Available November 2017  – MSRP $120.00

In the newest iteration of their “go to shoe,” Brooks has made small tweaks to everything from the outsole to the upper. The Adrenaline GTS 18 should have a more comfortable ride and fit while providing the signature stability of the Adrenaline model.

To create a softer, more flexible underfoot feel, designers updated the BioMoGo DNA midsole foam. The Progressive Diagonal Rollbar is also updated and should provide the same level of stability for overpronation with a smoother transition. On the outsole, the rubber design has been tweaked in an effort to improve traction and durability.

The engineered mesh upper is completely new, and in addition to giving the Adrenaline GTS 18 a sleeker look, it should also provide a more comfortable feel. Reductions in the overlay design should also increase comfort by providing a more accommodating fit without creating a sloppy feel.

As a result of the numerous changes to the design, the men’s Adrenaline GTS 18 is 0.6 ounces lighter than its predecessor, and the women’s is 0.5 ounces lighter.
