Brooks Ravenna 8 Review

This shoe reminds me the most of HOKA’s Clifton 2, but the cushion is a bit more firm, especially in the toe-off, and the Ravenna has a more secure midfoot fit -though not what I prefer in a tight lock-down. Essentially to me it feels like a cross between the ASICS Gel-Nimbus (14 is the […]

Brooks Neuro 2 Review

Brooks completely revamped the shoe from top to bottom, after the original version received a “meh” response from many runners. The improvements are notable, and this shoe offers appeal straight out of the box. Brooks Neuro 2 General Info When I tore into the box, I thought to myself, “Wow, these look incredibly slick and […]

Brooks Launch 4 Review

The Launch 4 continues its path of being a lightweight, responsive daily trainer that borders of the fringe of being a performance shoe. This newest installment of the launch takes on a few changes that help to lighten the shoe up a bit and improve fluidity, responsiveness, and comfort. Brooks Launch 4 General Info I […]

Brooks Caldera Review

The Caldera is a new trail shoe from Brooks. The Caldera is designed to be a responsive, well-cushioned, ultra-distance trail running shoe. It is thicker under the forefoot than any other Brooks trail shoe, and features a 4mm offset. The Caldera fills a void in the Brooks trail shoe line for something that is lighter […]

Brooks Transcend 4 Review

First off, I just love the name. I mean, who doesn’t need to rise above, overcome—Transcend—something in his/her life? And there are countless stories including my own, where running has helped us do just that. Now about this shoe, from the moment I put it on and throughout the subsequent runs, I felt like it […]

Brooks Glycerin 15 Review

The Brooks Glycerin 15 is an update to an already great shoe model. For those not familiar with the Glycerin line, it is their most cushioned shoe and its built to withstand high milage while providing comfortable and soft ride. The previous version of this shoe was outstanding. I was glad to see that the […]

Brooks Revel Review

The Brooks Revel is a new shoe in the neutral cushioning category from Brooks Running. It is meant to blend “street-style” with performance, allowing runners to use this shoe in their daily use, their daily gym routines, and daily runs. I was personally excited to test this shoe as it is a brand new edition […]

Brooks Ghost 10 review

The updated look of the Brooks Ghost 10 delivers on the same high quality as previous models. Although the upper looks different in its design, the main technologies are the same as in the Ghost 9. The fact that Brooks listened to runners and didn’t make drastic changes from a successful shoe is refreshing and […]

50 Years of Fantastic Footwear Innovation

In the beginning there were racing shoes. And runners saw that the shoes were good—for the few thin, athletic men who ran long distances at the time. Actually, they rather sucked, even for the young fast set. “Very few running shoes were available, if they could be called that,” says running shoe collector and National […]
