Can one shoe be perfect for marathon racing and also for racing your local Olympic distance triathlon? Hoka One One's answer to that is, Yes. The HOKA ONE ONE Bondi Speed 2 Running Shoe is lightweight, but features more cushioning than the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man. With a midsole foam that is 30% softer than regular EVA and 2.5 times more volume than in most running shoes, you'll feel as good at mile 20 or after putting in a tough bike leg as you would going out for an easy Sunday run.
The Meta-Rocker midsole geometry and low heel-to-toe drop allows you to run as naturally as if you were running shoeless through the forest and the speed laces mean you'll be in and out of T2 before you know it. Are they a training shoe, a triathlon shoe or a marathon racing shoe? The answer is yes.
