Even though you’re not royalty (and you might not notice one pea under 20 mattresses), the Hoka One One Men’s Bondi 3 Runng Shoe ensures you won’t feel the run-ruining pokes and stabs from vicious bits of gravel or crumbling concrete on your early-morning runs through town. The plushness of this shoe makes running pleasurable, while a mere 4. 5mm heel-toe offset keeps your mid-foot focus firmly in place. With 2. 5-times more midsole volume that’s 30% softer than traditional running shoes, you’ll be running, not just walking, on the clouds. The redesigned upper uses Air Mesh to keep fresh air flowing across your toes without exposing your lower digits to potentially damaging road debris. Hoka’s proprietary midsole material, HIP CMEVA, dissipates up to 80% of the shock associated with heel-heavy gaits. Regardless of your running mechanics, be it a mid-foot or heel-strike gait, the high-performance cushioning in the Bondi 3 keeps you striding sweetly mile after mile. The Early Stage Meta-Rocker Geometry design helps the shoe roll with the particulars of your stride to economize your movements. Efficient running means you’re not wasting energy forcing the shoe to move, and instead, you can use that extra bit of zip to go a few more miles. The Fluid Ground Contact Design works in conjunction with the high-abrasion rubber sole to give you stability over the long haul. When you’re ready for a durable running shoe with a minimal heel drop and more cushioning than most pillowtop mattresses, the Bondi 3 will be your foot’s best friend.
