      Comments about Womens Brooks Ravenna 5 Running Shoe:

      I have been wearing Brooks Adrenaline GTS for years and thought it might be nice to alternate it with another model of running shoe. I have tried other brands of stability shoes as alternates but had yet to find a good match. I was expecting the shoe to be good but not as good as the Adrenaline. I am pleased to say I love the Ravenna just as much as the Adrenaline. They are comfortable and light. I feel they are roomy enough in the toe box without being too big. Overall, an excellent shoe.

          Comments about Womens Brooks Ravenna 5 Running Shoe:

          I've been searching for a pair of shoes that fit like this for months! I wish I would have tried on a pair of Brooks sooner! I have flat feet and I use custom orthotics and with my orthotics in these shoes fit like a glove. Other shoes enhance the orthotics and they hurt my feet but these are so comfortable and they have the perfect about of cushion. Since they are so lightweight they are very versatile and I love them for kickboxing, cardio and strength training workouts.

              I run between 20 and 25 miles a week, 3 to 4 days a week. This is a very comfy shoe, light weight and true to size fit. The arch is a bit pronounced so if you are flat footed this isn't your shoe. I ran 3 half marathons in this model shoe and had no issues. I also love the colors and shoelaces are nice and long.

                    I'm a big fan of Brooks shoes, and I used to buy only the Adrenaline model. Lately, though, I've been running in shoes with a little less support and guidance. My current rotation is the Ravenna 5 and the Pure Cadence 2. I love the Ravennas for long runs and easy runs (rather than speed work). I don't have many miles on these shoes yet, but so far so good! They're comfortable, with just the right amount of cushion. I have the grey ones in 8.0 wide, and I really like the way they feel and look. I will say, though, that the pink laces are a little short (they came with black ones too, so maybe those are longer?).

                              I have always been a Mizuno (performance stability) shoe lover but they have been dropping my style every year leaving me no choice but to shop around and after 3 months of hard shopping I found Brooks does a nice job with this shoe and I will buy more now to stock up. I require a stability but I also have a slightly wide foot but not wide heel so I can't buy wide. I got a Revanna 5 and last night I did 5 miles on the treadmill and no hot spots or any area of concern at all. It was like I had been wearing them all along. Keep in mind each style each year can be different. I bought the Revanna 4 on sale (last years model) at same time but it was very different on the top. I kept trying them because they were comfortable but after only a couple miles the ball of my feet where hot or tender. I will be going with multiple of Revanna 5 only. Also Lacing is everything. I tried 10 different ways on all the shoes I tested. (brought home 5 different styles that felt good in store) I found on this pair lacing old fashion lace (starting under rather than over way and skipping the pink fancy banded one was most comfortable. (I find re-lacing starting from under rather than factory over makes the pressure of the shoe material not as noticeable on the top of my feet which is an issue for me) By lacing the banded loops it became too tight around the arch of my foot which I did not need extra support there but maybe others like it so it doesn't hurt to try alternative lacing and knowing just because you can lace it there doesn't mean you have to. I participate in marathon length walks for events and walk and jog for training. I like that these will be comfortable for both.

                                I have been running in Nike Air Max for some time and the 2012 has some great cushioning but lately has been feeling a little too heavy for my foot. I also noticed mild pain in my right hip after the first mile and a little inward roll in my gait on the same side (I had sciatica about 7 years ago and regained only about 90% sensation from butt to sole of foot). The Brooks Ravenna 5 has been a fantastic solution and offers excellent stability with their roll bars. It makes the shoe look a little wider on the inside, but no big style sacrifice. The toe box is very roomy with the whole shoe being very lightweight and breathable. The design enables good contact with the ground which contributes to a very comfortable, stable run. I purchased the blue/coral shoe in a size 8 (7.5 in regular shoes). I can definitely say that my first pair of Brooks are my new favorite running shoe!

                                  Comments about Womens Brooks Ravenna 5 Running Shoe:

                                  As a former Asics GT-2000 girl, I can say that I am now completely hooked on the Brooks Ravenna. I loved the Ravenna 4 and completed a marathon in those with no issues, but so far I'm loving the Ravenna 5's even more. They definitely have a lighter feel, and seem more comfortable through the arch. The toebox is nice and roomy but the rest of the shoe fits snugly enough that I don't feel like I have to cinch the laces too tightly for a good fit the way I do with other brands. So far I have worn them on the track, treadmill, and in outdoor wintery conditions, and they have felt great on all surfaces...Keep up the great work, Brooks!

                                    I have these in my rotation with the Mizuno Wave Inspire 10s. I feel like these have a bit more cushion than the Mizunos. I had the Ravenna 4 before this model and can definitely feel the improvements - better support and so lightweight. I can't wait for the weather to improve so I can finally run outside (stupid asthma!).

                                        Comments about Womens Brooks Ravenna 5 Running Shoe:

                                        Lightweight and very comfortable! I love the amount of toe space-as well as overall arch support. I first tried these on at Roadrunner and knew that--despite the stack of options beside me--I would be walking out with these on. I tried the others on (including a pair of asics and another pair of Brooke's that came close), but nothing quite compared to these.

                                        Do yourself a favor and give these a shot. I doubt you'll be disappointed.

                                        P.S. Go for the blue/neon green/ mermaid colors. They're dreamy..

                                          I bought these at the Tualatin OR store after a shoe dog fitting. I was recommended the Brooks Ravenna 5, the Mizuno Wave Inspire 10 and the Asics GT 2000. More than the other two, the Ravenna 5 was the most comfortable and felt the most stable when running through the store. Granted, I didn't road test them before purchase, but I've done some outside running in them since and have been quite happy with the fit and stability--they truly do enable a smoother-feeling run!
