About this deal

Some testers felt the GTS 20 was slightly less cushioned, but this could be down to it being lighter than the GTS 19. Today I run 10k and felt strikes from my left foot mid-sole to my knee, I am thinking maybe the shoe is the source of the problem. When I was putting in the long miles, it definitely made a difference that I could feel in my knees and calf/Achilles, and shorter recovery of problem areas. I took the Adrenaline GTS 20 out for many different runs, but most were longer road runs in my lead up to the marathon. We didn't have that experience at all, but it's certainly something floating around out there, so it's possible that you might have the sort of foot that won't catch in the cup.

It wins our Top Pick for Comfort with its improved flexibility and upper fit joined by the baseline padding and stable snugness. I took my Brooks on a few different runs—8 mile easy run, 12 miles with 3 miles at tempo pace in the middle, and an 18-miler long run at aerobic pace.Those of us with overpronation (about 30% of runners) that has caused some nagging injuries or poor stride results will probably enjoy this fresh/minimalist approach to motion control. It keeps a secure and comfortable locked-down heel that produced no knee pain or shin splints for me, even on long road runs. Sure, this takes away from the responsiveness (read: rigidity) of the sole, but you spend a lot less time and morale fighting with the shoe to get into a good flow. Both Saucony Hurricane 22 and Brooks Transcend 6 are great options (both of my reviews are on this site), which I find to be closer to the Sequence 9 (great shoe!

The outsole has thinned considerably from Transcend 6, starting with a scaled-down Transcend 7 into a thin layer of carbon rubber in the Glycerin GTS models. The following size chart is a guide to Brooks clothing and footwear sizes with a comparison to European and US sizes. Though the Beast and Addiction still have a traditional medial wedge, three of Brooks’s popular staples have switched to the GuideRail form factor.This unique approach to counter excess motion and alleviate pressure on knees and hips works together with the upper’s heel counter to rein in movement. The tongue's padding is thick, but more of a light foam to dampen the road noise bumping through the top of the foot and ankle. I´m a little heavy and on my 47 years old so all i like is a slow long run enjoying myself and not getting injured by soft or minimalistic racing shoes.

Since the GTS 20 is, for all practical purposes, a neutral shoe, you can tap into something like the Nike Vaporfly (4% and Next %), Hoka Clifton 6 or the new Balance 1080V10.

If for any reason you are not satisfied with your purchase we will be happy to refund or exchange it for you. The cost pays off in the long run, with a durable build and midsole that make it a solid investment whether new to running or experienced. Hearst UK is the trading name of the National Magazine Company Ltd, 30 Panton Street, Leicester Square, London, SW1Y 4AJ. This upper is also similar to that in adidas Ultraboost shoes for a comfortable fit (and a much more low-key look). This did not influence the outcome of this review, written after running more than 50 miles in them.

The word “holistic” derives from the Greek holos meaning “whole”; the metaphorical usage means a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts—which is the perfect description for Adrenaline 20 (explained below). Once you've slipped your foot in and get to feeling around a little, you'll probably notice the 3D print saddle that helps the shoe wrap around your foot and gently center on your heel and the arch of your foot to reduce excess movement. When you're out on the road, you'll definitely catch a breeze in through the top of the toes, but that real estate is limited.

A neutral shoe makes up roughly 80% of available running shoes and have the same level of cushioning in the heel and the forefoot making it suitable for a large section of runners.
