Read our review of the HOKA Kawana


Breaking the mold with a lively new foam, the HOKA Kawana earns its name from the Gold Coast’s famous beach break.

The Kawana continues to push the boundaries of HOKA foams and geometries, settling itself nicely in between the Clifton and Bondi as a maximally cushioned neutral training shoe. Designed to create endlessly smooth heel strikes, the SwallowTail™ geometry of the extended crash pad will immediately grab your eye. Then, HOKA’s early-stage Meta-Rocker guides you through your gait cycle like a rocking chair to give you a fulcrum effect through toe-off.

HOKA uses an all-new CMEVA foam in the Kawana midsole that's built to give you lasting support. This playful new cushioning gives the shoe a firmer, more responsive ride and solid rebound that doesn’t feel too soft underneath you.

Our reviews liked the smooth, springy, semi-firm ride and comfortable fit in our HOKA ONE ONE Kawana review.

The result is an accessible daily trainer with a well-balanced ride and maximal HOKA comfort that can hold up to any pace.

What's New

HOKA introduced a new geometry and midsole foam in the Kawana. The extended SwallowTail heel and crash pad is designed to reduce landing impact for a smooth glide with each step. The lively and responsive CMEVA foam gives you support that lasts for hundreds of miles while being firm enough to push the pace.

Who It's Best For

The HOKA Kawana is a great neutral running shoe option for someone who likes maximal cushioning and a responsive ride. Fans of the Clifton or Bondi looking for a firmer midsole and smooth heel strike will love the well-balanced ride of the Kawana.

Why You'll Love It

You’ll love HOKA’s signature cushion and playful ride in the lively Kawana. However, this isn’t some clunky maximalist shoe—the HOKA Kawana feels like you're gliding through your run thanks to an early stage Meta-Rocker that gives you a smooth transition from heel-strike to toe-off.
