Often called Clifton for the trail, the Hoka Challenger ATR 4 looks even more like a Clifton with its cleaner, less busy look and more breathable upper.

Arranged closer together towards the heel for a smoother, more consistent ride, its lugs have a wider spread in the forefoot to help with grip on the trail and in wet conditions. Still as versatile and supportive no matter the running surface, Challenger ATR 4 has improved upper durability in the areas you need it (like a larger toe guard area).
