Too stiff for my long run

By Jennifer

Comments about Womens Brooks Defyance 9 Running Shoe:

Disappointing. Very stiff and heavy. Between the stiff inner sole and the slipping heel, my foot was in pain by mile 8. I was hoping for more cushion based on the description. Unfortunately I will be returning these.


A half size larger was still too small

Comments about Womens Brooks Defyance 9 Running Shoe:

They were super cute, but I bought a half of size larger like recommended and they felt small. My toes were hitting the front of the shoe.

    Comments about Womens Brooks Defyance 9 Running Shoe:

    I've been buying Brooks ever since I started having Achilles' tendon and other foot issues years ago. I went to a specialty shoe store for my dress shoes and started talking about running shoes with the owner. He said the only shoe he carried and recommended for anyone with foot issues is Brooks. I've been injury free for over 10 years. The Defyance is my go-to shoe because of the comfort, cushioning, and neutral fit.

    Just great. I'm training for a marathon. I have a forefoot strike and I supinate and my IT band starts to act up after mile 16. These shoes are making ALL the difference.
