Read our review of the 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.

These were one of the styles picked for me after my foot scan at the store. They’re perfect!! I am so pleased with the fit and feel of these. I wear them to work so 12 hours on my feet is the ultimate sneaker-test and these pass with flying colors!

I ordered the same size I usually wear but was surprised at the width of this new version of Gaviota 5. Very disappointed with the changes Hoka made this time. I will be returning this shoe.

lukewarm about this shoe

I've been wild about Hokas but this change in styling leaves me cold. The Gaviota 5 has a wider toe box than the Gaviota 4. I'm not wild about this change

I have always loved my Hoka Gaviota. I always wear a 9w so I ordered a 9w in the Gaviota 5. But it was way too wide. So I exchanged them for a 9B. Still too big and they have a clownish look to them. So disappointed they decided to change the design of this model of Hoka.

Wide width?????

Tender F 6 months ago Verified Purchase

The shoes were size wide…..but not really!! The netting top was wide but the bottom inside wasn’t!!There was a subtle ridge where the insoles meet up with the sides of this shoe. After walking awhile the bottom edges of my feet hurt from the shoe….were red and sore. Alas I wanted them to be comfortable!!

wish they hadn't changed it!

I've worn Gaviota's for years and don't particularly like the new design. They are too wide in the front and look kind of like clown shoes.
