What’s different about the GTS 16?

Brooks Adrenaline GTS 16, review, test run

Deeper V-grooves along the sole of the shoe absorb and disperse impact by folding inwards. The full-length segmented crash pad delivers a smooth heel-to-toe transition, and the BioMoGo DNA midsole provides cushioning to give runners a comfortable ride on the unforgiving surface of the road.

The comfortable mesh upper of the Brooks Adrenaline GTS 16 will keep your feet cool and dry. The ‘tongue tied’ lace lock helps secure the laces in place, and the double eyelets allow runners to adjust the pull on the heel to find just the right fit.

Brooks Adrenaline GTS 16 Road Test

The flashy looks of the Brooks Adrenaline GTS 16 will turn heads on your run. In fact, a runner caught up to me out of breath and panting to ask about these shoes during one of my test runs. And, to be honest, that never happens. Usually, I’m the one passing other runners.

After putting about 50 miles on these new kicks, here’s what I can tell you. The Brooks Adrenaline GTS 16 is all about quality, comfort, and stability. If you’re looking for some shock absorbers to keep you healthy while you rack up the miles, check ’em out.

I only had one minor hiccup. I was cruising along through the awful first mile of my run, when I noticed that my no-show running socks were creeping down my heel. Well, that’s strange. I stopped and untied my shoes, adjusted my socks, and then tied my shoes using the last eyelet towards the heel of the shoe. No problems since.

These shoes were sent for review.

  1. The strip around the toes kills me. my toes hurt and feel numb. brooks offered to help me solve the problem but i just figured i could deal with it but after many runs of only three miles each, i cant take it. I was measured before i bought them and have worn the 13s with no problem.

  2. I have had this model shoe from Brooks for 5 years and they were the best shoes I have ever had. The 16’s, however, as mentioned above, rub against the top of my right foot, just behind the toes. The uppers have had a substantial change in design – looks like Brooks is trying to cut costs.

  3. These shoes are very stiff.. or at least the Men’s all black model is. They feel very high in the heel too.. according to runners world the drop on them is 13.3mm not 12mm.
    Love the way they look but returned them.

  4. I must say that I am not very happy with my ADRENALINE GTS16. With all my shoes so far (I am using exclusively BROOKS since the past 6 pairs) I did run about 500 miles with a pair.
    The GTS 16 started to disintegrate pretty quick on the right heel extreemely and on the left a litte less but still a lot to much since 125 miles.In my eyes, the rubber mixture is not appropriate.
    I have send a report to BROOKS HQ and BROOKS Belgium, in charge of the area I leave. Theyr interest was weak. I was sent to the store I purchased all my running shoes.Here I did some tests and left the store with a new pair of BROOKS BEAST. Initially, I was convinced about the choice.
    For me, the BROOKS BEAST is to beg and to havy for the marathon I will run end of this month.
    For this reason, I purchased today a other brand and BROOKS has lost at least 1 client.
