This has all the makings of a great shoe. I'm really surprised its not better known. It's the same shoe as the Adrenaline, without the support.
I've run in the Adrenaline for years but only got about 275 miles in them because the support enhances my the natural supination in my foot and I would wear out the outer edge. I put up with it because I really liked home they felt but was getting sick of running though a pair of shoes every 3 months. Then a local runner turned me on to these. They fit and feel like the Adrenaline, only my foot isn't being pushed to the outer edge.
I ran 13 miles with a pair right out of the box!
As far as sizing go, it feels true to Brooks Adrenaline sizing. Saying shoes feel true to size these days is essentially meaningless since all manufactures have their own sizing.

This running shoe has everything the long distance runner needs. Proper cushioning, very good support, durable, and not too heavy.
I do not understand why Brooks does not promoted this shoe more, roadrunnersport should too. This is the shoe the Ghost 5 should have been. If you want to log miles for any type of race (5k to marathon) this is the shoe to look for. Brooks please don't mess with this shoe. So far you have not. The difference between the Defyance 5 and 6 is nothing. Give this shoe it's due, and promote it.
Brooks is Price Fixing there shoes
Brooks Defyance 6 I have run in defyance for 5 years, over 40 pairs, Brooks has realy nice running shoes,but latley Brooks has been price fixing all there shoes at the same price at all web sites,thats not the free enrtprize,the country was build on.

One of the best shoes I've ever owned!
I have tried several types of Brooks shoes over the years. The Defyance 6 is by far the best fitting, most comfortable, lightweight shoe I've tried. I have used these both for road running as well as another pair for casual everyday use. Brooks Company, don't change a thing. You've finally got this one.

Running On Pillows
These shoes are so comfortable. I was running in the Brooks Ghost 4's and 5's prior to this shoe. The Defyance 6 shoe was more comfortable than both the Ghost 4 and Ghost 5. I agree with the other reviewers...........this shoe does not get enough airplay and I don't know why.
The Great Dane
A great update to a fantastic shoe. I got my pair as soon as they came out and already have over 200 miles on them. The shoe's "memory" forms to your foot quickly and makes running a joy. A great shoe that allows you to focus on moving miles down the road.
Great Neutral Shoe
This is a great choice for those who want more stability than the Ghost but still desire a quality neutral shoe. Does not have as much flex and has less toe spring as the Ghost, making it a good platform for orthotics without a too cushy feel
Great arch support and very comfortable. Although Ive had problems with blisters but i suspect that thats just because i picked a size too large
Need to half size up. Shoe feels great and hope it lasts as long as my previous pairs.
A must buy
I love this shoe! This is the best running shoe you can buy..
