Go full-tilt in these performance-enhancing neutral running shoes for women. Whether you’re racing others, or just against your personal best, our Propulsion Pods rapidly return the energy you put in to keep you at your fastest every time you lace up.

    Sent them back

    2017/03/02 | Florida |

    I don't run on a track often enough to make them worth my while. I returned them even though I liked them to get a show that I could get more mileage out of regularly.

    Yes, I would recommend this!

    I really wanted to like these shoes, I love how light weight they are. The first week the shoes were great and I was running 4+ miles on the treadmill a day! Then... they started rubbing and I would feel blisters and shin splints developing after 1.5 miles. My last Brooks were the Ghost, they lasted me longer than I expected, however, they were way too heavy. I'm going to keep these Neuros for another week to see if I can work in them (I'm not on my feet much at work) or I will return them. I've only had them 2 weeks.

    Great replacement for PureFlow

    2017/01/03 | NW Indiana |

    Like another reviewer, Brooks hooked me with the original PureFlow shoes. I tried those on, and was shocked at how amazing they felt. When I ordered these, I ordered a pair of the new PureFlow, as all the other pairs I had were finally falling apart. I was so disappointed. :-( I had ordered the Neuro just to check them out, but I'm really glad I did. They're comfortable and reminded me of the original PureFlow. Not quite as amazing, but close. They offer just enough cushioning to make me melt a little bit, the fit is typical of other Brooks shoes I've had (I get Brook's a half size big). They're not too heavy, so I still feel light and connected with my walks and runs. I really liked these shoes, and would order more! My only negative would be that they don't offer much stability when doing a lot of side to side foot work (like side lunges or skaters). But that's okay, because I prefer a more minimal shoe to help strengthen my feet muscles. But that might be someone else would want more of. I also don't want to roll my ankle because my shoe bends weird when doing a lot of changing foot work... I use these shoes for everything...weightlifting, circuit training, tabata, running, walking, hiking, etc. I've also used them on all kinds of different surfaces; gym floor, road, sidewalk, trails, etc. I just wish the colors were better. The black and white ones for men are sweet. Or if they made a chocolatey brown with teal (or with orange or pink or light blue....)...oh yes.

    Yes, I would recommend this!

    Good yet not

    2016/09/22 | Louisiana |

    I purchased this version of Brooks running shoes after having success with two other pairs. They felt great in the store, and I couldn't wait to run in them. I was able to run about 12 miles the first week; then, they started rubbing my left arch and toes. I spent months running in them with bandages on my foot, trying to solve the issue. Now that they are almost worn out, they stopped hurting my foot. I started rotating them with another pair of running shoes, and it seems to help. However, for the price, I would have preferred better shoes. I bought some Asics for about a third of the price, and they seem to be working well. Another reviewer mentioned the tongue cutting into their ankle, and I also had this issue.

    Brooks fan - but not impressed

    2016/06/13 | Brooklyn ,NY |

    I love Brooks running shoes and own 5 pairs of PureFlows. However, these shoes cut my feet like no other. The tongue is plastic and stiff. So disappointed.

    Love, love these shoes

    2016/04/30 | Hebron Indiana |

    First time trying these shoes. I am so happy I did. Extremely comfortable during my short and long runs. The only con is the tongue seems to be too long and it rubs my ankle. I did get blisters for the first couple of wears but adjusted to them since. I would definitely buy these shoes again. I actually want to purchase the pink ones next!

    Yes, I would recommend this!
