Canadian Running - - FALL SHOE GUIDE -

For nearly 20 years now, the Adren­a­line, along with Brooks’s Ghost Glycerin mod­els, have cre­ated a trio of pre­mium cush­ion­ing of­fer­ings. The Adren­a­line gts 17 is one heck of a durable shoe. It can with­stand more miles than per­haps any other shoe in this re­view, so cost per wear is ex­tra­or­di­nary.

For fans of pre­vi­ous ver­sions, worry not. This is not a big de­par­ture from ver­sion 16. Like the pre­vi­ous in­car­na­tion, the Adren­a­line 17 pro­vides a soft ride and sports an im­pres­sive amount of cush­ion­ing. The BioMoGo dna mid­sole foam takes on the shape of your foot, while the clev­erly de­signed “roll bar” within the mid­sole main­tains sta­bil­ity for run­ners who over­pronate. The out­sole is made from blown rub­ber that’s seg­mented in a cater­pil­lar-like struc­ture, mak­ing it tough but quite f lex­i­ble. The up­per is also tough, if a touch bulky, but that’s al­ways go­ing to be the trade-off when mak­ing a more durable shoe.
