I have two pairs of the Bondi 6 and I'm not 100% satisfied with the fit. I also have a three year old pair of Bondi 4 which fit better and feel less clunky. I'm going to be returning back my backup pair of Bondi 6 for a refund because I just can't see using this shoe very much. The Bondi is not very good for running because of the thickness, bulk, and weight. I prefer the Clifton 6 for road running and I love the Mafate Evo 2 for trail. I also recently purchased the Carbon Rocket for quick runs and the Torrent for shorter trail runs. These last two shoes I haven't run in but they fit good and they're built good. The Bondi series is better for walking.

I was lucky, as the code for me came instantly. I wonder if there might be some delay and it will eventually come through.

Good feedback on the Bondi6. I like them, and find that after 4-5 runs they break in a bit, and when I get in a little better shape, they don't feel as heavy, but they still do feel heavy and clunky. I can't really do any speedwork in them, but the cushioning ensures I am not sore after a run.. I had a pair of Clifton6's and they felt great, springy and lighter. Unfortunately, they were just a bit narrower than the Bondi6's, and were too tight in upper foot. I had to return them. I did try on the Clifton6's in a wide, and they were perfect! But, they don't go on sale often, if at all.

I own Torrent 2's. They are great, and fit me fine. I am super curious about the Mafate Evo and Mafate Evo 2.

Question for you, do you know if the Mafate Evo 2's would have a similar width to the Bondi6, or a little narrower like the Clifton6? I know this may be hard to answer if the Cliftons aren't narrow for you like they are for me.

I've run about five times in my 1st pair of Bondi 6. I've noticed that version 6 has more volume in the heel and midfoot are of the upper and I have low volume thin feet that are neither wide or narrow. As a result the Bondi 6 does not provide adequate arch support for my right foot. So I have to use an orthotic insole to make the Bondi 6 even palatable as a running and walking shoe. The Bondi 4 has no such issue. While I do concur that the Bondi series provides good protection for feet on road and concrete the heaviness of the shoe ends up making my hamstrings sore near the inner part of my thighs. I feel this straining fatiguing pain near the end of my 5mi runs. I can't imagine going any further than 5 miles with the Bondi because it just feels heavier the further I go.

The Clifton 6 is narrower and tighter in the upper near the middle of the foot. But switching to thin socks and carefully adjusting the laces gives me a good fit with the D width. I use Injini Lightweight socks.

The Mafate Evo 2 is the best shoe I have ever had, road or trail. It has more width than the Clifton 6. The review impressions at RoadTrailRun were spot on. Compared to the Torrent the Mafate Evo fits better, like a glove, and feels more stable. The weight distribution of the Mafate is perfectly balanced. The upper material, "Matryx" , stays dry. I ran through a stretch of wet grass and my feet didn't get wet despite the airy openness of the upper which almost looks like it's made out of black window screen material. The traction is very grippy and the transition through the toe off is silky smooth. The Mafate did not require any breaking in.

The Torrent seems like a nice shoe but it's upper seems more traditional compared to the Mafate. Less of a glove-like fit with more volume.

Remove the * in 27366. That's what tripped me up, too. I'm not sure what the * is about? Maybe the OP can explain where that * in the short code came from, but if you remove the *, it works. Text 27366 to EBALERTS

Great feedback! Thank you. My first pair of Hoka's were Bondi5 and I do think there were enough changes in the Bondi6 that resulted in this experience of clunkiness and weight for me. Fortunately, they happen to fit me well.

The Torrent 2's were my first trail shoes. I am so pumped that now when I run trails, my toes don't jam on downhills! I do agree there is space in the toe box, and so my next purchase will be the Mafate Evo 2's....oh and maybe some Clifton6's in wideSmilie

My feedback is the Bondi 6 is an awesome shoe for heavier people like me (6'2", 243). I have also had the Gaviota 2 and the Clifton 4. I generally buy a new Hoka every six months because the padding wears out. If you search online, the durability of the base foam is the only complaint about Hoka. They're generally praised shoe company.

My other tip is, if you're the type that likes listening to music while running, chances are you are a loud Big Foot while running. I hear it all the time at the gym. Kelly Starrett likes to say, hear the pain you're putting yourself through. No shoe can withstand military combat boot up down marching runs. Ive gotten a lot fewer injuries ever since I followed this advice and now I run like a gazelle, with light foot steps.

I copied the information from the website's email exactly as it was. I think it was just an indication of additional information at the bottom of the page. I removed it from the original post. I didn't use the * when I tried it and I didn't have issues receiving the code.
