Customer Reviews

Comments: Switched to these from the Adrenaline 11. Really like the cushioned but structured feel-not too soft but more cushion than Adrenaline. Shoes are a little heavier than Adrenalines, but not noticeable while running.  Will probably get another pair soon. I am a flat footed medium over-pronator and run about 25-30 miles/wk.

Comments: OK. The reviews say the Trance 11 is the Cadillac of running shoes. I got exactly what I expected ... and some. The Trance is a great-looking shoe and I think it is the BMW of running shoes. Walking in the Trance is like walking on a cloud. I hated to spend $140 on one pair of shoes but they are worth every dime. If your budget isn't in the $140 range do like I did: scour the internet for the Trance 10 which is on close-out for about $70. Half the price of the Trance 11 but just as good. I alternate between the Trance 10, Trance 11 and Glycerine. My feet deserve the best and now they have it.
