I'm a convert

By John M

from Berlin CT

Comments about Mens Hoka One One Bondi 5 Running Shoe:

I was against the notion of using Hokas since I've been more in the pursuit of the barefoot movement for the last 5 years after reading Born to Run. However as I've aged, now 53 I need more cushioning but did not want the large drop in traditional running shoes. I tried Altra for a while and then Hoka. I found the Clifton 2 and Bondi 3 too narrow so I passed and ran in Zoot for a while. I returned to the Clifton 3 nad now the Bondi 5. Both are excellent and I cannot say enough good things. Comfort is A1, the ride is plush but firm although the Bondi is softer and great for recovery runs. Toebox is roomy and arch is good. The only issue I have is that I typically wear a thin sock like Balega or Swiftwick and had to lace them differently across the bridge as they were a bit sloppy. Other than that....No issues.

Huge improvement over the 4

By Dave

from central OH

Comments about Mens Hoka One One Bondi 5 Running Shoe:

I was in my local running shop looking to replace my Clifton 3s with either another pair or the Clayton. The sales guy knew a lot about the Hoka lineup, said they just got the Bondi 5s in even though they weren't yet out on display. I like the Clifton 3s, but they're still a little narrow. Tried the Clayton and they didn't do it for me. He brought out the Bondi 5s, and I knew before I even tried them on they were going to work for me. The upper is a huge improvement over the 4 - much more pliable and flexible. I have a pair of Bondi 4, the wide version, and the toe box of the 5 has more room than the wide 4. Only one run in, but I'm extremely happy with these shoes.

Easy on the feet

By Thom

from Rome, GA

Comments about Mens Hoka One One Bondi 5 Running Shoe:

I got these to replace the Clifton 3 shoes which were outstanding. The Bondi 5 has a bit softer more shock absorbent sole. There is plenty of room in the toe box and they are much lighter than you would imagine with a sole as thick as they appear. I have only had them for 3 days and have not been on a long walk with them yet. With plantar fasciitis in my right foot I notice an immediate improvement over non-Hoka shoes.

    Comments about Mens Hoka One One Bondi 5 Running Shoe:

    I'm 6'2" 255 and have had 4 lower back operations. I'm very active but need a cushioned shoe to help with my back and have a bad knee. The Bondi 5 is my 6th pair of Hoka's and these are by far the best that I've had. After reading some reviews that may not have been so positive, I understand that all of our feet are different and won't have the same results as others. For me, I'm looking forward to another color already. The cushion and comfort are 2nd to none. The upper is soft, comfortable, and breathable like the Valor, with the lower of the Bondi. In my opinion, they've taken the best of 2 worlds to come up with the Bondi 5. I would take all comments with a grain of salt and give them a shot and form your own opinion. Good luck!

    Good Shoe

    By Brad

    from Indianapolis

    Comments about Mens Hoka One One Bondi 5 Running Shoe:

    It is unfortunate that Hoka will not make additional colors and models available in a wide. Apparently people with wide feet prefer only Grey and Black shoes. This is a great shoe and I began with the 4 the moment Hoka introduced a wide option bit it too had only select colors available. I do highly recommend the shoe and have worn it on runs longer than 50 miles without issue. It seems to be holding up to non-technical trail runs with limited signs of wear

    Miles of pain relief!

    By Robert

    from undisclosed

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about Mens Hoka One One Bondi 5 Running Shoe:

    I use this shoe for walking. I walk 2-2.5 miles daily. I wear custom orthotics for arch support and a toe pad for hammer toe. The Hoka One One allows the necessary room in the height of the shoe to comfortable wear the orthotics. Wearing the Bondi 5 is better than the 4 because of the additional room just behind the toe box. In addition to the necessary room, the rocking motion of the Bondi series makes walking possible without pain from my foot problems. My only wish the soles would last longer. I alternate two pairs of Bondi's for my daily walks and have to replace them every six months.

      Comments about Mens Hoka One One Bondi 5 Running Shoe:

      I have excessively wide feet die to bunions. The Bondi 4 worked well for me, but this shoe feels totally different and not as wide. My first 15 miler in the shoes, after 7 miles I had severe foot pain. Tried again for 5 miles. They are clearly pinching my feet where the Bondi 4 did not. May send them back.

      Comments about Mens Hoka One One Bondi 5 Running Shoe:

      I have been running in the various Bondi since 2013 and have not been disappointed. The Bondi 5 is really excellent and is the best so far. The upper material is very flexible and comfortable and the sole also looks more durable. I like the flat shoe laces. The Bondi 4 have rounded laces that seemed to come loose on a frequent. Even though my main concern is the cushioning and not necessarily style, the Bondi 5 now looks like a stylish running shoe. I was tired of a relative and my daughter in-laws comments that my running shoes looked like orthopedic running shoes. These are an excellent shoe for older runners like me who have had various injuries throughout the years

      Comments about Mens Hoka One One Bondi 5 Running Shoe:

      Thank you Hoka for adding a true stand alone wide option! The show is light, responsive for the amount of cushion on it which is excellent for a larger 6'1" 195 runner with a neutral gait! I can hit the road in these 5-6 miles at a time and not have a single issue with my hip (occasional trouble from a torn labrum). The upper tongue has just the right amount of padding and the sock like fit of the shoe is pretty outstanding. The Bondi 4 was my change of pace road work shoe and was solid but this is a big improvement! Kudos Hoka! Now if you could just drop the plastic tabs on the side of the boxes of some of your other shoes and offer them in a wide! 10-25 miles per week weekend and weekday warrior...

      Best pair of Hoka's. I do medical sales, and stand in surgery all day. No shoe brand can compete with Hoka's comfort, and support for standing 8 hours plus, daily. This is my favorite pair yet!

        The Bondi 5 is a big improvement over the 4 or even the 3. They finally got the toe box right; there's much more room than in any previous version. The tongue is thankfully a tad longer and softer, and the heel fits better. The cushioning is about the same or a little better. The Gray/Navy color is really more like light gray/dark gray but I actually like that better. Will definitely order another pair.

        The fit of the Bondi 5 is a great update over the 4 and even the 3. They finally got the toe box right, giving it the extra room it has always needed. The tongue is also improved, getting just enough cushion. Definitely a great ride. Only time will tell how durable it is, but so far it gets 5 stars.

        Off its Rocker

        By Allan

        from undisclosed

        Verified Reviewer

        Comments about Mens Hoka One One Bondi 5 Running Shoe:

        Just got the new Bondi B 5. It is very different from the previous models some good things and some not so good.
        Pros-
        It's looks are vastly improved
        It softer and seems more cushioned than the Bondi B 4 more like the 3rd model.
        The laces are flat making it much easier to lace and stay laced
        The shoe is much more comfortable than before.
        More forefoot room
        Improved outsole for durability
        Cons-
        Really only one negative buts it's a big one. The rocker sensation is all but gone. The shoe lands flat and toe off is not ramped like before making it harder to roll past the plush EVA. If you take the Bondi B 4 and set it on the ground and press down on the toe raising the heel off the ground and let go the shoe rocks back and forth 3 to 4 times. With the Bondi B 5 doing the same thing the shoe lands flat on the heel and does not rock at all. It feels like they changed the last all together making it l it just a Clifton with more EVA.
        Running in the shoe is still a pleasure but not being able to rock the shoe to experience a forward roll via a ramped toe off is very disappointing. Many earlier Hoka models had a huge rocker feeling with dynamic toe off, newer models have a much tamer rocker with some feeling that they have none at all.

        These shoes have great cushioning. I'm 75 years old and have been running for over 35 years. These shoes have a springy like bounce to them which helps me negotiate the concrete I run on.

        Need better colors and need to offer the cliftons in wide!

        By Slow runner

        from Syracuse, NY

        Comments about Mens Hoka One One Bondi 5 Running Shoe:

        I ran in the 4's and they were comfortable but clunky. It sounds like they fixed the problem, but I won't find out until the 12th when they arrive. Is it me or the Bondi colors are awful. They need to also make a wide clifton. The word is out about Hoka, so Hoka please make the clifton in a wide so we all can enjoy your shoes.
