      Finally, the perfect shoe

      By DGD

      About Me Avid Athlete

      Pros

      • Comfortable
      • Cushions Impact

      Cons

      • Narrow / Tight

      Best Uses

      • Dry Weather
      • Endurance Training
      • Gym

      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.

      disappointed with this upgrade

        • Poor Arch Support

          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!!!!

          Only Shoes I Buy

          By Katy07

          from Seoul, SK

          About Me Gym Rat

          Pros

          • Comfortable
          • Good Traction
          • Lightweight

          Cons

          • Poor Cushioning

          Best Uses

          • Gym
          • Trail Running
          • Walking
          • With Orthotics/Inserts

          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.

          • Bulky
          • Changed My Stride

          Best Uses

          • Walking

          Just disappointed. That arch "feel" that my defyances always had is gone with this design. Glad I didn't buy these closer to marathon time. The search is on to get "my shoe" back.

            I've been running in the Adrenaline GTS for about 7 years, but the last time I went into my local running store, the sales associate recommended I try the Defyance. I've been really happy with it so far! It has the same comfort and familiar feel of the Adrenaline GTS, but lighter. (I don't need the extra support of the GTS, so I love having a lighter shoe). I would highly recommend this (and would encourage Adrenaline GTS lovers to give it a try!)
