Taking things a step further is the latest HOKA One One Bondi running shoe, the HOKA One One Bondi 8. A top-of-the-line road running shoe, this comfort-centric rubber-soled Bondi 8 is ready for mild to moderate terrains. An elegantly designed billowing, foamy heel “crash pad” acts almost like shock absorbers for the foot, making this shoe great for smooth running even on classically hard city terrains, like paved running paths. The HOKA Bondi 8 has an official Seal of Acceptance from The American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA), proving that the foot health merits are not subjective.
The shoe is very accommodating for wider feet. Extra cushioning in the heel area beats the design of the HOKA Bondi 7. The outsole features 10 traction touchpoints as well as a center line touchpoint, all for safety on wet terrain. Although the official stance is that these shoes are for everyday runners, they definitely deserve a spot in a professional runner’s rotation, as well. They are extremely lightweight, weighing only 10.8 ounces. The cushioning inside and the impact cushioning can only be described as plush. As far as looks, this is a handsome shoe with sleek lines, available in four trendy color combinations. Even the branded HOKA logo on the sides adds a cool touch. Available in 16 sizes and half-sizes to accommodate everyone.
