FitGear Review: Brooks Adrenaline GTS 15 Kaleidoscope
Brooks has been my #1 for quite some time. During 5Ks, slow days + even half marathons, Brooks has pulled through to give me more support + stability than a boyfriend ever could. ++ the new Brooks Adrenaline GTS 15 Kaleidoscope is no different.
Kaleidoscope is a limited edition collection of Brooks’ best-selling Adrenaline GTS model that delivers on both style + performance. They don’t call it the GTS – go-to shoe – for nothing!
With added cushioning + arch support, these Brooks will keep your feet happy on mile two, mile 20, + everything in between. Brooks even updated the shoe’s crash pad, which will keep your runs smooth — no matter where you’re running this spring + summer.
I introduced these shoes to my training line-up, expecting to have to break them in for a couple weeks before really giving them all I’ve got. But after my first run in the Kaleidoscope, I retired my old Brooks Ravenna 5s [which is saying something because I have been holding onto those Ravennas for about 500 more miles than I should have, whoops. *wide-eye emoji*]. They provide plenty of stability + they don’t irritate my feet because there are no sew-overlays.
If that wasn’t enough, these shoes up any FITionista’s style. I had girls + guys compliment me on them! With a look like they’re covered in confetti, these shoes have the ability to go with any of your favorite running tights, which is ideal for any CHAARG girl loving the athelisure trend.
Give yourself an end-of-the-semester treat + add these shoes to your summer training. If you’re anything like me, it’s probably time to invest in a new pair. Most running shoes should be retired after 400 to 600 miles, depending on the terrain you run on. In essence, these shoes aren’t even a treat; they’re a necessity. ; )
*FIT-TIP: These babies tend to run half of a size small, so be sure to take that into consideration when you’re adding them to your closet. Or just head to your local FinishLine + they’ll be happy to make sure you have the right fit.
