I have Bondi Evo shoes and I like them as well, but these are even better. They are true to street size, are a little lighter, and a little narrower than the Evos. I am a former runner with serious arthritis/plantar fascia issues. I used to wear shoes like Brooks Radius and Asics Nimbus and I would buy them 1/2-1 size larger than street size. With this Kailua model I have even better cushioning and no pain at all. If you have such issues or are looking for an ultra-marathon shoe with a narrower foot, this may well be the shoe for you as well.

Not wide enough for my feet, need to have wide sizes available, poor arch support, very disappointed and will have to return them. Very expensive shoe considering it's made in China.

I took these out of the box and did a full marathon! I have horrible foot issues and was so excited. I then did my first 50k 2 weeks later, a half two weeks later, a half and 10k in the same weekend and another half and all in 8 weeks of buying my shoes! Bravo!

I have been waiting anxiously for my turn to write this review. This is a great shoe. Way more comfortable than Asics or Nike. If you work all day on your feet, this is for you. I am a PE teacher, and also had a recent ankle injury. It feels very stable and cushioned. I did the sizing as instructed per Hoka One One web site, and it worked perfectly. It is a little bit ugly in looks but if you are looking for comfort this it.

I walk several half marathons a year even though I have some foot pain. These were the most comfortable shoes I have had even right out the box. With my orthotics they are as close to perfect as one can get and foot pain is virtually gone. I got them 3 weeks ago and have cut more than a minute per mile off my time. I'm hooked. I wish toe box was slightly bigger to accommodate my extra long second toe without bruising but that happens with almost every shoe.

Perfect, absolutely perfect! Runs (no pun intended) true to size. Running in them is wonderful; plenty of room in the toe without having any foot movement, very lightweight. The extra cushioning gives bounce to my step. I bought these after my husband bought a pair and would not stop raving. I clearly see why. A premium price but a terrific value.
