Comments about Mens Brooks Ravenna 5 Running Shoe:

I run about 25 miles a week. These shoes are light, comfortable and have a conservative color scheme. I am normally an Asics wearer but my size was not available when I reluctantly bought these. I am definitely happy with these shoes. I would like a little more cushioning in the heel but they are okay as they are.

Comments about Mens Brooks Ravenna 5 Running Shoe:

Wanted a slightly more cushioned yet still light weight training shoe. Have been running in the Mizuno Inspire 10, (2E width). Overall the revenna's a good all around training shoe. I have a D+ width (left foot big toe slightly longer/wider than the right) and have a tough time finding an exact fit. The D felt too tight on the left foot; however, the 2E width is slightly loose in the mid foot. Ended up in the 2E and lace appropriately to work it out. Training for a 13.1 and have enjoyed the first ~50 miles in the revenna. I'm 5'9" ~152lbs. Will also keep running in the Inspire 10 and 11 when available as they're slightly lighter on race day, esp. 10Ks.

    Comments about Mens Brooks Ravenna 5 Running Shoe:

    After going through the whole Shoe Dog Experience (spending about an hour in the store) I finally purchased this Ravenna shoes. I honestly believe I ended up with the perfect shoe for my marathon training. I had suffered before from IT band syndrome and plantar fasciitis with other running shoes, and with these Brooks Ravenna I haven't experienced any slight discomfort. The shoes feel light yet very supportive (I'm an over-pronator). I don't see me using another shoe going forward.

      Comments about Mens Brooks Ravenna 5 Running Shoe:

      I run 80-100 miles a week and rotate multiple shoes. I haven't run in previous Ravenna versions but decided to give them a try. Loved them right out of the box. Nice soft feel while still responsive. They aren't super light but feel fast. I ran a 2:45 Boston time and would run another marathon in them...or even a half marathon. My previous marathon shoe was the Adidas energy boost...but V2 gave me blisters on my arch due to the overlays so I needed a new option.

      My only complaint is their durability...I think I have about 300 miles on them and the cushioning is already suspect. They're ok now for runs up to 10 miles but no further. They are less expensive than many other models though...and will definitely buy again.

        recently started training for my fifth full marathon. i was very satisfied with the ravenna 4. it was my primary shoe for long runs last year(2013). with newer versions of running shoes you always wonder if the updates will deliver.out of the box i did a 6 mile tempo run and the ravenna 5 didn't disappoint. i am thoroughly satisfied with the improvements. it is noticeably lighter and more responsive. the improved flexibility along with the plush cushioning allows for a very smooth ride. i will use them as a daily trainer for long runs and tempo runs. definitely a faster shoe than the ravenna 4.

          Bought these shoes for my son for a 10K. He is primarily a body builder but runs on pavement 2-3 times a week. Last pair I bought him were Brook's Adrenaline. I always trust "Shoe Dog's" recommendation. He is very happy!

            I run about 30 miles a week (Male 5'8" 160 lbs.)and I have been running in the Wave Inspire and A6 GT series for the better part of 10 years. I have been looking for shoes a little closer to the ground and less bulky but not minimalist. The Ravenna is exactly what I was looking for. The forefoot is wide but not sloppy and the 8 MM drop is lower but not an extreme change from the traditional shoes I am used to wearing. The Ravenna felt good right out of the box and they feel fast and supportive without being restrictive. These shoes along with the Saucony Guide 7 have made me keenly aware that for a long time I've been running in shoes far more supportive than I require. I am a convert to the Ravenna, its truly a great shoe.

            I bought these after a failed attempt at running comfortably in the Asics gel Kayano's. The Asics ran me $170 plus and they injured me on the first run! I brought them back and tried on these Ravenna's and was shocked at how much more comfortable they were than the Asics and how much cheaper they were as well.

            I run 3 days a week and average about 8 miles plus per day. These Ravenna's handle my workload and keep me comfortable and stable run after run. I am a big guy, 6'9, 220 lbs and I alternate pairs during the week but at these prices you can afford more than one pair compared to the Asics!

            I cannot tell you how comfortable these sneakers are! I tried on dozens of pairs of sneakers and these Ravenna's were by far the best! Do your research, the most expensive sneaker might not work for you and I found that out the hard way with the Asics Kayano's.

            Choose Brooks - great sneakers, great price, and great looks as well!

            I own the PureFlow and PureCadence models as my every day wearers and absolutely love those as well! Brooks does it right!

              These breath much better than my Adistar Boosts and are almost as cushiony.
              Much more flexible and less clunky than the Transcend.
              I've only had them for three weeks so I don't know if they'll wear well.

                I run primarily on the road 12-15 miles a week. I went back to New Balanace for my last pair of shoes and was very disappointed on many levels - too narrow, wore out too fast.
                These shoes fit and feel great, hopefully they are durable and last a few hundred miles.

                    Used every version of the Ravenna and they keep improving. Great comfort and support. Highly recommended for the moderate overpronator. The upper is super comfortable with no hot spots. The midsole has a ton of cushion but offers great support.
