August 8, 2023|By Brooks Staff
If you're looking for cushioned running shoes, check our most supportive option.
A little background before you hit the ground
At Brooks, all our running shoes prioritize comfort, but our GuideRails® technology in the Adrenaline GTS adds support by keeping excess movement in check.
Our most popular supportive running shoes reduces excess shin and heel rotation to keep your natural knee motion in a safe range so you can run with more comfort and less pain. GuideRails® technology allows your body to embrace its natural motion path while limiting excess motion.
Plus, the Adrenaline GTS features a midsole with 100% DNA LOFT cushioning for a softer, smoother ride so you can focus on what matters most — the run.

If running on clouds is your jam, check out the fit, support, and ride you want, below.
Ghost – Loved by runners for its smooth ride, the Ghost is all about balance. Our first carbon neutral shoe has just enough give to cushion each step, while staying responsive for a quick toe-off. And the upper hits the sweet spot between roomy and secure.
Glycerin – The Glycerin is what you’d get if you cranked the cushioning on the Ghost and added a plush liner for a softer, snugger fit. Consider this the Mama Bear of running shoes — if “too soft” isn’t in your vocabulary, the Glycerin will feel just right.
Thinking about a different category?
Check out two other popular styles from our Energize and Speed categories.
Levitate — You get what you give in the Levitate — its DNA AMP midsole technology delivers high energy return that helps your foot spring off the ground. A new engineered circular-knit Fit Knit upper provides breathability and ensures a more flexible, accommodating fit.
Launch — Have a case of the zoomies? Try these shoes made for lightweight speed. With new, lighter cushioning, the Launch 8 offers a fast, fun ride without sacrificing softness or durability. Its dynamic BioMoGo DNA midsole provides the cushioning you need without weighing you down.
