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

There are currently two color options. Color 039 and color 091.
