A middle child to the neutral and support category, the Brooks Ravenna 4 is a guidance running shoe that is equally as impressive in the looks department as it is in terms of performance.
Back for the fourth time, the Ravenna features a bit more cushioning than the previous versions, and is also more flexible in the forefoot thanks to reconfigured outsole grooves. The shoe features a carry-over Brooks BioMoGo midsole with DNA technology for customized cushioning that is both responsive and supportive. Another key feature in the Ravenna 4 is a midfoot saddle with an adjustable band that allows runners to customize the amount of support they desire by simply pulling on the laces. The shoe is loaded with a high-grade rubber outsole with strategically placed traction lugs for ground-hugging grip on the road or track.
All in all, the Ravenna 4 is an excellent choice for runners in search of a versatile shoe that offers mild pronation support. The shoe is especially ideal for runners with a medium-to-high arch.
