A top rated Road running shoe

  • Brooks took a very conservative approach regarding change in the Aduro 3. One clear update is the removal of some of the overlays in the previous version. The upper shows almost no other substantial overlay except for the Brooks logo, which also acts as the midfoot support.
  • At the back end part of the shoe, the heel collar is more plush to enhance the comfort of this shoe.
  • Brooks also modified the outsole just a bit. There are bigger grooves in the outsole for better flexibility and transition from the heel to the toes.

As the Aduro line is designed by Brooks for entry-level runners, the fit and sizing of the 3rd edition are standard, just like the prior model, to accommodate most people. Runners will find enough room in the heel, a snug midfoot, and a spacious toe box. Available widths are D and B while the sizes are from 6 to 14 for the men’s and 4 to 11 for the women’s.


Brooks uses its proprietary HPR or High-Performance Rubber in areas that takes the brunt of the impact during running. This rubber is very resistant to abrasion for superb durability. The forefoot relies mainly on blown rubber for ideal traction. Brook’s trademark Omni Flex Grooves are a bit bigger in this version for enhanced flexibility and added effectiveness for every transition.


A full-length BioMoGo DNA, which uses Brook’s special midsole technology for adaptable cushioning, spans the length of the midsole. It is landfill-friendly, has great cushioning, and resiliency. Part of the midsole is the DRB Accel. Made out of TPU material, this midsole shank provides effective torsional stability. An insole board called the S-257 Cushsole gives added cushioning and flexibility. The last major part of the midsole is the DNA Circular system or a cushioning system in the heel and forefoot that is based on a highly-viscous liquid. It offers reliable shock-absorbing features and bounce back characteristics.


The Element is an upper technology that is characterized by microfiber construction. It is designed for weather protection without compromising the lightness and suppleness of the material. The upper includes breathable mesh and synthetic overlays for support. A removable sockliner adds step-in comfort and fit and can be easily replaced with custom orthotics. Brooks utilizes a Heel Cradle or a structured heel counter for enhanced heel lockdown and fit.
