Customer Reviews

Comments: A very comfortable, durable and supportive shoe. I love all the cushion this shoe has. Yet it still is light weight. I dealt with chronic plantar fasciosis for year. Had surgery and rehab after many ironmans and marathons. I couldnt run for years. Nothing made my feet comfortable enough to start running again without pain. I put my orthotics in this shoes and love it. I want another pair just to run erans in. Brooks has a great shoe. I use to only run in a mizuno. Now I am definitely a fan of Brooks. The color is also so fun to:)

Comments: This shoe is truly in a class of its own. It is extremely durable with long-lasting and superb support and cushion, allowing me to run uphill every single day without any pain *at all* which is a miracle for me. I have struggled for years with painful, running-induced shin splints, knee problems and plantar fasciitis. As a result, I have usually only been able to run regularly for a few weeks or months at a time, while frequently experiencing pain, before having to give up running altogether for months or even years due to various injuries. After debilitating injuries, a sports therapist I saw years ago told me I was never going to run again. I was utterly crushed. All of that has disappeared with this one magic shoe. I so wish I had always run in this shoe, because now it has made running completely blissful, sustainable, and healthy for my body- running now is all pros and no cons. I urge Brooks to always always always sell this shoe and never change a thing about it!!!
