Who should buy the Ravenna 7
The 7th iteration of the Brooks Ravenna remains true to essence as a high-mileage shoe with just the right amount of support. You might want to consider this shoe if:
- You are a marathon (or half-marathon) runner who wants a comfortable platform
- You have mild overpronation and want a stability shoe with enough cushioning
Updates to the Brooks Ravenna 7
- Reengineered mesh upper for a sleeker design and more ventilation
- A new adjustable saddle that provides a secure and custom fit
Durable traction in the Ravenna 7
The Omni Grooves in the shoe’s outsole works perfectly with the midsole’s Omni Flex Grooves. It delivers added flexibility without sacrificing cushioning. It delivers an effortless forefoot ride.
The outsole unit of the Brooks Ravenna 7 uses the HPR Plus that gives durable traction through its high abrasion-resistant capacity. The blown rubber also works well with the outsole technology since it offers not only flexibility and durability but also a responsive ride.
Reliable performance with the Ravenna 7
The midsole utilizes the BioMoGo DNA midsole cushioning which is believed to be more reliable than the standard MoGo midsole. It is an environment-friendly alternative that delivers a more flexible and softer running experience. It works well with the Diagonal Rollbar (DRB) which serves as the dual-density foam that reduces overpronation.
The Omega Flex Grooves in the shoe’s midsole is also a great help in improving the midsole flexibility without affecting the cushioning. When at rest, the grooves provide support and when it flexes, it flexes openly, achieving its maximum flexibility capacity.
Ravenna 7, and its latest version, the Ravenna 10, use a reliable mesh upper that delivers maximum breathability and comfort. It has moisture-wicking capacity, keeping the foot cool and dry. It has an adjustable saddle that extends to the heel, wrapping the midfoot for a more secure and customized fit. Lastly, synthetic overlays were designed to deliver a secure and snug fit.
