Pros of Brooks Adrenaline GTS 13

Innovative design to minimize foot fatigue and stress

The Adrenaline GTS 13 features a light and an innovative design in the mid-foot and forefront for maximum cushioning and support for every foot strike. This helps prevent foot pain, foot stress and fatigue.

Within the forefoot is a dynamic Omega Flex Grooves that easily bend with the foot movement. The foot strike absorbs shock efficiently resulting in an even distribution of weight.

This prevents a collapse in an individual’s arches, therefore helping maintain stronger and more secure ankles.

The Adrenaline GTS 13 shoes feature a Moisture Managing Element technology that has been perfectly constructed using microfiber to provide users with both maximum breathability and weather protection.

They will hold both their form and cushion even in cold weather so that your workouts go uninterrupted. With these shoes, complaints about poor fit are rare. You will never experience the bothersome pinching and pulling that’s very common with most workout shoes.

The cushioning system automatically adjusts the shoes’ firmness depending on the amount of pressure you apply when running.

The midsoles are fitted with an added component to enhance the ability of the microbes to break down the midsole immediately the shoe gets into an enclosed landfill. In addition, there’s the profile sock liner that helps prevent socks from sliding down.

Bend and shape naturally

The combination of both Omega flex Grooves and Omni Grooves underfoot flex technologies enables the shoes to bend, stretch and shape naturally. The shoes’ triple density post found along the medial side offers additional support, and reduces shock.


The Brooks Adrenaline GTS 13 has been tested and proven to withstand heavy use. In fact, their impressive record of accomplishment for durability has drawn a lot of praise from experts and users alike. Even during heavy use, the shoes hold up very well and last many miles.

Improved stability

Adrenaline GTS 13 features an Advanced Support Technology known as the Progressive Diagonal Rollbar (PDRB) that improves stability.

PDRB is a unique biomechanically engineered midsole designed to offer maximum progressive pronation control to enhance smoother transition from mid-foot to forefoot.

This helps prevent excessive inward rotation, and therefore, reduces strain on the knees and ankles.

Runner’s World Winter 2012 editors credit the shoes’ mid-foot shank, midsole foam and wide base for its unmatched stability.

The midsoles foam grows firmer towards the inner parts of the shoe thus helping to slow down the foot’s inward roll. In doing so, the Brooks Adrenaline GTS stabilizes the arches very well.

Whether you are using the shoes for sprinting or for a long distance run, you will experience the greatest allowance of movement and stability. The shoe will continue to correct your stride even during extended workouts when your tired legs fail to keep up the best form.
