The Brooks Defyance 5 shoes are absolutely the most comfortable running shoes I have ever owned. They fit like a glove, and they don't bother my plantar fasciitis. I would continue buying the Brooks Defyance but, unfortunately, Brooks has discontinued wide sizes in the new Defyance 6 model. At least I was fortunate enough to buy last pair of Defyance 5 in 12EE on Zappos!

My husband has been a walker and runner for 30 years and has used Brooks shoes for about 15. This is the first time he's used this model. He really loves them and says they are the best he has worn.

I bought these primarily with my 30 minute daily walk in mind but I also use them as my everyday casual footwear. They provide a nice balance between cushioning and support. They are very comfortable with no break in required. I tried on the Brooks Adrenaline GTS 12 in a local store and like both the feel and colors of these shoes better. My previous New Balance cross trainers were size 10½D, I needed an 11D in these shoes. Zappos' part was as touted, very well executed.

I have been wearing the Defyance for many years now after replacing my old favorite, the Adrinaline. I love this Defyance models. The only problem I have it that the right shoe seems a tad smaller than the left. I hope it's just a one-pair mistake in the manufacturing process because I am ordering a new pair. The toe box seems a bit tight and the heel seems odd in the right shoe as well. Never have had this problem in any Boorks shoe until now. I've waited 8 months to write this review because I wanted to make sure I wasn't imagining things and to see if they would wear in but they did not. I think the only reason I didn't return them when I first received them was because I did think it would eventually give way. I still like the shoe and will continue to buy Brooks. It will take more than one pair of semi-ill fitting shoes to take away from the years of happiness the other pairs have given me.

Brands I'd also recommend: BROOKS!

Bought this to replace my old pair of Brooks. Could feel my big toes touching in the new shoes. Doesn't cause a blistering, but it is annoying. Shoe looks exactly the same as old, but fit is not the same.
