The next shoe up from the Saucony Endorphin Collection is the Saucony Endorphin Shift. Of the three models in the Saucony Endorphin collection, the Saucony Endorphin is made for training. It’s most similar to an already staple shoe from Saucony: The Ride 13.

According to Hoka, the Hoka Clifton Edge is a culmination of all of Hoka’s technology to date. The foam offers a lightweight springy, responsive cushioning, and ride.

The Hoka Clifton Edge has a unique look to it. It’s got an extended heel, which leads to a smooth transition. The extended heel is the first thing you notice.
