I have just got the GTS 11's, I have had about 4 or 5 pairs of 10's, they feel a litle roomier to me, but it might just be that new shoe feeling as all of my GTS10's have about 500miles on them and are well worn in. I can just notice the DNA cushioning in the forefoot (i am a midfoot runner) but not in a bad way, did 10mile run in them straight out of the box last night and no issues. Will give them a proper workout this weekend.
The GTS 10 is my personal workhorse and I love it. For mixed terrain ultras, it is in a class by itself among the road shoes in its support category.
Have not taken the plunge with the GTS11 yet. I am a little bit concerned that the DNA might not retain its characteristics as well as the hydro flow did, but time will tell.
Had by GTS11's about a months and a half now and absolutley love them - they are my first pair of proper running shoe. I did get a blister on the arch of each foot but i think this was mostly due to my feet being new to running and me increasing distance.
It might be just the runnung in factor but they feel heavier than the 10s
The 11 is better than the 9, but not a patch on the 10 IMHO
Initially I found the GTS 11 more comfortable than the 10s (which I love). But then I started to get a pain in the front of my foot (behind toes, on sole). Im assuming this is the DNA not supporting the foot equally across the shoe. Have retired to the 10s, and Im looking for a few pairs before they all disappear.
I thought it was in my head the small pain on my ball on the big toe but yes, sounds like the same problems above !
Only problem too is how it treats my toes as feels cramp in. May go back to my 10's this week to compare as I already ran 60 miles in the 11's to give it a go.
I can't describe shoes properties to describe why it may be giving these problems so I am not going to try!
I've had the same problem with my second pair of GTS11's. I'm now on my 6th pair of Adrenaline's without any previous problems. My first pair of 11's were great but the second pair I've had a pain on my right side, ball of my foot. I thought it was just me but then I tend to run on the outside of my feet. I'm finding that my feet ache more than my legs when on long runs...on the positive it give me something else to think about I guess!!
I love Brooks so am hoping that the GTS 12's are better.
I've had no problems with Adrenalines -Think I'm on my 9th or 10th pair at the moment. When it comes to new shoe time I try other makes and models but always comeback to the Adrenaline. Never had any blisters or related problems. The only whinge I have is the price but then again you gets what you paid for.....

So disappointed with these. Order came very quickly but they are much narrower than previous ones. Tried walking around house in them but they are going to hurt my feet. Need to return them. Have worn Adrenaline's for years with no problems so not sure what to get. Only 3 weeks till VLM and no new shoes.
