We purchased these sneakers for our son who has orthotics. The shoe is very comfortable, sturdy and lightweight. He is going to use them primarily for running. The colors also are great. Love Zappos shipping and return policies.

Bought them to use only for races because they light and have support. Got them half size larger so they fit really great. Use them so far on two races two days in a row they work great. They have a slightly higher heel to toe drop than my training shoes (Brooks Ravvena 6) but lighter and that works for me!

I had a 5k race coming up and wanted to try a lighter shoe which provided support for my flat feet. I have worn Asics almost exclusively for thirty-five years. The first time I put the Brooks Racer ST 5 on was the morning of the race. They fit perfectly, they felt lighter, they were comfortable, and I did not have any foot problems. I would recommend this show to anyone who races and needs good support because of low arches. Steve Canbridge

For several years now, finding a great running shoe has been quite an undertaking which is reasonably priced (my limit is $100.00). Features that I look for in running shoes are lightweight, breathable, great arch support, and nicely constructed. These really hit the mark. Even though my last pair of Brooks were from my track and field days in high school, the company produced an excellent product with this line. If you by chance are running or walking in the evening or at night, the company incorporated a fantastic vibrant color. I highly recommend these shoes.

These shoes are amazing. I am an overpronator and need a supportive running shoe with good arch support. So typically my running shoes are more bulky than these. I was not used to running in something so lightweight while still getting the support that my feet need. I've already ran a couple races in these shoes and my times have improved significantly. It's not all the shoes, but I think they definitely make a difference! I was hesitant to order these because of the men's sizing, but I just ordered a half size larger like I normally do with my running shoes and they fit great! I'm very happy with these shoes and love the neon yellow color too. I hope Brooks doesn't change a thing with the next version of these so I can keep ordering this style. Also, as always Zappos was fantastic, I order everything I can through Zappos because their customer service is #1!

I'd also recommend: Can't go wrong with Brooks!
