Brooks RAVENNA 2
With all the new technology in this update, it's practically a new shoe.

Really good pair of trainers. I did initially buy Adidas Sequence 4 but had so many blisters took them back to sweatshop, 8 pairs tested these came out well on top! Very happy good for half marathon and 10Ks. Continue reading...

I've been running with the whole GTS series since 07, and have been pretty satisfied, but the GTS-11 is different in that it has a stiff heel "cradle" that caused me some issues on the outside of my foot. My old GTS-10's are pretty much shot, so I am trying out the Ravenna-2 as my next shoe. Ask me again in 30 days, after a hundred miles in them, and I'll give you an apples-to-apples comparison!

Hi Jonathan, how are the R2's going? Did you get your 100 miles done?

 I've just bought a pair today from Sweatshop.  I had done over 500miles in my GTS11's and I reckon that was about 100 miles too many, so I'm looking forward to taking the R2's out for a spin.
