However, the last pair I got back in early February were a different "style" of Brooks. Previously I'd got Adrenaline, but this time I thought I'd try Ravenna. Feck me has that been a mistake.
Happy to start with, very cushioned and the "motion control" was/is great. BUT .. despite them being a size 8.5 (as the previous pairs) and supposedly being a regular width they feel a lot "snugger".
I suspect they've probably been built to a different size spec all together.
Bottom line? As the mileage goes up these things are beating the crap out of my toes.
I've been slathering the toes in vas' and performing remedial surgery on blisters... but it just can't go on.
I'm thinking I'll throw in the towel and either go back to Adrenaline's or even go back to ASICS...
