Less then standard Adidas/NB cushioning, yet up on stilts. Dreadful.

Give me that marshmallowly bondi cushion. So I can stamp the downhills.

Why mess with the shoe that made the brand?

Comments about Mens Hoka One One Bondi 5 Running Shoe:

Long time supporter of Hoka shoes but I am switching to something else. The toe box just isn't big enough and I am tired of saying things and having no one listen. I can't wear orthotics or thick socks with these shoes. So I am forced to use the stock insert that I don't want to use and it's still to tight in the toe box.

      Comments about Mens Hoka One One Bondi 5 Running Shoe:

      I purchased the Bondi 5 wide. The third pair of Hokas for me. My first pair was amazing, the second was okay. This pair of Bondis is the worst shoe I've ever run in. The left shoe was fine but the right was like a brick and made my foot go numb after a mile into my run. Took them back and received a replacement pair. Now both feet go numb a mile in. Last pair of Hoka for me.

      Proceed with caution if you like the Bondi 4

      Comments about Mens Hoka One One Bondi 5 Running Shoe:

      I run 6-9 miles 3 days a week and have loved the Bondi 4's. Great comfort and shock absorption. I recently purchased these Bondi 5's and it feels like a completely different shoe - especially the hard sole. Hoka is still a good company but I felt compelled to pass this on so others won't make the same mistake I made.

      Comments about Mens Hoka One One Bondi 5 Running Shoe:

      I purchased the Bondi 4 because the shoe had very comfortable wide width and great cushioning. Although, the cushioning only lasted around six months and the inside of the shoe did not hold up well. Now I purchased the Bondi 5 and they've changed the shoe. Very tight across the top! My left foot is bigger than my left yet the right shoe actually seems tighter! Very disappointed in this shoe! It already feels like they are flattening out. Won't buy again.

        Comments about Mens Hoka One One Bondi 5 Running Shoe:

        The Bondi 4 was my favorite running shoe ever. The Bondi 5 is my least favorite. They are extremely stiff whereas the Bondi 4 was very-well cushioned. They are really polar opposites on the cushioning spectrum. I had hoped the Bondi 5 would soften after some use, but they never did. In terms of performance, the two models do not resemble each other at all. The Bondi 5 model is a totally different shoe and should not have the same model name in my opinion. I gave up on the Bondi 5's after 100 miles. I have had good experiences with other Hoka shoes so this was very disappointing.

          Comments about Mens Hoka One One Bondi 5 Running Shoe:

          This is a great update to the Bondi 4. I have flat feet and run about 40-60 miles per week while in training, and after Hoka destroyed my Stinson Lites with that trash they called the Stinson 3, I needed a new go to for Ultra training. I had a pair of Bondi 3's years ago, however, never really found the B4's all that great, somehow the 4 just lacked the traditional Hoka cushioning that keeps me coming back. The Bondi 5 is a great update; wider last, comfortable breathable upper, and light weight! These are slightly firmer than the Clifton 3, but that firmness translates into more stability for my slight over pronation vs the C3. Also, the Clifton series keeps getting fatter and heavier, so the weight difference is negligible between the C3 and Bondi at this point (side note: Running Warehouse First Look has the Clifton 4 gaining even MORE weight.. unacceptable for a shoe that originally only weighed 7.6oz and was magical.... C4 is projected at 9.5-10oz). The cushioning of the B5 is extremely plush - but not squishy - making it more responsive than the C3. While I couldn't imagine doing tempo or speed work in this shoe, it is perfect for racking up the miles just cruising/daily training and for recovery runs. It is a great compliment to my last pair of Stinson Lites in the rotation for ultra training. Love the neon orange colorway. Good job Hoka! Now please bring back my Stinson Lites!

          I previously had the Bondi 4's which were way too narrow. Gave me blisters on the outsides of my feet on longer runs. I am normally a standard 'D' width in other shoes like Asics, but Hokas run really NARROW. Anyways, I saw that the Bondi 5's came in wide, so I ordered a pair. Could not be happier. Feel like I could run forever in these shoes.

          Bondi 5 for 5th Back Surgery

            Comments about Mens Hoka One One Bondi 5 Running Shoe:

            I'm 6'2" 269lbs and active

            Due to a bad car accident years ago, I underwent my 5th back surgery July 5, 2017. The herniated disc (L5-S1) bruised my S1 nerve root. The bruising has left me unable to plant and step with my left foot and only able to walk on my heel. For work, I've always had Ecco Track series, which are great shoes. Unfortunately, I was unable to wear them because the heel in the shoe was firm.

            I had purchased my Bondi 5's 4 months prior to the surgery and was very happy with the cushion, wear, and light weigh of the shoes. If it weren't for the Bondi 5's and their thick cushioned heel, I would have to use a cane or walker today.

            As of today, December 28, 2017, there is plenty of wear left on the bottom. For someone my size and activity, I can't say enough about the Bondi 5's. I purchased my 2nd pair recently and will purchase another pair of Black when these wear thru sometime this decade!

            Thank you so much Hoka One One for allowing me to walk without the need of a cane or walker!

              I have owned Bondis in the past and was excited about these Bondi 5s. I have been disappointed over the past year and a half as Hoka seems to be making their shoes narrower and tighter. They used to be the most comfortable shoe money could buy. I have regular width feet and have never bought a wide size. The last two pair I have bought have hurt. No matter how loosely I tied the laces, my feet became numb and hurt very badly. This is horrible. The Bondi 5 is bad about this. Here is the thing. The actual shoe is wide enough. It is the upper fabric. Hoka is making the upper fabric too small and tight. I will never buy these again. If you have a medium width D foot, these are too tight.

                      I couldn't recommend the Hoka One Bondi 5 any more highly. In addition to being a comfortable shoe, apparently it has some healing powers.

                      Like many runners I suffer from plantar fasciitis. The pain in my right heel area had gotten so bad that I thought that I might have to give up running outside.

                      I've owned many running shoes over the years but it wasn't until I bought the Bondi 5 about five months ago did the pain in the foot all but subside. The cushioning in the shoe - especially the heel support - is perfect for those who run on sidewalks and streets.

                      At first the shoe seemed a wee bit bulky but within a couple of days I came to appreciate the support. I run about 28 times a month so having a quality shoe is essential.

                      This was money well spent.

                        HOKA needs to return to its roots with Clifton 3 -like cushioning.

                          Comments about Mens Hoka One One Bondi 5 Running Shoe:

                          I was recently introduced to Hoka by a high school XC/Track athlete in our neighborhood, when I asked him (gently) if his "meet" shoes weren't awfully big, bulky, and heavy. He took one off and handed it to me, telling me how soft, light, and leg-friendly, and then durable, they were. Amazed, I went to the local shop that carries them and ended up in love with a pair of Bondi 5's. At my insistence my wife agreed to try them too, and she chose a pair of Clayton' 3's. A diabetic, she normally buys specialty shoes, but quickly decided to go with Hoka's, too. After 3 week or so of use, you'd have to fight us to take our Hoka's away. Terrific!! Pillow soft, my Bondi 5's have banished all the jarring and pounding from running; in fact, I am no longer even aware of what's going on with my feet and legs any more, other than cruising along. All those Hoka "Hi-Tech" improvements add up to the title of this review!

                          I have also added Hoka's (also Hi-Tech) Low-Cut Socks (which pair wonderfully with Hoka shoes; see review there) and Hoka Ora recovery sandals ("palatial" after a run and any other time; I now use them exclusively as my "house slippers" ... just fabulous).

                          Retired, I have run all my life and have never been so pampered and comfortable. Even my Hoka Technical Tee (Citron) is a special pleasure to wear. THANK YOU HOKA!!!!

                          I have been running in the Hoka Bondi series for years (since the Bondi B version) and this is by far is the best update yet. Improvements: 1) More comfortable toe box/extra width in the forefoot. 2) MUCH improved uppers (the mesh in the Bondi 4's broke down after about 3 months or less). The uppers are more supple and breathable. 3) Added rubber on sole to improve wear without compromising the cushion. 4) MUCH improved looks and color choices. The only issue I've had with the new Bondi 5's are the shoe laces are "slick" and while they don't come untied when I run they are harder to "hold" when tying the shoe. Hoka's have enabled me to extend my running life and have made running a joy again. I am in my early 50's weigh 200 pounds, 6' 1" and run 3x a week mostly on the road. Nice job on the update Hoka.

                              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!

                              I had Achilles surgery after which my doctor strongly recommended I try the Hoka One Ones. I will use them frequently now during recovery and will consider them after wards as well. So far I love them.

                                  If you are working/standing on your feet all day, these (Bondi 5) just might be the most comfortable shoe on the planet. Working/standing on concrete all day can wear down the bottoms of my heels, but the Bondi 5 are remarkable. I am 6'2" and 225 lbs. HOWEVER, I feel it is important to mention that they do fit just a tad tight. I typically wear 11 Medium, but they were a little tight on the sides of my feet. Length was spot on. So, for the FIRST time in my life, I picked up 11 Wide, and they are perfect right out of the box.

                                      Comments about Mens Hoka One One Bondi 5 Running Shoe:

                                      I have been using the Bondi line of running shoes for almost 2 years now, specifically the Bondi 4. They are very well cushioned, spacious toe box and I can buy them in wide cut. When the Bondi 5 came out, there were some negative reviews and I was hesitant to buy it, then I decided to give it a try. I can say I love this shoe. It continues to be a very good, well cushioned running shoe in the Bondi line from Hoka One One. I'll give some details based on an initial, a little over 11 miles run:
                                      1. Design: it is a well put together shoe with a good look. The Bondi 4 in wide cut came in only one color, the wide Bondi 5 comes in 3, although the one dubbed "formula 1" (pictured), in my opinion, looks the best of the 3.
                                      2. Fit: I wear the wide cut, and I have to say, the wide Bondi 5 is a touch smaller than the wide Bondi 4. Nevertheless it fit me very nicely and it felt comfortable, and, unlike the Bondi 4, I didn't feel any space for my toes to bounce around within the shoe. So bottom line, if you used the the Bondi 4 and it fit you just right, you might need to consider buying a size up of the Bondi 5. As I said, for me it fit fine and was very comfortable.
                                      3. Cushioning: the cushioning is still amazing, and I may say a bit better than the Bondi 4. It totally feel like "walking on pillows" without the loss of any stability.
                                      4. The shoe laces: there were some complaints with the Bondi 4 about the shoe laces being too short. The Bondi 5 shoe laces have enough length and can be tied easily. They are, however, flimsier than the Bondi 4 shoe laces, so I don't know if this will affect their sturdiness long term.
                                      5 The toe box: the toe box is lower than that of the Bondi 4. By the middle of my run I felt the front of my foot being slightly squeezed, something I never felt with the Bondi 4. It wasn't that big of a deal, so far it is not bothering me, but I think next time I'll order the shoe one size up (i wear 9.5 EE, so next time I'll go with 10 EE instead).

                                        Almost gave up running due to plantar fasciitis. I had tried everything on the market and was looking at surgery to alleviate the pain. Several ultra runners recommended I try Hokas. From the moment I tried a pair on my pain went away. It was literally a miracle for me. I have been running in this shoe for 15 months with absolutely zero pain. I use this shoe for both training and running events, in wet and dry, on paved roads and trails and it works great for me.

                                          I'm 49 with some mileage on the clock, and the usual aches and pains. This shoe gets me motivated to run again. Wonderful cushioning, good fit, and excellent service. I'll be buying again soon

                                          I love these shoes. I walk about 30 miles a week. Almost immediately after switching to these shoes, my feet and knees stopped hurting. I only wish there was an ATR version so that I can use them on my walking trail.

                                          I tried these out then returned them - while they seem well constructed and look more like a conventional running shoe than some Hoka models (if you're into that) they were pretty stiff and, despite the ample heel height, did not have the cushioning that I've come to expect from Hoka (I have a pair of Claytons that I use for running/workouts and a pair of Clinton 2s for general use and walking). I decided to go with a pair of Clinton 3s - they still seem to have the cushioning that really makes a difference with my ankle/Achilles and knee issues...

                                          I have put maybe 250 Miles on my "all back everything" B5's. Very stiff, but not a bad thing in my opinion. It is after all a road shoe. I'm 195 am currently on vacation in NYC running 5 Miles then walking up to 9 Miles a day in the shoes and they feel great. My feet never hurt. This is my 9th or 10 th pair of Hoka's. I like the marshmallow feel of the older shoes. This new batch is good too. The more stable feel I think helps with body mechanics, almost no back pain. I'm a 14, my foot looks wide but in the correct size length wise I'm standard with. Great shoe love the black styling. Super cool.
