Hoka One Bondi
- The recommended price, according to manufacturers, for the new Hoka Bondi 9 will be $200.
- You will be surprised at the new features and design, which will be worth the price increase.
Arch Support and Pronation Control
- The new Hoka One Bondi 9 will be neutral running shoes.
- It will offer better support for neutral and higher arch types, with more plush cushioning.
- I would not recommend it for flat feet as a stability shoe.
- The Hoka One Bondi 9 will be designed for road running only.
- It is not recommended for trail walking or running.
- The new model will surely be a running shoe as the predecessor to be ideal for the avid runner.
- You can, however, also use it for walking and jogging.
- As it will be a road-running shoe, durability will be adequate.
- However, I recommend proper care and staying off wet surfaces and trails if you want to keep your shoes in tip-top shape.
