1. They donít seem to alter my form much. My cadence seems to have stayed right around itís typical range. If anything, I actually feel like
I may be a bit more up on my forefoot when running in the Cliftons, and this is supported by the fact that most of my sole wear so far extends from the midfoot forward. Not sure if this is because of the rockered sole (the sole is slightly curved so that the forefoot and heel angle up a bit from the midfoot Ė you can see this
in the image above), or that the heel feels so soft that my body wants to avoid landing directly on it. The Clifton is a bit lower profile than some of the other Hoka models (stack height is 29
mm heel, 23mm forefoot), but I recall feeling similarly about my one run in an old pair of Mafates (a big, cushy Hoka). My money is on the sole rocker being the major factor here. Anyone else feel this way about Hokas with regard to foot strike?
I like them better on trails than on roads. This is counterintuitive to me as
I would expect a soft shoe to feel better on a harder surface, but Iíve generally enjoyed running on a trail surface in them more than running on asphalt or concrete
Stability has been fine except when I step on an edge. Again, the Cliftons donít have as much sole thickness as some other Hokas, but they donít feel like an unstable
shoe to me. That being said, there have been a few times when Iíve stepped on the edge of a sidewalk and rolled my ankle a bit Ė the wide sole base and resulting long lever arm relative
to the ankle probably plays a role here. On a trail they pretty much seem to conform to irregular ground debris by squishing over whatever I step on. You donít feel much underfoot due to the soft, deformable sole.
The ankle collar feels a bit high. Iíve heard others say this about some Hoka models, and I think what my be
happening is as the foot sinks into the soft midsole it causes a sensation of the ankle collar being higher than in other shoes.
Hereís my biggest observation Ė when I run roads in the Cliftons I feel like Iím working a lot harder than I should be at my easy pace. I think this is where the fact that I tend to be adapted to more
minimal footwear comes into play, as I felt the same way about running in the Skechers GoRun Ultra (probably the most comparable shoe to the Clifton that I have used for more than a few
runs). The Cliftons feel really soft in the midfoot and heel, and this seems to take some of the pop out of my stride. Conversely, on one run when I picked up the pace a bit they felt better, perhaps because I was more up on the front of the shoe. Iím wondering if this would change if I gave them more time, but my body seems
to like firmer, more responsive footwear. The question for me is whether thatís because those are the shoes Iím used to, or if there is something inherent to my stride that makes me prefer a lower profile shoe. Iíd love to see a study look at oxygen consumption in runners with various footwear backgrounds in their typical shoes versus in a super soft shoe like the Clifton.
