    Comments about Mens Hoka One One Bondi 4 Running Shoe:

    My local running shop recommended the Bondi 4 when I recently went to replace my shoes, and so far I am really glad they did.
    They are very comfortable, and provide a great amount of cushioning. As an older runner, the more of that I can get, the better. I did put my old shoes on just to walk around in, and they felt like I was walking on rock after wearing the Bondis.
    It took me several days to get used to the feel of the shoe when I went for a walk/run. I walk and run about 2 to 4 miles per day. The first few day, they felt good but it seemed like all that cushion was soaking up energy, and my legs tired quicker than usual. After about the third day with them, I think my stride adjusted and now they feel great, even on a long 5 mile walk.
    I haven't had them very long to comment on durability, but if they hold up, I'm definitely sold on Hoka.

      Comments about Mens Hoka One One Bondi 4 Running Shoe:

      For the runner or walker that needs cushioning, the Bondi 4 is the best shoe on the market. I have learned that it is the only shoe that works for me. So I love this shoe.

      I seriously hate the way Hoka does business though with respect to the shoes available in wide and the color choices. I put off purchasing these shoes longer than I should have because I wanted a specific color. I repeatedly checked the web page and called their customer service number waiting for the shoe to be available in my size and color. Finally I was told that the shoe would only be available in one color for my size so I caved and bought the shoes in that color. Is it a big deal? It is to me and it makes me wonder if this company is really interested in selling shoes.

      So I am happy with the performance of the shoes but I will switch brands in a heartbeat if another shoe maker offers something comparible. Hoka, get your act together, don't advertise choices that do not exist!

          Comments about Mens Hoka One One Bondi 4 Running Shoe:

          The Bondi B 4 is a excellent all around shoe, it is a road shoe but does equally well on trails. It says for light trails but I live in red rock country and have some of the roughest trails anywhere and the Bondi does just fine. Much more responsive that the Stinson ATR and much lighter also. It is much more stable that the Speedgoat. The Challenger ATR does not provide the Hoka roll I love plus after 100 miles the Challengers flattened out and the cushioning was gone. I do 90 percent of my running on trails and the flagship Bondi B4 is by far the best shoe in the Hoka line.

          By The Hollywood Hills Kid

          from Burbank, California

          Comments about Mens Hoka One One Bondi 4 Running Shoe:

          I run primarily on dirt trails, but run on sidewalks to proceed to and return from the trails. I am old and slow, but not too big.

          The "wide" version is greatly appreciated. If you compare the width of the soles of the EE version of some other brands with the width of the soles of their D version, you don't find much difference. (There is just more material in the upper.) This shoe is a true "wide"; I didn't have to upsize to obtain sufficient toe room.

          "Heel striking" has recently been castigated as the antithesis of "natural running." (I have often wondered why, if "natural running" is so natural, why it has to be taught or learned in running classes.

          This may be the one shoe that acttually does facilitate "natural running." I don't heel strike; I naturally (with ample cushioning) roll from my heel to midfoot to toes.

          Great Update, Fixed the 2 Issues with the Bondi 3

              I am 6'2, 195. I am an athlete but not a great long distance runner. If you are a "bigger or heavier" runner or have injury problems from running, do yourself a favor and get these. (I used to run in Asics Nimbus and Nike Pegasis, and these have A LOT more cushioning than any Asics or Nike running shoe).

              I have run in the Hoka 3s, Clifton 1, and now Bondi 4. This Bondi 4 fixed the 2 problems with the 3:

              1) Uncomfortable tongue - They now made it soft and it is much more comfortable. They fixed the weird laces that were in the 3 too.

              2) Weight - I weighed my Bondi 3 & 4. For my size 14 shoes, the Bondi 4 was 1oz less.

              Great update, you are saving my knees each time I run in these. Thank you!

              This is my third pair of Bondis. I've had Bondi 2, 3, and now 4. My favorite has been the 2, but the side in the material wore out too fast. I am 5 7", 195 lbs, and am 53 years old and have been running for over 30 years. I have flat, wide feet and use neutral shoes. I have been wearing a half size up in Hoka, but my only complaint is the Bondi 4 fits too narrowly as compare to previous models. I still recommend highly.

                I average about 2 miles a day walking. Plantar fasciitis shut me down on walking, but these shoes have enough cushion and support that I got back on the road and am walking comfortably.

                My main complaint is that they are starting to wear out after 7 months of use. In fact, a plastic tab has broken through the fabric in the heel area making them unusable at this point. The warranty language makes it sound like this may not be covered since it not likely a manufacturing defect. Conflicted as to whether it is worth sending them in for consideration of a warranty replacement. Good shoe, just wish it would hold up better.

                These are a very welcome addition to the Hoka lineup. I had previously used the Mafate 2,3,and 4 because they were the only ones that came close to having the toe box width to accomodate my funky bunions and orthotics. These Bondi 4 wides are great. The width is perfect, and the cushioning feels more like the Mafate 3, as opposed to the noticably stiffer Mafate 4. I've only run with them on pavement and the treadmill so far, but I think they'd be fine on non-technical trails.
                My only gripe is that rubber on the sole could be a bit thicker, as they are already showing a decent amount of wear after about 25 pavement miles. Some of this may be due to a goofy gait caused by the aforementioned funky bunions, so your mileage may vary :-).

                  Comments about Mens Hoka One One Bondi 4 Running Shoe:

                  Bought these to replace a pair of Bondi 4 standard width shoes. Absolutely loved the regular width pair; I'd struggled with plantar fasciitis for about a year (and tried most every treatment)and dropped off from running 30 miles/week to running about 6/week and hurting the whole time. Tried these on the advice of a friend who said they helped him a lot while rehabbing a knee injury. The Hokas made an amazing difference; back up to previous distance and speed within about a month of using them, with almost no pain! After a month, though, I noticed rubbing on the 5th toe on both feet, though I'd never had trouble with this in regular width shoes before. Decided to try the wider version, and this has solved the problem; they are wide enough to prevent rubbing without being too wide.
                  These are absolutely great shoes; very soft but supportive, and surprisingly light-weight. They are well worth a try, especially if you have any foot or knee pain with running. They do seem to run slightly narrow and about 1/2 a size small,however, so plan accordingly.
                  The cloth on the shoe upper is a bit delicate, especially for a shoe this price. They may wear out a little faster outdoors (I'm usually on a treadmill). They are also not the most stylish shoes; perhaps HOKA can get a designer to work on the appearance, or at least maybe shrink the logo down a little!

                  The cover and durability are 100 times better than my old pair. I have plantars fasciitis and the wonderfully improved near orthopedic sole supports me like a glove.

                  I've been wearing Hokas for years before they were popular and they have always been consistantly a high quality shoe. I have run over 1,000 miles on tough trails with the same pair. They have always stood by their product and will replace or refund your money if you're not happy. Great company!

                  Training for an ultra run in april. Need to log many miles. I have been in Cliftons, which I still race tri's in. Both shoes do a good job od protecting my old legs, burt the Bondi's even more so.

                    I am 5'9", 150 pounds and run 2-3 times a week between 5-10km per run. I had the Clifton 2 shoes and loved them, but the sole didn't last too long (less than 300 miles), so wanted to get a Hoka model that had similar cushioning, but more rubber on the sole. I initially tried the Stinson 3 because it had a fully rubberized sole, but I got blisters on my arches (see my other review for it), ended up exchanging them with the Bondi 4, which has been great. I have run in them twice, each 5k, and got a little blister on the top of my foot, by the toes; I think the material on the upper where it folds as I push off is rubbing a bit. The shoe comes with two insoles; one regular insole and another flat insole to be used with orthotics (maybe you have the 3/4 type) or to be used with the regular insole to take up a bit more space, for narrower feet. I will try removing the flat insole and see if that makes the difference. Other than that, the shoe has similar cushioning (just a tiny bit less cushioning/soft compared to the Clifton 2) and hopefully the sole will last longer. So far, I am liking the shoe!

                    I have diabetic neuropathy in my feet. I run my own business and am on my feet on concrete lab floors all day. My feet were getting so sore that my wife would have to rub them each night. These shoes were recommended by a patient and have reduced the pain by 50%. I am extremely happy. They are worth every penny.

                    I've had foot surgery to repair severed tendons & ligaments in foot and COULD NOT find any athletic shoes to fit nor ware that did not create foot pain or discomfort. I started shopping on the internet and found HOKA athletic shoes... I then looked for a local retailer and found Sole Perfection in federal way, WA.
                    I went to this store tried on several athletic shoes from Brooks, Adidas, Nike and a few others. I put on the BONDI 4 and OMG.. This shoe is the most comfortable, cotton soft, breathable, arch supporting shoe I have ever purchased. If your aging, your feet hurt and you need comfort BUY THESE SHOES... I'll never buy another brand athletic again.. Expensive, yes but, when you put these on your pain floats away.... THANK YOU HOKA!!!

                    The only running I have left in me is if I need to run for my life. Bad hip and knee, and I work retail as a second job for fun. Needed something that would reduce impact and give me a high level of cushion, for my 4-6 hour shifts on my feet.

                    While the online chat left a lot to be desired in terms of product knowledge for my need, I threw the dice and ordered.

                    Glad I did, these have really helped reduce discomfort for my issues.

                      Comments about Mens Hoka One One Bondi 4 Running Shoe:

                      I wrote my first review of the Bondi 4 about four months ago, after putting about 150 miles on mine. At the time I was impressed with the durability, and that absolutely did not change. I finally retired my first pair after 400-ish miles, by FAR the most mileage I've gotten from a pair of running shoes. Of course, I immediately bought another pair to train in. The Bondi are a bit too heavy to race in (for my taste), but as a training shoe it doesn't get any better. Plus, needing a different shoe for race day is the perfect "excuse" to buy a pair of Claytons or Cliftons, right?

                        These shoes are surprisingly comfortable and look great. They are lightweight and have a lot of cushion for a fat guy like me!!

                        I'm a 250lbs guy who enjoys running. I was looking for shoes that were comfortable for someone my size, and I love these shoes. If you're a bigger person or just want a lot of cushioning that really makes a difference, then I definitely recommend these shoes. I literally stay on the treadmill 30 mins longer because my feet don't hurt at all with these on.

                            I have been a runner for 50 years, never having any running issues until late 2014 when I experienced plantar fasciitis in my right foot. After 5 months off the trail, I wanted to find a more well cushioned shoe than the ones that I had always bought. Bondi 4's was my choice. I am on my 3rd pair.

                            I have run my Bondi 4's in my first marathon and I continue to run non-technical trails, hybrid trails, pavement and concrete. I have 150 miles on them so far and the wear is minimal.I am 185 lbs with patello femoral issues. I pronate so I use orthotics. I also have Conquest 1 & 2, Clifton's, Valor and Bondi 3. I depend on the soft cushioning in the Bondi's as compared to the RMAT in the Conquest's, since the Conquest's RMAT midsole is too firm and I am forced to heel strike. Outsole - The positioning of the soft and hard pods (i don't know the right terms so bear with me!) is brilliant. I like the positioning of the lugs for traction where its needed for dirt in the front and aft. For the pavement/concrete I land on my forefoot/midfoot and the softer pods cushion the initial impact. The forefoot soft pods wear a little more than the rest of the shoe, but the hard pods are still hardly worn. Midsole - Very cushy, not as cushy as the original Cliftons EVA, just a tad firmer, but not rock hard like the Conquest RMAT. In other words it doesn't bottom out, and just enough springy-ness to encourage a good recovery stride. This is what helps me to run long distances, the shoe is absorbing the shock. The rocker really helps with my cadence and stride, if you work with it you get a great ride! Upper - Awesome, great looking, great fitting and easy to adapt the laces to customize the fit. This was a huge improvement over the Bondi 3. I have never got blisters in Hoka's so the fit is really great. I hope Hoka keeps this shoe around, because there are us who need the cushy ride to save our knees and hips to run another day! Really if it were not for Hoka's, running would be painful and not much fun.
