2012 Spring-Summer Running Shoe Review

Brooks Ravenna 3, $100

men: 10.9 oz. | women: 9.1 oz.

The most noticeable feature of the Ravenna 3 is the plush feeling of the biodegradable midsole, ample from the rearfoot to the forefoot. The meticulous attention to detail in this shoe make it a standout. For example, the sliplast and sockliner help provide a silky smooth experience. This is not a shoe for those wanting a minimal amount of material between the foot and the ground, but is for distance runners who like to crank through a 20-mile run with their feet feeling fresh and unbeaten.
