We are about the same size and I find the Hoka Clifton 8 to be perfect in this department
Love them but run big
Comfortable, helped improve knee pain, and impact from running. I use them while running on the tread. I first purchased a size 9, but had to exchange for an 8.5. I completed the HOKA fit questions, and am consistently a size 9 in other brand running shoes.

Hoka Clifton 8 Review (2022): Should You Get It?
In contrast, the E2 is relatively narrow. So we recommend the Hoka Clifton 8 if you’re not sure which shoe to choose.

Hoka Clifton 8 also seems to fit the bill, going by reviews. Soft ride, 5 mm drop, decent amount of strategically placed rubber on the outsole.

HOKA ONE ONE Clifton 8 Review - Running Northwest
Overall, the HOKA Clifton 8 stays true to the recipe, but we do worry a bit that the subtle tweak to the tongue padding might see a few folks gravitate to other models. It is still a great shoe as always though, incredibly dependable for almost every distance and for any type of run. The Clifton is a great throw-on-and-go shoe and it is always a pretty easy recommendation

I did most of my marathon training long runs in the Nike react infinity. Hoka Clifton 8 feels a bit boring for me. Novablast 2 is a great shoe, but sometime it wants me to run too fast for a long run. Lately, I have been loving the On Cloudmonster.
Wear Test & Review: Hoka Clifton 8 | Brooklyn Running Company
They were perfect for what I needed them for, to keep me going strong and steady on hilly and uneven terrain. Latoya says, “The HOKA ONE ONE Clifton 8s are perfect for tempo and long runs. They’re cushioned and responsive enough to handle longer times on your feet — and I humbly say this a slower paced back of the pack runner

After many, many tries, I found New Balance socks and Hoka Clifton 8 shoes together works the best for me. As long as what you do helps you to be your best, it doesn’t matter to me the brand. Your mileage may differ.

HOKA ONE ONE Clifton 8 Conclusion. MEAGHAN: The Clifton 8 did not disappoint. HOKA kept all the great qualities of the previous iteration, but changed up the midsole composition (for the better)

I have paired them with Hoka Clifton 8. Pegasus is also great! The Hoka is softer but less durable
