HOKA unveils the all-new Bondi 8 – One of the hardest working shoes in the HOKA lineup, the Bondi 8 takes a bold step forward this season. 

The ultra-cushioned Bondi 8 is reworked with a softer and more resilient foam, plus a brand-new extended heel geometry.

This rear crash pad features a billowed design that lends an incredibly soft and balanced ride from heel strike to toe-off.

Why you’ll love it:The perfect blend of soft and bouncy, the Bondi 8’s superior cushioning provides a distinctly different ride.

Also focusing on new sustainability enhancements, the Bondi 8 includes recycled content in the engineered mesh, eyestay lining,  Ortholite® Hybrid sockliner, and tongue. The update’s perfect blend of soft and bouncy is sure to add to the legacy of the game-changing Bondi franchise. 

“The Bondi 8 is an exceptional update to one of our most-loved franchises,” said Gretchen  Weimer, Vice President of Product at HOKA.

“The ample cushioning HOKA fans demand from the Bondi is still front and centre, but the revamped midsole foam will make for a new dimension in comfort and ride quality. We’re certain that these tactical updates will satisfy both new and old  Bondi fans with the best iteration yet.”
