Brooks Ravenna 2 Shoe

THE SELL: A comfy shoe for moderate overpronators. THE TEST: In a word, plush. The Ravenna boasts a techy new gel-like cushioning intended to adjust its firmness depending on how heavy you are. Hard to say if all that is happening. What we can tell you is that every heel strike felt supported and energizing. And we felt fast. "The comfort of a beach cruiser," wrote one tester, "with a road bike's zip." Most of our test crew agreed that it's an extremely well-balanced shoe—sufficiently soft for heel and midfoot strikers but not squishy—and a great choice for long training runs and marathons. THE VERDICT: It's so light, flexible, and cushy, you'll forget you're wearing a stability shoe. 10.8 oz; 10-mm heel-to-toe drop; brooksrunning.com
