The Bedlam is the Brooks running shoe you’ve been waiting for.
Designers structured the Bedlam with next-generation Guide Rails to lead your feet into proper alignment. The rails also reduce heel and shin rotation, which keeps excess knee motion in check.
Brooks borrowed the DNA AMP midsole from the Levitate 2 and slotted it into this stability running shoe. The midsole is lauded for its ability to conserve energy, so you feel fresher for longer. Plus, engineers wrapped the Bedlam in a highly adaptable Fit Knit upper to accommodate a wide range of foot shapes.
The result of Brooks’ work is a serious running shoe with stability features worked in—not the other way around.

I had been running in Ghosts but wanted something with more support to use for the group exercise classes I teach (mainly BodyAttack). These have been the best shoes I’ve found yet. Great ball of the foot support and they have been good for side to side movement. Very happy with them! I did size down .5 from my ghost size - the toe box fits my almost wide feet well.
The bedlam needs more cushion.
I am getting ready to order my 3rd pair of these shoes in the past year!!! LOVE THEM!!!!
