Description

A road-runner that's better than ever.

Hoka One One knows not to mess too much with a winning formula, which is why the basics of the  Men's Bondi B 2 Running Shoe are essentially the same as those of the popular Bondi B. You will find it offers a lighter and more breathable upper, heel and tongue loops that are easier to grab, and softer fabric around the collar; underfoot, though, the Bondi B 2 features the same pillowy comfort and long-distance performance you've come to expect from this road warrior.

  • Closed mesh upper locks out dirt and debris while it allows for plenty of airflow so your foot stays cool
  • Thin, supple, microfiber-lined tongue conforms to your foot for ultimate comfort
  • Die-cut Ortholite insole backed with an additional 4mm of EVA offers comfortable support
  • Midsole foam is 30% softer than the foam material used in traditional running shoes and there's 1.8 times the volume of foam for cushioning
  • Extra cushioning dissipates up to 80% of the shock from heel striking and allows for as much as 20mm of sole compression to reduce impact on your joints
  • Bucket Seat heel and midsole pockets are recessed into the sole by 20mm so you feel planted with every step
  • Sole has a low heel-to-toe offset (4.5mm) and uses a rockered profile to encourage a rolling motion that leads to proper midfoot strike
  • Wide outsole provides lateral stability and plenty of surface area to keep you in contact with the road
  • Sticky rubber outsole features shallow 2mm lugs for fast yet secure footing

Makes the marathon miles more endurable

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

I'm 6'1", 200 lbs, and 50 years old. I was feeling increasing pain in my knees, hips and feet at 15+ miles. I resisted getting a pair of Hokas because, let's be honest, they look funny. But I've now completed 3 marathons in them and give them credit for reducing fatigue and pain in my legs and hips.

Unreal Shoe

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

I am a very experienced runner. That means I have been running several years and sometimes very high mileages per week (70 -100) in peak times. I have surrounded myself with Elite athletes from college football players, ultra runners, triathletes etc... I have done my research and done my time on the ground.

Knuckleheads like me eventually will develop over use injuries that just seem to nag from time to time. As time goes on the duration between these "nags" shortens until it's chronic.

After having some typical sore foot stuff (plantar, Achilles, peroneal tendon and top of foot pain (TOFP)) recently after doing an Ultra Endurance Weekend of a a 50 m Run , 110 Mile bike ride and a Half Iron-man Distance Triathlon.

Ditched my Nimbus 14s and hopped in these babies for a run. I ran 15 + miles at a sub 7 min pace without stopping ONE TIME TO STRETCH OUT some weird sore spot. After the run I felt like I just got off the couch. No leg fatigue or soreness AT ALL.

I contemplated diving further into he minimal scene but everywhere I look in that arena is wrought with injured people. Tons of them!

I never write reviews for products. But these thing are UNREAL.

Tried them all, minimal to maximal. Hokas are for me without question.

These things are really light too!!

didn't help my achilles

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

I bought these thinking they would relieve chronic achilles pain. I run @ 50 miles/week with a 20 mile long run. Actually aggravated my achilles a bit. Going back to Brooks.

Great during and after the marathon

Complete the first marathon in the Hoka One One Bondi B2s (30+ marathons completed overall, in 6 or more other running shoe brands). The shoes provided outstanding cushioning and support and felt as light weight as the Mizunos I've run in previously. I credit the Hokas with relatively speedy and painless recovery days after. Just as others have noted, I find a 1/2-size larger than my normal running shoe fits perfectly (running in Hoka size 11; normal running shoe is size 10.5)

Shoe lasts less than 100 miles

Really disappointed with Hoka

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've heard so many great things about Hoka that I had to try them - thought they might help my arthritic knees. The first 20 miles they felt awesome - really fun on rocky downhills. But well before 100 miles the right heel had totally collapsed and parts of the outsole had started to rip off. They were absolutely unrunable well before 100 miles. I don't know how a shoe that cost well over $1/mile to run in can be recommended to anyone. And some people had told me that these shoes were economical because of their long life. I guess you can't expect much endurance from a shoe that is made of such soft material.

Really disappointed with Hoka

Sounds like you're running on trails with a road shoe. I have a friend who did the same and experienced more wear and tear on the shoe than expected (though not at under 100 miles; closer to 200+ miles).

I agree with Keith. I have just over 300 miles on my Bondi 2's and other than wear at the midfoot, I haven't experienced anything like what you have experienced.

As someone who has diagnosed OA, these shoes have helped me go to over 700 miles in the last three months and then still feel "out of the box". I would recommend calling, emailing Hoka directly to see if they can help.

Keith and Running Monster: Thanks for the above comments. A Hoka Rep at a race I was at recommended this shoe. He told me that although it was designed for road would be great on trails. I got my money back and now I am being told the Hoka Stinson Evo is what I should try. Guess I'm not ready to shell out the $$ given past experience.

Great shoe

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

I love this shoe. I am 6'1 and 200 lbs. This shoe provides a ton of cushioning and seems to have helped me in my efforts to avoid heel strike and move to a more foward/quick turnover style of running. I had heard some criticism on these shoes that the toe box was too small, but I have not experienced this at all. I also run on Nike Pegasus and Voomeros, I have been working this shoe into my shoe rotation over the past few months and love it. Possibly the most important thing I can say is I notice a marked difference in how my legs feel after a long run (12+ miles) in these shoes as opposed to my Voomeros.

Love them and would buy again.
