Fit Review

This shoe is just right, not too stiff, or not too squishy like other Hoka running shoes. The support is medium on this and the wide outer sole makes it one of the best shoes for wide feet running while it feels much more stable when compare as HOKA Gaviota 4 vs Brooks Adrenaline. It can be considered as one of the best running shoes from overpronation.

Reasons to Buy Hoka One Gaviota 4

The thicker sole of Gaviota 4 adds support and comfort for the users. You may not need any orthotics as recommended on user experiences. One of user has several foot conditions(like planter fasciitis) who loves to walk a lot and he’s not comfortable with the pair of regular running shoes. With recommendation from doctor, user noticed that other users have tried these Gaviota 4 running shoes and they are very happy with the comfortableness that it has. You can easily guess, what he had done then.

This shoe is getting more attention these days so we have picked this one specially for those who have issues with foot like planter fasciitis, bunions. But again, if you have a wider feet as the toolbox is narrower on this than regular running shoes, you may consider to buy half size bigger.

In case you have plantar fasciitis you will find these shoes very much comfortable considering regular running shoes. Regular runners can find it helpful in case they heavy foot or back pain related issues. This can be used as Parkour shoes even. In my research , repurchase is noticed from customer’s end.

Are hoka shoes good for nurses?

Several nurses have recommended this Gaviota 4 HOKA shoes and I have tested with 60 plus individuals. They are very happy with the comfort for day long use. Also I have tested this shoe for all day long standing and the result is pretty good. With crazy comfy feel and good stability, this shoe provides credibility to your feet and the light feeling on the top of your foot makes it a good one for the nurses. Even if you need to go for a long walk, or need to work for standing all day long my testers have high recommendation for this stability shoe compare to Brooks Adrenaline or even other HOKA shoes.

You can also use this Gaviota 4 as walking shoes. It has different colors and as it has black one, you can use it in your workplace as well. In terms of comfortable stuff, this is actually same like other HOKA running shoes and true to fit. So anyone who wants a shoe with comfortable fit & amazing cushion, HOKA Gaviota 4 can be a good fit for them like nurses, servers & bartenders.


Is HOKA Gaviota 4 Wide? The construction that has been offered on this HOKA Gaviota 4 than Bondi & Clifton models, is bit narrower. So, when you place an order, considered to order half size bigger for wide feet or check Fresh Foam 880v12.

If you want to know about is HOKA Gaviota 4 wide or not, answer is NO. Still it is considered as one of the best stability running shoes for overpronators. I personally  believe the issue will be sorted in HOKA Gaviota 5.
