    Finally, I have had the time to go out and test my latest two new running shoes. I broke down and bought some new shoes after having a good run with my Asics Kayano 16.

    My Asics brought me great joys over the last 300 plus miles running plus about 100 plus miles in walking use. I tried to keep them to just running, but that did not happen. These bad boys have been through it all. From my great accomplishment of finishing the Urbanathlon last year, through the stress fractures and injuries, to finally getting back in stride.

    It is time to finally move these to just general use shoes. No more running in these bad boys. I have had to add some generic insoles for my poor fat, flat feet that needed some extra support. It has been a good time together, but time has ended. I really wanted to buy a pair of the Kayano 17, but looking at a $160 price tag stopped those thoughts

    What was I to do?

    I bought two pairs of running shoes for under $200. One for races and one for training. I figured I owed it to myself after all the running I have done and all the running I have coming up this summer and fall.

    The first pair I bought that arrive are the Brooks Ravenna 2.

    I ran 8 miles last Sunday. I ran two 4 mile intervals testing out my two new shoes. I ran four miles, felt really good. Stopped for about 2 minutes to change shoes, drink some water and GU and took off for another 4.

    The first thing I noticed about these shoes were how light they were compared to my Asics. I don't know if this is like a placebo effect where because they were so new everything felt great, but I really did not think I was wearing shoes. My Asics have been abused and used with insoles added so the weight difference was well noted.

    A shoe that was reviewed very highly by a Running Magazine, the Ravenna 2 is very comfortable. It is a light shoe that retains good impact absorbance. The shoe is flexible and feels fast. The shoe broke in very quickly and will take custom insoles. The overall support is good, especially considering how little weight it carries. The shoe looks better than the photo in person and does not stand out as flashy.

    A heavy runner might look elsewhere because this shoe may not provide the cushioning they require. A runner involved in very long distance training my find the low weight an advantage, but may wish for more absorbancy, especially in the case of road running.

    PS. I have logged over 100 miles in these shoes and they held up very well. I like them on dirt paths better than I expected. They also performed very well on roads. The shoes are best overall in mixed running. The tread and cushioning has proved very durable and I fully expect to get 250-300 miles on these shoes. Great for a treadmill or very good on a dirt path and durable. I even bought a pair of Ravenna 3!

    I'm a runner/triathlete from East Tennessee. Presently I put about 40 mi/week on these shoes. I chose the Ravenna 2 to be my every day training shoe after Runner's World editors made this shoe their choice compared to similar shoes. The Brooks DNA does not dissapoint. The Ravenna 2's are soft when walking around and firm when pounding asphalt. They are light and supportive for me, a mild overpronator. They support my heel and feel perfect around my arches/midfoot. My only disappointment is the "rough" feel on the inside of the toe box. You will need good socks, or blisters on your pinky toe are a possibility due to exposed stitching.

    The DNA technology is great. This shoe is light and will make you feel fast. New favorite shoe. I run 20 miles weekly. Only issue is the sole/tread runs flat after 6 months, about average...maybe a bit early. But I bought it again. No wonder it's such an award winner and fav among the running community.

    When I ramped up my running 2 years ago, my feet were constantly sore. I was absolutely miserable and began avoiding my workouts due to discomfort. Frustrated, I went to a shoe store for runners and was recommended this shoe based on my tendency to overpronate. Once I left the store with these shoes, my life changed. I could walk, jog, and even sprint (downhill) without even a hint of discomfort.

    After hundreds of miles, my Ravenna 2s are battered, tattered, and uniquely odoriferous. Although I have ordered replacement Ravenna 3s, I will never, ever get rid of my Ravenna 2s... just in case that day comes when I need to run pain free for hours-and-hours from a relentless zombie horde.

    Switched to this Brooks model after wearing Saucony for the last few years. Chose the Ravenna 2 based upon reviews and discounted price since the 3 edition was released. Maybe I should have paid attention to one thing that some said and that was sizing. This is a snug fit shoe so moving up a half size would make sense for most. Like the light feeling but cushioning could be better. All in all an ok shoe but I'll be going back to Saucony when these wear out.

    I purchased these shoes at the end of last year. They are holding up very well and am wearing them as my everyday shoe and for running. I have a second pair being modified with a lift on the left shoe. I tend to have sensitive joints just behind the big toe and these shoes have alleviated that issue.

    I really see no wearing at this point. I am not a big runner, just 35 miles so far this month. I have used these shoes both on an inside track and outside both paved and gravel roads. I am very pleased and thinking about buying a third pair while the price is right. I originally paid $100 at a local running store.
