  • 97 / 100 | Run Moore

    This, to me, feels like the best Brooks Adrenaline I've put on.

  • 94 / 100 | In Daily Life Have Fun

    Overall fit and feel great so far. I would definitely recommend this.

  • 90 / 100 | Running Shoes Guru

    Similar to bumpers in bowling, GuideRails are there when you need them and out of your way when you don’t. They work hard to reduce excess heel and shin rotation to keep your natural knee motion within a safe range, so you can run without pain or discomfort.

Updates to Brooks Adrenaline GTS 19

  • The Adrenaline GTS 19 is an update to a series of running shoes designed for overpronated foot motion. It features the next iteration of Brooks’ cushioning technology, the DNA LOFT, which is a blend of EVA, air, and rubber. The usual BioMoGo DNA cushioning is still in place to provide defined support to the foot that is wearing the shoe. The GuideRails Holistic Support System supports the medial part of the arch and the lateral portion of the heel, thereby giving a balanced underfoot performance.
  • The upper unit of this model contrasts its immediate predecessor, the Adrenaline GTS 18, because of the engineered mesh and 3D Fit Print technologies. These elements work together to provide secure and form-fitting coverage.

Brooks Adrenaline GTS 19 size and fit

The Brooks Adrenaline GTS 19 has a standard running shoe length, which entails that runners can get a pair with their usual sizing choices in mind. Widthwise, the available options for men are B – Narrow, D – Medium, 2E – Wide and 4E – Extra Wide; for women, the choices are 2A – Narrow, B – Medium, D – Wide and 2E – Extra Wide.

Outsole

The outsole unit of the Brooks Adrenaline GTS 19 is made of blown rubber, which is a compound that offers traction and protection against abrasion. It also provides extra cushioning through its spongy configuration.

Flex grooves allow the entire sole unit to bend with the foot as it goes through the gait cycle.

A segmented platform design helps in isolating the impact forces generated by the foot-strike, concentrating the energy to the contact point instead of rippling to areas that don’t need affectation.

Midsole

The midsole unit features the usual BioMoGo DNA technology from Brooks. This environment-friendly feature is meant to follow the cushioning needs of the individual, giving targeted cushioning to the entire underfoot.

The DNA LOFT is a lightweight but durable material that offers bouncy and consistent cushioning. It is made using ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA) piece, rubber, and air. These constituents mesh with each other to deliver sturdiness, comfort and consistent support.

The GuideRails Holistic Support System involves sidewalls on the lateral heel and the medial midfoot. These add-ons are constructed to lock the foot in place and prevent overpronation.

Upper

Providing breathable and form-fitting coverage is an engineered mesh upper. This cloth-like silhouette is also lightweight and smooth; it avoids rubbing uncomfortably against the skin of the wearer.

The 3D Fit Print technology entails a set of printed overlays that are placed on the sides and the heel. These add-ons are designed to hold the foot in place and prevent accidental shoe removals.

The padded tongue and collar are responsible for cushioning the topmost dimensions of the foot, particularly the instep, the ankles, and the Achilles tendon. These parts of the shoe are also meant to avert any in-shoe quivering during the run.
