I LOVED the adrenaline 17's. I had run in 3 pairs of 17's. So was very unsure if I'd like the new 18's. I run 25-50 miles per week, depending on what I'm training for, I'm also a fairly competitive runner. My first run in the 18's I was pleasantly surprised. Compared to the 17's, the 18's feel much lighter on my feet, and not as bulky. I felt I was able to easily maintain a quick pace for my 5 mile tempo run. They are not as "springy" feeling as I'd like and not as "grippy" feeling on the toe portion of the bottom of the shoe as I'd like. I had loved my last 17's so much that they were so worn out and starting to cause knee and hip pain. This first run in the 18's I felt no pain. I'm looking forward to many more good runs in these shoes. For the 19's, I hope Brooks combines the best qualities of the 17 and 18. Bottom line: if you enjoyed the adrenaline 17, the adrenaline 18 are definitely worth a try.
Like the other reviewers, I have worn Brooks for many years. I was looking forward to the new addition and put 2 runs into this pair. The short distance was great. It was the 15 mile run that the issue was noted. The shoes stored the sweat in the soles which caused a very wet shoe to run in (as if I had stepped in puddles). I do live in Hawaii with the humidity, however, this is the first pair that I have ever had this happen. I hope that this was only related to the specific pair that I received as I still do love Brooks. Sorry Brooks, but I will be returning these shoes with a search for another pair of GTS17.
I have been an avid fan of the Adrenaline runners for years, and I bought a pair of GTS 18 while on holiday in Santa Monica, California on February 28. I am disappointed with the quality as usually a pair Brooks runners will last me six months and I have only had these for less than two months and they've started to come apart at the sides.
I have been loyal to the Adrenaline for many years. The Adrenaline 18 has been disappointing for me. The front of the show pinches my toe to the point that I can not run in them. I had to return them and I am now having a hard time finding a stability shoe that meets my needs. Please redesign this shoe to resemble the previous years designs (15, 16, 17).
I love this shoe. It is perfect for long distance running as it combines cushioning with support. Plenty of toe room. I've been running for over 40 years and have finally found a shoe that works very well for distance. The Transcend is in second place but still a good shoe.
Love the shoes they are so cute and cushion and stability are the best, but had to return them since I'm not use to the heal drop of 12mm it was to much for my back to handle: Shoe are great for the knees and ankles but such a drop is bad for my L5 tear. Went to the Revenna instead which is not as good cushioning as the 18. will recommend..
I use to love these shoes but the 18's lost their comfort. They are a hard shoe especially in the forefoot. They also feel less stable. I need to find 17's again
Too flexible and not as supportive as the Adrenaline 17. Will stock up on 17's until I find something else.
LOVE THIS SHOE! I've been running in both the Transcend 4 and Adrenaline 17 for the past year or so but haven't been completely happy with either as the Transcend 4 was great with its cushion but lacked the support I needed but the Adrenaline 17 had the support but lacked the cushion I needed but the 18's got it JUST RIGHT! I've used them for shorter runs as well as a half marathon and I can say I think I've found my holy grail. I love the material sides and upper as it embraces your foot and is much more comfortable. I'd say the fit is true to size but I did have to go to a wide with the new ones as the toe box is a wee more narrow than in the past, and tho there are several color options I do miss the "fun" designs of other models. Overall I love this shoe and will buy many more pair.
This is a step down from the GTS 17 as far as stability. The new material on the uppers is way too stretchy and fails to give the needed support. I wear custom orthotics and my feet are sliding around a lot inside the shoe. What a shame. Will have to stock up on the GTS 17 until I find something else.
Sorry Brooks - I am a long-standing customer of your Adrenalines (have bought every new release for over 7 years) - but I am VERY disappointed in the new 2018's. These sneakers have always served me well for stability and cushioning in cardio classes where feet take a beating, but this year, I'm having all sorts of foot problems with the new design. The carriage around the entire bottom is significantly less than before, your awesome plastic toe guard on the 2017's is gone and the fabric is thinner which means my toe will pop a hole in a matter of months, and I have pain in the ball-of-the-foot area that I have never had before. Overall, you made it cute and more "modern" but it is weak and deficient in all the reasons why I buy Brooks and why I spend the $ for support and stability. I bought two pairs and may actually return them!
These Brooks are the best shoes. I would never walk or run in anything other than Brooks!
