Here are the top 3 Brooks women’s running shoes.
Brooks Women's Glycerin 9 Running Shoe
This upgrade from the Runner’s World Editors Choice award-winning Glycerin 8 shoe is great for runners who need a neutral shoe. Brooks DNA cushioning runs throughout the midsole providing extra comfort. They have also introduced Omega flex grooves in this shoe, which provide greater flexibility. The grooves also improve gait efficiency, ensuring a smooth run that effortlessly balances support and cushion. This shoe retails for around $130.
Brooks Women’s PureCadence
This shoe is part of Brooks’ PrueProject, a line of running shoes that are lightweight and flexible and are designed for a more natural stride. However, this shoe does not neglect support in the quest for lighter weight. There are features like the internal PDRB that help prevent overpronation and a wider Nav Band that adds greater stability. All this while being a lightweight, flexible, and breathable shoe. Because of the efficiency of materials and the shoe’s light weight, runners should expect a road life of 250 to 300 miles.
Brooks Women's Launch
This shoe won the Runner’s World “Best Debut” award in 2010 and customers have been singing its praises ever since. This light weight, neutral trainer is perfect for all your running needs, for everything from a leisurely morning run to a race. It is equipped with hydroflow cushioning in the front and back to make for smooth, comfortable running. It also has an outsole made of highly durable rubber to minimize wear. This allows you to get more out of the shoe as it wears down slower than most competitor's.
