HOKA ONE ONE Gaviota 3

Features

With big cushion and reliable stability, the HOKA ONE ONE Gaviota 3 gives you the most, every step of the way.

HOKA loaded the new Gaviota with a bed of cushioning foam to make every step feel soft and easy. On top, an engineered mesh upper to deliver an easy fit and breathable support.

Embedded in the midsole is HOKA's unique stability technology, called the J-Frame. The rubberized hook of foam loops around your heel and extends up the medial side of the shoe to create a more stable platform that mitigates the effects of overpronation.

A wide base creates inherent stability, and the late-stage Meta Rocker design allows for a smooth toe-off.

The HOKA Gaviota 3’s maximum cushion and maximum stability let you ride in comfort from the first mile to the last.

What’s New + -

HOKA pumped up the Gaviota 3 with an additional 2 mm of midsole foam for an even softer ride than its predecessor.

We love the Gaviota’s big cushion that is super soft without feeling mushy. It’s responsive enough to give the shoe a lively feel and smooth ride.

Everything I expected

This is my second pair of Gaviota. I love the balance of plenty cushioning and support. Exactly what my orthopedic surgeon wants me in.

Pretty Good

I am growing more accustomed to these shoes. I bought them to help me with my plantar fasciitis. They do provide a very good, padded platform support as well as hug my heels. I would rate these higher if I could get the shoes in a more white color scheme. So hard to find understated, simple color scheme. I really thought I was ordering a white shoe and that the company made a substitution. I don't recall looking at the shoe as anything other than white. ( The shoe store did not have my size, so the shoe was ordered and arrived at my door via mail. ) Please consider some less loud color schemes.

Gaviota 3

I wear the Gaviota at work because I do a lot of standing. They provide the stability that my feet need while providing cushion. I don’t like to wear a stability shoe but my feet do!

Love them

I really like the extra cushioning the shoes provide. My feet didn’t have to get used to them but because of the difference in the way they make me walk, the rest of my body had to adjust. That took a couple of weeks, but I have adjusted well.

My Feet

I have had an ankle fusion and my feet are the prettiest and they pronate in but these Hoka’s the stable ones work great! Love my FleetFeet!
