Review: Brooks Ravenna 8

Did you see our Ultimate Shoe Guide? The Brooks Ravenna 8 was a hit with our testers

Review: Brooks Ravenna 8

If you’ve got the April issue of Women’s Running, you would see that we tested over 30 different running shoes to bring you the best footwear in our Ultimate Shoe Guide.

Review: Brooks Ravenna 8

Here’s what our team of testers had to say about the Brooks Ravenna 8…

Brooks say: The streamlined update of the Ravenna is designed to offer better cushioning, from blown rubber in the forefoot, and a smoother ride, thanks to the midfoot transition zone and segmented crashpad. Stability comes from a diagonal rollbar and the ‘saddle’ tying into the laces gives rearfoot and midfoot security.

Our testers say: This is a lovely light stability shoe. The try-on feel is plush with soft padding around the heel. Fit is snug round the ankle and midfoot. The stability features in the midsole give a noticeable improvement but aren’t intrusive. What really impressed our tester was the great road feel and energy return from the springy cushioning. The lacing and padded tongue also take pressure off the bony top part of the foot.

Good for: Mild to moderate overpronators looking for a fast-feeling shoe with great ground feel.
