Have worn Defyance for several years & will likely continue

Half marathon is my max distance, 4-6 miles per run when not preparing for race day. The shoe (Defyance 9) is more snug at my little toe than I would like, but not enough to cause blisters, & definitely not a full half size too small. Bought the Adrenaline GTS when it was on sale. Noticed my Achilles bothered me with that shoe, the worst when walking after a run. When new shoe was needed, I went…

Half marathon is my max distance, 4-6 miles per run when not preparing for race day. The shoe (Defyance 9) is more snug at my little toe than I would like, but not enough to cause blisters, & definitely not a full half size too small. Bought the Adrenaline GTS when it was on sale. Noticed my Achilles bothered me with that shoe, the worst when walking after a run. When new shoe was needed, I went back to the Defyance and the Achilles problem went away. I suppose this is because the GTS has some support and the Defyance is neutral and I apparently need neutral. I plan to keep buying Defyance in the future, especially when they go on sale. Read More

These shoes are awesome.

These shoes are awesome. I can always tell when my cushion in my shoes go out because my feet start to ache. As soon as I put these on, I could feel the amount of cushion and support immediately.

Ghosts feel better

Still a good shoe-just not as nice as the ghost (on my feet anyway)

not durable but comfortable shoe

I used a adrenaline gts 7 for like 9 years (haha, i know...) ok was too lazy to get new ones as they just didnt disintegrate. Now I got these like 5 months ago. I must say I run relatively good in them. They are light and soft. Anyways the main topic is that they just tear apart. Like the pictures one person posted before. I used them also in rough terrain, but no reason that the glue dissolves…

I must say I run relatively good in them. They are light and soft. Anyways the main topic is that they just tear apart. Like the pictures one person posted before. I used them also in rough terrain, but no reason that the glue dissolves like that!!! I hope in the newer models you fixed this. Cause I see this kind of under sole design in all of your new shoes and it would keep me from buying another pair of brooks. Did you address this issues? I must say as the gts 7 was so *** enduring I still have hope in this brand... prove me right please! Read More

Since there will (VERY SADLY) be no Defyance 10, and the Defyance 9 was neutral and absolutely perfect for me, which shoe am I supposed to use now?

2018/01/03 Littleton, CO Lost Time Lord

Hi! You should check out the Ghost 10! It is the replacement for the Defyance! Brooks Running

Will there be a Defyance 10 in 2018 or has the shoe been discontinued? This is the perfect shoe for me - neutral - so I'll be deeply disappointed if Brooks discontinues it as I have no idea what to replace it with... I use the Cascadia GTX for trail running but don't want to have to use it for track and road, too, because of its tread and weight. Thanks.

We will not be releasing a Defyance 10.

order for defyance mens shoe calls for normal width, I take a 9 D width. Is this what I will get if I order under the designation 'NORMAL WIDTH' ??

2017/11/27 Pennsylvania Raymond F

Yes, normal width is the equivalent of D width.

Is a new version of the Defyance shoe planned in the near future?

2017/04/13 Richmond Va The Kev Man

We do not anticipate the release of the Defyance 10 in 2017!

What is the difference between the Defyance 9 and the Adrenaline GTS 16?

Both built on the same platform. The Adrenaline has pronation control to prevent the ankles from rolling inwards and the Defyance…
