Do these come up wide or feel normal in the usual width shoe? If I wanted narrow fit they would need to be ordered you see so wanted others opinions as to how they fit. Thank you.

Brooks usually come up wider in the toe area but I've worn them very successfully and I've got normal feet. The shoes were the 14 model mind so I can't comment on the 16 model.

I run at the moment in brooks ravenna 8 which are standard width. The toe box area is ok but does feel a bit big now I have run them in a bit. The adrenaline comes with a narrow fit that I am tempted by (The ravenna is only one width). Ooh should I take the plunge?? They look nice!

Could you wear them for a bit around the house and then if they're not right, change them? I do think there's a tad more room in our shoes in the winter that we don't have in the heat.

I got the ravenna in October and yes it is much colder now. Maybe I need a winter skinny footed pair and a summer swollen sweaty footed pair lol. Yes I might get them and wear around the house, good idea.

Do a few jumps on one leg as that's basically what we do when we run and it's the best way of testing the toe area.

I think brooks are getting narrower in the toe box hence my not buying them. I loved my Cascadia 8’s but couldn’t get any more. The newer models are way narrower in the toe box Way more shoe but not enough toe 😃🙄

Well I guess if they arrive and are too narrow for running they should be fine for walking!! My feet are small and narrow so have issues with getting shoes to fit, I was surprised to be in the ravenna. They were only £20 new so I shall see. Ideally I would like two pairs of trainers that I can run in just in case of issues. I got caught out last time with blisters and ankle issues. I don't want that saga again! I also need hand holding to get out too.....
