Well I've ordered some, but have made a slight error, in that I've accidentally ordered them in the 2E width, whereas my previous shoes were in the D width.
From the research I've done it looks like the actual width of the shoe won't vary much, but the volume of the upper mesh will be larger. I guess until I try them on I won't know much more. I'd forgotten that proper shoes come in widths if I'm honest..
About 7 years ago I succesfully trained for and completed a marathon in a pair of Brooks Adrenaline GTS 5 (yellow and white if that helps identify them!). For various reasons I've not done a huge amount of running in the last 5 years and I'm now keen to gently get back into it.
Having thoroughly abused my running shoes playing squash in them, which is a specatularly bad idea by the way, they are definitely due for replacement!
I see that they are now up to Adrenaline GTS 12 - is this a direct replacement for a GTS 5, or will they have changed so they are no longer appropriate? I will be doing a mix of 50:50 pavement/woodland trails, but only very small mileage (2-3 mile runs) as a long-standing back problem means I'm unlikely to be able to increase this by much.
I would go to a shop and try some on, but I'll admit upfront that I'm looking to save some money by buying online and I don't want to unfairly use a shop's time when I don't intend to buy from them. Any advice much appreciated.
