Brooks Men’s Adrenaline GTS 20
I haven’t liked the Brooks adrenaline series since the 2014’s, but they got it right with these 20’s. If your feet tend to over pronate, and you have trouble with plantar fascia these shoes are perfect.
I have been wearing Asics GT-2000 series shoes for over 5 years, and decided to try this pair after my wife has been wearing the ghosts for a while. These are very comfortable – the cushion is great on my knees that have endured a total of 3 surgeries.
The stability is not quite like the GT-2000s, but the support is still there for my non-arch.
I actually enjoy wearing them, and the only thing I would change is the lace hole locations by the ankle and the heel lip design – so I could more easily just slip them off/on without tying them 🙂 But thats about it – great, solid, well built shoe here.
Ive been using Nike running shoes for years without knowing if they were the right shoe for me. After having a gait analysis I learned that Im an over-pronator.
Ive known for a while that Brooks shoes are very popular among the running community, so I decided to adventure to try a shoe for my specific needs, and I dont regret the decision.
Best running shoes Ive ever had. I mainly use these shoes for running long distances. I havent had any issues so far. I really like the looks and they are very comfortable.
I have been running in the Adrenaline GTS model since version 6, usually putting about 400 miles on before swapping out for new (2 pairs per year on average on the roads).
I am a not big / not small, about 511″ and 188, and the GTS have been a very reliable sneaker for me over the years. I have put about 50 miles on this pair since buying them, and I think this is the best version yet.
I thought the move to the “guiderails” in version 19 might have been a mistake, but in this version, which seems to be a little more stripped down than prior versions, everything just works well.
I did move down a 1/2 size from prior versions, 12.5 normal width now vs. 13 normal width. You wont mistake this for a racing sneaker, but as a solid daily trainer that you can easily log miles in, it remains a go to sneaker for me.
1st and foremost a, I would advise anyone who is looking at these shoes to go to a running store and get fitted for a Brooks adrenaline. They run about a size larger, and are specialized for specific types of feet and running style.
That being said, I use these to replace my adrenaline 19s which i got about a year ago. Personally, Im a big fan of the guard rails and love the 5th. my 1st time running on them I did 3 miles with no problem, even cutting off 30 seconds per mile.
Brooks has been a reliable brand for me, so Ill be sticking with them for a while. Plus, the price point cant be beat in any store
I use these for what you might call power walking. I am 71 and do 4 miles at dawn on forest roads every day, some of it on hills. I had been using a pair of relatively new New Balance sort of general shoes.
I felt that I needed more support, as it seemed that my feet were “falling” even more than they do with age. There was nothing wrong with the NB shoes, but I just wondered if there were something better.
I remembered that many years ago I had a pair of Brooks when I used to actually run, and they were very durable. I had forgotten all about Brooks. But I looked these up and decided to take a chance.
They are very light. The size is perfect (for me, M12). The arch support is excellent.
What surprised me was this thing they call “GuideRails.” When I saw it in the description, I was like, “Yeah, whatever.” But when you put these shoes on, you can actually feel your ankles being ever so slightly supported in a straight direction.
One other thing that I will mention is that these shoes have a “footprint” (sorry) that looks like your foot. If you look at them from above, they do not have a rounded toe, relatively straight sides, and less rounded heel.
