This is the third time I've purchased the Ariel by Brooks. (I own another pair of the Ariel '18 bought a year ago, and retiring pair of Ariel '16s.) If you're an overpronator like me, it's the very best athletic shoe I've ever found. Despite its pricey tag, I think it's worth it compared to competitors' shoes for overpronators. The others are good but this one is THE BEST. Love that comes in wide, although most athletic shoes do. I use my own orthotics and feel like a stable powerhouse in this shoe. I credit this shoe with keeping me running and loving to exercise.
About This Item
Nice solid shoe
I'm new to the Brooks line, and this is my second pair, the first being the Ghost 10. The Ariel "18 is not as comfortable to me as the Ghost, and I went up an entire size, but feel I almost should have went up another 1/2 size! I do suffer from a bunion on my right foot, so that doesn't help in finding a shoe that fits AND is comfortable. This particular shoe feels very stable, but If I was to order another
pair, it would be the Ghost 10!
