INTRODUCTION

CUSHIONING

  • Soft EVA Midsole runs the full length of the shoe, offering enhanced cushioning and support.
MIDSOLE
  • Soft EVA Midsole runs the full length of the shoe, offering enhanced cushioning and support.
  • Control Bucket Seating recessed within the midsole to position the foot for optimal control.
UPPER
  • Closed Mesh on the upper prevents debris from entering the shoe while maintaining breathability to keep feet cool and dry.
  • TPU Support Strapping are flexible overlays providing a reinforced secure fit.
OUTSOLE
  • Sticky Rubber Compound increases traction on wet surfaces.
  • High Abrasion EVA is lightweight and durable enough to double as an outsole.

Comments: I had to send a pair back due to horrible, excessive wear on the outsole. I hoped it was a fluke, so ordered other pairs when the price dropped because I do LOVE the cushioning and the broad platform for my wide feet. However, sad to say, the replacement Bondis wore even faster than the first pair!! I'm talking about less than 5 weeks of primarily fitness walking (with occasional jogging on grass), no more than a total of 105 miles, and in places the outer sole is down to the mid-sole! (I am 5'5", 128 lbs).

Comments: While I love the fit and feel of these shoes, I am very disappointed in the quality of the product. After 150 miles, there are three holes in the forefoot of each shoe. This is not normal wear and tear, but seems to be a flaw in the material used.

Comments: Tread wear is awful. Owned shoe 4 weeks and only wore casually--tread is separating! Can't believe it!
