Brooks adrenaline GTS 8

I bought these badboys about 2 months ago, I pronate a little bit so they offer good stability and just psychotic amounts of comfort. I've never felt so good in a pair of running shoes and would suggest these to all those who take running seriously.

If you're a severe overpronator, like myself, the only shoe to own is the Brooks Beast.

just depends on your feet!

when i bought those brooks the only competition it faced was the supernova sequence - i REALLY liked how they looked; the yellow on the shoe is sick.

A C-Note for running shoes. I can't afford that **** for shoes I'll only use to run. I only spend that much on shoes if they're Jordans. :D

those are nice and its always good to protect your feet and knees from shock. in my opinion tho if you cant afford it, and you are putting running in your boxing training routine then it doesn't matter, any type of athletic shoe will do. talking from a fighter's point of view, it might not be comfortable but w.e., i haven't worn any boxing shoes that give the comfort that most running shoes give and boxing shoes is what you fight in, not running so y not get comfortable not being as comfortable? all depends on your feet tho, i got high arcs so i get gel pads for my shoes, it'll save me at least 30-40$ from getting NEW running shoes. but if you got the money or save enough & really want it, then all the more power to you.

Yeah Brooks, Saucony and Asics are th eonly brands my local running shop recommend. They put me on a treadmill and see how my feet land on a camera. Then they tell me to stand on this thing that takes my heat footprint. Based on that they recommmended me a level 4 support shoe which was a pair of Saucony's. Any running shop that doe not do this are not serious. If you have had injuries you need to go again, as before I popped my knee I only needed a level 2 support. It showed on the heatprint, as one arch was touching the surface and other was not.

you have a point. i do stay in the gym and spar a bunch - but i'm hitting 29 years old and know that i wont have a career in boxing; running however, i may just get qualified to do a boston or nyc marathon - that i'd strive for; its just practical for a guy in my position.

don't let the price fool you, you can get these *****es for 60 bux on ebay, homes.

Stupid piost from a stupid person! They are a very important peice of training kit and if you do enough running to box, you will find out when you get shin splints or joint problems. Your body is more important than your Air Jordans. I got limited edition Air Hurraches but still buy Saucony's because running shoes are just as important as fashion shoes.
