    With the same support as the road shoe, this trail version has a little extra teeth underfoot to handle uneven surfaces with ease.

  • Brooks does a considerable job where changes come in the Adrenaline ASR 13. The latest model has a new and more pliable mesh. Brooks also eliminated the heavy overlay around the toe box with a thinner and welded overlay. The result is a more forgiving feel and added space in the toe box. It also removes the risks of irritation in the forefoot.
  • The stitched support in the eyelet is also removed to lessen hotspots or blisters. In this version, a welded overlay provides decent durability without the mentioned risks. It also helps with the weight reduction.
  • The outsole gets some significant modifications in the new version. From the toothy forefoot lugs, Brooks uses a plainer rubber configuration. It helps the shoe become the road/trail hybrid that it is intended to be.
  • Another substantial change in the upper this road running shoe is the presence of a deep vertical flex groove that extends from the heel to the forefoot. This groove improves the transition of the foot from landing to take-off and flexibility.

The fit of the Adrenaline ASR 13 is largely the same as the previous edition. It has good space in the forefoot while the midfoot and heel are quite snug. Most runners of different types of feet should be able to get their most comfortable feel in the shoe. The sizing of the shoe runs true.


The outsole lugs in the forefoot are not as rugged as before. Replacing the rugged outsole is a more regular configuration for better road to trail use. The sides of the foot, though, and the heel still continue to offer significant lugs for excellent traction. Brooks uses HPR Plus carbon rubber in the heel and other impact areas to curb wear and tear. The forefoot has Blown Rubber, which is a bit softer, for more traction.


Brooks’ unique BioMoGo DNA midsole foam covers the full-length of the midsole. This technology, which is designed for noticeable responsiveness, durability, and smooth transitions, is also present in the Adrenaline GTS 19.

The stability of the 13th iteration of the Adrenaline ASR is made possible by the Progressive Diagonal Rollbar or a tri-density foam stretching from the heel to the midfoot. As the density goes from soft to firm as it goes to the midfoot, there is a gradual progression of the degree of the stability. Adding more stability in the midfoot is a TPU insert called the DRB Accel. The material also helps with torsional rigidity for more structure and support. A Segmented Crash Pad delivers superb shock-attenuation and improves flexibility.


A water-repellant Element Mesh that is very breathable and comfortable covers a large portion of the Adrenaline ASR 13’s upper. The welded overlays provide support and greatly help with the midfoot hold. Brooks utilizes its own BioMoGo Sockliner for more comfort and cushioning. The interior also keeps the foot dry because of the Hydrophobic Foam Package.
