Product Summary

The Brooks Revel is an entry-level running shoe from the reputable and popular brand Brooks. These shoes feature a breathable, woven mesh upper and a springy foam midsole intended to help you bounce out of each stride.

The midsole is thinner than what you’ll see on many other Brooks options, but the Revels should still hold up for a few hundred miles of pounding the pavement. Available in nearly 10 colorways, Brooks says that the Revel is best for running for fitness, training for a milestone, and walking.
