Comments about Womens Brooks Defyance Running Shoe:

wow. i loved these shoes. i've had knee problems for the past ,10 years. i wore nikes pretty much the whole time. and then i got these, and it really was like the pain went away overnight. i didn't have to ice after every run anymore. running was the way it was supposed to be: fun, without pain. of course, then it came time to get a new pair, and the 2nd generation of this shoe just isn't the same.

Comments about Womens Brooks Defyance Running Shoe:

I bought these to replace my Radius. They are okay but I don't like them nearly as much as the Radius. Good fit but not nearly as cushy as the Radius. I think people who prefer stability over cushion will love these.

Comments about Womens Brooks Defyance Running Shoe:

I LOVE this shoe. I'm small, about 5'2 and 100 lbs and run long distances and run marathons at a good pace, and these have been the perfect shoe for me. I've always been sold on Brooks, and I wore the Brooks Dyad 5 for awhile (in my last marathon even) and even though I liked those, they were a bit heavy for me, especially compared to these shoes. Everything about these are great, the weight, toe box, stability, and overall feel. Yeah, they're that good.

Comments about Womens Brooks Defyance Running Shoe:

I've bought and returned about 8 pairs of running shoes looking for a good fit and I finally found a shoe that works for me! I have a small frame, about 112 lbs, and high arches. This shoe didn't feel very cushiony at first but I could definitely feel the cushion and support after a 3 mile run. A big thanks to the sales guy at RoadRunner who picked out this shoe for me.

Comments about Womens Brooks Defyance Running Shoe:

I have these shoes in a wide width and they are great for my wide, high-arch, high-instep, underpronating feet. I also have a bunion on one foot. I was wearing Nike Vomeros, which were okay, except that they gave me blisters and one blood-blistered toe. I also had to wear gel arch inserts with the Vomero's (and every other shoe I'vew worn) but do not with the Defyance! They don't feel like they have great arch support when you first put them on, but my feet feel great in them, even after 10 miles. These are my first Brooks shoes and I just ordered a second pair. I love these shoes.

Comments about Womens Brooks Defyance Running Shoe:

These are light weight and purely amazing. I bought a pair of Asics GT-2130 and ended up returning them because of the weight. These shoes are great for 5k+ running. It's well worth the $90.

Comments about Womens Brooks Defyance Running Shoe:

These are the first Brooks I have been able to wear. I have tried multiple other types but this one is not as wide and the arch support is better too. I love them - they are light, require no break in time, cushioned but still allow you to feel the road.

These shoes are fantastic! I bought them to replace a pair of Brooks Radius. These are lighter and more supporter -- with the same fantastic wide toebox. Very comfortable shoe for a runner with painful bunions.
