Brooks Tran­scend 4

Canadian Running - - Gear -

$190; Men’s 303 g (10.7 oz.), Women’s 269 g (9.5 oz.); Drop ra­tio: 8 mm This pre­mium cush­ion­ing shoe de­buted in 2014 with an abun­dance of soft cush­ion­ing. The last cou­ple of it­er­a­tions saw Brooks tweak their de­sign, iron­ing out some mi­nor flaws. This fourth edi­tion has the Tran­scend won­der­fully di­alled in. Brooks’s Su­per DNA mid­sole is im­me­di­ately pleas­ant from the first wear. The tweaked guide rails also pro­duce an over­all smoother ride for such a gen­er­ously soft shoe. Up top, the 3D-fit print up­grades the stretchy up­per. And per­haps most im­por­tantly, Brooks fixed the Tran­scend’s heel counter, mak­ing for a much more sta­ble experience from touch down to toe off.
