I work out about 8-9 hours a week with Jazzercise. For some reason this pair does not have the padding the others have had in the past. Not sure why. Like they were used or something

Great sneakers! I am still breaking them in to be on the safe side but they are comfortable and secure, just what I was looking for.

I have bought this product at least twice before.

These shoes offer stability for my very weak and unstable feet.

I will never buy another brand again!

These are the BEST shoes. I am overweight and bartend 3 nights a week. With my previous shoes I wouldn't be able to walk without sever pain by the end of the night. With my new Brooks, my feet feel amazing! I can't wait to get my next pair!

My husband like a shoe in purple. He wears a size 10 in men's with a 2 E width. Is there a way he could buy a womans shoe?

2019/02/12 Fort Wayne, Indiana Alice

Yes, the 11.5 2E in women's is the same size as 10 2E in men's.

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.
