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.

    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!

      Love the Bondi 4! Comfortable, light weight and great cushioning! On my second pair now. The first pair lasted over 1000 km; the second pair is now over 600 km and still going strong. I am stocking up on this shoe so that I don't have to purchase the Bondi 5!

        Having used the Bondi for the last 4 versions since 2011, was looking forward to the 5, not disappointed, great cushioning, feel, support and traction for slight trails. Takes about 30k to break in.

          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.

          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.

                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.

                    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 ordered the shoe .5 larger than actual size that I wear and it felt a little tight until I walked about .5 mile then felt better and after 20 miles feels really comfortable. I am a pavement pounder for a course and this shoe was exactly what I needed no more sore shins or lower back pain. I just ordered a pair for my wife.

                          This shoes saves me during my thirteen hour shifts working expos. I have a slightly wide foot (close to an E width) and the shoe accommodates the width perfectly. As a running shoe I can run forever in this shoe. The firm cushioning is perfect.

                          Love the shoes, however, the heels are almost shot at 125 miles. Hoka needs to address wear issues before I buy another pair.

                          Reduced foot volume room in shoe compared to 4's. Had to return blisters, from rubbing against material. Disappointed, loved the 4's.

                          I typically wear a 4E width and was pleased that the Bondi 4 in a 2E fit so well. Loved the cushioned ride of the Bondi 4(over 180 miles and still going strong) and was hopeful the Bondi 5 would be even better. Unfortunately, the toe box isn't nearly as wide and am returning the shoes after 1 run. If a 4E width were offered the Bondi 5 would be perfect. Am returning the Bondi 5 in favor of the Bondi 4.

                          I am a runner and an IronMan. I can still run pretty fast for a old man too, but comfort is important now and my wide foot is pretty hard to please. I first used Hokas three years ago when I was recovering from Plantar Fasciitis. But they only came in D width. I managed by going to a bigger size but that was marginal. The soles wore out too fast, the built up sides did not drain water as the sweat ran down my legs, the the cushioning was a bit soggy too. The Bondi 5 corrects all the old issues. The wide fit is perfect, the venting drains well, the cushioning is delightfully resilient without absorbing energy, the black outer sole is really tough and thick enough for months of training and racing, and the looks are leading-edge great. Silver grey, black and red combined are my favorite colors. And these shoes make me seconds faster I am convinced. How can you go wrong? Truly wonderful.

                          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.

                              Enjoyed the Bondi 4 in 11 2E great fit. Tried the Bondi 5 in same size. Blisters across toe & by bottom of little toe i was actually wearing through the material. Definitely less total space in shoe than the 4. Had to return for 11.5 2E.

                              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.
