Like the mermaid herself, this shoe merges worlds: comfort and support. Cushioning molds to your feet while an updated toe box offers more space.

Overpronation help delivered.

My wife has a severe overpronation problem. We found that Brooks makes the best shoes to help her. We have her size pegged at 9.5 normal width. She is usually an 8.5 narrow width. These shoes are the best yet. She is a teacher and cannot walk very well. With these she can almost walk normal all day and come home without a limp. A well built high quality shoe.

EXTREMELY COMFORTABLE

Bought a pair of Ariel 18 to go on vacation in June. Walked several miles everyday touring Europe and had them on my feet from 7:00 am to 10:00 pm. Fits my extra wide feet perfectly. Love the neutral grey which matches any outfit. Hope you never change this running shoe as it is perfect just the way it is. As anyone with extra wide feet will tell you, shoe shopping can be a nightmare. Thank…

ONLY athletic shoe my podiatrist will recommend

LOVE the wider toe box. The 16's squashed my toes, but the 18 is great. Need that extra room for orthotics. I buy Ariel every year!

Solid shoe, as always

I wear my Brooks the minute my feet hit the floor in the morning all day until bedtime! I like that the new Ariel 18 has more space in the forefoot, as it accommodates my slight hammer toe very nicely.

Upgrading from Addictions

I have been wearing Brooks Addictions for over 10 years, but they have gotten much worse the last few years, and my most recent pair gave me corns and also wore out on the top and sides after only a few months. After trying many alternatives, I settled on the Ariel, and so far (two weeks in) I am very happy with them. They are supportive and comfortable and attractive. I really like the dark grey…

I have been wearing Brooks Addictions for over 10 years, but they have gotten much worse the last few years, and my most recent pair gave me corns and also wore out on the top and sides after only a few months. After trying many alternatives, I settled on the Ariel, and so far (two weeks in) I am very happy with them. They are supportive and comfortable and attractive. I really like the dark grey color because it is so neutral, and the purple highlights are subtle. I also appreciate the wide toe box, which prevents my toes from being squished. 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.

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

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.

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?
