Celebs and athletes (and our editors!) alike love Hokas — the shoes are renowned for their stability, comfort and iconic chunky, cloud-like soles. But pairs can run you well over $100, with some even crossing the over-$200 benchmark. Despite that steep price tag, they're still obscenely popular — and as a result, colors sell out fast. Luckily, savvy TikTokers recently spotted a lookalike pair at Walmart, and here's the kicker: It's just $28.
The chunky sole makes these kicks perfect for work, play and everything in between.
The Avia Women's Hightail Athletic Sneakers have amassed an army of fans not only for their resemblance to the cult fave Hokas, but also because they're pretty incredible in their own right. A thick sole offers unparalleled comfort, while the molded EVA insoles provide arch support while cradling your foot. They're durable and offer traction, too, so they're great for those who need to be on their feet, like restaurant workers, teachers and nurses. You can even work out in them.
While the sneakers fluctuate in price, they're currently in stock for $28 in a selection of colors and sizes. They do routinely sell out, though, so make sure you don't miss out on grabbing a pair for yourself. When something goes viral on social media, it tends to sell out quickly!
Trendsetters aren't the only ones praising the sneakers, either. They have dozens of rave reviews from Walmart shoppers, too.
Shares one: "I looooooove these shoes!! This is my second pair and they are the comfiest shoes."
Even self-proclaimed shoe snobs love 'em: "Wow! I am very impressed by these shoes and this is coming from a bit of a shoe snob! They are very comfortable to walk and run in and give me some great support for my feet and ankles...They look really nice too, I've gotten many compliments on my new kicks!"
They're a diamond in the rough — even from those that typically go for big brand names. Shares a shopper: "I'm blown away at how comfortable these shoes are. I'm on my feet 8 hours requiring a lot of walking and these shoes are better than the high-dollar ones I've tried. A rare find."

India's Supreme Court ruled on Thursday that a woman's lack of marital status could not deny her the choice to abort a pregnancy at any time up to 24 weeks, a decision hailed by women's rights activists. The right to abortion has proved contentious globally after the U.S. Supreme Court overturned in June its landmark decision in Roe v. Wade that had legalised the procedure in the United States. "Even an unmarried woman can undergo abortion up to 24 weeks on par with married women," said Justice D.Y. Chandrachud of India's Supreme Court, holding that lack of marital status could not deprive a woman of the right.
