Why We Like The HOKA Gaviota 5 Shoe

Stable and stiff used to go hand-in-hand but HOKA's Gaviota 5 Shoe is changing the game. The updated H-Frame technology allows the use of plush foam to keep our foot from rolling too much inward or outward without forcing an unnatural gait. This reimagined stabilization keeps the ride light, plush, and agile, while the Early-Stage Meta Rocker keeps us sailing into quick transitions.


  • Soft and stable running shoe for your long road miles
  • Mesh upper provides flexibility and breathability
  • 6mm drop encourages a natural gait and midfoot strike
  • H-Frame technology offers flexible stability
  • Generous stack of EVA foam provides a soft ride
  • Textured rubber increases durability and traction

They make a differenct

I went with a different color; the blue was bluer than I expected from the online pictures. So far, they've made a difference in the way my feet feel, in a good way. I have flat feet, and my podiatrist said that as we age the arch collapses further and spreads out the foot. So I needed arch support and a larger toe box. I also have arthritis in one toe, so I needed the extra cushioning. My podiatrist said he has these, and my sister also recommended (she has the Bondi). The rocking motion when walking takes some getting used to. I live in a cold winter climate, and most mesh coverings don't provide insulation, so there's that. Overall, I think I will be happy with them.

Best shoes I have ever owned!!!

I do a lot of Rucking and some running. These shoes fixed my knee issues. It also helped my plantar fasciitis!! This is my second pair and I absolutely love them.

I don't run much, too busy working. With my previous shoes , since I'm on my feet all day at work, about half way through my day, my feet would ache very bad. Now i can make it all and no pain. When i can i will get another pair.

Product fine, condition questionable

I bought a brand new pair of shoes for almost $200. They arrived with a stain and some shoelace damage. It was a chore to get reach someone to help with this issue. When I did they wanted me to pack up the shoes and ship them back, which I would expect. However I would have to wait for them to receive the shoes in order to get another pair, I'm guessing at least a couple weeks. In the end I decided to keep them because it was too big of hassle to ship them back and wait that long. Hoka should have inspected the shoes that had clearly been sent to someone before and returned. So I guess I bought used shoes instead of new. I do love this model though, super comfortable.

I would buy again

Love the shoes, most comfortable I've ever worn. I'm on my feet all day and love the cushioning. Only negative is that the pull tab frays very easily. Hoka replaced my shoes and the second pair are fraying as well.

I plan to buy another pair!

I had to try 2 other pair of shoes. First to shorr, 2 nd too wide. All three same shoe. Believe I got the fit that works. I walk 6 to 8 miles on 10" thick concrete at National Museum of Military Vehicles (NMMV) in Dubois, WY. Age 70. Love my Hoka's!

Great shoe. I'm flat footed and break down shoes quickly. Not these, and after six months going strong.
