The Hoka OneOne Clayton 2 is the latest light but snappy trainer in this series, the first of which I really loved last year. To me it seems like a slightly slimmer version of the Clifton. This latest Clayton does not disappoint. It’s comfortable and light, and I feel like I can run and run in them. Great for short easy runs, speed and/or tempo run, and also hold up great for long runs.
The longest I’ve went in them so far is about 10, but I get the impression they can take it all and I certainly will once I’m in the mood for longer ones again. I even took them on some medium-difficulty trail and they held up well. I actually like these Clayton 2’s a lot more than the Clifton 4’s–I can’t pinpoint exactly what it is, but the overall feel is just a lot better to me.
Overall I love this shoe and I look forward to maximizing mileage in them. I will at least check in at this point for some final thoughts, however, this may be awhile, as I’m cycling through quite a few pairs of shoes right now.
