To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I've recently started working out which has been awesome but my knees were really starting to ache. I realized I needed to purchase new shoes with better support instead of my typical Van's. I bought a cheap pair of running shoes for $25 on Amazon which provided no relief. A post came up in my workout group asking about shoe recommendations and somebody suggested the Brooks Adrenaline shoe, and after doing more research I decided to try them out. Wow! The day these arrived on my porch, my knees were aching while just standing and cooking dinner. I put these on right away and I am not kidding when I say that I felt relief almost instantly. I seriously thought it would've taken a day or two. I am someone who has never owned a proper running shoe in my life. I've never liked the look of them. After feeling how supportive and comfortable these shoes are, I couldn't care less what they look like! (Although, the black shoe with the purple accents really isn't so bad!) I'm going to resume working out tomorrow, I will update again about whether or not it truly helps my knees.
