BROOKS

HYPERION

Canadian Running - - FALL SHOE GUIDE -

Men’s 181 g (6.4 oz.); Women’s 153 g (5.4 oz.); Drop ra­tio: 10 mm; $150

The Hyperion has been around for a cou­ple of years now, and the Seat­tle­based run­ning shoe com­pany hasn’t messed with its ex­cel­lent de­sign at all in 2017. It’s an ex­tremely light and fast shoe, with a ba­sic chunk of eva for the slight­est amount of cush­ion­ing as you f ly through your next 10k PB.

Up top, the Hyperion’s smooth sin­gle wo­ven layer of fab­ric is sim­ple and sticks with the over­all ide­ol­ogy of this shoe: keep it light and fast. Of course, the Hyperion isn’t re­ally meant for ev­ery­day train­ing or run­ning more than a 10k or half-marathon, but it’s a per­fect sec­ond shoe in your run­ning tool kit for speed work, tempo runs or that big goal race. We’re happy that Brooks didn’t feel the pres­sure to need­lessly tweak the Hyperion, be­cause we love it just the way it is.
