    Comments about Mens Hoka One One Bondi 3 Running Shoe:

    Good cushioning (obviously). Quite poor quality upper though, so very nice and soft on the bottom of the feet, kind of hard and clunky on the top. But the most important thing is that the outsoles do not last! I am a supinator, so a lot of pressure on the lateral side of the heal, but the rubber was gone in that area after only 15 miles! At least with my previous shoes this would happen after 150 miles or so. How this can be a shoe designed for ultra marathons?! Very disappointed with the shoe, especially for the price!

      I've only got a 5 runs on these Bondi 3's, but I think Hoka could be my new brand of choice. I've run on ASICS my whole life, most recently Gel-Nimbus. The Bondi's do change my posture, moving me forward. My splits are faster, feels great so far.

      Love my Hokas...by looking at them, you would think they are just a fad. But after wearing them on a few long runs you wonder why you never tried them. Your muscles and joints don't get hammered like an average shoe. I have 3 pair and love them all.

      I am 6'6" and 270 lbs and have had both knees replaced. I also have a stress fracture in my right foot. I walk about 3 to 4 miles 5 to 6 days a week even though I experience considerable discomfort. I have only had these shoes about a week but have noticed a great decrease in the amount of pain and actually enjoy my walks now. I would recommend these to anyone experiencing the same problems.

            I have had knee problems for thirty years. I have had knee pain when my runs went further than just a few miles. These shoes have taken away all that pain! It is almost to good to be true. I am training for a half marathon and I never thought I would be able to do that. The team at Road runner gave me great advice! I am thrilled with these shoes!

              Are you looking for a running shoe with that perfect shock absorption from your heal strikes. Then this is the shoe you are looking for.
              I always change out my insoles of my favorite running shoes to get that perfect cushion feel that my body, running style is looking for.
              I have found it in these HOKA Bondi 3 shoes.
              I was turned on to these shoes by a good friend. I was able to try his pair on to get a feel of the shoes sizing, comfort, cushion level, and just the over all feel of the support. Those shoes "Rocked" I purchased my own pair shortly after this first introduction. I am going to try other models of the HOKA shoe line in the future. It is nice finding a shoe that I don't have to purchase a new insole to give me the feel "cushion" I like. Now this is my opinion, I believe this brand will help runners, in their older year 50+, from ankle, knee, hip and lower back issues. If your still somewhat competitive and like to train/exercise at a high level. These shoes "might" and I say "might" help Aleve common joint issues from the reduced impact from the extra cushion.
              So if your looking for a cushioned shoe this brand is one to try. Have a great day of training.

                I am very please with these shoes, they are the best running shoes I have ever ran in. I have around 150 miles on them so far with no real complaints. I run 2 to 5 miles 4 to 6 days a week. I bought them after reading reviews on the hoka's having a lot of cushioning to help with injuries and soreness. they do a great job with it, I can run without pain which is great. only one blister and I think that was just a sock issue. I would recommend Hoka's to anyone who deals with pain when running, they helped me. the size is close to true I wear 9.5D in work boots and 10 in my Hoka's but my last running shoes were reebok zigs and I took a 10.5 in them. the sole seemed to wear out a little fast just under the ball of my foot, but it is just there and there is plenty of sole to go. I should get at least 500 miles out of them.

                    Second pair of Hoka's, the first were the Conquests (diff review). These shoes are awesome as far as cushion and ride are concerned. My feet (more on that later) and body feel great after any type of run whether it was a long run or speed work. The durability seem on par with the Conquests I tried first. Although, I do have a response to some of the folks that doubt the durability of the Hoka's - are you serious? I admit the little rubber areas on the soles will wear through fairly quickly as compared to other brands but this in no way has anything to do with durability. Have you noticed how thick the soles and grooves are?!?!?! It would take a couple thousand miles to wear these dudes slick! I'm 205# and 6'-4" with high arches and put 530 miles on the Conquest before I started feeling it in my calves. That's at least 100 ++ miles more than ANY other shoe I have ran in. Big guys like me are ruff on running shoes. Now, the big killer about this shoe for ME. Consider that I may have weird feet and this need not apply across the board. The tongue connection in the right shoe is painful to the tops of my toes. Constant pressure the entire run - no rubbing or chaffing just constant pressure. There were a couple other reviewers with same report. I am somewhat hammer-toed but in both feet. No problems with left shoe. The other problem - the cut of the ankle on the left shoe is taller than the right and digs into that ankle. I somewhat remedied that with an extra insole. It really needs another to not be bothersome but then my foot is too snug throughout. Why should I have to do that anyway. These are going back as soon as the backordered Clifton's arrive (hope they don't have fit issues). At any rate these are awesome shoes that I would love if not for the 2 issues above. I am definitely a Hoka fan but I cant jump on the bandwagon for the Bondi 3's.

                        This was the first time I tried a Hoka One One. It wasn't bad, but it just wasn't for me. I had been wearing NB Foam, this shoe felt like I was really far from the road. I was missing something in my run...the ground. If I didn't look and place my feet correctly, a roll would have been bad. The cushion was nice, the shoe was comfortable, and it didn't feel heavy while it looks big. It just wasn't for me.

                          Bought these shoes upon recommendation from a friend who is a cross country coach. Injured my Achilles tendon in a 5 road race on July 4th. Had a very busy triathlon season on the schedule to there was no time for rest. Started using these shoes in August and felt a difference in the Achilles pain right away. With these shoes, I was able to recover from a partial Achilles tendon tear with no rest and consistent training and racing in 3 months. My last 2 triathlons in September were pain free. By the way, I am 51 years old and the last time this happened in my 30 ' s it took 7 months to get better. These shoes make a difference.

                          Lots to say about these shoes. Thank you to the manufacturers for coming up with a lightweight cushioning system for the sole. However, these shoes need a lot of modifications to make them great. There is NO interior cushioning to the upper. The tongue is basically a flap of rubber. The top of the foot gets no protection from shoe movement. Especially missed is padding all around the shoe opening. Of course, the lack of padding on the upper allows these shoes to be quite breathable. I am a woman whose most former shoe was a men's 9.5 EE Asics Gel Nimbus but, because of the wide cut, I can wear a men's 9.5 D Hoka One One Bondi. The cut is very boxy -- think My Darling Clementine and cardboard boxes without topses, so there is movement of the shoe on your skin. When I tried these on in the store (on the recommendation of my best friend whose is a triathlete), I was hooked on the sole cushioning and bought two pairs. After wearing them for a week and putting in my usual 40 plus miles, I'm taking the second pair back. I will keep the first because of the sole cushioning. I now only wear them with Smartwool socks for protection from the interior of the upper. One other comment: with my mileage, I go through shoes quickly. Part of the attraction of these was another friend's (a century trail runner) statement about their durability. However, my miles are primarily on pavement and some blacktop. I do not believe that the tread (especially the portion across the ball of the foot -- which is distinctly softer) will hold up well to cement, rocks, or even blacktop. If these shoes had better padding on the interior -- controlling the shifting and pressure of the upper on my feet, I'd be a total convert. I'm calling these a recommended shoe, but simultaneously telling you that you'll need protection from them.

                          I really wanted this shoe to work out. Out of the box, it was great! It's not a speed shoe, but perfect for easy pace recovery and long runs. However, the upper just falls apart in a short period of time. I gave it two tries, with the same result. Maybe they'll get it worked out over time, but it's time for me to move on! Very disappointed considering the price point.

                          This is a great trainer. However, they are too heavy for racing. So, I just use them as a heavy-duty trainer. I log ~40+ miles a week in them and they last. The traction tends to wear out quickly, but i have found no durability issues with the cushioning.

                          I have back problems and need alot of cushion. These shoes are better than anything i've tried before. But I find i need a new pair every six weeks or so because they do lose their tread and cushion. Still, very worthwhile.

                            I was very disappointed with these shoes. Had my hopes high, but the first pair was way too big. Sent those back while ordering a small size. When the smaller size arrived, I threw my orthotics in and went for a run. Within 3 miles, I had a slice taken out of the top of my toe. Once home, I ran my hand inside of the upper, and it's like a saw blade where the tongue is sewn in. For the premium price, I thought I was going to get a premium product. Not even close.

                              I've been an avid runner since 1984. More marathons than I can count, many ultras, triathlons, etc. My point is I've tried a hundred shoes and seen the fads (can you spell "minimalist")come and go. But the Hokas are completely different.
                              For the first time in 30 years I came back from a 20 mile training run, exhausted, but was shocked to find my legs were almost FRESH! No soreness. No limited range of motion. No compulsion to stretch them out. After a nap I could have gone dancing. That's never happened before. After you get used to them, running in Hokas is more like pedalling a bike. A nice even cycling motion rather than bang, bang, bang on the ground.
                              Word of warning: You have to run more than the "out the store and down the sidewalk" trial. Took me at least two runs to get comfortable because they feel sooooo odd to run in. Until you learn to relax you almost run in an careful, guarded way.
                              Only complaint is the tongue. Had to cut the weird end down so it didn't wear a hole in me (after it wore a hole in me). Come-on HOKA ... buy a pair of Zoots and see how they do it.
                              Regardless, I'll NEVER go back to "regular" shoes again!

                                I've been a Brooks fan for the past few years (Mostly Ghost and others). I usually run form 30-40 miles a week. Big frame 250 pound / 6 feet. After lots of reading I decided to give the Hoka One One a try and all I can say is WAO!!!! Most comfortable shoe I have tried in quite some time. Been using these for few weeks and feel great. Looking forward for this year NYC 26.2!! Highly recommended

                                  I am an avid Bondi fan and nearly didn't buy the Bondi 3s due to all the negative reviews about lack of cushion and so on. To me, the cushion feels the same as the Bondi 2s. The basic design and sizing is nearly identical. The Bondi 3s come with the quick laces (or whatever they call them) which I detest, but they include regular laces too. The tongue is paper thin compared to the old padded design, but I haven't found any issues, pain, rubbing, etc. from them. If you are a Bondi 2 fan, I see no reason not to continue on with the Bondi 3s.

                                    I have been running for over 30 years, and despite all the injuries, still love it. But my last marathon was over 5 years ago and for the last 18 months I haven't run at all due to patellar tendinosis. Couldn't get past 1/2 mile without searing pain. Yesterday, I saw an ad for HOKAs in a running magazine and went to my local RRS store and picked up a pair, having tried everything else to no avail. My first run this morning was 2 miles and miraculously pain free. Pain free. Wow...if the HOKAs come through in the long run, I will be a fan for life. The HOKAs take some getting used to. I have always run in Stability shoes due to some pronation, and the HOKAs are anything but Stability. I don't like walking in them. And, as many have said, the tongue and speed lacing aren't great. But standard laces are provided and I will try them for my 2nd run...fingers and toes crossed that it goes as well as this morning's amazing, epiphany-like experience.

                                      However, the tread wear is rapid and not durable, at least that is the case with my stride.

                                        With just 43 miles on these so far, it's hard to really know if they will reduce wear and tear on my legs/feet yet. Here's what's clear so far:

                                        - As other folks have said, the tongue is terrible. Couple that with the wire thin laces (since changed out) and they can be painful. Once I switched out the laces it is better, but they need a more substantial tongue in future releases.

                                        - My feet heat up far more than the Ghost 5/6s I've been running in for years now. Whatever material is being used is nowhere as breathable.

                                        - Despite their size, when running they feel very light.

                                        - The toe box is very wide. The upper material has to bunch up to get these to the correct tightness.

                                        - They feel very good and comfortable to run in. Most of my runs so far have been in the 5-8 mile range.
