Made my feet hurt

I have been loyal to the Defyance shoe for a long time. The only running

I have been loyal to the Defyance shoe for a long time. The only running shoe that I have loved. However, when I got the Defiance 9, my feet hurt so much. Not only pain but numbness. I dreaded putting them on. I thought it was just me, but after reading the reviews, it seems like a common problem. I don't know what to do now because I will not order another pair of the Defiance 9 shoes. I hope they resolve these issues and come out with a defiance 10 that were like the older ones (only with better colors) :) Read More

I usually buy the Ghost model, but decided to buy these. I am a 10.5 narrow which is usually a perfect fit in Brooks. The Defyance 9 seem to run half a size short. I returned. Read More

Hi - are you making a Defyance 10? I purchased my Defyance 9 back in May 2016 and thought you would have the 10 out by now. Thank you.

The Defyance 10 will not be released until 2018.

When is the Defyance 10 coming out and will they change it back to resemble the 8? I share the disappointment of numerous other customers and cannot wear the 9. I was forced to switch to another model that I don't like but had no choice. Hoping the old defyance will make a comeback!

Unfortunately, we do not have visibility to the release date of the Defyance 10, as it will not be launched in 2017. Since this model is not expected to release in the upcoming seasons, we do not yet know how the shoe will compare to the Defyance 8 - please stay tuned! Read More

Why is this sneaker so much worse than the Defyance 8? Can you please bring back the Defyance 8?

2017/01/22 VA Rachel in VA

We appreciate your feedback and will pass it along to our Product team!

Why did you change the Defyance? The only shoe I wear is the Defyance, and now I can't wear it. The toe box is so narrow now that it is squeezing my toes together like a pair of pointy shoes. This is not something I can comfortably work out in.

We are sorry to hear that! We recommend checking out the Ghost as an alternative!

I bought this shoe and it is not a good shoe. It gives me blisters around my bunion. Also the back part of the shoe around the heel is too high! This is a really bad shoe!! I only have brooks running shoes but this is the worst ever!

2016/12/01 FL Janine

We're sorry it didn't work out for your wear pattern.
