Additional Information

Live large with the luxurious ride of the Trance 12. This shoe has a taste for the finer technologies in life, like a Segmented Crash Pad that articulates the midsole for a perfectly smooth heel-to-toe transition. We moved the heel counter to the outside of the shoe for even more interior comfort, plus built-in bootie-like design for a silky feel. This shoe is so plush that, pretty soon, it will be on an episode of MTv® Cribs.

I have been an ASICS girl for a long time. I went to a store to get fitted for the right shoe, and she brought me as ASICS that would work, but asked me to try the Brooks. The difference was appreciable enough for me to buy the Brooks Trance 12! They stabilize my foot (I strike on the outside and roll in) so I have no hip pain after a run now.
I have read some comments about poor wear, but I have not had them long enough to make that determination.
They are my new shoe of choice! My Dad started running a very loooong time ago, and Brooks were what he wore. I like that aspect too :) He would love the shoe choices available now - weren't as many when he was here.

I absolutely love these shoes, except that they wore through the material on the right shoes, where your ankle enters the shoe. I thought maybe my ankle was wearing it down, but I've watched my gait/stride, and my ankle doesn't wear it down. So disappointed because these are EXTREMELY comfortable and great shoes! Unfortunately, I have to return them.

    Best Uses

    • Work

    I wanted to use these for work since I am literally on my feet for 8 hours and to work out at the gym. I bought these shoes after reading the great reviews but the left shoe hurts the top of my feet at the end of the laces. I am going to try to stretch them out because the right shoe is comfortable but I have to say they aren't what everyone raved about-I have the GTS 14 and they are much more comfortable

        I love this shoe and was thrilled that I found a shoe that I really loved. I have bounced around between styles and feel like I'm buying a new one each time. I was thrilled that I found a Brooks shoe becuase they tend not to make huge changes between styles. I was so disappointed that they no longer make this shoe. I have tried to wear the transcend and did not like it at all.

          • With Orthotics/Inserts

          I like Trance because I have a wide feet, yet size 7 1/2 medium fits well. It's difficult to find size wide shoes, yet when I order Trance, I don't have to try it on, it fits every time. Thank you. I have high arch so I use i use with my orthotics and it's very stable, expecially the heels. The ball of my feet and toes tend to be problematic since the cushions seem to be thinner. But it's doable.
