Updates to Brooks Adrenaline GTS 15

  • The Brooks Adrenaline GTS 15 is a go-to running shoe for those who want to tackle daily running sessions, exercises and other training activities. It gives a balance of cushioning and support without forgetting stability and long-lasting performance. It has components and systems that provide quality service.
  • The upper unit of this running shoe makes use of a breathable mesh that’s meant to provide a coverage that’s well-ventilated. The interior sleeve is soft and smooth on the skin. The overlay system is comprised of stitched-on and printed units that help in providing a snug fit. The façade of this shoe is even visually appealing.
  • The mid-sole unit uses the amalgamation of two of the most well-known cushioning systems in the Brooks line of shoes. Lightweight and responsive cushioning is offered to the runner, but the material used here is non-toxic and biodegradable. It’s a welcome change for conservative and environmentally conscious runners. Stability is also given to those who need it.
  • The outsole unit uses blown rubber, which is capable of protecting the rest of the sole unit from wear and tear. It also adds a bit of cushioning because of its responsiveness and mildly springy nature. Flex grooves give the runner more freedom of movement, which is helpful in achieving a very efficient running gait.

Brooks Adrenaline GTS 15 size and fit

The Brooks Adrenaline GTS 15 runs a bit small. It is recommended for runners to purchase ½ size larger than what they’re used to in order to get a more relaxed fit. The available width is medium, so it accommodates those with medium sized feet. Its semi-curved shape follows the natural curve of the human foot, therefore allowing runners to acclimate well to it when wearing it.


Outsole

Blown rubber is a responsive material that adds a bit of cushioning with every step. And that’s on top of its durable and protective nature. It shields the mid-sole from the abrasive nature of the asphalt, basically extending the shoe’s lifespan.

Multi-directional flex grooves allow the platform to be more flexible, thus following the natural movement of the foot. It’s a very helpful design when it comes to enabling a more effective toe-off, which requires the foot to bend more in the forefoot section.


Midsole

The BioMoGo DNA is a mid-sole technology that mixes two cushioning systems. The DNA® tech gives lightweight cushioning that’s tuned to the dimensions and size of the wearer’s foot. It essentially gives contoured support that’s very responsive. BioMoGo® is another mid-sole tech that’s responsive and springy. It is made from non-toxic and biodegradable materials.

A contoured insole adds a bit more cushioning and support to the curves of the underfoot. It can be replaced with a new one.


Upper

A breathable material called the Element Mesh makes the upper unit feel very comfortable. It doesn’t absorb water or moisture, so it remains dry and cool at all times. It wraps around the foot snugly, but it doesn’t make the cover system feel stiff or restrictive.

The 3D Fit Print Overlays work with stitched-on ones to provide a secure and customizable fit to the runner. They are connected to the lacing system, so whenever the shoelaces are tightened or loosened, they follow suit, therefore causing the upper to adapt, as well.
