    I've only had these shoes for a couple days now so this is just initial impressions of it. I agree with anybody you hear say that they're tight the very first second you put them on. For the first couple minutes I was starting to regret my purchase. After a couple of minutes it totally changed. I couldn't give an exact amount of minutes, but it almost feels like a rapid break in. It begins to feel snug but not so tight, and I'm honestly in love now.

    Wow is it bright. the website almost doesn't do it enough justice with how vivid the orange is, and at least to me it appeared to have a slightly more red tinge online. I'm already purchasing more clothes to work around this though, because I don't want to take them off. I'm on my feet for a solid chunk of the day and I haven't had a problem so far. It seems when you first put them on you'll notice that initial snugness, then you get into enjoying the super dna cushioning system, and the further you get along you begin to feel that support.

    I had to order these online because they don't carry it at the retail store I work at. When customers ask for basic differences between the more popular brooks we carry, I'll tell them that the Ravenna is like a mix of the adrenaline and ghost. To me the transcend ups it, and I would say it's more like mixing the adrenaline with a glycerin. I only know what I've tried on though, with the transcends being the first pair of brooks that I've actually owned. It really seems to be cushion when you want it and support when you need it.

    I guess I'll finish up with a few smaller things. I replaced the provided shoe laces with some straight black ones, which improves the appearance by a decent amount if you ask me. I don't just go out and run really all that much, and again haven't owned these long so I cant speak to the durability of them. The rounded heel and ideal pressure zones do make you feel a smoother step throughout. My satisfaction with this shoe has literally only grown since I've had them. I can't wait to see what brooks does to further perfect the second generation when it comes.

    The heel to toe drop on this shoe is ideal for me. The cushioning feels very good (I'm a 230 lb runner). Lacing is comfortable, toe box wide enough, weight is fine. My main problem with this shoe is that the material used to trim the upper portion of the shoe near the toes is very firm/hard. Where my foot bends, right near the toes, the firm material bends inward and pushes into my foot and is very uncomfortable after about 3 miles. I want to return these shoes, but not sure the store will take them back. They may just end up being a short distance shoe, but I had high hopes they would become my distance trainer.

        Never had a more comfortable or solid pair of running shoes. My right foot is neutral and my left foot pronates...the guide rail system is great for this. Would be perfect in wide!

          I have never reviewed a shoe online, but I feel compelled to provide some feedback on the Transcend for those who may be on the fence - as the Transcend is a new model, and it's about $160.

          I am a 34 year old male, 5'10" 185lbs. In my late twenties, I was running 5K and 10K road races at about an 8 minute/mile pace. Plantar fasciitis set in and took me out of the game completely. I quit running for a full three years. A chiropractor friend of mine suggested that I modify my natural stride (big time heel striker) and try running on my toes. At about that same time, I received a pair of Adrenaline GTS 14s as a gift. Gradually, I have re-learned to run on my toes, and the Adrenalines were a critical tool in that process. However, as it still feels very unnatural for me to toe strike, I find that with the Adrenalines, I have to consciously focus on every stride in order to get my foot flat on the ground. Also, the Adrenalines did not offer the cushiony ride I found myself wanting.

          Enter the Transcends.

          These shoes are incredible. I knew within the first tenth of a mile on my first run that they were exactly what I needed. They provide a super soft ride. I find that with the soft DNA forefoot, my feet are less tired after a run. Also, and this is probably my favorite part, it's like the shoes do the thinking for me and place my feet on the ground properly. I still have to remind myself to be a toe striker, but it just feels so much more natural and easy with the Transcends. I could not be any happier with a pair of shoes. I'm still not back to my top form. But I'm now able to run 12 - 15 miles per week (Which, those of you with plantar fasciitis will know, is a beautiful thing!)
          If you are like me, and you have finicky or weak arches, or if you just have a heavier stride in general, I would strongly suggest that you try the Transcends. I will definitely buy another pair. And I really hope that Brooks sticks with this model.
          One last thing - I read/watched some of the reviews before buying, and saw a runner's magazine that knocked the Trancends as being a bit too heavy. I have not found that to be a problem, or even to be an accurate comment. They don't seem any heavier than the Adrenalines, at least not to me.

                  I'd been waiting for these shoes to be released for months. I really liked the look, the colour, and was hopeful for something a little different from my Adrenalines (which I've been wearing since version 6).

                  I have never been so unhappy with a shoe purchase...and I really, really wanted to like them. First, the toe box felt "sloppy." They were supposed to be sooo different, new technology, design thinking, etc. so I thought maybe I just wasn't giving them a chance. But after the 4th run of feeling like I was running in clown shoes I surrendered. Also, the shoe bent right at the base of my big toe, causing pretty significant blisters. I tried thicker socks, thinking it might hit just differently enough to alleviate that crease: no luck. I don't know whether they have too much or too little pronation control, but just not right for me. Also, there is not enough volume in the shoe for my foot (a problem I had with the predecessor, the Trance). But the deciding factor was the hip pain, specifically TFL & Glute Med. I ran in these: pain. I went back to my Adrenalines for a week: pain goes away. Transcend again: hip pain again. Repeat cycle 4 times before I gave up.

                  I'm sorry, Brooks, this shoe was an epic fail for me. I'm really lucky my running store took them back & I got another pair of Adrenalines. NOTE: when I took them back the guy who sold me the shoes said he had the same experience with them causing hip pain, and he is a more experienced runner, different body type, etc.

                  Back to the Adrenalines I guess. At least they're less expensive...even if they don't come in orange (my favourite colour).
