The Trance 10 is a maximum feature, maximum support shoe designed for daily training and high mileage. it is built with a semi-curved shape.


  • Full-length DNA is a high energy return cushioning device consisting of highly viscous liquid that performs like millions of "nanosprings". Full-length DNA is designed to tailor the level of cushioning to each individual's weight, pace, biomechanics, and running environment.


  • BioMoGo is Brook's premium midsole material. BioMoGo is designed to offer resilient cushioning and extends the full length of the midsole. BioMoGo is also environmentally friendly, as it will biodegrade 50 times faster in a landfill compared to traditional foam midsoles.
  • Progressive Diagonal Rollbar (PDRB) begins at the medial heel and extends through to the medial forefoot. PDRB is a tri-density BioMoGo construction which is desgned to smoothly reduce excess pronation.
  • DRB Accel is located at the bottom of the midsole in the midfoot. DRB Accel is an injected thermoplastic polyurethane unit which is intended to balance support and torsional rigidity with responsiveness for smooth and fast heel-to-toe movement.
  • Stable Pod Configuration is a midsole/outsole design pattern intended to set the foot up for an efficient, balanced position from heel to toe. The focus of this design is on stability and responsiveness.
  • Element Mesh is a moisture-managing, breathable mesh that covers large expanses of the upper.
  • Synthetic Overlays are strategically located with the purpose of providing a secure fit.
  • Element Linings lie along the underside of the upper to aid in moisture transfer and comfort.
  • Profile Sockliner sits underfoot and is made of BioMoGo for cushioning and forms a contoured support sensation.
  • Cushole S-257 Last utilizes a full length layer of advanced foam to provide cushioning and flexibility.
  • HPR Plus is a form of high abrasion-resistant rubber and is located in the heel.
  • Blown Rubber is located in the forefoot to provide responsiveness and flexibilty.

Customer Reviews

Comments: I bought these due to the sale price.They are the absolute worse shoe I have ever worn. Feels like I am walking on a board and the laces cut into the top of my foot. I leave them as loose as possible, but still bothers me.The toe box also is uncomfortable and irritates the inside of both feet. I am currently running in Asics Gel Kayano 17 , which I love and have no problem with and will stick with that shoe and will purchase the 18 when needed. I am 6'1" and 165 Lbs. I am glad I did not pay full price and will wear them around the house as I could never run in them and they are sized correctly.

Comments: Great shoes, just ordered my second pair of the identical Trance 10's from RW! I've primarily been running with Asic's however the first pair have been so good over the last three months thought I'd get another for when they wear out. In my Asics Kayano 18 review I said I didn't have much luck with Brooks but decided to give them a try since the price was discounted so much, happy I did. I'm 6' and 200 pounds and run on cement so finding supportive and well cushioned shoes are not easy, especially since I run five mile every day. Give them a try at the great current price of 50% off.
From: Brad, USA

Comments: So far I have 2, 10 miles runs logged with these and I'm fairly
impressed. I'm battling various injuries and need good support under my 61 year old feet. Size 12 fits me nearly identically as my
Brooks Adrenaline GTS 11, size 12.5. I have normal arches and slightly wide feet. In the short term I have found nothing irritating while wearing these. My 5'10", 150 pound frame seems to be be in sync with these shoes.They do seem to be a tad on the heaving side but I'm using them strictly for maintenance miles, (8.20 pace).

  In my opinion these are a good value at the clearance price being offered. Only time will tell in terms of durability, I'm hoping to get 400 training miles out of these. If you have yet to try Brooks this might be a good time take the plunge. They seem to be a good solid pair of shoes. 

I hope this review helps. Good luck.

Comments: Just bought my second pair from Running Warehouse, as the manufacturers phase out the model! In my opinion, this is absolutely the best supportive/cushioning shoe. I was developing various types of pains with other models including achilles tendonities, knee join pain etc. After running with Trance, no issues! Highly recommended, despite the high price! You wont think about the price after you run a couple of miles.

Comments: Just got these and ran today for the first time.  They were like pillows under my feet.  No pain just pure comfort.  I actually was shocked when I came to the end of my run, I didn't realize it, because of the comfort of these shoes.  I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a top of the line running shoe.  These ROCK!!!
