Please make these shoes in other colors, I love them.

I am a tennis player and kept returning tennis shoes (from other tennis brands) because they kept hurting my feet. Brooks does not make tennis shoes, but I have 2 other pairs of Brooks, one for running and one for walking. I took a chance and ordered this shoe online because of the 90 day policy, fully expecting for it to be uncomfortable because it's not a tennis shoes (it's a training shoe),…

I am a tennis player and kept returning tennis shoes (from other tennis brands) because they kept hurting my feet. Brooks does not make tennis shoes, but I have 2 other pairs of Brooks, one for running and one for walking. I took a chance and ordered this shoe online because of the 90 day policy, fully expecting for it to be uncomfortable because it's not a tennis shoes (it's a training shoe), but also because my feet are a bit wide and this shoe comes in regular size. Surprise, suprise, they fit perfect, and they are wonderful to play tennis in them. I get so many compliments on how they look. I would love to buy more colors, but the only other color is yellow and I hate yellow. Please, please, make these shoes in other pretty colors. Read More

Nice Shoe

I had to return these because the arch was too high for me. If you have high arches, they will be perfect.

I would definitely buy this shoe again.

I speed walk in 5K & 10K events. This weekend I will speed walk in my first half marathon. I have tried Mizunos and ASICS. This shoe has decreased my mile pace by 1 minute. Your 'silly' test questions really work.

I would buy this again

comfortable and light weight. colors are limited, I prefer less pink, and maybe a blue or red for the womens. But again I ran well in them and had no issues with my feet or knees. With the Brooks 90 day trial run, and ease of return, icing on the cake.

Not a good replacement for the Racer ST5s

I've worn the ST5s for a few years, and I alternated the ST5s with the Ravenna before Brooks ruined the Ravenna. Now, they have discontinued the ST5s, which I loved, and replaced it with a racer with stability (a good thing) but it has too much cushioning for my preference. Within a mile of running in a new pair, my toes and balls of my feet started to go numb. I am having a serious issue of…

I've worn the ST5s for a few years, and I alternated the ST5s with the Ravenna before Brooks ruined the Ravenna. Now, they have discontinued the ST5s, which I loved, and replaced it with a racer with stability (a good thing) but it has too much cushioning for my preference. Within a mile of running in a new pair, my toes and balls of my feet started to go numb. I am having a serious issue of finding shoes that don't cause my toes to go numb because shoe manufacturers are putting too much cushion in their shoes. I don't know why Brooks has to change things that work so well. Also, I would really like some color options besides pink -- not all women like pink! I also tried the men's option to get away from the pink -- it is wider, which I also like; however, my toes also started to go numb after running in them for ~ 1 mile. Later that night, the balls of my feet ached, and my calves are sore too from trying to counteract the cushioning and the lack of responsiveness in the shoes. Bottom line: if you like responsive, lightweight shoes with some stability, then these are probably not the shoes for you; however, if you like lightweight shoes with some cushion, these could work for you.
