OverviewThe Trance gives a good combination of a lot of cushioning and support. The shoe also has an upper that gives a secure fit while also feeling soft and flexible where it needs to be. More for logging up lots of miles than for faster running but the shoe does give very good comfort.
Road Race Suitability
Nice Long Run Shoe
The only drawback is the plastic material covering much of the upper. This does not allow the shoe to breathe as much as some other shoes which use less solid material.
Conversely, this characteristic makes the shoe extra good in cool/cold weather.
I use these for marathon training and like them enough to buy another pair. My first pair of Brooks.
i'm 83 kg and 1,82. I run 40 to 60 km/week and used to run in adidas (supernova 10) and asics (nimbus).
I bought this shoes last week. It looks great and tight enough at the ankle.
I tested it on saturday (8 km slowly on road) and then the day after (24 km).
My first impression is that it's a hard shoe but still confortable even after 15 or 20 km. For the moment, I can't tell if it's worth 150 €, but I've a few runs scheduled this week and I'll let you know (tempo running, interval).
