The Bondi 2 continues in the Hoka One One tradition by providing unsurpassed cushioning, stability, and support, with a few key updates. The midsole thickness, rocker profile, and outsole are identical to the original Bondi, making the Bondi 2 an efficient, yet plush everyday trainer that remains a go-to shoe for runners seeking maximum performance.
- Improved Upper- Made from lighter and much more breathable mesh material significantly improves breathability.
- Ortho-Lite Sockliner- A cushioned, low volume Ortho-Lite sockliner provides more volume to accommodate a variety of foot widths.
- Heel and Tongue Loops- Larger heel and tongue loops allow for improved easy on, easy off access.
- Modified Ankle Cuff- Improved ankle cuff is softer and more pliable for an improved fit.

How it Works:
- Using a lower ramp angle (6 mm) and a rocker shaped, feather-weight midsole, the Hoka Bondi 2 reproduces conditions a barefoot runner experiences when running on grass or sand.
- The midsole is slightly lower to the ground than most other Hoka models, but the oversized midsole still absorbs any hard obstacle your foot may encounter, and once compressed, feather-weight EVA midsole springs back under your forefoot for increased acceleration.
- The Bondi 2's outsole features a rubber compound that is better suited for road surfaces, enhancing durability.
- The Bondi 2's upper has minimal seaming, reducing irritation.
- With 50% more surface area in contact with the ground, and a midsole that allows the foot to recess into it by almost one inch, the shoe provides protection, stability, and pronation control unmatched in stability running shoes.
How It Fits:
- The 2013 Bondi runs true to size, although they remain slightly more narrow than other Hoka models. For example, if you typically wear a size 9, you will need to order a size 9. The largest size available at this time remains size 14. If you plan on using orthotics, we strongly suggest ordering one half size larger than your typical size.
