Slippery when wet

Not only do these run a half size too small, they are extremely slippery when wet. I fell down hard on some stone steps while wearing them for the second time. I thought maybe it was a fluke until the third time I went for a run in light rain. I was slipping and sliding everywhere. Buyer beware!

giving D9 a chance

never can wear the same shoe twice with all the changes manufactures make across versions. been running 30 plus years. runners loose, mf profit. WE. I was in a HOKA I LOVED: stinson 3. Gone. tried another HOKA, bad. Bought the D9 and it feels GREAT on my foot. I have a wide foot, so the narrow cut reviews confuse me. I am going to give these a shot. I will write an update after a week of running.…

I have a pair of these from 2015 and love them. The reviews on the site aren't very good. Has this shoe changed since the 2015 model? Thanks.

Hi! Yes, the Defyance has been updated since 2015! Brooks Running

Hi - are you making a Defyance 10? I purchased my Defyance 9 back in May 2016 and thought you would have the 10 out by now. Thank you.

The Defyance 10 will not be released until 2018.

When is the Defyance 10 coming out and will they change it back to resemble the 8? I share the disappointment of numerous other customers and cannot wear the 9. I was forced to switch to another model that I don't like but had no choice. Hoping the old defyance will make a comeback!

Unfortunately, we do not have visibility to the release date of the Defyance 10, as it will not be launched in 2017. Since this model is not expected to release in the upcoming seasons, we do not yet know how the shoe will compare to the Defyance 8 - please stay tuned! Read More

Why is this sneaker so much worse than the Defyance 8? Can you please bring back the Defyance 8?

2017/01/22 VA Rachel in VA

We appreciate your feedback and will pass it along to our Product team!

Why did you change the Defyance? The only shoe I wear is the Defyance, and now I can't wear it. The toe box is so narrow now that it is squeezing my toes together like a pair of pointy shoes. This is not something I can comfortably work out in.
