Hoka One One Bondi 5

Canadian Running - - Gear -

$180; Men’s 283 g (10 oz.), Women’s 247 g (8.7 oz.); Drop ra­tio: 4 mm Although the Clifton is prob­a­bly Hoka’s sig­na­ture shoe, the brand was built on the the early suc­cess of the first ver­sions of the Bondi. This fully cush­ioned shoe rein­tro­duced many a bro­ken run­ner to the ben­e­fits of float­ing on a cloud. So what does a brand like Hoka do with an al­ready well evolved good sol­dier like the Bondi? Hoka over­hauls the up­per, us­ing the highly suc­cess­ful Clay­ton last for a bet­ter fit. The mid- and out­sole also get some mi­nor re­tool­ing, up­grad­ing the ma­te­ri­als for more dura­bil­ity. The Bondi 5 de­liv­ers a more nu­anced fit and in­creased life­span, which should be good news for its many de­voted fans.
