Brooks are Best

I am a nurse and on my feet a lot. I am on my third pair of Brooks and am very pleased that they are available in wide widths.

I buy these for pronation problems. Ariel 16 had a wider toe overlap than the 18. I need the maximum pronation feature.

Hi! Which shoes are your recommended best for someone with very flat arches, history of plantar fasciitis, and previous ankle/knee/hip pains? I'm looking at ariels (that is what shoe finder recommended as #1) but wanted to check.

Hi. Yes the Ariel 18 could be a good option for you. Thank you.

What would be better for distance running? Transcend 6 or Ariel?

2019/06/22 muscatine, iowa jean

Hi! I think the Transcend 6 could be a better fit for distance running. Thanks!

I usually get Brooks shoes that are neutral. Would these shoes not be good for me? I would take out the arch support and use my custom arch supports. Would they be ok for a walking shoe?

2019/06/08 Lexington, Ky MaryAnne

The Ariel '18 is a maximum support shoe. If you are using orthotics we suggest going with the Dyad 10. Thank you!
