The Women’s Clifton 8 is a favourite among celebrities and shoppers, and has several unique features that makes them well worth the splurge.

Crafted with a lightweight, responsive midsole and the dynamic ride characteristics, the Clifton 8 features a streamlined silhouette and breathable upper made from engineered mesh. It's designed with a thick, curved outsole that follows a rocking motion for a smooth stride, and an extended heel for added impact support.

They’re even available in both standard and wide widths for a more inclusive range of sizes. 

With a 4.5-star rating from nearly 200 customer reviews, the Clifton 8 is also a top pick among shoppers.

“I not only speed walk in these shoes, I also work in them!" reads one review. "They are the most comfortable shoes! I love not only the comfort of the Clifton, but the style and variety of colours."

People with foot pain have also praised them for their ultra-comfortable design.

“I wear the Cliftons for daily walking. Only shoes I have worn for several years and it's the only ones that I don't have to wear inserts. [They] provide all the support I need,” shared one reviewer.

“The best athletic shoes I've ever worn," added another. "The Mayo Clinic recommended it to me as I have some arthritis in my ankle. I now own 8 pairs!"

While they are known to be extremely comfortable, many reviewers have recommended opting for a half-size down from your usual size for a better fit.

“I love these shoes. They're truly one of the best tennis shoes I've worn but I should've ordered an 8.5 instead of my normal size 9,” one review explained. “They are supportive, lightweight and comfortable but run half a size big.”
