First the Bondis are the road shoe for Hoka, the Mafetes are their trail shoe and the Stinson is a best of both worlds shoe. I have all three and they are all very different. The Bondis I would destroy on the trail and are too soft for the trail for me. But they are perfect for roads..I use them as my triathlon race shoes. I first bought the Mafetes for trail running and have fallen in love with them. The fit and durability almost makes you feel impervious to trail conditions. It's like going from a steel hardtail to a full suspension 29er. Great traction, all day comfort, I can't say enough. Next I bought the Stinsons since I run on mixed trail/roads sometimes and wanted to see how they felt. Good fit, a bit different from the Mafetes but solid. Then I bought the Bondis to use exclusively for triathlons and racing longer distances. They re softer than the other 2 shoes but a bit lighter as well. I don't worry about traction because they are road shoes.
Overall, I've never run in such comfortable and well fitting shoes. I do run barefoot on grass a bit each week but I wouldn't ever do it on a trail, or a road. I'm a mid to forefoot runner as well so it suits my style being a fairly low drop shoe. Not zero, but I don't want a zero drop...they do run a bit small..almost a full size so you'll have to adjust. Also they tend to run a bit narrow...which is great for my very arrow feet but not so good for someone with paddles for feet. And they re PRICEY! But they last...as long as your not taking your Bondi's on the trail that is..the tread is lest durable on them and longest lived and aggressive on the Mafetes.
Bought them at the Boulder Running Company where they routinely run out long before they even come in...every pair...every style. They can't keep them in stock long enough. Get the where and while you can!
