HOKA Debut the Latest Generation Bondi 8Release: 4 August 2022
HOKA have introduced the latest iteration of their ultra-cushioning runner, the Bondi 8. Its major update sees the large foam midsole tweaked to be the smoothest ride yet for both runners and people looking for a little more plushness with each step. While a performance shoe first and foremost, the brand’s profile has crossed over into the sneakersphere thanks to choice collaborations with the likes of Bodega.
The overall formula is simply a breathable mesh upper connected to a ridged foam midsole, but there’s plenty of engineering that’s gone into its design. Its billowing surface results in an extended heel portion for extra bounce upon impact, dispersing it along the rest of the grooved lines. The outsole has also been updated with dermabrasion rubber for extended durability.
‘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.’,
The Bondi 8 is available now directly from HOKA.
