      Comments about Mens Brooks Ravenna 2 Running Shoe:

      This shoe has saved my running! It is a great shoe for MILD pronators. I have a narrow foot but a larger instep. I had been running in narrow shoes with lots of stability (medial) support. Last Spring while traing for a half marathon, I developed a lot of instep pain. I finally reallized that the medial support was traumatizing my instep because this section of the shoe was too narrow. When I wore my orthotic it was even worse because the narrow mid-foot and medial support exaggerated the effect of both the shoe and the orthotic. After a running hiatus of nearly 2 months, I started running again, and ordered the Ravenna 2 from RRS in a medium width. The combination of a wider shoe and less medial support has, thusfar, been perfect with no orthotic required. This morning, I ran 5 miles: my longest run since my half, with no pain! I recommend this shoe as an outstanding choice for a runner who is a mild pronator who wants a comfortable fit and a reasonable shoe weight.

        Always worried when they come out with a new revision to a shoe I love. Wore out about 6 pairs of the first version Revenna, but these seem to feel fairly the same.

          Comments about Mens Brooks Ravenna 2 Running Shoe:

          There are three things that I really like about these shoes:
          * DNA cushioning
          * The extra loop to keep the tongue in place
          * They feel almost the same as the GTS 11

          I bought these shoes because I wanted something with a little less support than the GTS series and the Ravenna 2 delivers. Standing and walking in the Ravenna 2 they feel just like the GTS, only after about 10 miles you can tell there's a little bit less pronation control. Why not just buy the GTS? Well... I wanted to give my arches a little bit more of a workout without going straight to a minimal shoe.
