The CLAYTON continues a HOKA ONE ONE tradition of revolutionizing lightweight cushioning, featuring PRO2LITE technology with a softer heel for cushioning and a firmer forefoot for propulsion. The Oversize Active Foot Frame provides surprising support, while the early stage Meta-Rocker ensures a smooth and nimble ride. The RMAT® outsole layer eliminates the excess weight of traditional rubber and finishes off the ride with a responsive edge.

It was the 1st time wearing Hoka's, and I enjoyed the fit of the shoe. Everything was good, except that the side of the shoe cut into my ankle. Only ran about 1 mile before I was bleeding on both ankles. Since I liked the overall fit, I decided to try the Clifton 3 instead, which fit perfectly. And no cut ankles.

I've been a fan of the Clifton since they first came out, and the Clayton is an upgrade over what had previously been my favorite racing shoe. The Clayton is both more cushioned and more stylish than the Clifton, and a very soft ride for your 5K or your marathon. The only minor drawback, as is mentioned in other reviews, is that at first there is a slight blister/hot spot issue. I noticed this on my first two or three runs in the Claytons, but I now have 30 or so miles on them and the problem seems to have gone away. So give them a chance, and don't panic about hot spots at first. These are great shoes.

    On July 2016 I bought a pair of Hoka One One and the main reason I bought them was because I have a total hip replacement and I had made my mind that I was going to walk, waddle, jog, and run the San Antonio Rock & Roll Half Marathon to raise money for South Texas Food Bank. Well to make this story short I did NOT walk and ran the 13.1 miles. Besides not walking the entire race it was raining from start of the race believe or not until the 12 mile the rain stop. The final analysis I wore the Hoka One One through puddles of water. I am 54 years old and have to be very careful with my training due to my hip and have a couple of goals for 2017. To those runners that are just starting I highly recommend a pair of Hoka One One and patience "One Day at Time, One Mile a Day".

        The Clayton is great! Ok, so some of the negative reviews scared me but I needed a lightweight, cushioned, fast shoe. Long list of common issues from over pronation to foot pains, etc. I've tried it all from custom inserts to motion control shoes so I wanted to give the Clayton a shot. The first 20 miles in the shoe needed some getting used to. I Tried different socks and dealing with some hot spots. The shoe finally broke in after 30 miles, try wearing them just to walk the dog and get used to them also. I now have over 60 miles on the shoe and they feel better and better each run. Bottom line, I look forward to my runs a lot more now without worrying about shoe issues. Thanks Hoka...

        I'm 47 years old, 6'3", 205 lbs. I've tried many Hokas and, though I do like the original Cliftons, Clifton 2s and 3s were much too narrow for my feet, causing chaffing, blisters, etc. Claytons are much roomier in the toebox and a lighter/faster shoe as well, making them my go to choice on the race day. For training, I am sticking with the original Challengers which are as roomy as Claytons but can go off-road and take more abuse.

        I run between 25 and 30 miles a week and run a couple of marathons and 50k trail runs every year. I wanted the Clayton for a distance road running shoe. I typically like firmer shoes and the RMAT midsole feels really good. The biggest problem I find is that the toebox is simply too shallow. I find my foot burning from the restrictive upper by the end of even a 4 mile run. I have pretty wide feet, so always purchase a men's shoe for distance running and even the men's is just too tight. Hopefully, you all will improve the upper to be a little more forgiving. I will still give the shoe a solid recommendation even though I will probably not be able to use it for long runs.

        I've loved my previous HOKAS and went for this lighter shoe based on another Marathoner & sales rep recommendation. there is probably nothing wrong with this shoe. It is beautifully light. It's actually really good looking too. However within 15 miles my lower back is killing me. I'll avoid lighter weight bottles in the future. I'm sure this is an excellent shoe however for somebody like me 56 avid runner for years I've been off my feet and off running for a week now.

        I started running later in life, only for the past 7 years. I've been running in Hoka shoes for 2 years and absolutely love them. This model is SUPER LIGHTWEIGHT, and has an awesome toe box (you should be able to "play piano" with your toes, and can with these). Highly recommended for anyone putting in high and/or hard running miles.
