Sean Hermanywrote a review of Hoka One One Clifton 3 Running Shoe - Men's on September 18, 2016
Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size
I originally bought the Clifton 2 for running when I couldn't make it to the trails, to take the edge off of pounding the pavement. I ended up liking that shoe enough to use it for a good portion of my trail running as well.
Version 3 maintains what was good with the Clifton 2, with a little bit more room up front, and what feels to me like just a bit more bounce in the step - in a good way.
If I had a major complaint, it would be that the shoe is on the lamer side of their collection in the looks department - but then, I think the Huakas look good - so ymmv.
For reference, I hate Euro-fit tiny toebox running shoes, which is most of them - and I'm a mid to forefoot striker. I'd be an Altra fan, but just don't love a lot of their more most recent models. Give these a shot if you want to give the maximalist world a try and you're of a similar mindset.
Finally, while they're not marketed as trail shoes - they work just fine unless you're really getting on gnarly rocky terrain. I do most of my running in the Wasatch, and while I own other shoes for really rough stuff, I can get by on most trails with these. If anything, version 3 has layed down a bit of rubber on the sole where before was just their RMAT foam, so they should wear even better.
