I purchased this shoe a little over a year ago, and with 300 miles logged in them so far, I thought I would do a long-term review. The Clifton 5 is a classic Hoka, with plenty of cushion but without all the weight. It has been an absolute workhorse for me and it has held up quite nicely. I use the shoe for pavement, as well as gravel, and light trail running all year round. And now that the Clifton 7s are out, this shoe has dropped in price, and in my opinion, it is still relevant today.
So if you are looking for a comfortable shoe to put down some long miles in, I would definitely consider checking out the Clifton 5s.
