I have never reviewed a shoe online, but I feel compelled to provide some feedback on the Transcend for those who may be on the fence - as the Transcend is a new model, and it's about $160.

I am a 34 year old male, 5'10" 185lbs. In my late twenties, I was running 5K and 10K road races at about an 8 minute/mile pace. Plantar fasciitis set in and took me out of the game completely. I quit running for a full three years. A chiropractor friend of mine suggested that I modify my natural stride (big time heel striker) and try running on my toes. At about that same time, I received a pair of Adrenaline GTS 14s as a gift. Gradually, I have re-learned to run on my toes, and the Adrenalines were a critical tool in that process. However, as it still feels very unnatural for me to toe strike, I find that with the Adrenalines, I have to consciously focus on every stride in order to get my foot flat on the ground. Also, the Adrenalines did not offer the cushiony ride I found myself wanting.

Enter the Transcends.

These shoes are incredible. I knew within the first tenth of a mile on my first run that they were exactly what I needed. They provide a super soft ride. I find that with the soft DNA forefoot, my feet are less tired after a run. Also, and this is probably my favorite part, it's like the shoes do the thinking for me and place my feet on the ground properly. I still have to remind myself to be a toe striker, but it just feels so much more natural and easy with the Transcends. I could not be any happier with a pair of shoes. I'm still not back to my top form. But I'm now able to run 12 - 15 miles per week (Which, those of you with plantar fasciitis will know, is a beautiful thing!)
If you are like me, and you have finicky or weak arches, or if you just have a heavier stride in general, I would strongly suggest that you try the Transcends. I will definitely buy another pair. And I really hope that Brooks sticks with this model.
One last thing - I read/watched some of the reviews before buying, and saw a runner's magazine that knocked the Trancends as being a bit too heavy. I have not found that to be a problem, or even to be an accurate comment. They don't seem any heavier than the Adrenalines, at least not to me.

The heel to toe drop on this shoe is ideal for me. The cushioning feels very good (I'm a 230 lb runner). Lacing is comfortable, toe box wide enough, weight is fine. My main problem with this shoe is that the material used to trim the upper portion of the shoe near the toes is very firm/hard. Where my foot bends, right near the toes, the firm material bends inward and pushes into my foot and is very uncomfortable after about 3 miles. I want to return these shoes, but not sure the store will take them back. They may just end up being a short distance shoe, but I had high hopes they would become my distance trainer.

Comments about Transcend:

Got these for my long runs leading up to the Phoenix marathon in 4 months. The Transcend has been a fantastic shoe for me, I'm 6'4' and 230 pounds. They fit like a glove and provide a comfortable smooth ride. And I think the black pair I am wearing are great looking kicks!!!

    Comments about Transcend:

    I run cross country and track at my school and I was on my fourth pair of Adrenalines when my feet started hurting and I started getting small injuries. I switched to the Transcends and Loved them! They are so comfortable! Feel about as heavy as the adrenalines and I haven't had any issues with them so far over the three months I've had them.

      Comments about Transcend:

      I was a loyal Trance consumer. Loved the shoe and was sorry to see it phased out. Ran pain free for 5 years. The Transcend is a good shoe design-wise. However it isn't as stable as the Trance, and perhaps more importantly, the sole especially at the front of the shoe has worn out very quickly.

      Comments about Transcend:

      I'm an avid runner, averaging 25-30 miles a week during off season. The shoe is comfortable and light. I have low arches but this shoes has enough support to help me. The wear on the shoe is bad. I had the shoes for about 2 months when I started to notice tearing and rips on the top of the shoe. I mainly run on paved roads. For being such an expensive shoe you figured it would have better durability. The shoe definitely needs improvements.

      Comments about Transcend:

      Run 4 miles a day.. I am 6'4 210 pounds with a high arch... The shoes are comfortable. I will say order a ½ size bigger. They run small. I would also like to see better orthopedics... I spent another $60 for new inserts... That makes this shoe little expensive.. I usually burn out a shoe in about 4 months...
