Comments about Womens Brooks Ravenna 8 Running Shoe:

Great shoe. Spent more on these than I usually like to, but felt great up until ~250 miles when I felt like the cushioning in the forefoot had taken on enough wear and tear. Cushioning in the back felt great still but alas, time to switch out!

    Comments about Womens Brooks Ravenna 8 Running Shoe:

    I have worn the Ravenna 5, 6 and 7, and never had a problem. I wore the Ravenna 8 for a half marathon and my right foot was in pain after about 9 miles. Wore them again for another half marathon and the exact same thing happened. Went to the doctor and we thought I had a Morton's neuroma. Well, I ended up running the NYC marathon in the Brooks Revel and had no problems with my foot. Very disappointed that these did not work out for me.

      Comments about Womens Brooks Ravenna 8 Running Shoe:

      I have a narrow foot so this shoe should work for me. Unfortunately by my 2nd or 3rd run when I increased mileage a smidge to 5 miles my right foot went numb. This isn't the first time this has happened in a Brooks shoe. I will try relacing and running one more time but I'm pretty sure they need to go back :( Love the look of the navy and purple ones though!

      Great shoe as I've come to expect from Brooks. They fit as expected. Good cushioning. The tounge sticks out a little weirdly, but it's purely cosmetic.

      I'm still not sold on these shoes and not sure I'm keeping them. I have had 3 previous versions of Ravenna and loved them but this shoe feels like my foot is in a vice. Considering returning and trying in the wide.

      I love this running shoe--it has gotten me through a couple of marathons but recently changed to a wide due to the narrow toebox and it feels much better.

      Comments about Womens Brooks Ravenna 8 Running Shoe:

      I was looking for a light weight shoe with cushioning. The Brooks Ravenna 8 fits the bill. When I put on a shoe and my feet say "ahhh", that shoe is a keeper. Brooks shoes fit my feet better than any other shoe I have tried.

      Comments about Womens Brooks Ravenna 8 Running Shoe:

      This new version of the Ravenna caused me to miss a last chance Boston Qualifier!! Fits very narrow in the toe box. I thought I had a Morton's Neuroma because of this ill fitting shoe. I will never wear Brooks again! Back when they revamped the Adrenaline 15 I thought I had an Achilles injury. It was just the updated shoe and I switched to the Ravenna, now this....This much of an update is called a new model.

      Service and delivery comments:

      Customer service was great and I was able to return my shoes with no problem. I had already thrown the box away, but RRS came through for me once again. I will always buy my shoes here!

      Comments about Womens Brooks Ravenna 8 Running Shoe:

      Love this shoe! I am new to running and the Ravenna is super comfortable, perfect for my slight pronation, and affordable. I wasn't crazy about the colors, but the function makes up for it. In addition, it shipped very quickly and the customer service was great. It fits on the slightly large side, but just enough that I have comfortable toe room.

      Comments about Womens Brooks Ravenna 8 Running Shoe:

      I run about 30 miles a week and rotate shoes. I ran in Ravennas 4 and 5 and didn't like 6 and 7 so much because they gave me blisters. The 8's have worked well for me so far. I like the Ravennas for long and easy runs because they have a bit of support without getting in the way. I can pick up the pace in them and they don't feel clunky like some trainers do. They are a bit narrow, but I haven't had any issues with fit and blisters. The 6 and 7's gave me blisters on my heels. My feet are average width. The sole has good grip on wet pavement, and the mesh breathes well in the summer heat.

      Almost as good as the Ravenna 5's

      Comments about Womens Brooks Ravenna 8 Running Shoe:

      As close to the ravenna 5's as you can get (my favorite version ever). Love the ravennas but hated the last version, completely ruined the sneaker. These break in easily, are not overly supportive like the last version, and have just enough cushion. I will definitely be buying another pair.

      Not a good fit for my feet

      By Debra

      from undisclosed

      Verified Buyer

      Comments about Womens Brooks Ravenna 8 Running Shoe:

      I am a walker, not a runner, with high arches and plantar fasciitis. I wear podiatrist built orthotics in my shoes which changes the fit of most shoes. I loved the Ravenna 7, which I wore for about 9 months and naturally chose the newest version, Ravenna 8 to replace my well worn shoes.
      Unfortunately after trying Ravenna 8 for a few weeks, I had discomfort with the new lacing profile; the top of the shoe dug into the top of my feet.
      Since Roadrunner is great about making sure their customers are happy returned them to the Concord CA store and spent a long time trying a number of different shoes. I had great help at the store and ultimately switched them for the Asics GT 2000. They are just perfect!

      ankle issues

      Comments about Womens Brooks Ravenna 8 Running Shoe:

      Loved how they felt on but after I kicked up my mileage training for a half, I started having outer ankle issues (maybe tendinitis?). Returned these and switched back to my Brooks Adrenaline.
