    Comments about Womens Brooks Trance 11 Running Shoe:

    I've been a Trance fan for quite some time - The 9 was my fav and when the 10 hit the market I snatched up as many 9's as I could as the Trance 10 failed to meet my expectations. If you loved the 9's fit and the 10's cushion, this is the shoe for you. It fits like a glove (similar to the Trance 9 or Ravenna 2) and has awesome cushion! Great update!

    Comments about Womens Brooks Trance 11 Running Shoe:

    I've worn the Trance for a few seasons now. I have the 9 and the 10 and I loved the 10, but hated the look and color options. I was excited about this shoe and since I'm a Trance user felt comfortable going out for a 10 miler on my first run with them. I immediately noticed when I put them on that the tongue sticks up higher than before and is a different shape. Because of this, it hit the front of my ankle. I wear low socks so by the 5th mile the tongue had rubbed the front of my ankle raw. Thankfully this wasn't a super long run and I was fine, but man was I annoyed by this seemingly pointless design change!!!! I'm not sure how I'm going to solve the issue moving forward either.

      Comments about Womens Brooks Trance 11 Running Shoe:

      I always thought i was a neutral runner, but with a case of plantar fascitits due to supination i decided to go with a stability shoe. I have orthotics which fit great in the shoe, the shoe felt awesome the first time wearing them and, my heell pain is beginning to subside. These aren't heavy, bulky stability shoes, they feel reactive and responsive.

          I run three times a week and I buy new shoes every 4 months..I have had no shin splints or any feet problems. The shoe fits great with insoles I use for my pronation problems. Bad news is that the Trance 11 has been replaced bye Trance 12. I have two pairs of 11 in boxes as I don't want to move on from this shoe

            I've been a Trance girl for over 5 years, and Brooks' biggest fan. But this model has changed my dedication to Brooks. The #11 model is stiff in the ball of the foot, and I'm still not sure whether I'll keep them. They really messed up this model

              The Trance 11 was not for me. I run an average of 20 miles per week. Although the Trance is durable and well made, it was too stiff and heavy for me. My previous running shoe was the Ravenna 3, which I absolutely loved! I returned the Trance 11 and purchased the new Ravenna 4, which I like almost as much as my Ravenna 3's.

                  Had worn Brooks Ariels. Heavy shoe.
                  Was introduced to the Trance 10, and fell in love with the ride. Needed a new pair, so purchased the Trance 11. Ended up with fore foot problems. Toe box was much tighter, toes rubbed, so started turning my foot when I ran. Finally realized, was able to find the Trance 10 (purchased 2 pairs) and everything is back to normal.
                  Spoke to Brooks rep as well.

                        Let me preface this by saying that I was in love with the Trance 10, which fit like a glove. So, it was a no-brainer to order the Trance 11 when my 10s began to show some wear. However, I was so disappointed in the 11s that I'm returning them. The shoe itself feels okay (not great) on shorter runs, but the first time I took them out on a long run (17 miles), I got horrible blistering on the tips of two of my toes on my right foot. My toenails were cut nice and short (I learned my lesson about toenail length the hard way several months ago) so that was a non-issue, and my toes end a full thumb-length before the end of the shoe. I read somewhere that the toebox on the 11s was reengineered from the 10s, and my feet definitely did not like the change!

                            Have worn Brooks for years, mostly Glycerin. Switched to Trance about a year ago when I started having ankle issues. Loved the Trance 10, so assumed I would love the 11 as much. Unfortunately, this wasn't the case. I wore the shoes for about 6 weeks (20 - 25 miles per week)and they were the most uncomfortable shoes I've ever had. Feet hurt, heels hurt, achilles hurt, everything. Definitely the shoe, because when I'd go back to my old 10's, no problems. Good news was that I used the RRS exchange program. Might try the 12s when the time comes.

                            I run 25-30 miles per week. The trance works well for me on all both pavement and trails. But, if I ran on more demanding trails, I would probably get a different shoe. They don't seem to last as long as some other brands I've had in the past. These shoes are good if you underpronate. They sort of control my feet, but not to the extent that my feet feel constricted. The arch support is good if you have a normal arch, or maybe even a bit flat-footed. I strike on my midfoot and I find that the cushioning in that area is good.

                            I used to use a different brand of shoe and I had shin splints all the time. On a lark I decided to try the trance. I kid you not, my shin splints started going away after I began running in these shoes and were completely gone within 3 weeks. I decided to try my old brand and my shin splints came right back and I returned the shoes. I had no idea that the wrong shoe could cause so much havoc.

                            Overall, I think these are excellent shoes and I'll continue to buy them.
