Designed for running on hard, man-made surfaces, the Bondi 5 gives you the cushiest of long rides, and just enough traction to let you wander onto light trails should the mood take.
The next iteration of the game-changing Bondi legacy, the ‘5’ is the most cushioned shoe in HOKA ONE ONE’s road specific lineup. With a more accommodating toe box, increased breathability and support, and better compression set, it delivers a smooth, cushioned and balanced ride.
The full-EVA midsole and early stage Meta-Rocker are topped off by an updated Comfort Frame upper and padded tongue, giving superior all around comfort.

3 years ago I suffered a partial tear in an Achilles tendon. My podiatrist instructed me to use the Bondi, and only the Bondi, no substitutes, as a walking shoe while the tendon repaired. I now street walk my dogs 5 km a day and the tendon is completely recovered, no pain, and the Bondi is still the only shoe I use for any significant distance.
As much as I want to love Hokas, they just don't fit my feet. I've tried the Tracer, Clifton 3 and Clifton 4 and honestly the Bondi 5 is the best fit of the lot around the widest part of the foot (without needing a wide fit). They feel like a normal cushioned trainer to run in but the legs and joints bounce back the next day in ways all other trainers prohibit.
