Men's HOKA Gaviota 5



The HOKA Gaviota 5 brings comfort and stability to the next level.

Soft and comfortable, you will feel like you are walking on clouds in the new Gaviota 5. HOKA re-engineered this stability shoe with an intuitive H-Frame base and wider platform to give you a smooth and stable ride that is perfect for those with flexible arches or who overpronate.

The luxury feel continues in the upper with a breathable, creel jacquard upper. A gusseted tongue hugs your foot in place, while the heel pull tab makes it easy to slip on and off. Some of our reviewers did think that this shoe ran a little large in our HOKA Gaviota 5 review, so if you are in between sizes, you may want to consider sizing down.

The HOKA Gaviota 5 brings softness and stability to the next level whether you are working on your feet all day or running a marathon.

What’s New

HOKA made this version of the Gaviota the softest yet without sacrificing stability. Designers widened the platform and changed the stability mechanism from a J-Frame to an H-Frame to accommodate the softer foam. The result is pillowy goodness with a more accommodating fit for those with higher-volume feet.

Who It’s Best For

The HOKA Gaviota 5 is a great stability shoe for those who have flexible arches or overpronate and want a super soft, super cushioned shoe. Whether you are running, walking or standing on your feet all day, the Gaviota will make sure that you are supported and comfortable.

Why You’ll Love It

You will love how the HOKA Gaviota 5 makes each step luxurious, plush and stable.

The actual shoe is much too wide

I bought the Graviota 5 shoe 3 months ago so that I could walk 20-30000 steps per day while in Spain and have good arch support. The shoe feels very comfortable until you start to walk a lot. The toe box of the shoe is so wide that you find yourself stumbling over the shoe as you walk. Quite awkward at times. The sizing is also about a half an inch off.

Repeat buyer.

This is my 3rd pair of Hokas. Expensive but worth it. I don’t run I walk—a lot. Just like my previous Hokas they’re stable with a wide sole and well padded. There were cheaper options but this one just felt best for me.

GREAT Running Shoe

JoeyD 4 months ago Verified Purchase

Got into serious running last July in preparation for my first 1/2 Marathon in October and all tolled ran 424 miles in 2023. To date I've run 288 miles on my first pair of Gaviota 5's and they have been by far the BEST pair of running shoes I've ever owned! They are beyond comfortable and provide the most stability I've ever had with Nike Asics and Brooks....combined! Shopping for my next pair today!

My orthopedist recommended Fleet Feet as a great source to help with planar fanciatis. The team at Fleet Feet spent some time fitting me for insoles followed by trying several pair of shoes. Now Fleet Feet will be my only source for shoes!!!! Thanks to the two ladies that were at the store that night

Worth the Cost
