About this deal

On my first steps around my kitchen I immediately noticed the rocker base, very much like past Transcend models but even more-so. A new streamlined, engineered mesh upper with 3D Fit Print offers the structure and proven fit the Adrenaline is known for — without excess bulk.

With regards to style, they went all out to diversify and offer tonnes of cool patterns and colours for all runners' tastes. The shoe is very breathable and flexible due to its 3D Fit knit upper and offers plenty of room in the toe box while hugging the heel and locking it down well. This is a very different product than the older Adrenaline(s) so know what you’re spending your money on. The upper is almost one-piece – the arch side has a thicker mesh with fused reinforcement and Brooks logo.Brooks describe it something like a bobsled careening down… whatever it is that's considered the bobsled's natural habitat. Work through a stiff upper to break the shoe in yet have more stability long haul, or try the StealthFit option to skip that step. This shoe can do just about anything but is ideal for me on long runs and marathon/half marathon training.

The Brooks Adrenaline GTS 20 is the best stability technology yet from Brooks, springy and solid responsive feel on the road, with equal plush cushioning than the Levitate or Ghost.Truth be told, I haven’t run longer in Adrenaline, but the lack of hot spots by 10 miles gives me a fair assessment that the shoe fit and support will hold up for higher mileage. The Brooks Adrenaline GTS 20 has largely held the line from the previous version with a few tweaks that improved the ride enough to pick up our Top Pick for Comfort Award. The mesh is softer, and so are the round laces that replace the flat kind used on the previous model. The "3D Fit Print" upper hugs the heels and wraps around the arch very securely, in the appropriate width and size. This upper is also similar to that in adidas Ultraboost shoes for a comfortable fit (and a much more low-key look).

The combination of “StealthFit” plus “Support” would create a comfortable lifestyle shoe that will handle a few miles on the weekends, or a moderately supportive shoe for low-stability needs. The Brooks Adrenaline GTS 20 Men’s Running Shoe has changed focus from the feet to the knees which can be one of the most injury-prone parts of the body when running.Even though the medial midsole is slightly softer, its solid sidewall design provides greater stability than the grooved lateral side. For whatever it is worth, models like the Glycerin 17 and Transcend give a higher level of high-mileage comfort. I took the Adrenaline GTS 20 out for many different runs, but most were longer road runs in my lead up to the marathon. The word “holistic” derives from the Greek holos meaning “whole”; the metaphorical usage means a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts—which is the perfect description for Adrenaline 20 (explained below).

One of the things that stood out in the GTS 19 and the 20 is the relative softness as compared to the older models. Otherwise, the GTS is a very comfortable neutral – uh, stability trainer that works for most runs except speed days. In the GTS 20, Brooks have added a slight overlay in the upper on the medial side for extra support for overpronators. The outsole pattern has the same general design as previous models, with diagonal hash marks gracing the rubber pattern (why?And yet, there will be runners who will be disappointed at the Adrenaline joining the neutral running camp.
