Our verdict

A lovely old-school racing shoe. Firm and fast, they should be good for more than the reported 100 mile max.

First impressions

Like an old school racing shoe with the added benefits of a Carbon plate, this shoe is a perfect alternative for those that prefer their racing shoes to feel a little firmer and more aggressive. The plate certainly gives a noticeable toe-off and you know it means business. 

The brand initially said the shoe was only good for around 100miles, but having covered almost twice that in them with little signs of wear, we’d say they are going to be good for many more fast miles to come!


There is a carbon plate sandwiched between two layers of DNA ZERO. This is newest foam from Brooks, and also their lightest. The shoe is surprisingly stable (a big problem with some shoes carrying carbon plates) and you should be able to run through your usual gait.


An attractive super-light mesh engineered upper will keep the air flowing while offering just enough support.


Rubber strategically placed to offer grip and durability.


A super fast racing shoe. Brooks say they will be good for just 100miles, we suggest you might be able to get double that given our racing so far in the Hyperion Elite.
