Brooks Adrenaline GTS History

Too often in the past have we witnessed footwear brands ruin perfectly good running shoes by attempting to “improve” them for the sake of marketing. Fortunately, that isn’t the case for Brooks and its “go-to shoe,” the Adrenaline GTS.

Over the last decade and a half, the Adrenaline GTS line has single handedly carried the torch for Brooks Running—something the shoe continues to do so even today with its 14th installment. Designed specifically to cater to moderate overpronators who require the perfect balance between cushioning and support, the GTS has built up a huge reputation for being one of the premiere stability running sneakers on the market.

After making its debut just prior to the turn of the 21st century, the series has continued to improve year after year without straying from its key identity, building a cult following in the process. Key updates (both in the aesthetics and performance department) along the way have warranted numerous accolades for the GTS, and Brooks itself has been awarded for its efforts by strong sales (1.6 million pairs sold and counting) year on end.

This is the story of the Brooks Adrenaline GTS—a shoe that has held a close place in the hearts of all of us who’ve had the pleasure of running in it; a modest yet effective shoe that has proved to have enough cushioning and stability to hold it down for average runners and billionaire social networking gurus alike. We see you Mark Zuckerberg.
