Chrissie Wellington, 2011 Ford Ironman Triathlon Championships, photo courtesy of Brooks RunningChrissie Wellington's fourth victory in Kona should be the stuff of legend! My wife and I were together at the kitchen table the other day enjoying our morning coffee. The Ravenna has Brooka€™s DNA energy absorption material underfoot for a smooth comfortable ride, and the biodegradable BioMoGO midsole a€“ a plus for those of who are environmentally conscious. Herea€™s where we get to the coffee part -- Ia€™d always thought of the Ravenna as a lighter weight shoe suitable for long distance racing, like halfs and marathons. When I slipped these on, I found the shoe wraps the arch and provides a secure feel even when the shoe is laced loosely (the way I like my trainers). A measure of a good stability shoe for me is whether the shoe dampens foot and knee motion quickly during the stride, while supporting my arch. Doug Balogh is a regular race age-division winner, the 2010 Southern Indiana Classic Marathon Champion, and the 2012 National Champion at the USA Track & Field 10K Trail Race in the 60-64 age division. Chrissie Wellington is, after yesterday, the four time winner of the Ford Ironman Triathlon World Championships.
Larry has experienced the sport as an athlete, coach, magazine publisher and now, journalist and blogger. My pair has a black mesh, dark blue overlays, an orange wrap around the arch, orange rubber on the heel and bright neon-orange laces.
Some of the competitors limit the maximum foot width the shoe will accommodate by positioning an overlay just below the bottom lace. To beat the heat, I headed to the trails for some up-tempo work under the canopy of tall trees. The shoe does provide stability under the arch, but consistent with the moderate-sized stability post, the stability of the Ravenna is moderate.
There are a couple of questions Ia€™ve not addressed yeta€¦a€¦a€¦a€?Who should wear it, and when should it be worn?a€? I recommend this shoe for moderate pronators. Brooks has positioned the price, and all that extra cushioning, at the same point as a regular trainer.
This hyper-light PureDrift from Brooks spread toes with two split grooves that allows forefoot to flex through its three functional units. When you really want to feel free as a bird to fly in the sky, just remove the sockliner for a pure zero drop experience. His first article, on Don Bowden, America's first sub 4 minute miler, was published in RW in 1983.
Sure enough, they were around 3 mm thicker in both the heel and forefoot than most long distance trainers. For a person who likes to have lots of room up front in their trainers, they are out of luck.
The toe box was shaped well and I did not experience any chaffing of toes or pressure points that might lead to blisters.
This performance was preceded by an accident on her bike just a few weeks before the Kona race!


Larry has published several magazines on athletics, from American Track & Field to the U.S. After weighing them, that added cushioning makes them about an ounce heavier than most long distance trainers. I was paying particular attention to the transition, because thata€™s where a heavier shoe becomes a a€?clunkera€?.
In honor of Chrissie Wellington, her sponsor, Brooks Running shoes, has developed a special and limited racing footwear, the Wellington Racing shoe, from which the profits will be donated in honor of a dear friend of Chrissie's, Jon Blais, who is the only triathlete with ALS to ever complete the Ironman Triathlon. The days of the white upper with accented overlays over a white blown rubber sole are gone.
But with the added weight, I reach instead for my lightweights for track workouts and race days. On our track in the store, it was easy to feel that extra 3mm of cushioning underfoot, providing a very luxurious soft ride, but not so soft that you feel unstable. The stability post is a€?moderatea€? in size, and based on that, the shoe seemed best suited for a neutral to moderately-pronating runners. I purposely tried to find rocks on the road to step on to test the ability of the shoe to protect the foot from protrusions of sharp rocks.
A higher platform might lead to some instability by raising the runnera€™s center of gravity, which could lead to possible ankle twisting.
Add to that, no pressure points, no internal slippage, no chafing that might lead to a blister in a longer run.
The Pure Project line consists of four minimal shoes—the Pure Cadence, the Pure Connect, Pure Flow, and Pure Grit—each aimed at a different type of runner. I could feel the incremental weight of the shoe at 12 oz, compared to say my regular trainer (11 oz.), but I really dona€™t care about the additional weight in a trainer.
The Pure Cadence is the stability shoe of the group, designed to allow overpronators to experience a minimal shoe. The positioning of the lacing and overlays make it very accommodating to a runnera€™s preference for toe box roominess.
Key features include a supportive upper, a thick pod on the outer edge of the sole unit, as well as internal support in the sole unit to add additional stability.Brooks Pure Cadence ImpressionsHaving heard quite a bit about the Pure Project line in the weeks leading up to their release, I was excited to try the Pure Cadence. I like my trainers loose-fitting in the toe box and, unlike some of the competitors snug shoes, these give me the room I want. From the first run, a short three-mile tempo through my neighborhood, I loved their snug fit and the smooth ride.
Between the flexible sole and the lighter weight, they made for a great option for speed or track days, though I wouldn’t recommend them for trails. Having tried other minimal shoes, I was expecting a bit of soreness in my legs the next day, but didn’t have any issues the next day. Despite a lack of soreness, I would recommend easing into these shoes, as the overall experience is different from most other running shoes.One of the advantages of minimal shoes that many runners focus on is the encouragement of a midfoot strike. As an injury-prone runner, I’ve been working toward improving my gait and footstrike, and I did feel a difference when running in the Pure Cadence.
Post-marathon, I had noticed that my gait had slipped a bit, and I was going back to my old heel-striking ways.


With regular runs in the Pure Cadence, I have found that even in my everyday trainers, my gait has improved considerably. Overall, I’ve enjoyed running in the Pure Cadence, and they’ll stay in my rotation for speed work and the occasional race.Brooks Pure Cadence Sole UnitThe sole unit features two special elements to provide adequate stability for overpronators. The first and most immediately noticeable element is a small pod, located on the outside of the middle part of the sole, and is meant to prevent the foot from rolling inward and stressing the ankle. While I was concerned that it would feel awkward when I first looked at the shoes, I didn’t feel it on the run. The other main support feature in the sole unit is an internal bar running through the shoe diagonally.
The Toe Flex, located near the big toe, is meant to allow the big toe to work independently to encourage runners to use their own balance, rather than letting the shoe do the work for them. The second feature, which is one of my favorite parts about the Pure Cadence, is the Ideal Heel.
The Ideal Heel is a smooth inverted heel, which is meant to encourage a midfoot strike.Brooks Pure Cadence Upper UnitThe main feature of the upper unit on the Pure Cadence is the NavBand, a thick elastic band running across the midfoot.
Meant to secure the foot in place and help the shoe conform to the runner’s foot, the NavBand is a nice addition, and adds to the overall snug and secure fit of the shoe.
Overall, the upper’s construction is relatively simple and smooth, constructed mostly of lightweight mesh and nylon. While the upper doesn’t hold up well in rainy conditions—my feet were wet pretty quickly—it would be great for running in the heat. Another advantage to the upper is the smooth interior, great for blister-prone runners.Brooks Pure Cadence OpinionThe Pure Cadence would be a great option for light overpronating runners looking to try more minimal shoes, though they probably wouldn’t be a great for serious overpronators that normally require heavy support.
When she’s not running through her favorite parks, you can find her shopping, cooking, or watching her favorite football teams.

I do understand that everyone is different but this shoe is probably one of the best shoes I have ever owned.
I have not had any issues on my long runs with them.The only issue I had was that I ordered a new pair of the cadences and the shoe was cutting into my foot. I called Brooks with the issue and they are sending me a new pair of the pure cadence 2.VERY QUICK ON GETTING BACK TO ME AND VERY GOOD CUSTOMER SUPPORT.Thanks Ryan B for the great customer support!!!!
I’m a heavier, injured runner and these certainly help you get forward onto the fore foot instantly.
They’re a great median between my Nike Eclipse long distance road pounding show and my Mizuno Elxirs for race day.
