    Foot pain developed after wearing these:(

    2017/04/26 | MN |

    I'm wondering if I have the right shoe for my foot? I had the Ravenna 7. Bought the Ravenna 8 and started having foot pain after wearing them for 6-8 runs. I went back to my old shoes (before the Ravenna 7; Saucony grid) and my pain is gone.

    Yes, I would recommend this!

    worst Ravenna yet

    2017/04/19 | Oklahoma |

    I've been buying Ravennas for about 6 years now, each couple months I try to get the newest style or one of the old ones. I bought this shoe two months before a marathon I'm training training for and it is painful to wear! I've gotten the worst shin splints that I've had since before wearing brooks. I can barely walk without my leg tensing up in pain. I won't order Ravennas AGAIN until they bring back one of the old versions. Do not buy these if you already have a history of shin splints!!!!!

    Very disappointed, fabric wears out FAST!

    2017/04/17 | Western Kentucky |

    I bought these one month ago. I usually buy the Brooks Ghost line but didn't like the color choices this year, so thought I'd give the Ravenna a try since it was stylish and had great reviews (at the time). I walk or run 3-4 miles every day in the city. Overall, the shoe has held up great with the exception of the cloth part, there are holes in both shoes all over the cloth covered areas. This shoe also runs a half size small (I'm an 8 in the Ghost, a 7.5 in the Ravenna) and definitely more narrow...I don't notice the narrowness when moving as I pronate and that helps but it hurts a little if I wear for any period after walking. Next time I'll stick with the Ghost. Very disappointed in the quick wearing of the fabric, I expect more from Brooks. I would return but already threw away my receipt since I've never had a problem in the past.

    Where the 6s at?

    2017/04/13 | Tyler, Texas |

    I walk in these shoes all day long and then workout hard at night. I had the Ravenna 6s and they worked magically with pronation correction and eradicated my knee pain. These 8s, however, I was told by customer support they had the same stability as the 6s and they do not, in my knee's opinion as the pain is back. The style is definitely better but I feel this product has lesser quality.

    The Ravenna 7s are much better

    2017/04/12 | Buffalo, NY |

    The Ravenna 7s and all previous models are so much better. They really changed the arch support in the 8s and they actually caused me to get planter fasciitis. At first I liked them and was excited but after 1 week of running the arch wasn't enough and really affected my training and I had to take a week off because of it. I ended up finding a 7 model online somewhere else but I do not know what I will do once those one wears out. Brooks change the support back to what it was please!!!!

    Top Mesh Breakdown

    2017/04/08 | WI |

    Bought these to replace my Brooks Ghost 7s where my ankle/heal flipped in and got stuck in that position internally. I hardly wore them at that point but they were comfortable for the most part until the flipped heal so I thought I'd try Brooks again. These new Ravennas have worn so quickly where the top mesh has holes starting. I play volleyball 3x/wk so maybe it's a bit much for these shoes.

    Very Good Shoe

    2017/03/30 | Colorado |

    Overall this is a great lightweight running shoe. I ran in the Ravenna 4's and 5's. I was disappointed with the 6's as the toe box was extremely uncomfortable and they felt a lot heavier than the 4's and 5's. I'm in the Air Force and use these for my PT test and for squadron PT. The shoe is extremely responsive and provides great support since I overpronate. I do feel a little heel slippage which is annoying, but I just try and ignore it since it isn't significant. Overall it is a great lightweight stability shoe and I would definitely recommend this for those who overpronate but want a lightweight shoe!

    Yes, I would recommend this!

    Out of the box and on the road in 20 minutes

    2017/03/27 | Drexel Hill |

    I have the 7's,which i wore down to nothing. I was looking for a new shoe this month and liked the navy 8's. I tried on about 7-8 other brands/styles and then the Ravenna. I knew it right away! Comfort, stability, it was all the same reasons I liked the 7's. Needless to say, I bought them and immediately went for a 4 mile run about 10 minutes later. I love them.

    Yes, I would recommend this!

    wonderful shoe!

    2017/03/25 | seattle, wa |

    I've run in Ravena's for a few years now, loved the 5, 6, and now the 8. I didn't care for the 7's so skipped them. Tried the 8's and love them. They are a bit more narrow in the toe box and a bit snug on the top of my foot but so far I've had no issue. Just a feel thing. For the most part I don't notice a thing, which is good! I am a distance runner, logging a lot of miles, and my feet feel really cared for in this shoe. The cushioning is great. I tend to like a minimalist feel but in these I feel pretty good, despite the stiffer shoe and cushioning. I absolutely love this model. I wish there were more neutral colors - kind of sick of the bright bright colors that all shoe makers go with. I love some of the mens colors and wish they'd make similar ones for women.

    Yes, I would recommend this!
