Brooks Ravenna 2 Wins Runner’s World’s “Editor’s Choice” Award

Brooks Ravenna 2 for men

Brooks Ravenna 2 for men

The Ravenna 2 is perfectly tuned to your needs, with just enough support for mild overpronators. We added Brooks® DNA to adapt to each step you take, for customized cushioning and energy return. The 3D adjustable arch saddle conforms to your foot for an ideal instep wrap, and a caterpillar crash pad smoothes out the landing zone, moving your foot efficiently through the heel strike. Sweet.

In Runner’s World magazine’s Summer 2011 Running Shoe Guide, the Ravenna 2 was named Editor’s Choice. In the June 2011 issue, Runner’s World states, “Credit the shoe’s winning combination of a nimble, low-to-the-ground profile and ample cushioning for heel- and midfoot-strikers. Even more impressive is how Brooks now scales the flexibility of this shoe according to gender and size — making the smaller sizes less rigid in the forefoot than larger ones,” adding that the fast feel belies the amount of corrective support it provides. “If you’re looking for a single shoe for both marathon training and racing, this is it.”
