Brooks Running: New Kicks On The Block

Image may contain: shoes and text

From the ever softest midsole cushioning to the lightest and bounciest energy returns, running shoes have changed dramatically in 2018. And with 2018 in full swing, a new generation of groundbreaking road running shoes have started to emerge, led by the launch of Brooks’ innovative DNA Loft and DNA AMP features.

The new shoes – Levitate 2, features Brooks’ innovative DNA AMP, Ghost 11, and Glycerin 16 features the newest technology of Brooks: DNA LOFT, while Transcend 5 still has SUPER DNA but an updated guide rails and Adrenaline GTS 18 has its original BioMoGo DNA.
DNA Loft – The NEW standard in soft

A finely calibrated mix of EVA foam, rubber, and air, DNA LOFT is the new midsole cushioning in our softest running shoe yet. Engineered for unequaled comfort, EVA Foam puts more “ahhhhh” in every step, making this the softest midsole we’ve ever offered. Also an added rubber means you can stop worrying about your cushion holding up and enjoy the same blissful softness whether it’s your first – or 500th – time lacing them up. Extra air in the midsole ensures that DNA LOFT won’t weigh you down. Because cushioning that’s soft as a feather should be as light as one, too. Get lost in your run with the cushion that’ll keep you comfortable, step after step, run after run.

DNA AMP – The power to outrun yourself  

DNA AMP is a polyurethane (PU)-based cushioning system strategically engineered to provide unparalleled energy return. The foundation of DNA AMP is a PU foam that naturally expands, returning energy as force is applied. To deliver an amplified experience, Brooks encased the foam in a thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) skin that resists horizontal expansion to deliver energy directly back to the runner. The result is an engineered compound that provides exceptional energy return.

Here’s a look at what’s coming up the rest of this year and what we know about Brook’s hottest running shoes. 

Levitate 2 – Maximum Energy Return

The new Levitate 2 returns more energy with every stride, so runners feel like they can run further and faster. Combined with an outsole that moves quickly from heel to toe and a new sleek knit upper, Levitate 2 delivers maximum energy with every stride.

Ghost 11 – The smoothest ride possible gets softer and lighter

After a decade of engineering, the Ghost has more than earned its name. Straight out of the box it’s as comfortable as any shoe you’ve worn for years. And the Ghost 11’s ethereal feel is rivaled only by its responsiveness and durability.

Transcend 5Running’s most advanced support system, served super soft

Offering super soft cushioning and plush comfort, the Transcend 5 features Guide Rail

Technology, an advanced support system that provides holistic support from feet to hips.

Glycerin 16The ultimate in softness and supreme comfort—now even softer

You might be able to outrun our engineers. But when it comes to supreme comfort, super-soft cushioning and mile-after-mile plushness, you’ll never out-engineer them.

Adrenaline GTS 18Perfect balance of soft cushion and support, modernized

Now in its 18th version, the best-selling Adrenaline GTS is better than ever, with the same trusted cushion and support runners have grown to love, plus a new, streamlined look.
