I have ran in many brands of running shoes. But my last pair were Brooks and I have to say the best running shoe ever. My next pair were definitely going to be Brooks.
Great trainer for over pronation
The Ravenna 8 is a slightly in-between shoe in a few ways. It offers support for overpronators (those whose feet roll too far inwards when they land), but not so much that it’s uncomfortable to run in if you’re a neutral runner.
It also has a very snug fit around the midsole, before opening out to allow more room in the toes. I’d have preferred a looser fit all round, but it wasn’t unpleasantly rigid to run in. If you find that traditional stability or neutral shoes aren't quite right for you, this might split the difference perfectly.
