CUSHIONING

  • Forefoot DNA cushioning gel is a highly viscous liquid that changes to become more or less firm in response to each individual's weight, pace, biomechanics, and running environment.

MIDSOLE

  • BioMoGo full-length midsole offers resilient cushioning and is made of environment-friendly, biodegradable materials.
  • Diagonal Rollbar (DRB) in the midfoot is made of dual density BioMoGo foam to reduce excess pronation.
  • DRB Accel is a thermoplastic polyurethane unit located in the midfoot for balanced support and torsional rigidity.
  • Stable Pod Configuration is a stable midsole/outsole design that sets the foot up for an efficient, balanced heel-to-toe transition.

  • Omega Flex Grooves enhance midsole flexibility without compromising cushioning.
UPPER
  • Element Mesh is a moisture-managing, breathable mesh upper.
  • Synthetic Overlays are strategically located with the purpose of providing a secure fit.
  • Element Linings lie along the underside of the upper to aid in moisture transfer and comfort.

  • Cushole S-257 Last utilizes a full length layer of advanced foam to provide cushioning and flexibility.
OUTSOLE
  • HPR Plus is a form of high abrasion-resistant rubber and is located in the heel.
  • Blown Rubber is located in the forefoot to provide responsiveness and flexibilty.
  • Flextra rubber in the forefoot is customized in each shoe model to provide adequate flexibility according to a runner's gender and weight.

Comments: love these shoes just as comfy as my retired adrenaline 13s. Can't beat the price

Comments: This shoe is a little narrow in the toe box. After 4-5 miles my outer toes start to rub. Another thing about this shoe is that the tongue is narrow too. I can still see my socks after I have laced up my shoes in the space between the shoe and the tongue. Weird. I have never had this problem with my other Brooks running shoes. And I used Shoefitr. I thought about going a size up but then the shoes would have been way too long. I would not buy these shoes again.

Comments: I recently switched from Asics to Brooks. Love this sneaker...it's held up well and haven't had any problems especially with distance runs. I'm a Brooks girl from now on.

Comments: The Ravenna 4 has been a delight to run in. The cushioning is there but it's not too much to where the shoe feels heavy. It's reliable on the longer runs, keeping your feet snug and safe from the constant pounding. Overall, it's a good shoe to log your daily miles.
