Loving the long miles in these

Dear Brooks, you've got an amazing shoe here, please don't go and change it up too much. It works very well just the way it is! I'm 5'11 170 lbs an ultra-runner and very knowledgeable when it comes to shoes. A bit obsessive even. This shoe has such a wonderful balance of cushion and responsiveness. A plush landing with a nice toe off. I love the cushion to weight ratio, (this trail shoe is a…

Dear Brooks, you've got an amazing shoe here, please don't go and change it up too much. It works very well just the way it is! I'm 5'11 170 lbs an ultra-runner and very knowledgeable when it comes to shoes. A bit obsessive even. This shoe has such a wonderful balance of cushion and responsiveness. A plush landing with a nice toe off. I love the cushion to weight ratio, (this trail shoe is a good bit lighter than most of my road shoes.) I'm in love with DNA cushioning. IMO it's hands down the best. This shoe fits my foot like a glove. I bought my regular size 12, it fits perfect. I do prefer to wear thin socks with these as the toe box isn't super wide, but I also consider my forefoot to be a little wider than most and it's fine for me. The heel fit is so spot on! Midfoot fit, arch height and lockdown are also spot on. The lugs are deep enough to get the job done in most situations while keeping the shoe very light. I'm more of a function over fashion guy, so the one color option is fine for me. Tongue is comfortable, could maybe add a little more cushion in there for bombing down hills. Very durable, especially in this weight category. The lace garage is very useful. The only suggestions I have would be that the upper could use a "little" better breathability, possibly a little bigger drainage ports. Maybe open up the width on the toe box just a smidge, (on the big toe side only.) I dislike when shoes taper in on the inside, it often results in my "straight" big toe being uncomfortably forced inward toward the center of the foot, rather than being able to remain straight. Think footshape. Also, it is a little "tippy". I roll outward a little more often than i do in other trail shoes. Is it because the bottom is slightly tapered from side to side? Would changing this design take away from the superb cushioned landing...maybe. If so, then please just leave it as is because this shoe is pretty darn incredible Read More

Fantastic

It shows Brooks do a lot of design development and innovate many times with their shoes. The lace strap down elasticated band is a simple but wonderful design feature. Best Road to Trail shoe on the market.

Perfect road to trail hybrid

I purchased these primarily as a road shoe for for regular 5-9K runs, under the premise that I may start doing park runs in the near future. I cannot testify yet to their trail capabilities - but the shoes are incredibly comfortable, light and with great cushioning in the mid sole. Unlike my Speedgoats - they have enough room in the toebox! I'll probably buy another pair for my first half…

I love these shoes!

These shoes provide me with great support on my daily walks/lite hiking. They also add a splash of color to my otherwise drab outfits that make them fun to wear.
