Brooks’ Trance 11 delivers a completely plush feel from heel to toe with a smooth transition by utilizing Brooks’ latest and greatest technologies. The full length caterpillar crash pad provides an exceptionally smooth lay-down while the foam constructed saddle conforms to the foot for a custom fit.
Upper: Moisture managing Element mesh sweeps away sweat to keep your foot dry and comfortable. Microfiber and synthetic overlay materials provide optimum durability. Moisture managing Element lining ensures an ultra comfortable fit.
Midsole: Full-length Brooks DNA is a groundbreaking cushioning material that provides a customized ride for runners of all sizes and speeds that responds to every step, dispersing impact and providing ideal comfort and protection as the pace changes. Full-length BioMoGo enhances the already plush ride in an environmentally friendly packaged that will decompose up to 50 times faster once it hits the landfill. A tri-density Progressive Diagonal Rollbar is biomechanically engineered to provide progressive pronation control and create smoother transitions from the midstance phase into the propulsion phase. DRB® Accel, a shank-like thermoplastic device, provides torsional rigidity to the midfoot, enhancing support while allowing the heel and forefoot to act independently. Full-length S257 Cushsole is a durable, energy-efficient midsole compound utilized as an insole board for even more cushioning and flexibility. Full-length Caterpillar Technology is a segmented crash pad that customizes the individual’s lay-down with just the right amount of cushion and stabilization, giving the runner a sooth heel to toe transition. Omega Flex Groove enhances the flexibility of the midsole and provides an effortless forefoot ride while still offering great cushioning and midsole integrity. The unique shape of the Omega Flex Groove allows it to dynamically flex without compromising cushioning. When at rest it supports the shoe, when it’s flexing, the groove opens up to allow greater flexibility. Brooks’ Tuned Density Midsole better corresponds with gender and weight categories, delivering a custom balance of cushioning that’s not too soft or stiff. Built on Brooks’ Universal Platform. Removable Profile Sockliner enhances comfort and fit.
Outsole: HPR Plus is a high durability, abrasion-resistant rubber outsole compound that wears longer. Forefoot Stable Pod Configuration is engineered to set the foot in an efficient, balanced position from heel strike to toe-off, offering maximum stability and responsiveness. A blown rubber forefoot provides a soft, smooth ride. Strategically placed in the forefoot of the outsole, Flextra is a rubber piece that varies in the degree of support to correspond with gender and weight categories, providing tuned flexibility.
Available in width D (Medium).

"”Ooh la la!” That’s Cheryl Miller, an 80 mile a week runner from East Lansing, gushing about the Trance 11. “I felt as if I wear running on clouds.” Miller isn’t our only smitten wear tester: 26 out of 29 rated this shoe above average or better. Credit the rave notices to smart cushioning. Brooks has essentially made three versions of the Trance, each with a varying amount of foam density in the midsole. The women’s version uses the softest, lowest density amount because women have lower body masses and do not need a thick, firm sole. By contrast, there’s a firmer version for midsize guys (men up to a size 10.5 foot), and the even bigger guys get the firmest, most dense foam of all. The result? Each pair of the Trance feels like it’s made just for you. Because, in a way, it is. Bottom line, [the Trance 11 is] a shoe suited for bigger runners with normal to flat arches."
