    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!

    Comments about Mens Hoka One One Bondi 5 Running Shoe:

    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.

    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.

    Hoka One One Improved An Already Great Shoe

      Comments about Mens Hoka One One Bondi 5 Running Shoe:

      Having run on the Bondi 4 for about a year (35 miles/week), I knew I had found my perfect shoe. Minor aches and pains that I was starting to experience in my hip flexors, completely went away after using the Bondi 4. I began to think I should buy up a couple pairs, as the new version was about to hit. Well, I decided to go with the new model and after putting in 35 miles, I can see that I made the correct choice.

      It seems that forefoot fit has been updated, eliminating some of the unnecessary roominess. The engineered mesh upper with slight stretch is a noticeable improvement. A molded OrthoLite insole is like a little pillow under foot. While the overall heel-to-toe strike seems only slightly firmed up from the last version, it is still a very pleasurable ride. I absolutely love the new Bondi 5 and just don't see how you can improve on this incredible shoe. Well, I guess I've said that before. Great job Hoka product team. Great job.

        The shoe feels stiff at the start but has broken in nicely for me. I like it way more than previous iterations and will continue to rack up the miles in them. My only knock is that the tongue is stiff and can put pressure on part of my ankle if the laces are tied too tight.

          I run between 110 and 150 miles per week, focusing primarily on 50m-100K Road/Trail Ultras and dabble in the 1/2-Full Marathon on Road. The Bondi has been one of my favorite shoes for the past two years. I'm a big fan of the update for several reasons. 1. Extremely comfortable and breathable upper. 2. Wide forefoot that accommodates feet well on easy recovery days. 3. Light and responsive shoe capable of responding well to paces between 4:50 and 7:30 per mile. 4. Durable-Capable of withstanding 500-750 miles depending on size/stature of runner. 5. Cushioning is perfect for easy recovery and long runs.

          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

            I was adding the Bondi to my rotation of Clifton 3's. First, they are built on a curved last. That doesn't work for me. The seem much higher than the Cliftons and they feel clunky. Also, they feel much heavier.

                I think the shoes are pretty good, great for absorbing impact for those like myself, who have arthritis and joint issues. I have FAI, and arthritic knees, Hips, Ankles, Feet, and Spine, but do well enough with running. these shoes are perfect for absorbing impact enough for me to go longer distances like 5-9 miles. If you have weight/joint/health issues, these are the perfect shoe for you. ive checked out all the other brands thicker soled shoes, and they dont compare.

                      I've been in Hoka's for the past 4 years...everything from previous Bondi's, Valor, Stinson, Mafate and the Clayton. This new Bondi is by far my least favorite. The classic pillowy cushion and rockered effect are gone. It's almost as if they're using different foam, the ride is just so stiff in comparison to shoes of the past. Not only that, but they land like bricks...highly inflexible and missing that signature rolling, rockered effect that naturally shifted you through landing to push-off.

                      The nice thing about this shoe is that Hoka has really gotten the upper right. It's comfortable, wraps the foot nicely and seems to both support and give a bit where it should.

                      I don't know what's up with this shoe, but it's going back. Hoping I can find another Hoka that works as this is the first time in 4 years I've considered looking toward another brand.

                        Comments about Mens Hoka One One Bondi 5 Running Shoe:

                        I've been trying Hokas since the Bondi 1. Every time Hoka fixes one thing, they mess up another. The Bondi 5 in a EE now has sufficient width across the wide part of the foot, but the toe area is too narrow. I get the well-known Hoka blister on the outside of my big toe. The problem is the high collar of rubber along the upper. That collar makes sense in the rear half of the shoe (for the bucket-seat fit and feel) but not in the front half (where it rubs against the outside of the toes). I'm also now getting rubbing just below the outside ankle bone. I do NOT get these problems with other EE shoes.

                        Service/delivery is always great with Road Runner Sports.

                          This is my 4th Hoka, and it is the best. It is not that the previous were deficient. They were not. Rather, the new Bondi builds upon a very good shoe and improves it. I like the slightly wider forefoot space, the enhanced inner, upper padding, the tighter heel grip, and the overall quality. Hoka, I am back!

                          Up size by 0.5 as these are tight in the toe box. Very comfortable otherwise, well made.

                          Only have 1 run in these awesome shoes but this I can tell from the Bondi 4, which I love. More foot room which makes for even more comfortable run. I have PF in right foot for 2 years now and if it were not for the Bondi 4 shoes I'd likely would not be running today. Before my Bondi 4 purchase I was hobbled. I ran in NB and Asics before Hoka's. Great shoes but I obviously require more cushion.

                            These are not near as cushioned as the Bondi 4. The sole is less soft and more hard rubber. For durability, I suppose, as the Bondi 4 would wear down quickly. I had a lot of knee pain, and was scheduled for an MRI, when someone suggested to me the Bondi 4. Within a month all my pain was gone, canceled the MRI and have run on them ever since. AS often happens when you have running for 36 years like I have, they "upgrade" the shoe, and it doesn't work anymore. My knee pain is back since I started the Bondi 5. Other pains have arisen, and even when the foot strikes, it feels harder than the 4. Definitely very discouraged. Since I need a wide shoe I am severely limited. I wish Hoka had more choices with width. Many bigger or heavier runners come to them for cushioned shoes, but most guys my size have wide feet too. Back to search for new shoes again. I want my Bondi 4's back
