Brooks Adrenaline GTS 21


The legendary Brooks Adrenaline is twenty-fun and celebrating with a makeover.

Fresh new colorways and cutting edge tech come together in the Adrenaline GTS 21 delivering the adaptive support and ideal softness you know and love.

Guide Rails support shifts the focus from the feet to the knees. The holistic support system reduces excess movement so your knees and hips can move more naturally to keep you running comfortably and to keep injury at bay.

DNA Loft cushioning is a staple for the Adrenaline GTS. Now, Brooks extended the soft foam from the heel all the way to the forefoot to maximize cushioning, making each stride buttery smooth. Add in BioMoGo DNA foam to the midsole for heightened responsiveness and you’ve got the perfect recipe for a balanced, smooth ride.

The brand new Air Mesh upper with 3D Fit Print technology is specially engineered to hug the foot for a breathable, yet secure fit. Clean edges and sleek colorways keep this classic shoe looking timeless and fresh.

The Adrenaline GTS 21 has arrived, become part of the legacy today.

Things We Love About the Brooks Adrenaline GTS 21:

  • DNA LOFT cushioning now extends throughout the midsole for an even smoother transition from heel to toe
  • Air Mesh upper with 3D Fit Print technology offers snug fit and exceptional breathability
  • BioMoGo DNA midsole brings heightened responsiveness to super-soft cushioning
  • Guide Rails support system encourages natural motion of knees and hips, reducing chance of injury over time

Comfortable and supportive

I walk and ride my bike often, so these shoes are great for me. This is my 3rd pair purchased in the past year, and they give me the support and comfort I need for my long history of plantar fascitis and bunions. I wear them with my orthotics. My only complaint is that the treads in the soles wear out quickly, so it happens that I have to get a new pair every 3-4 months, which is expensive. I assume this is the case for any athletic shoe, unfortunately.

Disappointing 2021 product

I've been a solid customer for the Brooks Adrenaline for about 12 years. Every year has been very satisfactory in fit, style, color, performance and comfort. Until now. This is the second year that I have had only one option for color. I realize being a size 10.5 Narrow in women's doesn't open the doors for an amazing array of color selections, but limiting it to exactly one choice, take-it-or-leave-it, is not customer friendly. Also, I've been relegated to ordering online only, not because of pandemic or supply chain issues but because my local store doesn't stock narrow widths. The final strike of disappointment is the comfort level. It does not live up to its predecessors in the feel of the padding comfort. Rather, the shoe has a hard stiffness that feels like the cushioning was shortchanged. The GTS 20 had a much superior comfort factor compared to this year's offering. I hope next year's product is a throwback to the GTS 20.

Go To Distance Shoe

The Brooks Adrenaline have been my go to shoe for longer runs and races for a few years! Good cushioning, and excellent support ( if you over pronate like me). I plan to continue wearing this shoe!

Great shoe. My feet are slightly wide and they fit well. Comfortable. Good cushioning all way to toes.
