Hoka Clifton 8 Sneakers
I can attest to the amazing comfort and support of Hoka sneakers. I have two pairs myself and also a pair of flip flops. For the past 6 months, maybe more, I have been battling plantar fasciitis and Hokas are one of the only shoes I can wear that truly support my foot and take away the pain. Healthcare workers who are on their feet for entire shifts swear by them. These sneakers would make a great gift for the healthcare practitioner in your life.
Rocking my first set of @hoka! 100% changed the way my feet and back feel after a 12 hour shift. Shoutout to my wife for making it happen! #HokaClan pic.twitter.com/xxQ9OLrv34
