INTRODUCTION

The Ravenna 3 is a moderate feature, moderate support shoe designed for daily training and high mileage.

CUSHIONING

  • Rearfoot 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.
  • 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.
  • Caterpillar Crash Pad is a segmented crash pad that flexes with the foot, offering customized cushioning and stability for a smooth heel-to-toe transition.
  • Omega Flex Grooves enhance midsole flexibility without compromising cushioning.
UPPER
  • Air Mesh covers the upper and is a breathable mesh that allows heat to escape.
  • 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.
  • Profile Sockliner sits underfoot and is made of BioMoGo for cushioning and forms a contoured support sensation.
  • 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.
  • Stable Pod Configuration is a stable midsole/outsole design that sets the foot up for an efficient, balanced heel-to-toe transition.

Comments: What a great shoe! I have been running in a neutral shoe for years and recently switched to a support shoe. I am alternating between these and the Saucony Guide 5. I prefer the cushion of the Ravenna. They are quickly becoming my favorite. I run around 45 miles per week and use these for my easy runs as well as my tempo runs. I do agree that the sole seems very soft, but hey, I don't expect them to last forever. I will probably get 400 miles or so out of these. I am impressed so far.

Comments: I have to take back my earlier review.  I now have 31 miles of running in these shoes and already they have developed balding spots. What gives? 31 miles and the threads are showing premature wear.  I'm waiting to hear back from Brooks. I have an older pair of Ravenna 2's with around 180 miles that show better thread wear.  I also have a pair of Adrenaline 11 GTS with around 250 + miles on them that have more thread remaining than some spots on my brand new Ravenna 3's.  I think the soft sole is not holding up.

Comments: Fantastic upgrade to Ravenna 2.  Broke them in on a 5 mile run and they provide a plush but yet nimble feel.  I loved Ravenna 2's because they feel light and I love the way they roll effortlessly.   The positive improvements in this 3 version are the plush upper and roomer toe area.  The only complaint I had about the Ravenna 2 was the tight toe box which becomes an issue on long runs.  These new shoes are more comfortable without compromising weight.  They are perhaps not as svelte as the Ravenna 2 but overall I give them a 9 on a 1-10 scale.
