Customer Reviews

Comments: These are my first ever pair of Brooks shoes. Been running for over 20 years and these shoes are great. My knee pain has gone away almost completely. Wearing very well. Can get back to marathon training with these shoes.
From: Mark, Seminole, FL, U.S.A.

Comments: I found the Brooks to be true to size (half size up for street running recommended) I am six foot 240 lbs with a high arch and wide foot. The adrenaline 10 are amazing and comfortable too. They do not feel clunky as others have mentioned, they are running shoes not marine boots, I know the difference trust me. You won't be disappointed, I have tried all other brands and only Salomon comes close with the durability and fit.
From: John, Wantagh, New York, United States

Comments: Comfortable shoe except for the tread, the "tracktor tread" design picks up way too many rocks - even when you stick to the sidewalks or roads.
From: Doug, Vancouver, BC, Canada

Comments: I have been a fan of Brooks for many years but they missed the mark on this one, feels stiff, heavy and clunky. The ghost 5 is a better choice for less money. this is not an improvement on the glycerine 9 in my opinion. 
From: Greg, Glendale, AZ

Comments: Feels like a cushy pair of cinder blocks. Attractive and feel nice on your feet, but not particularly conducive to running fast. Might still be good for heavyset, low mileage runners who heel strike. Everyone else can do better for less money.
From: Nick, Storrs, CT, USA

Comments: Brooks blew it. The new sole over corrects the foot with the rail sole along the outside of the foot strike. Shoe feels soft on impact but stiff through movement. I have been a fan of the Glycerin line for quite a few years, but these shoes at $140.00 a piece are disappointing.  I would recommend taking a test ride in them at a local shop before forking over the money for a pair.
From: John, Saginaw MI USA

Comments: Nice smooth ride with a slightly roomier fit.  Chocolate for the feet!
From: Winston, Vancouver, bc. Canada
