    Comments about Defyance 7:

    Like some who've commented, I had the Defyance 6. Actually those were my FIRST real running shoes and I LOVED them! When I went for my next pair, no brainer I bought the Defyance 7, assuming they were essentially the same but different colors. Boy was I WRONG!! I have had nothing but problems with these shoes. I feel like my foot is slipping to the outside (suppination) my entire workout. And they feel too wide...even after I've been running and my feet swell. (And let me tell you, I have wide feet!). I have tried thicker socks, lacing them different ways, inserts... I actually came on this site looking for recommendations and found that I'm not the only one with these problems. :( And it makes me sad because I feel like I've wasted my money and all the time I've spent trying to figure out why these make my feet hurt and my runs uncomfortable. I think it's time to give up and find a different shoes. That is money down the drain. :(

    Comments about Defyance 7:

    Ever since the Ghost changed a couple versions ago, I have been looking for the "right" shoe and coming up short. Finally happened upon these at an LRS, and while I had to go up a half size for added width (other Brooks have always been true to size for me), they are working out well. They feel very supportive without being stiff and heavy or throwing my stride oiut of whack like stability shoes do. Why they are not more popular, I do not know. But I for one am glad I found them.

    Poor arch support

    Cons

    • Poor Arch Support

    Best Uses

    Comments about Defyance 7:

    I am a marathon runner & used the Defyance 6 and was very happy with them. I did put a different insole (athletic one) in them and was fine with the arch support. The Defyance 7 does have less arch support & I am little disappointed even with the insole in them. That is a major part of the shoe and is something that you don't want to change. I would recommend trying them because it is a great quality shoe. Holds up well and you get good mileage out of them (325 miles per pair).

        Comments about Defyance 7:

        I loved the Defyance 6 and was very disappointed when they changed to the 7. The new changes make it a like a totally different shoe. Now that I can not find anymore Defyance 6 out for sale, I am struggling to find a new shoe. Please change back to the style of the 6!!!!

        Cons

        • Poor Cushioning

        • With Orthotics/Inserts

        Comments about Defyance 7:

        Since getting these shoes fitted to my gait and running style, these have been the only brand/model I buy.

        Great overall shoes, I wear them for treadmill/city running, spin class, and at the gym. They're lightweight and provide good shock absorption. I did not find the stock inserts supportive enough; I use custom insoles given to me by my chiropractor.

        And yes, I am so in love with these shoes that I have them shipped from my hometown Seattle to my current residence, Seoul.
