I was just released back to running after having my right Achilles tendon completely rupture in March 2010, and bought these as a "Welcome Back" shoe. I've run in Adrenaline 9s and 10s, so this was going to be interesting. I was really surprised at how comfortable and cushioned the Green Silence is. It felt very supportive and stable. The lacing system is kinda weird, but it works incredibly well. I'll definitely use these for tempo runs, intervals, and races. Once I'm back to full strength, I'd like to use these as an everyday running minimalist shoe----they are just that good. Great work Brooks!

Let me start by saying that I wore the green/black Silences most of last year for four of my Tri's including one 13.1 miler & one 9 miler as well as one full marathon.

So I bought the blue/navy Silences for my first marathon of 2012. Three weeks later I am still paying the price with a slight ligament tear on my inner ankle.

The shoes just didn't hold up to the long distance. I should have known going in (it's my fault; not the shoes). But just be aware that this shoe is meant for shorter races. And if you do plan to do a marathon in them, make sure to do lots of training in them first.

Thanks for reading

    Comments about Green Silence:

    I wore this shoe in three races 2-5k's, a 10k and as a tempo trainer. Overall this shoe is lighter than most tempo trainers (i.e. Launch) and is heavier than most racing flats (i.e T7). With that being said this shoe provides enough cushioning for the longer races, but may lack enough support for the longer races. During my 10k I rained heavy for the last two miles and traction was better than I expected. I'm a neutral runner and I consider my stride to be efficient.

    Comments about Green Silence:

    I wanted to like the Pure series, but they were too narrow for me. The Green Silence is now my go-to shoe for 5-10k races and track workouts. Great, fast ride with a roomier toe box than most flats/minimalist shoes.

      GS provides very good cushioning for such a light shoe. I really love it for 5ks and speed training. As for runs over six or seven miles, I find myself needing a bit more cushioning and prefer the Pureflow.

      Comments about Green Silence:

      Love the Green Silence, especially all of the different color options. I was late to adopt this shoe, but it is super comfortable, light weight, and works great for short or long distances. The soles do wear more quickly than my Adrenalines, but I'm going to stock up with a few pairs of these. I would and have recommended for others to purchase these shoes.

      Green Silence - Great shoes

      Comments about Green Silence:

      This was my 2nd pair - I loved the first ones I got on clearance at a local shop but really wanted a more subtle color than the yellow and red - so I ordered the brown ones from Brooks - love the shoes - lightweight and comfortable. What I like is that they are approaching the free running movement (low heal, etc) but not too extreme - a great compromise. Plus they look cool.
