      Never purchase Brook's before. Saw them at the Rock and Roll Marathon Expo and did a little research. Purchased these and I am SO happy I did. Very comfy. Light. Wear well. Great for road racing.

              Comments about Womens Brooks Ravenna 5 Running Shoe:

              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.

                Comments about Womens Brooks Ravenna 5 Running Shoe:

                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!

                  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!).

                        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!
