Best Stability Running Shoe 


Runners who overpronate need a sturdy stability shoe for better ankle support.  Unfortunately, that price for that stability can be a rigid shoe that isn't comfortable for running/walking.  

The HOKA ONE ONE Gaviota 2 employs the HOKA J-Frame™ rubberized foam design to support and protect your foot without using rigid materials.  This combined with the late stage meta-rocker, moderate heel bevel and flat waisted geometry makes for a comfortable, energetic stability shoe.  The Gaviota 2 is built on a wider chassis for greater balance underfoot.  The SUV of stability shoes!
