Comments about Womens Brooks Defyance 2 Running Shoe:

I switched to this shoe when Brooks stopped making the Radius. Although the shoe is good, it is not as good as the Radius. I find the shoe wears out much faster and it is not as cushioned in the heel as I would prefer. I wear a normal width but it is slightly tighter than I prefer.

Ever since suffering a stress fracture this is the only shoe that works for me, no pain and I feel like I can run forever. The only problem is durability, 4 months and they are shot.

I love these shoes, but was a little surprised that they need to be replaced so soon though. My current pair lasted me just over 4 months. Lovely and comfy so will definatley get another pair.

Comments about Womens Brooks Defyance 2 Running Shoe:

i loved the first defyance. they got rid of my knee problems--which i've had for ,10 years. so i was pretty excited to get my next pair, but these just weren't the same. they feel clunkier. i thought maybe they were bigger (they felt bigger), but side-by-side comparison with the 1st generation shows them to be the same length, at least on the outside. but inside, i mean, they kind of felt like clown shoes to me. and when i run, i feel like my foot slaps down. whereas with the first generation, it was a very smooth landing-rolling-transition.
i'm sure these would have been fine shoes, but i want GREAT shoes for this much money! (and now that i know that shoes can, in fact, make my knee problems disappear). i returned them. hopefully a different brand will solve my problems.

Comments about Womens Brooks Defyance 2 Running Shoe:

Like many others, I prefer the 1st generation Defyance. The Defyance 2 looks clunkier and feels heavier. I returned the Defyance 2 and purchased the Ghost. I've been very pleased with the Ghost.

Comments about Womens Brooks Defyance 2 Running Shoe:

Although it is recommended that you get rid of your shoes after 350-500 miles, I had to retire this shoe after only 250 miles - the outsole on the heel actually began to peel off, and was literally flapping off of the shoe. I don't know if this has to do with the "go green" material Brooks is now using in its shoes, but I am not impressed.

I tried every single pair of running shoes. I suffered from shin splints, and then received a stress fracture. Once I started wearing these Brooks, my shin splints went away and I have ran 3 marathons...Everyone is different, but Brooks are great shoes...

I love these shoes. The only thing I don't like is that they broke down quick. I had to buy another pair quicker than I thought I should for my size and mileage. They only lasted 4 months.

Got this as a replacement for the Radius(my absolute favorite). I developed very bad knee pain about a month after starting to wear these and I am afraid to try to run in them again.
