RICHMOND, Calif. (July 30, 2014) – HOKA ONE ONE, the fastest growing premium running shoe brand in the world and a division of Deckers Outdoor Corporation (NYSE: DECK), is pleased to announce that the new HOKA ONE ONE Clifton has been selected as a Runner’s World Editor’s Choice in the Fall Shoe Buyer’s Guide in the September 2014 issue.
The Runner’s World Editor’s Choice Award recognizes an outstanding shoe that successfully combines the highest-quality design and technology. The Clifton received the highest marks from the Runner’s World Shoe Lab, magazine wear-testers and the editors.
“The Clifton was the big surprise among this season's new models,” said Runner’s World Senior Editor, Jeff Dengate. “It's impossibly lightweight, even though it looks like it should be heavy, and it offers an amazing level of protection underfoot.”
The HOKA ONE ONE Clifton offers extreme cushioning in a lightweight package that weighs just 7.7 ounces (men’s size 9). HOKA’s signature sculpting geometry provides a fluid, efficient ride, while a seamless, SpeedFrame upper helps reduce overall weight.
“Our team couldn’t be more proud to receive Runner’s World’s most prestigious honor,” said Jim Van Dine, HOKA ONE ONE President. “The Editor’s Choice Award is not only recognition for the Clifton but is also validation of the direction HOKA is driving the running industry. The Clifton’s revolutionary cushioning-to-weight ratio exemplifies our ongoing commitment to innovation.”
The HOKA ONE ONE Clifton, with an MSRP of $130, is available at running specialty stores.
