Top Shoe Picks for this Year’s 2015 Ridge Run

This summer, I have been doing my Ridge Run training in Hoka Cliftons and also in the Nike Wildhorse. Not sure yet which shoe will get picked for the actual race. Either one would make a good choice. The Cliftons are cushier and more forgiving then the Wildhorse on the rocky Ridge Run course. However, the Wildhorse is demonstrating more durability as the Cliftons are getting chewed up by the terrain. The Ginger Runner has some informative and entertaining reviews of the Clifton and Wildhorse. If you are looking for a running shoe, they are worth the time to view.

Clifton Review:


Clifton 2 Review: (Interesting the comment about the 2 being narrower. I saw this with a new pair of the originals compared to a used pair. After putting some miles in the new pair it eventually grew to match the old pair in width.)


Challenger ATR Review: (The trail version of the Clifton)




Wildhorse 2: (Out of the 3 versions of the Wildhorse the first is the best. You can still find them at some liquidators such as eBay for cheap)


Wildhorse 3:
