French outdoor gear giants HOKA and Satisfy Running have joined forces to transform a beloved lifestyle sneaker into a high-performance running shoe. The result of their collaboration is the Satisfy x Hoka Clifton LS for the Fall/Winter 2023 season, available in two striking colorways.
Set to launch on November 18, the Clifton LS introduces a fresh take on the iconic HOKA Clifton silhouette. While pricing details are yet to be unveiled, the announcement sparked some curiosity and discussion on Instagram. Some questioned whether the Clifton LS was intended for running, as it is listed as a lifestyle shoe on the HOKA website. Satisfy Running quickly responded, emphasizing their collaboration with HOKA to elevate the Clifton LS into a performance-focused model, emphasizing that their athletes use them for daily runs.
The Satisfy x HOKA Clifton LS boasts a combination of style and functionality. The shoe features a breathable and water-resistant mesh and ripstop nylon upper. A toggle lace-lock system ensures a secure fit, while the classic HOKA chunky molded EVA midsole and Durabrasion Rubber outsole provide comfort and durability. Satisfy’s branding adorns the toecap, adding a touch of style to the technical excellence.
The black and beige variations offer distinct looks, with one primarily black pair complemented by dark brown and hints of navy blue, and the other featuring a natural beige colorway with subtle moss-green accents. The Clifton LS is set to make waves in the world of running and fashion, bridging the gap between lifestyle and performance footwear.
