Fit & Feel:
Your toes should not be touching the front of the shoe. Your heel should not lift out when you walk.
The insole is removable and offers some support, but the real arch support comes from the construction of the shoe.
This style features Hoka's J-Frame technology, designed to prevent excessive pronation without overcorrecting gait.
You will feel very secure in Gaviota 3. The outsole is wide and stable.
Gaviota 3 has more cushioning than Arahi 5 and similar cushioning to Bondi 7, offering a pillowy soft feel that is forgiving on your ankles and knees.
The toe box is roomy! It is both wide and high for total toe comfort.
