I was recommended these shoes by my podiatrist as I have to wear a custom made pair of orthotics in my shoes due to having a vertal talus(rocker bottom foot) in my right foot and a fallen arche in my left foot. I am in college studying nursing and I also wear these shoes on my clinical placements. These are by far ,hands down, the most comfortable pair of shoes I own to date. They are on the pricey side but they are well worth it. The support and comfort is second to none. If you wear orthotics I'd advise to go half a size up from your actual shoe size. Read More

Perfect for my needs

I wear these shoes all the time to aid my stability. They were recommended by my podiatrist, and my feet have not felt better in years!

Great shoe but small problem

I've been buying brooks for a years. This shoe was great in every way except for the left heel was too big. I ordered the normal width as usual, but that left heel fit as if it was too big. Never had a problem before and actually don't anticipate any other problems with future brook shoes. I did send them back and ordered a different pair. Looking forward to my new shoes!

Great support for wide feet!

I have very wide feet and I overpronate. I got fitted years ago for running shoes and became an Ariel fan up until the Ariel 16. I hated that shoe and was afraid to go back to Brooks after that one. I struggled with running shoes for the last year and when I went back to the running store, again, they gave me the Ariel 18 and it felt like they were supposed to! Great room in the toe box, super…

I have very wide feet and I overpronate. I got fitted years ago for running shoes and became an Ariel fan up until the Ariel 16. I hated that shoe and was afraid to go back to Brooks after that one. I struggled with running shoes for the last year and when I went back to the running store, again, they gave me the Ariel 18 and it felt like they were supposed to! Great room in the toe box, super supportive and accommodate my inserts. Nice and wide. I've had no issues with shin splints or knee pain and I've had these for 3 months and just ran my first half marathon with them. I took one star off for the lack of color options..they're pretty ugly. I'm going mostly for comfort and support, but having something with fun colors wouldn't hurt. Otherwise please don't change these shoes again!! The 16 was a terrible version Read More

Hello, I always got these in a 9.5 med width then I had to go with a 10 because they ran small .I would like to know if these run small enough to go back to my 9.5 I noticed the results saying theres more room for your toes.

The Ariel '18 has a new enhanced fit. Size 9.5 should do it!

i usually wear the Brooks Dyad version for women. Which shoe is most like that one? What does 10 mm midsole drop mean?

2018/10/01 MD Donna

The Dyad 10 is currently available. The midsole drop refers to the difference in height between the heel and toe.

I have been wearing the Brooks Ariel for several years due to severe over pronation. Is this the best choice for me in the Brooks line? These shoes have really helped me. I recommend Brooks to everyone and have two of my daughters wearing them also now.

2018/09/28 Nebraska Jan

The Ariel '18 is a Max support shoe. They are the best for severe overpronation.

I am looking for a shoe for my dad that has the same cushion and support as the women's Ariel. What do you recommend?

2018/09/16 Spokane wa Judys

That would be the Beast '18.

What colors are available for the Ariel 18?

2018/08/14 Oswego, IL Barb
