Stock­ist: hokao­neone.eu Be­fore the brand be­came as pop­u­lar in the UK as it is to­day, mainly thanks to the Clifton shoe, the Bondi was the brand’s most pop­u­lar model in the USA. It was the shoe which es­sen­tially “broke the mould” as to how run­ning shoes should be made.

With its ul­tra-deep mid­sole cush­ion­ing it changed the way many peo­ple thought about cush­ion­ing and carved a new niche for it­self that has be­come more and more main­stream.

This up­date to the Bondi re­tains many of its orig­i­nal fea­tures with im­prove­ments pri­mar­ily fo­cused around fit and feel. The cush­ion­ing is 33mm deep in the heel, drop­ping from 4mm to 29mm in the fore­foot – so don’t think sim­ply be­cause it has such deep cush­ion­ing it will feel like a more cush­ioned ver­sion of a reg­u­lar shoe. That 4mm drop makes the foot feel lower and flat­ter against the ground.

At 310g the shoe feels very light for some­thing as big on your foot but af­ter a few miles that ex­tra size cush­ion­ing be­comes eas­ier to get along with. For high mileage run­ners want­ing great cush­ion­ing, the Bondi is a great op­tion.
