Specifications:

Great wide sneaker

5

I'm a middle age woman with wide feet (I buy the wide width of these) and slight pronation, who uses her sneakers mainly for walking and trips to the gym. I've been wearing the Adrenaline for a few years now because they fit my feet perfectly and provide the support and cushioning I need. I have to lace to prevent heel slippage and on some pairs, the laces are long enough, but on others, I've had to buy a pair of longer laces (or steal them from an old pair of sneakers). The mesh is nice for cooling, but not so nice for walks on rainy days or through wet grass in the morning. They last an average amount of time for the miles put on them and the quality is good. Definitely recommended.

Adrenaline never disappoints!

5

I have worn Brooks for nearly 20 years, and the Adrenaline is one of my favorites. The shoe has a wide toe box and is very comfortable for those with painful bunions. Make sure you order up a 1/2 size like RRS suggests. I wear a 6.5, so the 7 is perfect for all Brooks shoes. Other shoes always give me a blister right under my ankle bone, and on my Achilles, but Brooks are cut perfectly to provide support and still not rub on those sensitive areas. Take these shoes out on a cold day and you will instantly notice the breathability--great air circulation to reduce the chance of blisters from sweaty socks.

No more pain!

I love these shoes! After running just a few feet in my old pair (non-Brooks), my shins would burn like crazy and after about 3/4 of a mile, my knees would start to ache. The first time out in these babies and no pain at all! Will definitely continue on with this line once my current ones wear out, which should be in just a couple months!

Adrenaline, perhaps, but no endurance!

3

I've been running in Brooks for the past three years and loved the Ghost2, but decided to go back to the Adrenalines because of the support/cushioning and quality they are known for. Like other reviewers, I'm disappointed that the padding under the forefoot wears out so easily. I began running in the GTS9s in the beginning of January, and I already need to replace them...desperately.

Love these shoes!

I use these shoes for running on the bike trails. Very comfortable and light. Thought I could get away with other models, but ended up coming back to the Adrenaline GTS. I have a bunion on my right foot and have no pain or discomfort during exercise. Will definitely stick with this model.

Not as good as the Adrenaline GTS8

3

I use these sneakers to walk at least a few miles everyday, and they didn't have as much arch support, which is the main reason I buy Brooks. Disappointing. I hope the GTS 10 is back to the quality of the previous Adrenaline models.

I'm a Brooks Girl, I guess! Owned 2 prs. of Adren. GTS 8s during 2008-loved those. Did my first run today in my new GTS 9. Felt like a glove! I agree with the previous review-more cushion in my GTS 9 than the GTS 8. Offered the support that I need for my mild over-pronation. Completed a short 8 mi. run today and feel great! Looking forward to running my 1/2 Marathon next weekend in these. No breaking in required for me. I'll keep buying Brooks! I also love the "Peacock Blue " color trim on these-my new color for winter running!

I have owned GTS 5, 6, 7, and 9. By far, the GTS 6s were the best. The 7s lost their cushion too quickly. Now, the 9s seem like a whole different kind of shoe . . . for the worst! I've developed a lateral knee problem after 5 days of wear along with a pulled arch in my left foot. In addition, my feet go numb after about 5 min of wear. They are not comfortable at all. Very disappointed.

I own all the adrenalines back to GTS 5 and I love them all. However, GTS 9 has a smaller toe box, which I found out because my big toe joint was hurting on top (symptom of bunions). I even went back to my GTS 8 and went for a run to see if it's the shoe and my foot felt great until I slipped back into the GTS 9, my joint instantly began to hurt. I'm afraid to buy the new GTS 10...

Training for a marathon, always wore asics but the 2140's gave me shin splints. Tried these and after an 18 mile run, the top of my foot went numb. It has been a month and my foot is still numb. There is also no forefoot cushioning. Never had problems with the balls of my feet but now I do. These shoes are going back. Going to try the Kayano's or the new 2150.

I can honestly say that these are the greatest running shoes that I have ever owned. They are extremely light, well cushioned, have tons of support, and fit my foot like a glove. I have taken them on runs ranging from 5-14 miles and they always feel great! Even if you liked the Adrenaline 8s you will like these much, much more!

I have had this series of shoes for 7 years. For my feet they are a perfect fit! Every once in a while I will try something else and the something else becomes an everyday shoe and I purchase these again. For my pronation they fit fabulous. Like any running shoe, until you know what you like and what works, try them on.

These shoes are great! I initially bought these as alternate running day shoes and fell in love. Very comfortable and kind of like running on pillows, even on the dreaded treadmill runs. The only reason I'm not giving 5 stars is because I initally went with the 1/2 size up, but I had to return them for a full size up.

2

The Adrenaline 9's are built like high heels: high, cushion-y heel, slanting to little cushion in the forefoot. These shoes are also very flat in the toebox (width is okay, just not very roomy vertically). I am an Adidas fan due to the depth of most of their stability shoes, so I guess I'm going back to Adidas.

I have worn the Brooks Adrenaline GTS' for years now but the GTS9 is terrible. They hurt my feet and feel nothing like the GTS8. Luckily I found the GTS8 on closeout sale on another site until I can find a different type of shoe. It seems the other reviewers like the GTS9 and I wish I could say the same.

I give these a thumbs up. I ran my first marathon back in '04 and I haven't looked back. I have tried other running shoes, but nothing has ever compared to the fit. Brooks has always been true to their quality and I feel that I can count on them and will for many more years to come.

Found a light weight sturdy shoe that finally fits my narrow foot without feeling bulky. Had previously run in Asics Gel Nimbus and was very disappointed in the lack of motion control. These Adrenaline's seem to be perfect from the beginning. Couldn't go wrong with this shoe.
