Brooks Adrenaline GTS 7
Still a great shoe, and an excellent choice for bigger runners looking for a stable, everyday workhorse.

Our Review

The GTS in Brooks Adrenaline GTS stands for Go To Shoe. It’s not a bad acronym, actually, as it is a stand-out stability shoe. Recognising this, Brooks has made just a few minor tweaks to the GTS 7. It has added its MoGo midsole material, which makes the shoe a ...  Continue reading

I thought my Sauconys were made for my feet but when I tried these on I fell in love! Once the GTS 7's are no longer available I'll try the 8 or 9, hopefully they will like my feet as much as these do. Continue reading...
Great, just wish they lasted longer given the price. Continue reading...
Lovely shoe which does all I ask of it. A tad heavy perhaps, especially if it rains and they get water logged.
Great shoe though. Continue reading...
would thoroughly recommend them to fat blokes lokking to run long distanc races at 7-8 min miles Continue reading...


Anyone any advise on the Asics 2120 or Brooks Adrenaline. Just bought Asics Nimbus VIII trainers in Dec only to find out from the physio that they are not quite right for my mild over pronation and would like to hear some views on these before I splash out again so soon!

Go to a running shop and try them on before making any decisions. I've had a pair of Brooks Adrenaline and they are very comfy but I fall more into the moderate to severe range so I've moved up to a higher stability shoe.

Same here. Moved from Ascis 2110 to Brooks Adrenaline GTS 7 as the Asics weren't providing enough support. Best to compare when you can see what they're doing to your running though.

Abigail, it depends exactly how much support you need. The Brooks provide a little bit more than the Asics IMHO. I've recently had a friend who started out in Brooks but she was getting ankle pain so switched to 2110 and is now fine. She was a mild over-pronator but not needing the cushioning support that Brooks provide. Also it's worth noting that for some people the Asics inserts sit high up on the arches for some people.

I have just moved from Asics 1120 + 2120 to Brooks GTS 7, I will let you know how they go.... I run high ish mileage and have loved the Asics but faniced a change and the Brooks felt more solid and held my foot a little better...

Brooks for me too - but do go to your local running shop make sure they're right for you.

Yep, Brooks all the way for me, GTS6 but sure GTS7 is pretty much the same - really comfy shoes and have not had injury for years since I started running in them (touch wood)!!

As an update, my 2nd pair of GTS7 are still going strong after 450+ miles. I'm currently alternating them with Mizuno Wave Alchemy (designed for more severe pronation than 2110, GTS7, etc) as an experiment but Sunday's half marathon confirmed that these aren't quite as roomy in the front as my abnormally long 2nd toe is demanding, so I think I'll be happy with GTS7 all the way from now on. Very happy with them.

Ran 600 miles in 07 in Asics, and many more in previous years - brilliant until I got 2120s about six weeks ago - then dreadful plantar faciitis after just 6 runs doing nothing different at all. Decided to try Brooks Adrenaline and have not looked back. I have also started using orthoses in my non-running shoes to try and ease the PF (£23 off the shelf in Boots) and these probably make a difference as well, but running in the Brooks is great. I am using the shoes as they are, with no inserts and I can't see me switching back unless Brooks significantly change their shoes. I am a medium pronator typically just the wrong side of 12 stone. One new Brooks satisfied customer.
