Hoka Bondi BIt’s official.  It’s going to take a pretty awesome shoe to get me out of my Hoka One One Bondi B.  I’m planning on getting the Maffette next week for our hill runs.  The sole has a harder surface that I think will be better for the hill runs and not wear out the sole on my Bondis as quickly.  Of course with the Bondis you have about 3/4 inch of sole to go through.  I’ve heard people concerned about tread wear on the Bondis.  But really, how much tread do you need on a road run.  I can’t remember a time, when there is no ice, on the asphalt that I slipped because of tread wear.  As long as I have the cushioning and there is no hole leading to the foot, I’m good.

If you’ve purchased a pair of Hokas I’d love to hear your thoughts on them.  I’ve rarely heard of read a bad review on these shoes.  I’ve got over 200 miles on mine so far and there is at least a couple hundred more in them.

    My Bondi Bs arrive today… I’m looking forward to trying them out. After this weekends marathon, I plan on putting these through the test as I prepare for my first ultra in January. I’ll post first impressions and updates as I get to put some miles in them.

    That’s great. How did they work out for you? I’m wearing the Stinsons right now. Trying to decide if I like them or the Bondi Bs better. Let me know how the training goes.
