HOKA ONE ONE Gaviota 2


The introduction of the HOKA Gaviota in 2017 shook up the stability running shoe game. The Gaviota 2 is back at it.

HOKA designed the original Gaviota with J-frame technology—a blend of EVA foam and rubber—and it carried over into the second edition. The breakthrough frame design guides you foot into proper alignment without the use of rigid or unforgiving materials, so you get a consistently comfortable run.

The most noticeable change is in the Gaviota’s upper. The redesigned engineered mesh breathes better than the first edition without sacrificing support or looks.

With its thoughtful updates, the Gaviota 2 is a powerhouse stability shoe that’s ready for any challenge.

I have wide, flat feet with a bunion. I chose to get the wide version and they are perfect! I have tried so many brands. Most recently, I had a pair of Ahari 3 (regular width) and they caused blisters on the bottom of my great toe. The wide GAVIOTA 2 have been the best shoe I’ve ever had. So far 3 runs over 4 miles each and not a single foot issue!
