DNA Midsole

What is it?

Brooks DNA is an innovative and uniquely adaptive cushioning system. By adapting to your specific weight, pace, gait and running surface, DNA offers customized cushioning and adds a spring to your step.

Traditional cushioning takes a one-size-fits-all approach, but we know that each runner is different. Brooks DNA was developed to continuously tailor the level of cushioning to your specific needs – even as they change during the run.

How does it work?

Brooks DNA is made up of a highly viscous non-Newtonian material or more simply put, a material that adapts to the specific force you apply to it. Part of the brilliance is that this compound was engineered to perform at the molecular level (picture millions of resilient 'nanosprings').

If you looked at Brooks DNA through a microscope, you'd see that it's made up of individual molecules connected in strands. These strands (which form chains) react to the amount of force placed on the foot, dispersing pressure and providing resiliency. Bottom line of this physics lesson: You get tailored cushioning that reacts to your specific weight, pace, gait, movement and running environment – "made-for-me" cushioning vs. "one size fits all."

And, as with all good technology, we’ve taken it a step further (two steps actually):

  • BioMoGo DNA is DNA technology blended with the BioMoGo midsole to provide adaptive cushioning throughout the midsole vs. just in the heel and forefoot.
  • BioMoGo DNA midsole includes an organic, non-toxic additive that biodegrades the midsole 50 times faster than traditional EVA when it comes into contact with anaerobic landfill microbes (otherwise known as active, enclosed landfills).

  • 30% more cushioning than standard midsole materials (gel or EVA)
  • Twice as much energy return for more pep in your step
  • Great performance no matter your weight or running pace
  • Smoother transition from heel to toe

Segmented Crash Pad

What is it?

The Segmented Crash Pad customizes your foot's lay-down to provide amazing cushion and smooth heel-to-toe transition throughout the run.

How does it work?

We know that a key component of maximizing your run is to provide the smoothest possible heel-to-toe transition. The Segmented Crash Pad is one technology we use to achieve this goal.

Shaped like a caterpillar, the Segmented Crash Pad is a midsole made up of independent, yet fully integrated shock absorbers. As your foot strikes the ground, the segments work together to customize your individual lay down to provide the right amount of cushion and seamless heel-to-toe transition for you – making the most of all that effort you put into each stride.

    I bought Ravenna 5 in purple and I love it! As someone who goes with the best shoe regardless of appearance, it is exciting to get the "cuteness factor" to boot! I used to have many foot and lower leg problems, but I haven't had any running related injuries while wearing the Ravenna (3 years). I am a long distance runner and I believe having the right shoe is absolutely necessary for bio-mechanics and injury prevention.

    I'm training for my 4th marathon and purchased my 5th pair of Brooks Ravenna. While the colors are getting better, the shoe quality seems to be faltering. Too big, too wide, poorly stiched, laces don't match.

      Comments about Ravenna 5:

      After running in the Saucony Guides for a few years, my local running store fitted me for the Ravenna 5s and I fell in love! I've been running in them for about 2 months and loved them so much that I went ahead and bought another pair. I have high arches, and I never have foot pain after running in these.

            Comments about Ravenna 5:

            I primarily run on country roads and the treadmill. I prefer this shoe outdoors. The sole is very well padded and supportive. I feel like there could be a little more arch support, but I have very high arches and very small feet. These are very comfortable to wear for a long period of time both running and walking.

              I have a metatarsal problem but in these shoes I can walk for miles with no pain. Foot doctor said to remove the insole from the Brooks factory for an orthodic from a store. Don't understand why Brooks insole wouldn't be good enough but I did it anyway.

              Comments about Ravenna 5:

              I bought these shoes to run on treadmill. They feel great, but they do wear--rub a little--differently when I slow to a walk. I like extra room in the toe of my shoes, so I usually buy 1/2 size bigger, but I measured my foot, and ordered these shoes to size. They fit very well. I have plenty of toe room.

              Comments about Ravenna 5:

              I bought the Ravenna years ago for running. I loved the style and fit. This time I use the shoes for work where I am on my feet and walking the majority of the time. These shoes have been great for that. I have normal width feet but a low profile foot. I tend to have a lot of 'material' over my arch and toe box area. For example, if I tighten the shoelaces enough to feel secure in the shoe it tends to create bunching over my arch. These shoes however do NOT do that. They are a good fit for me. Sorry... I have no information on their 'athletic' performance. Overall happy with the fit. I would buy them again.
