I've had numerous injuries in the past and you can't beat these shoes for putting in tons of miles. Not very stylish but if you are a serious runner that doesn't matter.

Had been experiencing some foot and knee pain recently after running a half marathon a few weeks back with my Asics GT-2150. At that point I knew my trusty Asics had reached the end of it's lifespan and I needed a replacement. After reviewing a lot of choices for I ended up deciding to try the Brooks Ravenna 3. Received them today and as soon as I put them on I knew I was going to love this shoe. Wanted to break them in so I was able to run a quick 4 miles and no foot or knee pain experienced. Enjoy the support and cushion felt during the run. I am now sold on Brooks and they now have a customer for life.

I bought these for my husband who recently ran his first marathon. He was thrilled. He loves Brooks and says there's nothing better. He'd recommend them for any runner.

This is my spouse's first pair of real running shoes. They are not the most expensive, but "Runner's World" rated them pretty highly, and they seemed right for his feet, so I ordered them. He loves them. They give the right amount of support (he also uses insoles), they are light and flexible enough, and they fit, according to him, "fantastic!" He loves them. They were perfect for our very budget-conscious but very practical household.

Great looking shoe with excellent comfort and support. Working 12 hour shifts, I need that in a shoe. These shoes perform like no other.

I purchased these for my father (age 62) to replace his 3 year old Ravennas that had seen many hours on walking on a treadmill. He could not believe how good they felt (and how worn his old sneakers had become). He has a normal BMI (about 24). He has no desire to wear any other sneaker.

I bought these as a change-up from the Ghost line, just to try a touch of support, which I don't think I really need anyway. Great cushioning. Huge forefoot lugs, which I find to be a slight overcompensation for wear, almost to the point of feeling mushy, but this will improve with time. I give 4 stars for comfort instead of 5 because the location of the stitch on the outside of the forefoot restricts my pinky toe from splaying out and gives it a tighter feel. I prefer more toe freedom. I also feel the bump of the forefoot cushioning unit, but this too may be another overcompensation for extending the cushioning life, and I anticipate it may settle some as I have only about 40 miles on these so far. These did not have that 'slipper' comfort out of the box like I feel with the Ghosts, but I believe these are a shoe that requires some break in and may find their peak at a time when most shoes begin to see their better days behind them. Still a great shoe, I just look forward to them more after I have about 150 miles or so on them. If Brooks updates the next version by moving the forefoot stitching and allowing more mesh on the outside forefoot to allow more toe splay, that would be sweet.

The sizing of this shoe is perfect. I use it for cross training and running and it provides great support, but not too much, for both activities. I love them! Wish I had bought a pair sooner!

Awesome shoe. Got fitted at a running store for mild pronation, they recommended Brooks Adrenaline. These fit me perfectly, like walking on air, have better colors than the Adrenaline. Actually have had complete strangers ask me about these. Zappos service rocks, I'll be a lifelong customer.

I will start this review saying I am coming off Brooks Glycerin...they were pretty good, but over time, I began to develop some leg pains in my shin. Having battled shin related trouble before, I decided I needed a touch more support. My foot is often hard to fit to a shoe well due to falling in a grey-area of between neutral and support...usually support shoes are too much and give me too much motion, while neutral shoes don't cushion my step appropriately. Well, the Ravenna 3 was a total home-run right out of the box for me. My first run with them was a 5 miler on a non-paved surface and my legs actually felt great after; within 2 weeks of using these shoes, my shin pain dissipated and I look forward to all my runs. I think this shoe is great for anyone who needs just a little more support than what a neutral shoe has to offer. They also look awesome (Black/Blue). Size is true as far as I'm concerned. The toe box is quite large for a medium width shoe which is also great for me!

Love the look, very comfortable & great cushion. They run a bit narrower than I'm used to, but overall a really good shoe.

Decent shoes. I don't use them for running. I just have them for everyday use. They are comfortable, but seem a little small for their marked size. I recommend ordering a half size up.

Okay these shoes are a bit tricky to describe for me. They are padded and have good overall support but if you are looking for something above minimal feel then these are not the shoes for you. I hope it helps my peeps in the running community.
