Hoka One One’s Bondi is the king of cushioning in its family of maximalist-style shoes. The RW Shoe Lab measured the Bondi to be extremely soft compared to most shoes tested, and wear-testers couldn’t stop gabbing about the shoe’s incredibly plush midsole. “This type of shoe was new to me,” said a tester. “I’ve never run in Hokas or other shoes with a lot of cushioning, but I was thoroughly impressed. The foot strike took some getting used to, but I found that my feet and legs weren’t as tired as usual.”
Clydesdales runners will appreciate how their feet won’t sink into that undesired territory of squishiness and wear; the full-EVA midsole is highly durable and can handle a heavy step. “I expected the cushioning to wear down,” said a tester. “But even though these were the only shoes I was using, they still felt as soft as when I first tried them.”
A major change for the Bondi is the redesigned rubber outsole to reduce weight (our shoe lab measured the trainer to land middle of the pack) and improved durability. Testers familiar with the brand’s shoes found the change a positive upgrade. “The outsole is a big improvement from original Hokas I tested several years ago,” said a tester. “There is very little wear after a month of testing. This traction pattern seems to work best on light gravel and smooth surfaces.”
For runners looking for an ultra-cushioned road shoe, the Bondi 7 delivers a plush ride without a weight penalty.
