Why We Like The HOKA Gaviota 4 Running Shoe

The Gaviota 4 Running Shoe delivers a pillow-soft ride for road runners who are willing to sacrifice some rebound for plush cushioning that keeps us trucking on our long hauls. An updated upper design features generous cushion on the tongue and heel collar for all-around comfort, while J-Frame technology prevents overpronation for stable strides.


  • Daily trainer for runners seeking maximum cushion and stability
  • Redesigned engineered mesh uppers are lightweight and breathable
  • Compression-molded EVA midsole minimizes impact and maximizes comfort
  • H-frame in the upper enhances midfoot lockdown for added support
  • Late-stage meta-rocker prevents flat-foot landing for smooth strides
  • Thick and durable rubber soles are built to hold up over time
  • Holds Seal of Acceptance by the American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA)

First and last pair

Initially very comfortable. Now less than a year later, they are falling apart. 95% used for slow (~18 min mile) walks 2 or 3 days week. I have shoes 2x as old that don't look this bad. They are literally ready for the dumpster.

These are the MOST!

These are the most comfortable and comfortable shoes I have ever had! I have tried so many expensive running shoes, walking shoes, nursing shoes.... These are the ones! I'm on my feet all day, I suffer with plantar fasciitis and a hammer toe. I can go so much longer without foot pain in these shoes. Buying more. Maybe stocking up in case they change them.

Inside liner

The shoe feels great to walk in but short lived with the inner lining falling apart quickly to expose plastic

Great cushy shoes!

Purchased these to replace a worn out pair of Arahi 4s, these are sooo, so much more soft and comfortable to run in! I'm mostly an interval runner on the treadmill but with these i've felt good about adding distance runs once or twice a week (outside even!) without feeling like my feet are taking a beating. fit is a bit wide on me but i just lace 'em up a little more than usual and i'm good to go. My Arahi 4's were an 8 but decided to go up half a size to 8-1/2, but i honestly feel like i should have stuck with an 8, Hokas really are true to size and that may account for the slightly loose fit...

Very comfortable but do not last long

I'm a healthcare worker and these shoes are very comfortable for my long shifts. I have only worn them at work. I've had them for 8 months now and they are already torn apart. There are holes and the back of the shoe is ripped apart. I really love them I just wish they lasted longer. They would be perfect if they didn't rip apart so easily and fast. I would also size down. They run a little big.

I am so disappointed..

This is my fourth pair of Hokas, and for the first time they are falling apart. The soles of the shoes are peeling away and the piece on the back has broken. I only use them at work and haven't changed what I do in over five years, so I know it's not me.

Good Shoe

I work events with long hours that require a lot of standing. When I first put my feet in the shoes, I thought these are the most amazing shoes ever. After a month of wearing them, they definitely aren't as comfortable as the first week. I didn't expect them to wear down this quickly. Overall, they are good shoes, I just didn't expect to have to purchase a new pair so soon.

Most comfortable sneaker ever

I love the Graviota, and my feet have never felt more comfortable, secure and stable. I can go anywhere in these shoes. But one issue, and it's a big one to me, is that these shoes are offered in either very light colors (that get dirty sooooo quickly) or, ugh, black. Please offer these in navy or dark gray by next season when I need to buy again.

Gaviota 4

The only issue I had with these was the toe box area wasn't quite as wide as I was hoping for, so I ended up exchanging them for the newly released Gaviota 5's since it was stated there was improvements made to the toe box area fit. Aside from this, the stability feature was pretty good in the 4's, which was an important feature for me and my semi flat feet and painful feet aggravated by SI joint condition and neuropathy. If you need a wide width due to painful foot conditions, this model may not quite meet the wideness you're hoping for. Or of you are normally a regular width, the wide width in this model may be just fine for you.
