Hoka Clifton 6 Review

For anyone who has been living under a rock for the past few years Hoka are the brand that came out with the very funky looking shoe that most of the other brands are now copying in some shape or form.   The Clifton 6 is one of their flagship shoes this and the Bondi are by far the two biggest sellers in both Amphibian King stores.

Now in fairness I selected Afghanistan 🇦🇫 as it was the first country on the list, I assumed I’d be the only one from Afghanistan. Until Abdul decided he was going to give Ironman a shot and beat me in the run 😖😖. Then he tried to become Facebook friends with...
