Hoka’s Bondi B Shoe

by Kat » on Jul 18, 2013 20

These clonkers look like the OPPOSITE of barefoot running shoes!

Turns out they’re actually pretty lightweight and certainly have some perks, but would you wear these?

Learn more about the Hoka brand and let us know what you think in the comments below!

    At least, they’re fairly low drop?

    They are built for a purpose, long downhills during ultra marathoning. But no, I would not wear those ;)

    Funky looking. They look like they’d be huge drop, but they’re not. I wouldn’t buy these without trying them on, whereas I routinely by various minimals/lightweights/low-drops without a try-on.

    Woof. And people think the VFFs are ugly. That thing is going to show up in my nightmares. No thanks.

      Ha! So true. These bricks make FiveFingers look downright trendy!

    I’m not sure how I feel about them…I like the innovation but I’m not sure about the execution!

    I hate to pass judgment on something without trying it first, but I don’t think those shoes are for me!! Besides being bulky looking they seem heavy and uncomfortable. I don’t picture myself “flying” down any trails in those. Think I will stick with my current minimalist.

    These are actually much more “minimalist” feeling than you might think. Obviously it doesn’t offer any ground feedback but I feel more in control and more alive in a pair of Hokas then I ever did prior to going minimalist. Although I agree they are more crazy looking than a pair of FFS, they offer some serious benefits to endurance runners and are a dream when running up and down hills (not to mention the countless marathoners coming up with PRs due to Hokas). Keep an eye out on your local running stores, Hoka is running promotional events around the country allowing customers to take them out for a spin because so many runners are quick to judge them before giving them a go. These won’t replace my Skora Forms, FFS SeeYas, or my Merrell Trail Glove 2 but they will definitely take a spot in the rotation.

    Looks aside, doesn’t the impact force these “save” us from still hurt somewhere? Seems these would wreak long-term havoc to my hips.

      Jayden Kros / I enjoyed myself, but not “4.25/5″ enjoyment. The character growth is very minimal and character progression is something I really look for in a game. However, the gameplay and graphics cushioned the dianepointmpst.3.5/5, cap score for me.

      Can you let me know when tickets are available for this? It looks great! I found it as have been learning to play the saw for four years now and was looking for more info about it….

      You've done a nice job! I'm doing this challenge too and I got stuck on this particular one: Inspired by artwork. I just can't find something good enough and easy at the same time. You did great, though, congrats!
