Brooks Ravenna 10 Review: New Holistic Support Meets Springy Cushion

Brooks-Ravenna-10-Review

Lace up industry-leading knee support that starts right at your feet in the revamped Brooks Ravenna 10 running shoes with all new GuideRails technology.

WHAT THE BROOKS RAVENNA 10 ARE:

Supportive, Lightweight Stability Running Shoes

WHAT THEY REPLACE:

The Brooks Ravenna 10 replace the Brooks Ravenna 9.

WHAT’S NEW:

One word: GuideRails! Designed to keep excess movement in check, your knees finally get the stable protection they need, while your feet are free to fly in these lightweight trainers. More of that super squishy, eco-friendly BioMoGo DNA foam cushioning underfoot makes for a speedier ride, even on longer runs. Enjoy a new slipper-like feel with a single-piece mesh upper full of tiny airholes (yes, this is a major difference from the basketball-jersey-size airholes of the Ravenna 9!),  that keeps things breezy while still being a perfect pick for braving the elements.

WHAT YOU’LL LOVE:

The first thing I noticed when taking these out for a spin is quite simply, I felt fast. If you are a fan of ASICS’ Flyte Foam, you’ll be into the familiar firm yet springy feel of the Ravenna 10’s BioMoGo DNA midsole. That on top of a bouncy all-rubber outsole makes for an energetic rebound that’ll keep you going on even your toughest training days. And, if you’re worried about the GuideRails technology feeling too supportive, don’t fret! The guidance they provide is low-key, enough so that even neutral runners will find them unobtrusive while running.

WHO THEY’RE FOR:

A genius pick for mild-to-moderate overpronators, most will find something to love about this springy stability shoes. If the thought of a future knee injury is always in the back of your mind, you’re gonna flip for the way these keep your knees from moving side to side too much. With a midfoot saddle and attached tongue, you can lace them up firmly to ensure that there are no hot spots and no slipping. However, athletes with wider feet may want to pick a size up as the toe box fits VERY true to size. In fact, it could feel a tad bit narrow if you enjoy having wiggle room during your workouts. All in all, a great choice especially for runners who aren’t sure if they need a dedicated stability shoe or not.

WHY YOU WANT ‘EM:

If you crave stability without a lot of clunky support and you love to go fast, you’re going to love the Ravenna 10. You’ll also love that they’ve got:

  • A Midfoot Transition Zone that’s shaped to get you going from heel-to-toe lightning fast
  • An Internal Bootie Construction to keep things soft and breathable
  • A Midfoot Saddle that wraps firmly around your foot for a comfy, secure fit
  • Understated yet eye-catching color choices to add effortless sporty style to your workout
