Additional Information

Make the Ariel part of your world. The new Ariel 14 women’s running shoe is a wonder of stability, support and cushion. It’s the ideal shoe for runners who tend to over-pronate, thanks to the Progressive Diagonal Rollbar that provides better control and a smoother ride. The adaptable cushioning of Brooks DNA in the midsole provides maximum comfort while the Segmented Crash Pad underfoot give you seamless heel-to-toe transition. Moisture-management materials in the upper and sockliner ensure your feet will feel as cool as they look in the newly designed Ariel 14.

I've been wearing the same style for years...and I love it. For some reason, this pair feels a tad tight (not really the width or the length - literally the part that covers the foot across the top...and I know this sounds crazy, but the shoe laces also seem shorter...or maybe I am just using more of them in the lace up process because the shoe seems a little smaller.

I have owned at least 14 pairs of Ariels. I swore by them. They were the most comfortable shoes that I have ever worn. I bought the new redesigned Ariel and found it to be very tight and uncomfortable. I tried wearing it around the house but they never felt good. I returned to the store this week. I compared the width of my new Ariel with the width of last years model and found the new one to be 0.5 cm narrower. Very disappointing to me. Now I need to search for a new shoe.

"They'd be crazy to change it!"

      Comments about Ariel '14:

      I've happily run in Brooks Ariel for many years. It was reliable, sturdy, and a good fit. When previous models were released, I remained happy in new ways. But not now! When I asked the clerk if the Ariel 14 had changed design, he said "They'd be crazy to change it!" And they apparently did. The fit is so snug, so different that I have doubts about even running in it. Shorter, narrower, something tightened across the bridge of the foot. Please! I'd pay a king's ransom to have a few pairs of the previous model. You blew it, Brooks.

      Comments about Ariel '14:

      I have worn different versions of the Ariel over the past 8 years, always the same size and width. This new design is MUCH tighter and more narrow than past designs, and even after one month of wearing them, they are still too tight. The shoe looks terrible, as it is clearly too small and so the laces look very short when tied.

      Comments about Ariel '14:

      I am a serious daily walker and have purchased this shoe for years. It has always been good to go from the beginning. I could barely get around one block before my toes started to pinch and hurt. This new design does not have as much cushion as before and just feels like a cheaper version of what was a perfect shoe.....so sad! Change the colors, not the design!!!

      Comments about Ariel '14:

      I was a bit disappointed that the outsides of the shoes were redesigned. They don't have the support on the outside by the toes like they were. They are light weight like I need. And the cushioning is good for my foot problems, but my toes now feel like they are slipping off the sides.
