      Comments about Defyance 7:

      I am a distance runner, running between 5 and 16 miles a day. I need a light weight shoe that holds up to road and trail runs. I have found Brooks to be a great shoe for what I do and the conditions I run in. I have been through 3 pair of shoes in the past 9 months, about the time the arch support begins to break down in the shoe and my feet feel it. Still, it's the best shoe I have found for my running so far...

      Great Shoe after Break-in Period

        Comments about Defyance 7:

        This shoe was great after the break-in period. During the break-in period, my ankles were sore and I had to limit myself to walking rather than jogging. The break-in period lasted about 2 days or around 6-7 miles.

          I have been needing a good pair of running/walking shoes on a daily basis. A friend told me about Brooks. I gave it a shot, and it was a great decision. The shoes are great for both running and walking. The pronation control helps with feet, shin, and knee fatigue. I tell people it's like walking on pillows all day. Really great shoe and lightweight which I love. Highly recommended.

          I got my first pair of Brooks roughly 3 months ago and used and still use them mostly for exercise on the elliptical cross trainer and walking indoors. The wear they show is more than I would have expected for the use they have seen. They look great and are very comfy, but the wear is a concern. I used a different brand before and it looks like I'll be going back to that brand, which is far more durable.

            I normally run 20-30 miles/week and have to have a quality running shoe as almost all of my running is on pavement unless it is on a treadmill. These shoes after just one week have brought a lot of enjoyment back to running with the reduced impact on my old bones! I very highly recommend them and am hoping this pair lasts me through the Marine Corps Historic Half this year!
