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.

It was recommended I try these shoes. After going to the store they informed me that I could only find them online. The staff at the store are ALWAYS helpful, kind and knowledgeable. The shoes arrived icily and I love them. Not at “cushiony” as the Hoka Bondi but give stability. The cushion is more than the Hoka Clifton. I absolutely love them and highly recommend the shoe and the store! Thanks FleetFeet
I loved the shoe but bought a size a little too big. Planning to order smaller size. Great response from the company on returns and fast refund!
I’ve been wearing the Hoka Gaviata for a few years now... not the same pair. I keep buying again because its a great shoe. Good stability and cushion too. Fleet Feet sent my shoes fast and are a very reliable place of business!
