This is nice on the downhill so runner’s can feel the toes are impacting the front of the shoes perfectly. So since the Clifton 7 release date, HOKA are having some impact on the running shoe market as well as in the track.HOKA Clifton 7 Review

When runners have high arch and looking for great joint support, this could be the running shoe as recommended by our researchers. When you’re a big guy and have to put heavy weight on your feet on each stride, you may choose this running shoes for the next track without wasting a second thought. We have noticed that several big guys have positive HOKA Clifton 7 review over Clifton 6 or Clifton 5 for consistent running in their reviews, though this one released recently.

On our other HOKA Clifton 7 review, we have found this HOKA running shoes as one of the best shoes for wide feet running, which is very much supportive for those who has wide feet. The rubber inserts on sole gives better grip to the wide feet runners.


Impressive no. of users(testers), around 90% agreed ‘true to size’ as we have found.


Durable rubber sole, resilient full length EVA midsole confirms better shoe life over other affordable running shoes. Durable rubber inserts on sole ensures longer run life of shoes. Still there curious minds who wants to know exactly the answer for the below question on durability, let us see.

How many miles do HOKA shoes last?

As mentioned in the top, ‘HOKA with reality’ is actually required by the runners from running shoes. And this shoe can have 1 hour per days run, which is weekly 30/40 miles based on speed & consistency. So when should you replace your running shoes? Or how long can HOKA shoes last?

In the event that you monitor the miles when you run in every HOKA pair, most excellent running kicks ought to be supplanted somewhere in the range of 400 and 500 miles to keep away from wounds because of shoes. So around five to a half year for somebody who runs 20 miles for each week, a running HOKA shoe should be supplanted. On the off chance that you got it already, at that point for any Clifton 7 the lifetime with 20/30/40 miles for every day can be effortlessly determined by you, if note the track.

Recall that number is a lot of lower for race-day shoes, which are really intended to be lighter and quicker not the toughness. Top running shoe brands like HOKA prescribe those spans to change dependent on when the materials begin to weaken. In some cases the signs aren’t effectively obvious on running shoes however essential to keep away from feet wounds because of terrible molded shoes.

So, if your old runners are spoiled up in miles after few months, it might be time to replace with other best HOKA running shoes like this which will last around 400/450 miles based on use.


You might think, are Hoka shoes worth the money? Normally good things are a bit pricey. So if you consider that issue, this shoe is a bit pricey one but definitely we recommend this one over many. If you are a big guy(or even a regular user), initially you may think 200 around could be a ridiculous one for wide running shoes, but after using you will find this is worthy enough as they are like walking on a foam pillow that you never tried before. And we will add, the extra cushioning Clifton 7 provides, will be great for your knees(even it’s not bad knees) and back as recommended by several users and we have found on our tests during the deep research.

The EVA midsole absorbs shock on strides and offer stability to the runners on trail. Foam Padded insole confirm best cushioning on run & amazing feet support.

Reason to Buy (Pros):

The open engineered mesh construction will always ensure the breathable ultimate comfort for the regular runners. Lightweight mesh gusset will prevent tongue migration. Reinforced eye-stays will provide increased durability and the new vertical pool tab will give easy entry on your big feet. This early stage Meta-Rocker with fabric sole surely offers a smooth ride for you on trail.

The extra cushion helps to cure chronic foot pain developed due to use of  narrow feet & high arches running shoes . And you can jog where you could not before. So you can easily guess this is a great help for plantar fasciitis as well, which is tested on several guys with fasciitis.


We found one recommendation from a Brooks guy. He’s happy with the greatness and the durability and the design of this Clifton 7, but mentioned that this is half size smaller than the Brooks. So in case you’re a Brooks guy you must keep that as a note while trying this.


In case you want to compare this with Ghost by Brooks, we will say this is much lighter. Even with the extra bit of cushion on them. You may be surprised and guess probably that they have compensated with less tread on the bottom but our research can assume that this will last around 400 miles tension free.

Final Talk: HOKA Clifton 7 review

So HOKA ONE ONE Clifton reviewed as a great shoe and there is a chance that you will repurchase it, which is greatly improved from previous versions. Our test finds on HOKA Clifton 7 review that it always ensures light feel soft cushioning for a smoother ride with a more comfortable fit than before. It includes embroider design that improves lock-down without extra weight. After using, you may find more sweet spot. Kindly let us know if any further queries. Happy 2021!
