Hoka One One
Men's Bondi 7
The most cushioned road shoe in Hoka’s lineup Bondi 7 is the latest edition of the shoe that defined max cushioning in the running category. Bondi 7 delivers a well-balanced ride with a midsole that is one of the most cushioned around. It’s best suited for neutral runners and endures for nice long aerobic runs. It has a 4 mm drop and weighs in at 10.7 oz.
Running Niche Experience
We find the Bondi 7 fits true to size. This shoe is great for long aerobic recovery runs. With at stack height of 33 mm in the heel and 29 mm in the forefoot, the Bondi 7 packs a ton of cushioning in its compression molded EVA midsole. With an updated memory foam heel collar and re-designed TPU overlays the Bondi 7 a secure supportive fit with the help of the Active Foot Frame lets your foot sit down into the midsole. In addition, you will also find high abrasion rubber wear pads which makes this an excellent shoe to get you through your high mileage training weeks.
Geometry, Shaping and Cushioning Technology
Hoka’s technologies are actually a combination of several elements which result in a unique feel, the Hoka difference.
All Hoka’s have:
- The Meta-Rocker design which is a slight rocking feel as you roll over the midfoot and aids in propelling the runner forward.
- An Active Foot Frame: allows your foot to sit deep in the midsole and provides guidance to foot without the need for constrictions. It’s like a bucket seat that cradles the foot.
- Cushioned Midsole: marshmallow soft, Hoka’s midsoles are super light and offers great shock absorption, comfort and support.
- J-Frame: similar to the Active Foot Frame but instead adds support with a firmer density foam on the medial side where over pronating occurs. Found only in Hoka stability shoes like the Arahi 4.
Brand Description: HOKA ONE ONE
HOKA ONE ONE came to be in a moment of insight, on a mountain-top in New Zealand. Back home in Anecy, the founders set out to solve a simple problem, to make running downhill easier on the body, by rethinking the nature of running shoes. They succeeded and the Ultra Marathon world rejoiced. What they didn’t expect was that they’d solve a universal running problem… it’s not just running 50 miles downhill that is hard - all running is hard, and Jean-Luc and Nico just made it easier for everyone.
