Oh no, not good

My go to Hoka has been the Stinson ATR 6. In my opinion, this shoe is absolutely perfect or should I say was perfect? Sadly, I have been unable to locate a replacement pair so I started looking for an alternative. Unfortunately, I read too many reviews, that guided me to the Gaviota. This is so far from being a replacement for my Stinson ATR 6. There is very little arch support, minimal padding under foot, and insufficient heel grip or toe space. I've given up on trying to find an alternative and have reluctantly purchased the Stinson ATR 7. I just love that Stinson shoe, not a huge fan of the 7, but I think I can get used to it. Hoka: please please please, stop messing with your shoes. The Stinson ATR 6 was perfect, why did you change it? i'd buy five pairs of them if I could find them!

I preferred the feel of the Bondi 7 more than the Gaviota

They looked nice, but I felt off balance while wearing them. I also like the toe room that the Bondi provides and the extra plush feel.

Yes I would!

I'm 75 and walk 3 miles 3-4 times a week. This is my second pair of HOKA shoes and I love them. I don't wear the same shoe 2 days in a row, I have a total of 5 shoes, 2 pr Hoka and 3 others. I would only wear the hoka if I could afforestation.

I Will Wear These Forever!

This is my 2nd pair of HOKA (Gaviota) shoes. I don't run or even walk fast much anymore, but feet are important and HOKAs provide me with the support and cushioning that I need to be comfortable whether I'm walking on uneven ground or on hard surfaces. I've experienced what happens when I'm not wearing proper footwear so I will wear these forever.

Sadly disappointed in new fit

I wish Hoka kept the fit the same as the Gaviota 4. The Gaviota 5 are a MUCH wider fit (Medium width), so I am swimming in them, and not able to wear Hoka's anymore. I have had multiple foot surgeries and needed these stability shoes for daily use, and the Gaviota 4 helped me walk hundreds of miles so comfortably. Now I am stuck searching for a shoe that fits :-( Please Hoka, bring back the old fit!

Hurt my feet

I'm on my feet all day at work. I have flat wide feet. I thought these would help reduce the pain in my feet after walking at work for a 8hour or 12hour shift, but my feet still hurt with these. I gave them time to adjust, but no improvement. They're definitely true to size, look good, and feel good if not worn for extended periods of time.

Not the same as previous Gaviota and not supportive

This new version of the Gaviota is awful. I had the previous version and loved the support and fit, however, the material ripped (in under a year) and I needed a replacement. By this time, the version of the Gaviota I had was no longer available and I had to choose the new version. The new Gaviota looks very similar to the Bondi. I love the look of the Bondi but it did not support my feet properly. It seems like they took the Bondi and changed the name to Gaviota without adding the support elements needed. The Gaviota is no longer supportive, as it once was, and doesn't have the firm piece of materiel on the inside of the arch (to prevent collapse) as the previous version had. I now have a collapsed arch after wearing these shoes daily for the last two months. I am also just out of the 60 day window (by 7 days) and cannot return, according to the website. Going through the warranty return was a huge hassle, and customer service was terrible, but I am going to try to get some help. BEWARE if you liked the previous Gaviota version!

2nd Gaviota's I have purchased and it won't be the last!

These are the most comfortable shoes I have ever owned. I wish I could wear them all day, every day! I wear these for HIIT style workouts, weight training, walking and running and they feel great in everything I do.

The shoes work very well for walking

My husband bought me a size 6 when I ususally wear a size 5. However they do fit but the shoe has a very wide appearance. We call them my clodhoppers.
