Perfect fit, finally!
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Rachelle from VT on Monday, August 22, 2016
I have problematic feet: wide toe box, average mid-foot, slightly narrow heel, tendency toward mild pronation, and not the greatest arches. After spending a fortune on return shipping over the years, I had sworn off ever trying to purchase shoes online again, but I am so glad I took a gamble one last time. I've never had shoes that fit my feet so well. If I get wide shoes to accommodate my toe box, the whole shoe is too wide; my arches aren't supported and my heel slips. If I don't get wide shoes, my toes are crammed together. The Brooks Ravenna actually have enough room for my toes, and the lacing system is an added bonus with an integrated extra bit of arch support when you cinch them at the mid-foot. I sized up half a size per the recommendation of other reviews and it was just right. Incidentally, I also tried a different model of Brooks that didn't have the pronation support and they were not good for me. I plan on exchanging them for a second pair of these to keep for when the first ones wear out.
