In the HOKA ONE ONE Clifton 2, 2014’s runaway shoe of the year just got better
Taupo, New Zealand (August 18, 2015) – With it’s super-light yet super-cushioned construction, the HOKA ONE ONE Clifton was 2014’s runaway shoe of the year, winning numerous magazine awards and taking running retail stores by storm. And now, its much-anticipated update has arrived, the Clifton 2.
For 2015, the award-winning Clifton receives an updated upper with a focus on lightweight comfort. A softer, lightly padded tongue provides increased protection across the foot, and structural overlays improve midfoot support and connectivity with the chassis under your foot. The industry-leading ride remains unchanged, and the road-focused outsole includes strategically placed rubber pods to improve durability. When all is said and done, one of our favorite shoes just got better.
Like its predecessor, this shoe is ideal for long to ultra-distance training runs and is quick enough to race from 10km and beyond. If you want a lightweight, maximally cushioned shoe for high-mileage training or long distance racing looking to the HOKA ONE ONE Clifton 2.
The HOKA ONE ONE Clifton 2, with a RRP of $229.95, is available online at www.hokaonone.co.nz and the following running specialty stores nationwide: Shoe Clinic – Wellington, Nelson, Riccarton & Invercargill | Shoe Science – Albany, Mt Eden, Newmarket & Takapuna | Podium Podiatry - Tauranga & Whakatane | Sportsworld – Whakatane | Outside Sports - Queenstown, Te Anau & Wanaka | The Frontrunner – Christchurch, Timaru, Dunedin & Queenstown

I’ve always believed that when leading a movement, you might just need to step out into the grey, with confidence, in order to inspire others. People are most likely to change their actions when they see others modelling the behaviours they are being asked to adopt; if I’m not up for doing something, then why should I expect others to be? This is the way I am approaching my new role as Executive Director of New Zealand’s national Te Araroa trail.
I am sure there are many people like me that require a goal, a challenge, something they work towards. We don’t need to let things out of our control change this! We just need to RESET. Nic Gill, AB"s strength & conditioning Coach, and HOKA ambassador, gives us his advice on how to keep going when your training and race plans are changed.
There’s tons of fitness articles and podcasts on the market explaining the benefits of cross-training; I am definitely one of those people that sing a variation of praises about it too. My name is Latoya Shauntay Snell — a multisport athlete, content creator and founder of food and fitness blog Running Fat Chef. I have been a Global Athlete Ambassador for HOKA since 2019. Since 2014 I’ve completed close to 200 running and obstacle course racing events, including 5 ultramarathons and around 25 marathons. An immense amount of credit goes towards incorporating cross training into my regimen.
