GREAT SHOE

Fantastic support, not too much cushioning that you lose "feel".
Maybe a touch on the heavy side???
Cracking support shoe, get them at Sportsshoes for £59 and you really can't go wrong.

GOOD FEEL BUT WORE DOWN QUICKLY

A good solid fit that feels pretty light while given stability. My only issue is with the wear on the sole, particularly the toes. After 250 miles they are already needing replaced whereas my Nike lasted 400.

SIMPLY SUPERB.

Turned to Brooks after a gap of several yrs mainly due to frustrations with recurrent achilles tendonitis when wearing Nike shoes (despite using appropriate shoes for my gait with orthotics),and haven't had a problem since. As soon as I tried these on could feel the difference. Less softly cushioned than Nike at rest but as well cushioned on the run. A closer to the ground feel than Nike and more responsive. Nice snug fit even for my slim feet - shoe feels part of the foot rather than an add on. Stable yet a smooth flowing heel to toe transition. Satisfying to feel that running in a more environmentally friendly shoe (midsole will breakdown in 22 yrs in a landfill site whereas traditional midsoles can take a 1000 yrs).
You might hesitate at the price - but discounts can be found. A harder shoe to track down than Asics or Nike so be prepared to travel to a specialist running shop. "Image" might be a problem but who cares when you run injury free. I suspect some with wider feet may struggle to get a good fit - but there is always the adrenaline available in a wide fit (albeit less forefoot cushioning).
This is probably a shoe that would suit most people unless a severe overpronator. Those with wider feet may also struggle to get comfortable. Great for high mileage training, well put together and feels as if they will last 500 miles plus easily. If on a tight budget go for the adrenaline which feels very similar in fit and feel but is slightly less cushioned especially in the forefoot. Don't buy the Asics Kayano until you've tried the Trance.
