The New Brooks Anthem 2 shoes are now available for runners. The shoes are an immediate upgrade to the first Anthem and they look as modern as many Brooks fans expect. It goes without saying that the first Anthem release was a good release. It lacked a bit of cushioning compared to other neutral shoes. But the shoes were not bulky, they had good responsiveness and they were even chosen for their versatility as casual shoes. One problem they came with was the durability, which wasn’t helped by runners going out in the rain. However, the Anthem 2 fix many of these issues.
Brooks came a long way from its humble beginnings in 1914. The Brooks Ravena 10 are living proof of just how far the manufacturer can go to offer runners reliable shoes. All eyes were on the Ravena series to fix the comfort issues it came with for some runners with the 9th release. So has Brooks managed to improve the series while adding something new and appealing for today’s runner?
Runners looking for the next step up from an entry-level shoe can consider the Brooks Transcend 6. Vastly superior to the likes of Anthem and Anthem 2, the shoes are come with a few new technologies, such as DNA Loft and added guide drails for arguably better support.
