My mom has stability issues, and these are the shoes her doctor recommended. They are super comfortable and make a huge difference in easing the foot pain she has 24/7. She walks more comfortably now, and more confidently. Couldn't be any more pleased than I am!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ann Great cushion; great stability; fit not good for me.
I loved Brooks Beast back before it was turned into Ariel for women. It provided great cushion and motion control, and probably still does. On this model, the toe box was not as high as I needed and the heel was too wide. My heel came out of the back even with the laces in the last hole. I always have a hard time finding shoes that fit in both toe box and heel, so this shoe just didn't happen to fit the way it used to, but it would fit others--i'd recommend trying it if you need cushion and motion control. I am disappointed that Dick's doesn't carry the women's version in store, only the men's. Also that Brooks doesn't go down to size 7 in men's, when I could have tried it on in the store.

Rated 1 out of 5 by shoesearcher Brooks Ariel have changed
I have been wearing Brooks Ariels for years based on a Dr suggestion as treatment for plantar fasciits. I was excited to find such a great on-line offer for the shoes I needed and Dick's Sporting Goods delivered with high marks.
I ordered the Same Brand, Same Model, Same size as I've been wearing for years.
Brooks changed their design on the new Woman's Ariel shoe. This new design has a narrow toe area. I tried wearing them around my house for 2 days and they squeezed so tight they cause my toes to go numb.
Very disappointing, with my plantar fasciitis, I searched for a long time to find shoes that would allow me to maintain a job where I am on my feet for hours and now I have to start the Shoe Search all over again.

I'm a jogger and normally buy Nikes, well my feet hurt so bad after running in these that it took me 3 days to recoup. I took them back as they were not for me. I guess my feet are used to Nikes.

I have been a fan of this shoe for many years. Dick's has the shoe at a very good price. I wear orthotics and have pronation issues but this shoe takes care of both of these problems.

This is the best support sneaker I have purchased. I am a severe over pronator and this shoe is perfect for me.

The brooks ariel sneakers are wonderful and the only shoes i can wear for my plantar fasciitis. They are well-cushioned and prevent the pronating problems i have. I would probably buy more of them if the Dicks store carried them in the store and not only online.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LisaR Finally: the right shoe for me!
After trying out a couple of shoes in training for walking a half-marathon, ending up being very sore and hobbling around after my training walks, I knew I had to do something different. Especially because I have flat feet and extra pounds to carry around.I was thankful to have spoken with a salesman, Scott, at the Park Meadows mall Dick's store who completely understood my dilemma and recommended this shoe for me. Since then, I'm happy to report that my training walks have not left me in severe pain with swollen ankles. These shoes are worth the price I paid for them!

Purchased since they said were good for flat feet, t was the truth! They are truly comfortable shoes and really seem to help my foot pain.
