I'm a long time runner who has worn a LOT of different shoes. I'm in my 37th year of 5-6 days a week running, am 5'11" and 200 pounds. For shoes, I look to support and comfort. I can remember back to Brooks Chariots and have tried most major brands. Most recently, I've had a series of Asics Kayanos but developed a problem with the uppers coming too high under my ankle and causing severe bruising. Since I shop RRS almost always, I usually am a model behind. Buy Kayano 14 and 15 comes out. Buy 15 when 16 comes out. I could not get the problem to go away, even with moleskin under my ankle. Over the phone, I agreed to try Nike Equilon+5 but they did not fit well. Finally, it was time to bite the bullet and drive to the Costa Mesa RRS store so I could try on various brands. This included NB 1226, Mizuno, Saucony ProGrid and Brooks Trance. The result was Brooks Trance 10. I had some of these shoes about 9 years ago and wasn't too impressed. What a difference now! I found the arch support and the cushion that I needed. In addition, I found that the cut under than ankles was a lower profile and did not irritate the ankle. I've only had 2 runs so far, but they are great. The fit, the cushion and the overall comfort are right for me now. [...] I'll put 200 miles or so on them and then write again. Initial indications are very positive.
I've had plantar fasciitis issues for over 20 years. Within two weeks of changing to this shoe the pain has gone away. I use these for my treadmill/cardio workouts and they are PERFECT. Recommended by the staff of Road Runner Sports and they were spot on regarding this shoe.

Just not for me, apparently...
I felt fortunate to find a pair of these in my size on clearance. While in the past, I have needed to go a size up on width or length with Brooks, these felt perfect. Nice and snug in the heel and arch with just enough room in the toe box. Unfortunately, my first run with them was only 4 miles on the treadmill, and my calves and shins haven't hurt so much in a long time. I took a day off and tried 6 miles on my next run... Again, pain all the way from my lower ankles into my knees. I am a moderate pronater and have done very well with Nike stability shoes like the Lunar Elite and especially the Structure. I was really disappointed but had to return the Trance 10's. I didn't want to rate any lower than 4 stars, as it appears the shoes are great for the right people... Unfortunately, they just weren't for me.
Simply the BEST.
I have owned numerous stability plus shoes. I have owned the Trance 6, the NB 1222,23,24 the Saucony Pro Grid Hurricane 10,11,12, and I will say wothout a doubt nor with fear of exaggeration. These shoes are the absolute BEST I have ever owned. I am an RN and I am on my feet 12 hours a night.
In those 12 hours I put in anywhere from 4 to 9 miles on my feet.
On all of the aforementioned shoes my feet would at some point in the night get uncomfortable and when I took them off in the AM. My feet plain out ached. The same can not be said for the Trance 10. They are comfortable from the time I lace them up until the time I take them off in the AM.
These shoes have made it easier for me to to my job, getting to a patient's room faster, or getting to a code situation faster and with NO discomfort at all.
You want plush and supportive? Look no further.

Great for helping with Plantar F
I am a long distance runner, putting down 40-60 miles per week. Developed and really aggravated a Plantar by over training while injured. searched for a shoe to aid in my healing of Plantar Fasciitis so that I could continue to train while healing.
Finding the Trance 10 was the best thing for me. It has great comfort and stability. It flexes at the right points in the forward sole and has got the right amount of cushioning. Now, I have changed my style of running and have left heel striking behind. This has also had an impact on my healing.
The new DNA technology has made this a shoe a real winner. I will stick with the Trance 10 for many years.

I reviewed the Brooks Trance 10 in January shortly after I bought the shoe - actually 2 pairs. I've run consistently in them till now and they are still doing well. I am about to buy another pair to circulate into the ones I have to make sure my 65 year old knees don't take a beating. I like them as much now as I did when I first bought them. They are also great when you have to be on your feet. I'm a high school choir director and being in front of the choir for long periods requires cushion. These shoes have been great for this purpose also.
I like this shoe better than the Trance 9. I ran a 10 miler and they felt great.
Beast to Trance 10
After running 12 marathons and twice as many half marathons in "THE BEAST", I was pleasantly surprised by the fit, cushioning, and support from the Brooks Trance 10. The weight difference alone has made my running more enjoyable. A lot of shoe with less weight. I am already trudging around 220lbs....every little bit helps...even if it is a few ounces. Glad Brooks has made the improvements.

"Brooks are the real deal"
I picked a pair of these Brooks up at the San Diego RR. I enjoy driving up to the Mira Mesa location because the staff are courteous and attentive. The shoes are one of the best pair I have owned. One of the features that I look for in a running shoe is breathability. When I run I love to feel a little wind on my toes :)
Good shoe but not for high arches
I liked everything about this shoe except for the fact that it did not provide the arch support that I needed when running. I have high arches with some pronation, so just not the right shoe for me. Would be great for those with lower arches needing decent stability.
