    Disappointed with this Ariel

    2017/04/13 | Florida |

    What happened to the good old Ariel? I've worn Ariels since 2005 to stabilize my legs (arthritis). The last model that was good was the 2012. I am at a loss for shoes. I wish Brooks could make a good shoe again.

    Comfortable but the color looks like a men's shoes.

    Shoe is comfortable (thank you & thank you for 2E) but please make it look like a woman's shoe in the next version. The Adrenaline comes in pretty colors but the Ariel looks really ugly. Would like to buy a couple more pairs of Ariels but will wait for some pretty colors. Will have to buy the New Balance Fresh Foam 1080 v7 because they have more attractive colors.

    This is my third pair of the Ariel style shoes.

    These work well for my flat feet but I wear them out in about a year because I wear them almost constantly.

    Yes, I would recommend this!

    not for me

    2017/04/02 | Florida |

    These new Ariels cannot hold a candle to the original Ariels. They are definitely a size too small, but the main thing is that Brooks has changed the shape of the shoe so there is less room in the toes. They are not "cushy".... I have orthotics so I took the insoles out to put my orthotics in and it felt like I was walking on cement. If you liked the original Brooks Ariel sneakers you will not be happy with these.

    The shoe is comfortable but doesn't seem to have as much support as the previous model.

    A "must have" for working retail

    2017/03/15 | Rosenberg, Texas |

    Ariel is by far the BEST shoe I have ever worn. I am a retail store manager and on my feet for several hours each day. For years I have been struggling with a lymphatic ankle (from a past injury), and could never find anything that would work for the "long" haul. I also deal with a tailors bunion on the other foot and metatarsal support is key. Two years ago I walked into "Happy Feet" in Tampa, Florida and they introduced me to Brooks Ariel. I was at the end of my rope, and tired of living with painful feet. They put me into a pair of Ariel's and I came back to life. The technology in this specific shoe is superior. I stand straighter, pressure is off of my hips and I feel increased stability when I walk. Most of all my feet are HAPPY. I honestly can say that this shoe will be my "forever shoe" now. Yes, I dream of cute, trendy shoes....but happy feet are the best feet. Thank you for great customer service along with a fantastic product.

    Yes, I would recommend this!
