Shoe of the Week: Brooks Ravenna 7

Brooks has officially released one of their best shoes under the Stability category; the all-new Brooks Ravenna 7!
Since its initial release, the Brooks Ravenna became one of the favorite road shoes of overpronators when it comes to logging long miles during training or running in long distance categories. Durable, supportive, and well-cushioned, the Ravenna 7 is a sweet promise not only for Brooks fans, but also to runners who crave for a top performing stability running pair.
So what are the key characteristics that we can expect from the Brooks Ravenna 7? Check these out!
1.) A seamless design on the Upper:
                The seamless mesh upper of the Brooks Ravenna 7 provides more breathability and support thanks to its welded overlays. The reinforced saddle helps the upper to secure perfectly around your foot and provide more stability during you run.  The well-padded tongue and collar of the Ravenna 7 offers a plushier and comfortable fit for this structured shoe. 
2.) A newly developed Midfoot and Forefoot Zones:
                Brooks made a splendid combination of efficiency and support by updating the Midfoot and Forefoot areas of the Ravenna 7. This pair has a firm Midfoot Transition zone that promotes a faster heel-to-toe transition for each stride. The Forefoot Energy zone or “Forefoot Pods” of the Ravenna 7 enables the runner to have an energy return which leads to a “bouncy” ride. The blown rubber outsole was integrated to provide durability for long runs.  
3.) A BioMoGo DNA foam.
                     The BioMoGo DNA foam offers an adaptive and soft cushioning material. This durable EVA midsole material boasts a softer and more flexibility as it adjusts to your foot in every step, maintaining natural gait efficiency.

The BioMoGo midsole is a big treat for Overpronators. The cushioning and responsiveness of the Ravenna 7 is well-balanced. It sticks with your natural gait and provides comfort as you go the distance. This shoe is a good alternative for traditional and heavy stability running shoes in the market.
