With most of the country’s population under “Stay at Home” orders, it’s especially important to find ways to elevate your mood and boost immunity. And there’s no better way to get fresh air, exercise, and safely spend time outside under this mandate (we now call our “new normal”) than to go out for a walk, run or hike while minding the 6-feet apart rule!
Enter Brooks, the go-to and groundbreaking running brand that combines innovative-function with feel-good comfort and standout styling to power up your pace and fuel your fitness feats. Brooks has got your back every step of the way, so go ahead and lace up with Brooks to explore your neighborhood, admire a nearby resident’s garden, or simply see your community in a new light with a greater appreciation for life, all while staying strong.
What’s good Gab had the opportunity to review Brooks’ latest lineup, the Glycerin 18 and Adrenaline GTS20. Minding social distancing, we ran these sneaks in our neighborhood and even wore them out for an Easter run around the city to put them to the test.
Check out why these sneaks are standouts…
This neutral road runner features a reconfigured midsole, full length outsole, and added stretch in the upper to deliver more cushioning, flexibility and comfort for a plush fit and softer feel mile after mile.
The Glycerin 18 crushes the competition for the following reasons:
Mindfully designed midsole- Brooks has reengineered the 18’s midsole with increased DNA LOFT cushioning for incredible comfort. And the midsole-to-outsole ratio has been fine tuned for a plusher feel and smoother stride. You’ll be happy to experience that while the underfoot feel is softer you still get that same responsive energy return.
Enhanced full-length outsole- minor changes have been made to this runner-favorite outsole to improve traction and decrease weight while also enhancing the midsole. The placement of the rubber outsole features slight changes and its flex grooves have been improved for a softer-yet-smoother heel-to-toe transition—you WILL glide over the ground with smooth but grippy traction.
Perfectly plush fit- the 18’s upper features added stretch for a supreme level of comfort. The cool double jacquard and 3D Fit Print mesh upper is paired with a stretchy Ortholite sockliner, giving the shoe a highly breathable, comfortably flexible, and skillfully-structured non-slip fit that feels cozy and custom. The mesh upper feels stretchy and soft, delivering a luxurious experience.
Overall, Brooks Glycerin 18 delivers a dreamy dash that’s soft and smooth but responsive, a plush fit that’s stretchy yet structured, a breathable and lightweight feel, and ground-gripping traction to take on the road nimbly!
Brooks Glycerin 18 retails for $150, and is available in a variety of colorways for both men and women.
This stability stride star has turned 20 and there’s no sign of it slowing down from being the BEST ride for stability seekers. With a sleeker a look along with new integrated GuideRails support, I can assure you that the Adrenaline GTS 20 is the perfect balance of plush comfort and stability.
The Adrenaline GTS 20 is a stability staple for overpronators because of the following:
Holistic support system- the Adrenaline GTS 20 features integrated, streamlined GuideRails that deliver that much-needed support you need without feeling weighty or meddling. What’s more, they guide your feet so you stay aligned and moving smoothly on your path. Trust me, these shoes feel amazingly stable without being stiff!
Sleek and modern upper- Brooks has created a sweet and sleek stability shoe that’s stylish thanks to its redesigned upper made of 3D Fit Print that delivers an improved fit. Its airy and lighter engineered mesh upper is modern and sleek, and the elimination of restrictive overlays give this shoe an incredibly comfortable yet secure fit. Bottom line: the Adrenaline GTS 20 looks fresh and sleek, while providing a roomy and stretchy fit that nicely contours to your feet.
Premium midsole- the midsole features springy BioMoGo DNA cushioning in the forefoot paired with a soft DNA LOFT crash pad that provides that soft cushioning you crave without losing responsiveness. You will feel propelled and powered in your run while enjoying a premium plushness with each push off.
Overall, Brooks Adrenaline GTS 20 has a fresh mix of fave features combined with a lighter redesigned upper, all aimed to deliver optimal stability that feels smoothly natural while providing that cushioned comfort and springy responsiveness you appreciate!
Brooks Adrenaline GTS 20 retails for $130, available for both women and men in a variety of colors to match every mood and wardrobe.
