Comfy but pricey

Shoe looks and feels good. I do not care for the new material being used for the laces, however. Laces don't feel like they will last as long. Shoes took longer than expected to arrive. More expensive than I like to spend for a shoe.

Comfy

These fit great and we're comfortable from the get go. I have a bunion and high arches so need a shoe that accommodates both issues. I am satisfied with this running shoe but wish it had a little more arch support for my instep. I used Ariel 16 wide shoes before this as I also pronates when I run. I had a hard time finding this shoe so tried the 18. It works well for my needs.

only shoes I can wear

I have plantar fasciitis and these are the only shoes I can wear. The pain is relieved, don't even use my orthotics. I don't love the color but I have given up vanity for comfort.

My feet thank you!

First off I have to say Brooks customer service is amazing! First night of wearing the Ariel 18 and I'm already hooked. I suffer from arthritis in both feet and ankles due to several breaks. Between pain and foot swelling, standing has always been a torture I've had to endure. Finding a good shoe in an 11.5 is not an easy feat and I hope you continue to make this style. I'm literally on cloud 9!…

I would buy again. Very comfortable.

I needed a wide shoe that would fit my foot brace, but comfort and style mattered. This shoe, although pricey, does the job.
