Eight years isn’t an especially long time in general, but in certain fields, performance athletic gear being one of them, eight years can feel like a generation ago. In 2011, running footwear design was in the midst of minimalist, “free” running mania, when a nascent footwear company defied the conventional wisdom of the moment, and debuted so-called maximalist cushioning. The exaggerated outsole required to accommodate the extra cushioning made for a unique, distinctive, appearance. While comment section debates raged, there was no arguing with the amount of active runners who quickly came to swear by Hoka shoes.
The lightweight, ultra cushioned, Bondi B from 2011 is revived for Spring 2019, with a limited edition reproduction of the original model.
