more accessible silhouette. It’s still a running shoe, first and foremost, calling upon a combination of responsive cushioning, lightweight materials, and a revised heel geometry, helping to reduce the effects of impact and keep you going strong for miles upon miles. Each variant takes on an embossed TPU yarn finish for targeted support, a padded collar, and an Early-stage Meta-Rocker, allowing for the transition of power from heel to toe. If you were a fan of the TenNine’s innovative architecture, but have been looking for something a bit more “low profile,” the Clifton Edge is available now via Hoka’s website for $160.

Purchase: $160
