I don't often see sales on Brooks shoes so I think 20% off is pretty good, especially if you're a fan.

In the US, brooks shoes are often found in nordstrom rack for SUPER cheap. I'm not sure if their runners find their way to winners / similar second tier stores here though.

Are Brooks shoes good now? The last pair I bought fell apart very quickly, but that was years ago.

Apparently their running shoes are considered very solid by runners.... Who knew. I associate Brooks with bargain stores in the mall.

Brooks shoes are absolutely brilliant. I currently own the glycerin 18 (also have glycerin 17) and it is one of the plushiest shoes you can buy. It literally feels running on clouds. I own few highly rated shoes like Adidas ultraboosts v4, ultraboost 19, hoka bondi 6 and epic Nike React flyknit, but when it comes to comfort and fit for long runs nothing matches Brooks glycerin shoes. Highly recommended...

Good find, Just bought Adrenaline GTS 19s last year and they are awesome. I am not saying they are for everyone but when I went into the running room this is what felt the best and they fitted for me. I had a post tib tendon injury 5 years ago that always nagged me no matter what (even tried custom orthopedics) and these gave me no pain at all.

OP thanked. The missus ordered a pair right away as she needs to replace her brooks and buys them at regular price (clearly not an RFDer) so any discount is a bonus!

Brooks are good. I picked up a pair of Men's Levitate from Sportchek for $30.00 in Clearance, 50 miles with no issues to report. I have tried all different types of runners and for me the Mizuno Prophecy is the ultimate pair to own ( I have style 6 and 7).

I used to think the same, until I could not find any Mizuno or Asics that fit me well.
Since then, I bought Brooks Ghost, which have about 500km on them and Brooks Glycerin, which I use only on my threadmill since december and I am at approx 250km on them.
Love those shoes. I am probably going to buy another pair before that deal is over.

Brooks Ghost has been my go-to neutral running shoes for the right amount of cushioning without being too plush. Fits my wider forefoot and narrow heel perfectly. Tried other brands and my heel noticeably lifts so I've always gone back to the Ghosts.

I've bought Brooks adrenaline for the family over the years.

Solid shoes but after about 2 years you may get a hole in the toe box, as it's a thin mesh material. Probably a good thing to tell me to replace it lol

Bought another just now.

Remember reading that one should always "spend the money on the things that are between you and the ground (shoes, tires, bed)"

Maybe you had a bad one, but I bought a glycerin in 2010-11 (glycerin 7 I think) and held well until 2014-15 or so.

I used to run a lot, but had multiple shoes (5 pairs on rotation), they lasted about equally as mizuno, Asics, new balance and saucony i had.

Ghosts are my favourite all-round running shoes. It's what I'd choose if I could only have one pair of shoes. The high drop is not for everyone though.

Also runningfree.com has 20% off Brooks and most other shoes right now.

Also love Glycerins. Ghosts are good too, but I prefer the thicker laces of the Glycerins - they don’t get knotted up as much. Yeah, strange criteria. :)

He was probably talking about the pairs you'd buy for $30 at discount stores in the mall in the 90s/2000s. Like I said before, Brooks has really made a name for themselves with their higher end running products....good for them. From wikipedia:
In 2001, the product line was cut by more than 50% to focus the brand solely on running, and its concentration on performance technology was increased. Brooks Running became the top selling brand in the specialty running shoe market in 2011,[5][6] and remained so through 2017 with a 25% market share.[7]

Brooks shoes have been named "Best Running Shoe" by publications including Runner's World[8] and Sports Illustrated.[9] The company has been recognized for environmental sustainability programs and technical innovation.[10][11

Oh I didn't know that - I first heard about both Brooks and Saucony back in 2010.
