Comments about Mens Brooks Defyance 8 Running Shoe:

These shows were recommended by my podiatrist to help me address plantar fascia issues. They've been successful in that regard and have also worked as comfortable everyday training shoes. I have had four pairs now. I am a midfoot/forefoot runner and my one complaint is that the forefoot cushioning breaks down a little earlier than it does on other shoes. But it does give me an excuse to buy a new pair that much sooner.
