Meet the newly retired Brooke

627 kilometres and 7 months. That’s how much a beating my Brookes GTS-12 Adrenalines have taken before biting the dust.

Here’s a look at the tread.

Looking a bit used now.

They’ve held up fairly well, though the mid-sole now feels like a brick while I’m out running. The springyness has gone. These guys will be retired to the occasional outdoor working in the garden shoe.

Here’s the new member of the family – a pair of 2013 Asics GTS-2000.

While I could have gone the Brookes again – I am a fan of their shoes – it’s time for a change and the GTS-2000s are slightly lighter than the new Brookes. I’ll test them out for a bit, hopefully they’ll serve me as well as the Brookes did.
