Brooks Running PR Sprint 10.45

Sport: Racing
Weight: 4.4 oz

Brooks Running Says: "Fighting in the lightweight division, the PR Sprint has a simplified upper for more aerodynamic performance and a closer, lighter fit. The forefoot is on lock down with a dynamic strap delivering great support in the power position. And with asymmetric saddle construction, your foot stays on the platform so you can focus on making every step count."

Brooks Running Racer ST 5

Sport: Race
Weight: 8.6 oz

Brooks Running Says: "This shoe is super lightweight for racing but has the substance and durability required for tempo runs and training. With the long-lasting cushion of BioMoGo, your feet will stay protected and your legs fresh, mile after mile."

Brooks Running T7 Racer

Sport: Race
Weight: 6.4 oz

Brooks Running Says: "This incredibly light road-racing shoe is the fastest in the pack, sporting eye-catching design for fly-by style. The streamlined, asymmetric upper works with the anatomy of the foot to wrap the arch securely from start to finish."

Brooks Running QW-K

Sport: Race
Weight: 5.8 oz

Brooks Running Says: "The full- length spike plate provides exceptional traction and just the right amount of rigidity and flex, where and when you need it. Ideal for distances of 100 to 400 meters, this head-turning spike is designed to break tape."

Brooks Running The Wire 2

Sport: Race
Weight: 3.5 oz

Brooks Running Says: "Weighing in at a svelte 3.6 ounces, this speedster’s upper boasts reinforced mesh and an internal suede saddle that holds the foot on the platform with minimal materials. Even the overlays are screen printed on to add a pop of color without excess weight and less seams. Spike plate flex grooves bring efficiency to the propulsion phase with ample toe flexibility."


Brooks Running ELMN 8

Sport: Race
Weight: 4.9 oz

Brooks Running Says: "This lightweight, yet aggressive champ boasts a super supple mesh upper with conformable foam components. In the underfoot, a unique spike plate and three-density materials support a powerful transition that makes every step count."

Brooks Running Ghost 5

Sport: Running
Weight: 10.7 oz

Brooks Running Says: "We took the best of past Ghost designs, built in new innovations, and then merged it all with striking colors and patterns. This shoe hits the sweet spot for a wide range of Neutral runners with a finely crafted Caterpillar Crash Pad and anatomical Brooks DNA."

Brooks Running DEFYANCE 6

Sport: Running
Weight: 10.8 oz

Brooks Running Says: "The Defyance 6 is packing anatomical Brooks DNA, an adjustable eye row for a fit that couldn’t get closer, and a Caterpillar Crash Pad that isolates each moment of the laydown for a smooth transition. The 6 also gets lighter upper materials for improved breathability and a wrap-the-foot fit. Now get that green out of your eyes Neutral runners."

Brooks Running Adrenaline GT 13

Sport: Running
Weight: 11.3 oz

Brooks Running Says: "Lucky 13 is our best Adrenaline GTS yet. We paid special attention to the underfoot flex by adding Omega Flex Grooves and continuing Omni Grooves in the forefoot, allowing the outsole to bend and shape naturally. Continuing with the tradition of a tailored fit, stretch eyelets lock into the medial side to capture the foot better and technologies like Flextra and anatomical Brooks DNA deliver customized stability and cushion. No luck here, just purely good design."

Brooks Running TRANCE 12

Sport: Running
Weight: 12.2 oz

Brooks Running Says: "This shoe has a taste for the finer technologies in life like an incredibly articulated Caterpillar Crash Pad that segments the midsole for a perfectly smooth heel-to-toe transition. We moved the heel counter to the outside of the shoe for even more interior comfort plus built in bootie-like design for a silky feel. Pretty soon, this shoe will be on an episode of MTV® Cribs."

Brooks Running Ravenna 4

Sport: Running
Weight: 10.8 oz

Brooks Running Says: "This season, this shoe is bringing a little more cushion, a bit more flex, and a whole lot of swagger with sleek design lines and fast colors. We’ve also honed in on midfoot capture and engineered a saddle that envelopes the foot with an adjustable band. Not too Neutral and not too Support, the Ravenna 4 is juuust right."

Brooks Running CASCADIA 8

Sport: Running
Weight: 11.9 oz

Brooks Running Says: "The Cascadia 8 was designed from the gritty, wet, and uneven ground up. Engineered to adapt to the surface and your foot, this versatile piece of equipment runs an ultramarathon and then asks for more. We swapped out the midsole for BioMoGo DNA to create a super cohesive transition and deluxe-ified the Caterpillar Crash Pad on the lateral side to smooth that heel-to-toe even more. The suede geometric pattern on the upper is a shout-out to past Cascadia designs but also serves the function of wrapping the foot for a close fit."

Brooks Running PR MD 46.61

Sport: Race
Weight: 3.7 oz

Brooks Running Says: "We improved the medial side with a built-in stretch material to secure the arch—perfect for when you’re eyes are on the finish tape. New, airy mesh keeps the weight down and increases breathability so you don’t hot house your fast feet. Asymmetric design tops off the list of features for this 400 to 1600 meter and hurdle spike."

Brooks Running PR LD 4:15

Sport: Race
Weight: 3.7 oz

Brooks Running Says: "We improved the medial side with a built-in stretch material to secure the arch—perfect for when you’re eyes are on the finish tape. New, airy mesh keeps the weight down and increases breathability so you don’t hot house your fast feet. Asymmetric design tops off the list of features for this 400 to 1600 meter and hurdle spike."

Brooks Running PUREFLOW 2

Sport: Running
Weight: 8.8 oz

Brooks Running Says: "The key to blending the two is engineering comfort features in a lean manner like a shaped BioMoGo DNA midsole that gives your feet a cushy feel without added materials. Or a Nav Band that locks into the medial eye row to wrap the arch without underfoot bulk. It’s a harmonious union that your feet will hunger for."

Brooks Running PURECONNECT 2

Sport: Running
Weight: 7.2 oz

Brooks Running Says: "With new upper mesh, this slim and nimble turn-hugger is for runners who crave less shoe and more freedom. A split toe groove extends toward midfoot, engaging the natural movement of the forefoot and creating a greater sense of feel. Sporting rad new looks, the PureConnect is ready to run, right out of the box."

Brooks Running PUREGRIT 2

Sport: Running
Weight: 8.2 oz

Brooks Running Says: "We constructed a new outsole with a more aggressive, multi-directional lug pattern for better grip on the ever-changing surfaces of adventure. Its concave shape delivers better balance by splaying out upon impact and creating more surface area for ground contact. The upper has been re-worked to give runners a better midfoot wrap and its new, blazing colors will light the trail on fire. Metaphorically."

Brooks Running PURECADENCE 2

Sport: Running
Weight: 7.7 oz

Brooks Running Says: "Features like the internal PDRB help prevent overpronation without added parts and the wide Nav Band holds your foot like an endless hug. With a new wrap tongue, the feel of this lovable shoe just gets better. Add a fresh look and some street cred, and this featherweight friend will run footloose and fancy-free with you."

Brooks Running PUREDRIFT

Sport: Running
Weight: 5.1 oz

Brooks Running Says: "Spread those toes with dual Toe Flex splits that allow your forefoot to flex through its three functional units, creating natural balance and a springy push-off. An anatomical last mimics the shape of your foot for a closer fit and the hardly-there upper provides just a little more coverage than a birthday suit. When you really want to feel free as a bird, remove the sockliner for a zero drop experience. No-seam construction keeps it comfortable and a soft platform mellows impact. Feet, meet feel."
