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.

Shoe’s you can depend on

DD 3 months ago Verified Purchase

This is my fifth pair of hokas. I wear them to walk 3 miles a day and have no complaints. I will continue to buy them as comfort is my number 1 rule when buying shoes. Fleet feet has a great website but I also love going in the Newport store because they are so friendly and knowledgeable.

Nice stable running shoe

Julie 5 months ago Verified Purchase

Love these shoes. Have put in many miles over the last few years. Finally time to get a new pair and I'll be sticking with Kawanas again. I have a history of spraining my ankles so I like that these have extra stability on the sides to help prevent rolling.

Painless work-outs

I've been using my Kawana's since May treadmill and weight-lifting. No more knee hip or lower back pain! I train 4-5 days a week.

Hoka Kawana

Arlette V 1 year ago Verified Purchase

I'm not a runner. Bought this pair of shoes for working 10 hrs a day on concrete. The aggressive sole is needed I will wear out the bottoms of shoes in less than 3 months. I also needed a light weight fabric for the shoe tops. Where I work is not air conditioned my feet need all the ventilation they can get. So far they are working well.

Beautiful tennis shoes

This is a beautiful tennis shoe. I love the quality texture and most of the variety of colors.

Loved but need in a wide

Crystal 1 year ago Verified Purchase

I loved the shoe but I need it in a wide which they don't come in. If you wear normal size shoes this is definitely worth looking at.
