The Brooks Ravenna is a versatile running shoe that is both light-weight and stable. Weighing in at only 8.8 ounces the Ravenna is a great option for runners looking for some light support as an every day trainer or for a racing shoe if you typically run in moderate stability.
Personally, I really enjoyed running in the Ravenna 7 with the added support even though I typically wear a neutral running shoe. The Ravenna provides runners with the best of both worlds because of the DNA cushioning that provides a softer feel if your walking and a firmer ride while running. Being on my feet all day at work I really enjoyed the additional support underfoot and the soft cushioned feel when I wear them around the clinic. While running, I liked the responsive feel, wider toe box and snug feel through the arch area that really hugs your foot! Another great feature in the Ravenna is the additional toe spring which allows me to move through my gait cycle a little quicker and more efficiently!
If you're looking for a shoe that light in weight with a little additional support than the Ravenna 7 could be the shoe for you. If you'd like to test them out feel free to come and join us for an awesome Brooks Group Run at Rhode Runner on February 17th at 6:00 pm! If you have any further comments, concerns or questions regarding the Brooks Ravenna 7 please feel free to let me know! I wish you all a wonderful running week and hopefully I'll see you then!
