REVIEW: HOKA Bondi 8 Road Running Shoes

Written By: SportsShoes

One of the hardest working shoes in the HOKA line-up, the Bondi 8 takes a bold step forward this season, reworked with softer, lighter foams and a brand-new extended heel geometry. Taking on a billowed effect, the rear crash pad affords an incredibly soft and balanced ride from heel strike to forefoot transition.
