I'm marathoner. During my training marathon season I have two pairs of shoes to train. I wear for long runs PureCadence and the PureConnect for speed workout. I was reading that this specific pair of running shoes is not recommended for training just for running a race. It means those shoes will be just for running races - specifically Marathons ? Why? I would love to try them. I do have two marathons on scheduled this year. MCM in October 2017 and NYY 2017. It would be interesting to see if these pair helps on my back to back running.

What kind of mileage can I expect from Hyperion? As a racing flat, I understand it will take far less mileage than a training shoe, but I use only use them for speed work, and races.

The life expectancy for our racing flats is 250-300 miles, or 4-6 months when used for their intended purpose.

Although I know these are meant for racing...would you suggest them for HIIT style workouts?

We don't recommend it, however, you can use our shoes for HIIT workouts, but keep in mind Brooks shoes are not intended for lateral movements. Lateral movements will lead to quicker wear and tear of the shoe. Read More

You can train in the shoe it is just not recommended. The shoe is super light weight and is meant for speed and will deteriorate quicker if used for training. You can break in the shoe a couple times and it will be ready to go after that. Read More

I just finished my 4 years of college running and I'm training for a half marathon. I typically needed a heavier racing shoe than was recommended (e.g. for the track 10k I used a lightweight xc spike..the mach 16). So I was wondering if these would be heavy enough for my half?

The women's Hyperion weighs 5.4 oz and the men's weighs 6.4 oz. It is a personal preference if you think this will be heavy enough for you or not. Another option to look into may be the Launch. Read More
