Brooks is a well-established brand of running shoes that is considered a safe choice for many buyers. Predictability is a compliment in the case of Brooks as it’s known for being consistent with its designs and sizing approaches.
On its official website, Brooks recommends going half-a-size to a full-size larger than your casual dress shoe. However, if you already own a pair of running shoes from ASICS, New Balance, or Saucony, go with the same size.
If you don’t want to take risks, be sure to measure your exact foot length before ordering a pair.

How to convert Brooks unisex shoes
Some competition-ready options like Brooks Hyperion Elite and track models come in unisex sizing based men’s sizes. So, ladies should subtract 1.5 US sizes from their regular to achieve the right fit.
For example, if your regular running shoe size is 7, go for ‘M 5.5/W 7’.
How Brooks running shoes fit
A vast majority of Brooks shoes boast of the brand’s signature step-in feel. Some experienced reviewers can even guess a Brooks shoe with their eyes closed - that’s how plush and comfortable these models feel.
Just make sure there is a thumb width space between the longest toe and the upper. This extra room will help the toes feel more comfortable on longer runs.
