Brooks Men’s Adrenaline GTS 8 Running Shoe Review

Brooks Adrenaline GTS 8 Running Shoe ReviewAs a collegiate runner there is only one piece of equipment that I really need to worry about: the running shoes! Over the course of my training I have experimented with many brands of shoes including Mizuno, Asics, and Brooks. My success as a runner has depended on my selecting the correct shoes and making sure to replace shoes after a two month period. Even the best running shoes wear out and need to be periodically replaced.

This is a running shoe review for one of Brook’s most popular models, the Adrenaline GTS 8. I’ve been a fan of the adrenaline series ever since version 6, and version 8 didn’t disappoint. Let me make clear that the Adrenaline line of brooks shoes are meant for runners that are moderately pronated. This means the shoes are made in such a way that the inner edge of the sole bears the body's weight. If you are unclear on what type of shoe you need, many retailers of shoes can tell from the way you walk what type of support you need in a shoe.

The Adrenaline 8 running shoe includes a signature midfoot wrap, forefoot capture, and progressive support system. I noticed that the ankle support on the Adrenaline 8 is more snug than its predecessors, which for me is an improvement. I typically run around 8 to 10 miles each day while training, and build up to 70 mile weeks. The Adrenaline 8 always feels comfortable while running, and has a longer lifespan than others brands of shoes. After running 2 months with Mizuno I noticed that the material was beginning to tear and my quads were feeling sore. Not so with Brooks, a company that has always maintained an acceptable, if not high level of quality in their shoes.

The only downside to the Adrenaline 8 is linked to its greatest strength in that it provides excellent support. That is to say, Brooks shoes are comparatively heavy to brands such as Mizuno. This is where preference takes part, all shoes are not for everyone; there is no perfect type or brand of shoe. With that in mind, I am very pleased with the Brooks Adrenaline GTS 8 running shoes!
