Sole Technology

  • Outsole Technology

The outsole of the latest Brooks Adrenaline GTS features rubber compound. The sturdy rubber guarantees excellent resistance to wear and tear and hence, increases the longevity of your shoes. The outsole construction is such that if provides excellent traction on various paved surfaces.

  • Midsole Technology

For improved cushioning, the midsole of the Brooks Adrenaline GST 19 running shoes features not only BioMoGo DNA, but also an enhanced soft-cushioning called DNA Loft. The BioMoGo DNA midsole cushioning remains the same as Brooks Adrenaline GTS 18 running shoes. It adapts to your stride and works with the DNA Loft to provide you with a soft, bouncy feeling. The cohesive Segmented Crash Pad provides you with a subtle landing that works well with all foot types. It also provides a stable heel-to-toe traction. The GTS 18 running shoes come with a shallow heel that does not provide adequate support. The more flexible heel foam provides you with a quicker transition.

What’s new?

The new running shoes come with a GuideRails support system that delivers smart support and emphasizes on steadiness at the most injury prone location in a runner’s leg – the knees. The GuideRails system has replaced the Progressive Diagonal Rollbar and provides runners with versatile support. If you’re a neutral runner, you can make the most of the GuideRails system if your stride is falling out of place.

The best and the most useful thing about the GuideRails support system is that it greatly reduces added shin and heel rotation to maintain the natural movement of your knees, so you can run stress-free, without discomfort and pain.

The two significant parts of the GuideRails support system are:

  • An interior wall to alleviate the calcaneal eversion.

  • An exterior wall to limit enhanced calcaneal fluctuation.


The upper of the running shoes is much more streamlined and nominal than the upper of GTS 18 running shoes. The upper features a slick mesh with better breathability and stretchiness in the forefoot. When compared to the GTS 18 shoes, the upper looks less luxurious. Brooks has added a 3D Fit Print to the existing engineering mesh upper to provide enhanced stretch and an excellent fit.


The new running shoes come with a pretty typical fit and then engineered mesh upper offers more room for broader feet. It’s almost same as the GTS 18 running shoes on the heels; however, at the forefoot, they’re a bit more tapered. The toe box is extremely generous in volume and accommodative too. The arch is reduced in the new GTS 19 running shoes. So, if you prefer a deeper arch during brisk walking or running, you can use insoles or orthotic arch support.


The shoes are lightweight. You won’t feel any increase in the weight from the GTS 18 running shoes.


The shoes are true to their size. However, if your size is an “in-between size,” you can go for a smaller size for an ideal fit.


The price of the latest running shoes can vary between $129 and $160 () depending upon the size you choose. There is not much difference between the price of Brooks Adrenaline GTS 18 and GTS 19 running shoes.
