Read our review of the HOKA Gaviota 4


Slip into comfort with the supportive HOKA Gaviota 4.

The Gaviota is HOKA’s premium stability shoe and this version continues the plush tradition. HOKA uses its J-Frame™ support, which is a firmer foam that wraps around the medial (or inside) side of the foot and around the heel in a J-shape to give support when you need it. This is a shoe designed for individuals who excessively overpronate or have flexible arches.

Roll through your stride thanks to HOKA’s late stage Meta-Rocker that gives you a smooth ride and forefoot support. The Gaviota is HOKA’s maximum cushioned stability shoe, giving you the ultimate in comfort, step after step. In our HOKA Gaviota 4 review, one tester said “I like the tall stack of cushion underfoot. The feeling of the foam is soft, but it’s stable as opposed to smushy. The result is a ride that’s soft and protective but highly stable.”

HOKA retooled the upper of the Gaviota to make it more luxurious and comfortable than ever. The ventilated mesh upper is lighter and more supportive compared to previous versions of this shoe. It features a midfoot H-Frame that increases upper support and midfoot lockdown. Designers added cushioning around the heel collar and tongue to provide for a better step-in feel. Plus, HOKA updated the tongue with a single-side gusset and added a hidden eyestay reinforcement to reduce any slippage.

Whether you are training for a half-marathon or on your feet all day at work, you will love the plush and stable HOKA Gaviota 4.

Not as plush as they used to be

DM 4 months ago Verified Purchase

I have been wearing Hoka’s exclusively for the past 7 years. I just had foot surgery and was looking for the plushness of a Gaviota like the ones I had before. Sadly I don’t think these should be called plush. The last pair I had were very soft and cushioned inside (like walking on a cloud) which is what I was looking for after my surgery. This pair does not feel plush at all. They feel firm. I will continue to buy Hoka’s but I won’t buy the Gaviota’s again. They are priced higher I assume because of the plushness but it just isn’t there anymore.
