Brooks running shoes are an excellent choice because Brooks develops shoes based on sound science principles and make different types of shoes for different types of feet.
As Daniel Blanchette, store manager of an Austin Texas shoe store, explains, Brooks offers different shoes for different types of feet. He talks about 3 popular running shoes known as Brooks Beast, Adrenaline and Glycerin8.
If you have a low arched foot, the Ariel or Beast shoe would be more to your liking, as they have motion control elements built into the shoe and the relatively straight features built into that. The Beast shoe was designed with the severe over-pronator in mind. A favorite among dedicated runners and walkers alike, the Beast has an extended diagonal roll bar for stability and a smooth transition.
If you have a high arched foot, the Adrenaline would be better for you with mid-foot support and the cushioning at the heel. The Adrenaline GTS series has been one of the most successful running shoe in Brooks stores around the US. A recent major improvement in this shoe is the addition of the DNA technology to the heel and the forefoot of the shoe. This is a cushioning technology that is adaptable depending on the weight, the stride, and the speed of the runner.
If you are seeking great cushioning, you can’t go wrong with the Glycerin 8, an award winning shoe. This shoe features a very unique cushioning system called DNA, which actually won the Editor’s Choice Award by Runner’s World because of its innovative makeup. This shoe essentially adapts to your feet and as you move faster it becomes more supportive and when you walk slower it will be more cushioned.
Brooks is a very eco-friendly company, as it is the first company to make a biodegradable mid sole of their shoes, saving tons of space in landfills each year.
All in all, Brooks running shoes are excellent running shoes with a variety of styles to suit your needs.
