It wouldn’t be the Go-To-Shoe without you

This year, when the Adrenaline GTS turned 20, we held a contest that asked our running community to share what this shoe has meant to them over all these years. We also asked what we can do to keep runners running happy for another 20 years—because we don’t plan on slowing down. We collected thousands of stories that gave us exactly the inspiration we need to make sure the Go-To-Shoe only keeps getting better. Below are just a few examples of the many inspiring stories we heard.

Here’s what they said:

Another Decade You and Me?

"Thanks Brooks Adrenaline for being my first Marathon shoes, proposal shoes, and support through all the ups and downs. Mostly ups. Cheers to 20 years & another 20." - Lindsay S.

Support for 16 Years

"I’ve been running in Adrenalines since 2004. A year and a half ago, my spouse & I adopted a beautiful baby girl. I look forward to the day she's big enough to join me for runs." - Michael R.

Summer Running

"What would make me happy to run in the future would be air conditioned shoes. My feet get hot in the summer and some air conditioning would make my feet feel fantastic!" - Nadine L.

What Keeps Me Running Happy

"My reason to keep running is for the kids I coach. I want to encourage them that there is no finish line when it comes to running & to instill a lifelong love of running in them." - Rafael P.

Outrunning Cancer Takes Adrenaline

"I lost 2 brothers & my father to cancer. I told myself I would outrun cancer. I bought a pair of Adrenaline GTS. I run in them everyday, with a current streak of 300 days tomorrow!" - Charles J.

Looking Forward to the Next 20

"I’ve been wearing Adrenalines for 15+ years now. Adrenalines hug my feet and support my arches like you molded them specifically for me. I’m looking forward to the next 20 years." - Andy G.

Big Shoes To Fill

"My mom began running at 35 & qualified for Boston a year later. I would sneak into her closet to borrow her GTS. 20 years from now I'll still be in my GTS, passing down the legacy." - Kennedy P.

Happy Feet

"I had stress fractures & the dreaded plantar fasciitis, and Adrenaline GTS literally “saved” my feet!" - Ginger B.

Running in 2040?

"By helping me analyze trends across my training, my Adrenalines have propelled me to the finish line time & time again. I receive an alert when my cadence drops. My soles raise when my arches start to collapse. And an end-of-run report tells me what stretches to do." - bucketlistbih

My Brooks Have Been Through A Lot

"Being a runner felt impossible. Until I decided, on a whim, to run my first 5k. My Brooks are an integral part of my running journey—with me through countless races. My go-to shoe." - Jennifer G.

Running on Fumes

"As a US Navy veteran running has taken me across all parts of life. My story is of perseverance, bravery & courage—these shoes are but a tiny piece of my body. In them, I found me." - Kelly A.

Why I Run Happy!

"I founded STRIVERS Running Club to help girls build self-esteem through running. As a runner for 30+ years, I wanted to help girls set goals, challenge themselves & grow." - Colleen P.

Body : When we designed the Adrenaline GTS, we looked at the whole body, not just the feet, and created GuideRails®—a smarter support system. Now, after years of iteration the Adrenaline GTS 20 offers support, while also delivering a fresh new style and softness that’s just right.

“We want to make sure every part of the shoe directly serves the runner, so we look for ways to make it modern while still giving them the Adrenaline ride they’ve loved for 20 years.”
