Not even clowns would wear hokas
Hoka clifton's aren't clown shoes. But I like them enough I would be prepared to try some of their clown shoe models
Yeh I have looked at those ones and thought they looked alright, do they feel unstable on rough ground?
Given the trend towards lighter with less cushion in road shoes I'm pretty sure running in Hokas the last 4 years on roads is the only thing that has kept me injury free.
Not as stable as a pair of Inov-8s but yes your knee cartilage will last longer
