The Adrenaline is getting hard to find and this was the only shoe I could order and not need to try on. It was perfect right out of the box. My feet are so poorly structured, I should not be running at all. These make it possible.
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.
Everything about this shoe is a Cadillac... I mean you want a smooth cushiony ride, this is it. If you are on the fence about it, don't. I got another pair of Brooks at the same time and compared the two. Yes this one is more expensive but at least you are getting that extra bit of comfort that my feet really want so badly. You won't regret this one. Trust me. I have problem feet and need to try to get back into shape but it's hard if you can't even walk 20 minutes without pain. These shoes have me not just walking but the bounce and performance is such that I will be running in them as soon as the spring weather arrives. I'm hooked... from now on it's Brooks for me! My first good pair of running shoes were Brooks and they were the best. Now I remember why. I'm never straying again. Count me in. I don't mind spending a bit more to have a great comfy shoe. Well worth it.
I've never purchased Brook's shoes before. I was a Mizuno wearer until my last pair that were not comfortable like all the precious pairs I'd purchased. I'm so glad I researched and purchased these Brook's. I prorate and they do a very good job supporting my feet in comfort. I wear them for aerobics-mostly low to moderate impact and walk aerobics. They fit true to size. Definitely recommend them.
I bought these per my podiatrist recommendation at a shoe store and he sized me up a half size because my toes were blackening from running. Now the shoes are too bulky and makes me feel clumsy when I run. I ordered another pair, on here, my usual size and they already feel half size up without the bulk or largeness making it difficult to run. Shoe is comfortable and definitely keeps my feet stable.
