5.0 out of 5 stars Back In the saddle, June 30, 2012
This review is from: Brooks Men's Trance 10 Running Shoe (Apparel)
I started out my running career in brooks. I got caught up in the hype and switched to "barefoot" shoes. Don't get me wrong, these are great for normal use and light training, but it's very easy to do too much too soon in these. My orthopod says they help keep him in business... Anyway, back to the point. My bare footing led to metatarsal stress fracture and degeneration of tarsometatarsal joint which knocked me out of the game for a few years.

My ortho suggested I try a shoe with more support and/or a carbon fiber insert. Tried the insert first with my lighter shoes and my gait was terrible. Then I invested in a pair of trance 10s. I tried them first without the insert and the results were wonderful. It was the first run in years where I didn't have to think about my feet and they didn't hurt afterwards.

Sorry I ever put my brooks down now, and very happy to be pounding the pavement again. These shoes have the stiffness I need with just enough give to allow me a normal gait. I have a narrow (13a) foot, and the medium feels like a perfect fit. The high arch support and full length DNA help minimize the movement of that painful joint and relieve the strain on that old fracture.

These arent going to be perfect for everyone, but brooks makes a whole line of excellent shoes (used to love the adrenalines). If you aren't happy with your shoes, give them a try!

8/23/12 UPDATE: Did a 13 mile run last week. Didn't think I'd ever make it up to that mileage again. Thanks Brooks!!
