        Don't know what hoka did with these new bondi 3's but they are night and day from the 2's that I fell in love with. I get terrible rubbing in weird spots - inside and top of big toe and the tongue ... Forget it. I also swear they made the toe box narrower in these vs. the 2's. The only plus of these is the new sole - it seems to last longer. The bondis used to be my go-to for long runs on the road, now I'm back to the Stinson tarmacs (the "lite" version, which sadly RRS does not carry). Yuck.

            I've only been using the Hoka One One Bondi 3's for a few weeks, but have done several road runs with them and so far I really love them. I have had ongoing problems with my feet due to high mileage, but I may have found the right shoes to get me back up to the mileage without the pain!

                After more than 30 years of virtually injury-free running, the niggling heel pain developed from an occasional soreness to excruciating pain just two months before my first marathon in 29 years. I was desperate until my Brother recommended trying these. I've worn Mizuno Wave Creations for 7 years and always found them cushioned enough but these are something else again. Within a week things started getting better and now 4 weeks later its no more than an ache at worst. A co-worker had the same experience a few years ago so definitely recommend them if you're having the same problem.

                Really liked the Bondi 2. The new Bondi 3 is much larger. The tongue is barely padded making it uncomfortable to cinch down the laces. The collar rubs the bottom of my ankles. They will be returned to RRS.

                      I love the cushioning on this shoe but will have to return them because of the sizing. I wear a 9 in street shoes and normally wear a 10 in my running shoes depending on the width. I tried on a 9.5 in a store and they were too big. I ordered a 9 and they don't fit right. A little too tight in the toebox and too big in the heel. Also, whenever I wore white socks the tongue turned the sock magenta.

I wear a 9 in street shoes and normally wear a 10 or 9.5 in running shoes depending on the width. I heard that the Hoka One runs large so I tried on a 9.5 at a store and it was too big. I ordered a 9.0 and they are snug in the toe box and a little roomy in the heel. I ran in them a few times and got hot spots at the 4th miles every time. Also, every time I wore white socks, the tongue turned my socks purple.

                        Seems like a cheaper shoe than the Bondi 2.
                        Tongue and top of shoe much less comfortable than Bondi 2. My Bondi 2's fit well but the Bondi 3's rub the bottom of my ankles. With the unpadded tongue, lacing them tight enough not to shift on your foot makes for an uncomfortable top of the foot.

                        Too cushy? If there was such a thing, the cushiness would make it hard to push off and run up hills. My husband bought these because he wanted me to have an easy ride. Truth is they make me work harder. I did the LA marathon in them and ran slow but had no pain afterwards. If you're looking for a shoe to baby you, this might be it but don't even think about speed.
                        Also, get your actual shoe size. They are really big so you won't need to go up a half size. Width is fairly wide so they're great if you have ugly painful bunions.

                          Sizes are tricky, so having RoadRunners to guarantee exchange/return is a way to go. I have really low arch with wide feet and always have to order Wide or one size up for dress shoes. My favorite so far is Brooks Arial 12 and wanted to try Hoka for cushioning. Normally I would order 9 Wide, but 8 1/2 fits well for me. First heel felt too open and it was not wide enough, but after breaking it in for a while (a lot longer than Brooks), it finally felt right. Hope this works for you, but probably not for everybody.

                          I've been running on the Bondi II (size 9.5) and love them. Got the Bondi III (size 9.5) and they were huge. Didn't fit at all and was very disappointed.
                          Live in San Diego so went to the RoadRunner store to try on different Hokas as the cushion has really helped keep me running. The different styles are sized inconsistently, so a size 9 in one style is not the same fit in another, you really need to try them on.
                          Ended up with the Bondi III (size 9). I'm keeping my fingers crossed these work out. I wish Hoka could get a better handle on the sizing so there is more consistency.

                              I'd heard many good things about the Hoka One One. I was really pumped about getting a pair only to be very disappointed that it was way too big. I ordered my shoe size 7.5, and it felt a whole size too large. Also, the vinyl in the toe area didn't feel very comfortable when I walked around the house. My friend just got the Stinson Trail model in a 7.5, and they fit me perfectly. There is more of the mesh fabric in the toe area. So I'm exchanging for a pair of those.

                                Comments about Womens Hoka One One Bondi 3 Running Shoe:

                                I normally wear an 8.5 in most running shoes, although I recently had a size issue with Asics Gel Kayano 20s, and a 7.5 or 8 in street shoes. I ordered the new Bondi 3s in an 8 (directly from Hoka because RRS was out of my size in the pink/orange), because reviews on the earlier models said that they ran big. These run really big. I probably could have gone with a 7.5, but, for me, the bigger issue is that they are really wide. First, I had to cut and remove the lacing system because I couldn't get them tight enough and I wanted to use the second eyelet at the top to help cinch my feet in to keep them from slipping around. That still wasn't enough to get them tight enough, so I was wearing two pairs of socks. Finally, last night, I put a second flat insole in under my orthotic insole (which is thicker, btw, than the Hoka insole), and that seemed to do the trick, although my feet seemed to be less stable - probably due to not sitting down as far in the shoe. Other than the width issue, they are incredibly comfortable, I have run about 75 miles in them so far - 14 miles today alone. My metatarsal pain is nonexistent in these shoes! After saving up, I'm going to try another style of Hokas to see if they are more average in terms of width. I have an average foot, even with a bunion on my right foot, never come close to needing a narrow in shoes, so I am flummoxed by the width on these. I don't know who their model was, maybe they used a male foot model, because there is no way that the average female foot is this wide.

                                  I just received these and think I'm going to love them, once I get the right size. They are a full-size larger. I usually wear an 8 and I need a 7, so once I get the right size, I think my feet will be very happy for my morning runs/walk and running on the treadmill when it's -10 below!

                                    Have been on a quest to find comfortable running shoe for years. My search has come to an end! Took my new Bondi 2's out for a 14 mi test run and experienced none of the issues I've had with the numerous shoes tried over past 5 years. Let me first tell you I am an older, slow runner, precisely, 58 years old and a run/walk pace of 12.00-14.00. Marathon PR 5:06 and Half Marathon 2:26. I couldn't believe how effortless the first 5 miles were, the second 5 miles pain free, and last 4 miles easier to complete than most runs half the distance. My pace was faster than my normal best long run pace of 12.00. One observation on fit.....I wear a size 8 1/2-9 street shoe, size 10 running shoe. I ordered a 9 1/2 and they fit perfect. Nice room in toe area.

                                    This is my second pair of Hoka One One's so I have the BondiB2 in my line-up of shoes. I like the cushioning of this shoe for long runs and also wear on recovery runs. The B2 fits better than this version. My biggest complaint is with the upper and how it fits. Compared with other brands this shoe has too much room in the upper portion of the shoe, although I do have narrow feet. My next complaint is the laces. I don't even attempt to use the lace locks and the laces provided to replace seem skimpy. You must run in these shoes 2-3 times a week because they cause fatigue in muscle groups that other shoes don't engage...All in all, these shoes provide lots of cushion and given their size are fairly light but a good 2-3 ounces heavier than other brand's cushioned models. I run 30-35 miles a week and find these shoes keep my feet fairly happy over the long distance.

                                          I ordered these in my usual size which is 8.5. I normally wear Brooks Pure Flow. I received these and was astonished to see how HUGE they were. At least 3 fingers to long and very wide. Though I was expecting them to be wider than my normal trainer.

                                          I called up customer service, which was awesome by the way :) and got a new order on its way. They were already out of stock but got lined up for a new order on the next restocking.

                                          I got my shoes today, which was awesome as they are like a week earlier than anticipated. But alas they are still to big. I ordered down to a 8 and they are still way to long. I might try these with my cushiest socks and see how it works out for a run, but I am pretty sure I will have to return for the next size down as I prefer to run in my swiftwick socks which are fairly thin.

                                          I am not sure if I will try again for a 7.5

I did wear them around my office and loved the comfort and roll from heel to toe they had as you stride. This is my first pair of Hoka's so we'll see how they perform once I can run in a pair that isn't too big on me.
