Just upgraded from the GTS 11s because I wore them out. The 12s have the same great fit and cushioning. There is a very noticeable increase in ventilation through the mesh areas, which is much appreciated. If you liked the GTS 11s, you will like the new GTS 12s.

Great shoe, initially. Started breaking down after 3 months. Plastic started cracking and support was gone after 4 months.

Ordered a pair of the Brooks GTS 12 after reading the reviews. The reviews were on the money. I wear a hard to fit 12.5 D width and these fit great. Am ordering another pair now. Very happy with fit and finish.

I bought theses shoes a few weeks ago and have run one 10K in them. Although I have never ran with Brooks shoes before, I have found them to be supportive and very comfortable. I have no issues with them. I will buy them again.

My husband bought the GTS 11's last spring and that was his first pair of Brooks. He is a 'big and tall' guy and loves them. he just rec'd the GTS 12's and so far, they feel the same to him. He loves the support.

I like these even better that the GTS 11 pair I bought last year. I go through a pr of these every 6 months or so because I wear them all the time. Being a gal with luau feet (super wide) I can't get women's shoes that are comfortable enough. These are great and the 4E width works. I can fit a heel cushion in it too. They finally shortened the laces enough! I like the blue/gray color best. Nice big toe box!

These shoes are great! I have loved every model of the Adrenaline. I have not noticed any striking differences in the feel of the 12 versus the 11, but that is good. I do not think that they needed to change anything as they are already a great product. I do love the new green and metallic color!

The quality of this shoe is great, they seem very well made, and details are thoroughly considered. I'm running 30-40 mi. a week right now and found them to be a bit too firm, I'm a 200 lb runner. I typically run in Asics or the Nike Pegasus and have no problems with my knees or with cushioning. After about 70 miles in the Brooks Adrenaline 12 I started having knee issues. I have since stopped wearing them and recovered.

Brands I'd also recommend: Nike, Asics

Disappointed to be honest. This was meant to be my 5th straight pair of Adrenalines and the sizing or stitching has changed to the point that it is simply too uncomfortable to wear. They have not made it out the house and are sitting there taunting me in their brand spanking new box. Wish I would have known this before buying from overseas. Major hassle to send back to the USA to take advantage of free shipping. Definitely smaller sizing than marked!

I really like these shoes. they fit true to their size and felt like clouds when I went for a run. I am currently serving in Afghanistan and Zappos also got them to me relatively fast for my location. This is also the third pair of GTSs I have owned. Great Shoe.

I have been using this shoe for four years and find it durable for use even after use as a walking/running shoe. I am a narrow fit but the medium works well for me as does the stability. It is a real value!

I have been an asics fan for years but I tried out the adrenalines and they are a great ride. I am a big runner and these shoes give great support and comfort on the long runs. Overall must buy.

Very satisfied with this new generation of Adrenaline GTS. Good support but feels reasonably light. Will definitely keep me in the Adrenaline family. Color options are a little bit more flashy than I like.

I have to say, after 26 years of running the Brooks Adrenaline GTS12 is the best runner that I have had. I will definitely buy another pair.

I bought the GTS 12 to replace a pair of GTS 7's I wear in the gym only. They haven't disappointed. A very comfortable and quality shoe. The added lace hole on the tongue is a nice touch. My only complaint is the abundance of silver used, even the laces are silver.

Great shoe. I was able to put these on & never had to 'break them in'. No blisters, no discomfort anywhere, just pure comfort from the first time on my feet. I jog & they offer great support to the arch & ball of my foot.

I received my 2012 Adrenalins recently. They fit my foot and felt very nice to me on a 6mile run, right-out-of-the-box. I rotate shoes daily and still use the 2011's. On soggy days, the 2010's still work. They hold-up nicely for me. I'm 5'9 at 56lbs and average 36-40mi./wk, year-around. I rotate 3 pairs of shoes with a couple pair of special-use shoes mixed-in. An excellent mid-level shoe in terms of support. Highly recommended.

Once I finally got down to what was an appropriate shoe for my foot, I looked for color options. As far as I know, I believe that Zappos.com is the only place you can purchase this colorway. They are great shoes thus far and not bad to look at either. I have gone through Mizuno Nirvana's and Inspire's, but these Brooks are the perfect blend of cushion and support.

Brands I'd also recommend: Mizuno Wave Nirvana, Nike Lunarglide 3+

I've used the Brooks Adrenaline GTS line since GTS 7 and this model just reconfirms my loyalty. Most other shoes cause pain from my feet to my knees to my back, but these are exactly what I need.

Have worn these shoes beginning with the GTS 9 and always found them very comfortable. Unfortunately, they don't remain comfortable for as long as I would like considering the price, but not sure any of the competition would either. Love the fact I can get them in 4eeee as I have very wide feet. Zappos ships fast and free!
