Perfect shoe for me! It immediately felt great. I have not been able to find a comparable shoe since the Brooks Glycerin 10. I am on my feet a lot, walking and using an elliptical. I have patella femoral syndrome but this shoe is helping me.

Best shoe for distance running if you have a narrow heel and high arch. I have had several pairs of Brooks Defyance and have never been disappointed. I can run 10 miles or more without a break in period.

Love, love, love this shoe. Nice wide toe box, not constraining at all. You can actually feel your toes through the mesh. I have high arches, supinate and have a problem wearing many shoes, these are a nice neutral shoe that is very comfortable.

Prefer the Adrenaline GTS because the toe box is more secure on my foot. This one is comfortable, but felt loose in the toe box. I also think I need the support styles since I have minor overpronation issues. This style is a neutral style. Also, I order a full size larger in Brooks.

Tried several brands before I settled on the updated Brooks Defyance 7. My last sneaker was the Brooks Defyance 6. I use for walking outside and on the treadmill. I had to size up to a 7. Usually wear a size 6.5 in sneakers, 6 in shoes. They are light but supportive. The only thing I would change is the color. Wish companies would keep the colors more subdued. Brooks is now my first choice in sneakers.

I'd also recommend: Saucony, Asics
